Hostelworld says

Oporto Poets Hostel is located less than five minutes? walk from the Ponte de Dom Luis I, Palacio da Bolsa, Porto Cathedral and much more. This hostel features stylish, air and uniquely designed rooms with secure underbed lockers, multiple common areas and free walking tours. Their multi-lingual staff serve a very budget friendly three-course meal with wine where ?the staff sit down and eat with you, including the chef, and it gives you the chance to meet local people?, according to our users. We like that they thoughtfully also offer free phrasebooks.

Property Description



Poets Inn is made by travellers for travellers, designed to offer comfort, pleasure and leisure, in the best location in town, where you can glimpse from one of our balconies breathtaking views while enjoying one of our books in your room...

Nobody but you can tell what a real home must be like, and this will definitely be your home in Porto. We will listen to your advice, and give you twice as much as you want.

Here you can find the latest standards of comfort and quality.

For those who wish to explore the city and its history, Porto's unique architecture, its parks and narrow alleys, or just relax in the many cafes and restaurants nearby, you couldn't be better located.

We are located 30 seconds from the "Torre dos Clérigos", ex-libris of the city, and the Lello Bookstore considered one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world, 2 minutes from the subway, the bus and train station (São Bento), and 2 minutes from the Aliados, our "living room" to welcome all travellers.



Welcome to the romantic city of Porto - known for its unique wine, its stunning views over the mouth of the Douro River, the old neighbourhoods and its fervent residents, always ready to help anyone - all of which will make your visit unforgettable. Portugal's second-largest city, located along the Douro River estuary in northern Portugal, Porto is one of Europe's oldest centres, and its historic riverside centre was registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996, a relic in the city. Its settlement dates back many centuries when it was an outpost of the Roman Empire. Its Latin name, Portus Cale, has been referred to as the origin of the name "Portugal," based on transliteration and vocal evolution from Latin

Very Good
Oct 13, 2023
The location is convenient to most touristic sites as well as São Bento station but street noise in the rooms is quite loud at night…and closing the windows and wooden shutters made the room very warm. The staff is friendly but only there in the mornings. They have notices that water and beer plus other things are available but there is no way to purchase anything after 1. Bathrooms are clean, good size towels but they rely on guests to wash their dishes..most with cold water.

Room with en-suite: very clean and comfortable, easy to access. Room with shared bathroom: good size room with balcony. Good views of the city from the top floor. Lots of stairs to climb. Shared bathroom clean but paper towel dispenser was not working. Used towels provided. Breakfast room was cozy.

This was hands down the best hostel I’ve ever stayed at. Super clean. Super safe. The staff we’re very friendly and helpful. I stayed in a queen size private room- that also had its own private bathroom. It was as nice as staying at a hotel. They even made the bed and cleaned up after my first night. You really couldn’t ask for more for only ~$50 a night.
