    The Place was amazing. Staff was so nice and welcoming. Garden was huge with tables where you and your friends can eat and relax outside. We also had breakfast include with was nice and fresh. Would Definitely recommend if staying in Porto. Beach is a little far but an Uber costing you 5-7 Euros makes it a lot easier.

    So Cool is probably one of the nicest hostels I've stayed at for the low price. For 19 euro I stayed in an 8 bed Female dorm. Normally this would mean a cramped room, however, at So Cool the room was huge and very spacious. It also included an ensuite with 2 toilets and 3 showers and a large area with sinks and mirrors. This is very unusual for a budget hostel and was very convenient. Great location also and friendly staff. Breakfast is included too.

    Amazing hostel with great location. The rooms are pretty nice and overall atmosphere feels really comfortable. Staff is very nice and welcoming! easy to meet people. Breakfast is great :) Only complain would be the bathrooms, feels like there’s no privacy since the doors are basically see-through. Out of the 2 showers, 1 couldn’t close. The bathroom we had inside our room had no lock, light or soap (or even paper at one point). No wifi in the rooms. Apart from that, I would recommend :)

    I came at 9 am from a long trip in a bus and they didn't let me sleep until the checked in at 3 pm. They charged me to hold my bag which it never ever happened to me. The staff doesn't really know about prices of transportation, renting a bike, etc. After the check out at the lounge, Dario the tall guy with beard, told me I have 30 minutes to leave, which I found it extremely rude. Positive things: very clean overall, very good breakfast, dario lent me a phone charger.
