    My experience was excellent. Everything was absolutely perfect. Susanna and her staff were very polite, friendly and incredibly welcoming. They made me feel like I was home. I recommend it and I would stay there again. Thank you.

    Such a beautiful hostel! Comes with free lockers to secure your stuff in and everything was always so clean. The garden area was beautiful, and so nice to hangout it. Such a good location and I would definitely come back next time I’m in Porto :)

    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.

    I stayed here during my last few nights at the end of a three week solo trip. It's the perfect chill out spot. The backyard is beautiful - having a beer after a day of exploring was just perfect. The rooms were great. Plenty of bathrooms, which were regularly cleaned. Only weird thing, the bathroom walls are all frosted glass, for all the stalls, showers, etc - so even though you can't see your neighbour, you get a pretty good idea of what's going on in there. Free breakfasts were great too!

    Great hostel! Not the best location but has everything you need; towels, lockers, free breakfast. Not many outlets in the room, and the showers are made of glass, but overall great experience. Would recommend.

    Good location very close to metro line from the airport and only a few stops connection to city centre. Staff member was welcoming and helpful with information on check-in at 15.00, however the website booking confirmation did not mention that the reception was closed from 11.00 - 15.00 and I had arrived at 13.00 assuming I could leave my bag and return for check-in, but the premises were closed at this time!
