    I stayed at So Cool Hostel for 5 nights and would fully recommend it. I’ve stayed over COVID and they are limiting rooms to 50% capacity. The hostel is really easy to get to from the airport, direct tube only 2 minutes walk away. All areas of my the hostel were spotlessly clean and they have free breakfast and free towels. The tube is on the door step to get around but I walked everywhere no problems. Staff super helpful.

    This place is very nice, clean and safe. It's about a 20 minute walk or a couple of stops on the metro away from Porto center, in a quiet and safe neighborhood. They are being very strict about Covid rules and restrictions, unlike some other hostels in the city. Also you have to be out of the rooms from 11 until 3:30 for cleaning, and the hours are very precise. This was fine for me but may be more difficult for some people! They also have free breakfast which is lovely but don't be late!
