    Wonderful staff! Susana and two of the morning staff (one might have been named Gabriela?) were so helpful trying to locate a package I had sent from the US to their hostel. Very kind, friendly, and helpful people, and I also enjoyed the beds, the comfy and welcoming reception area, the showers, and the terrace. Thank you So Cool Hostel!

    Stayed a night here everything was perfect, went to see Captain Marvel and that however, was not perfect. No cohesive plot line, pointless dialogue, and a main character who delivered one liners like Kristen Stewart. 3/10 for subjectively the worst Marvel movie to date. So cool Porto though, So Cool.

    Decent location - close to Metro station. Breakfast was great. Room was spacious. Complementary lockers were nice. Towels provided. Bathrooms are clean. It was relatively empty which was really nice. You can drink your own alcohol. Reception area has tons of information about Porto. Samantha was really helpful. Thank you

    Just the perfect Hostel. Made good friends, staff really nice and the room was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom could be warmer but it's just a tiny detail. If I go to Porto again definitely will be staying there.

    Totally recommend it. Amazing hostel. Nice atmosphere. Nice and helpful staff. Good breakfast. Comfortable beds. The showers are separated by sex but the showers are opaque and you can see inside. The toilets are really small.

    Very Good

    This was an interesting hostel. I would stay here again. Showers had a good amount of space. The breakfast was good, and the common room was quite nice for doing anything from watching TV to having a casual drink and talking. My only real criticisms are that the bathrooms were small and there was not outlets for top bunk people.
