Hostelworld says

Porto Spot Hostel is very highly rated here on Hostelworld for its friendly, helpful and sociable staff, who host nightly dinner, guest-recommend walking tours and popular pub crawls. One Hostelworld traveller told us ‘the hostel is the right size to get to know everybody staying and big enough to party every night’, while many guests say they’d stay here again because of the home-like atmosphere. This hostel is located in Old Town, just five minutes’ walk from the Capela das Almas and about 15 minutes from Porto Cathedral.

Property Description

Porto Spot Hostel offers great rooms, great fun in an architectural milestone, fully refurbished for your comfort. Porto Spot Hostel is here to surprise you.

Located in the city center, in a 5 min walk from the airport tube, Spot is close to all the beauties of this world heritage city: Clerigos Tower, Old town, Port Wine cellars, night life (at a sound proof distance). Our friendly staff will love to give you all the tourist information, and also those hints you won't find in a guide.

The building was constructed in 1935, and was designed by Armenio Losa, well known Portuguese architect. It is one fine example of Estado Novo, a Portuguese style born out of Art Deco. The refurbishment respected the building's originality, adding the expectable amenities of modern comfort. The rooms are spacious, each one with its unique decoration, with key card access, large beds and free security lockers. We also offer you a bar and a nice patio where you can rest at the end of your day, and where we serve our famous dinners daily.

A fully equipped kitchen is available, were you can cook your meal if you ever get tired of the fantastic food you will find around town (ask our staff for tips). The living room and the media room will also make your delights. The hostel offers free internet points and free wi-fi is fully available inside the house.

We also have a tourist corner where you can find information about the city and its surroundings. Our staff will be more than happy to give you tips on the places you can't miss, and make you a tailor made routing for your stay.

In selected days we organise walking tours, for you to get to know those special places only locals know. We also organise pub crawls, to be sure you have the best night Porto can offer.

From March 1st 2018, the Municipal Tourist Tax will be charged in the city of Porto, which consists of a charge of 2 euros per person per night and up to a maximum of 7 nights.

Great hostel! Central location to the airport metro station and main shopping streets, friendly staff, incredibly clean bathrooms and 8-person mixed rooms, and a nice free breakfast. Felt incredibly safe as a female solo traveler; would highly recommend.

Perhaps one of the best hostels I have stayed in the past 4 months traveling Europe. But my winter jacket went missing inside my dorm. Someone staying in the same dorm probably took it, and when I informed the hostel about this, they called the housekeepers, but couldn’t find the jacket. I think the hostel could have shown more effort by checking the security cameras, which is not a difficult thing to do.

Porto Spot Hostel says

I think that what puts us ahead of the rest is our outstanding facilities. We've got spacious rooms, large and comfortable beds, huge lockers, numerous spotless bathrooms and a fully-equipped kitchen, not to mention several social areas including a cinema room, a bar, balconies and an outdoor area where we serve breakfast and dinners on the sunny days. The real icing on the cake, though, is our staff. We all really aim to create a home-like atmosphere, with all the information and support you need when travelling. We're centrally located just two minutes' walk from the unique Bolhao Market and five minutes from Capela das Almas and the beautiful Café Majestic. I feel that no visit to Porto is complete without a visit to the Ribeira-the city's most famous and celebrated postcard. Most of our guests are aged 18 to 35 but we welcome anybody that's young at heart.
