Property Description

Welcome to your home in Porto! The Gallery Hostel, an award-winning boutique hostel nestled in the heart of Porto Art district, is the perfect location to begin your Portuguese adventure. Our unique property, which also serves as an art gallery, is considered by many as one of the best in Porto and the world.
Set in a restored 19th century building, Gallery Hostel provides guests with an authentic Portuguese experience and hospitality. The historic building, while maintaining its original blue tiles, a symbol of Portuguese architecture, was rehabilitated with a contemporary touch and comfort. Located in one of the trendiest quarters of Porto, Gallery Hostel is only a short walk from both the historic centre and Porto nightlife. In addition, one of Porto's most beautiful gardens, the Palacio de Cristal is located within 5 minutes walk, where you can spot peacocks! We are also conveniently situated between Lapa and Trindade metro stations, both a short walking distance.
Our home is the perfect place for travellers to relax after a day of adventure, to forge new friendships, and to enjoy a nice glass of Port wine! Our monthly calendar of events showcases various events happening around the city as well as events hosted at the hostel and at the GH Cafe & Restaurant.
We offer a selection of room categories ranging from 3-bed dorms to standard double/twin rooms, all with in-room shower facilities. Every room is carefully and uniquely designed to ensure the maximum comfort and style. Our dorms feature new custom-designed bunk-beds with built-in plugs, USB port, and individual lights. Each guest staying in a dormitory will be provided with a private locker equipped with a secure digital technology.
At the Gallery Hostel, the team is here to create a unique and memorable Portuguese experience for all our guests. Our friendly and multilingual staff may assist you at all times (24hr reception) with travel planning, dining reservations as well as any other requests our guests may have.

Overall excellent. The staff were exceptional. Only couple of gripes, no wall hooks in the shower and a phone or intercom in the stairwell to contact the reception (if there is a problem in the room) would be a help, especially on the top floor ( no lift, no problem otherwise).

Amazing Hostel! it felt like a hotel! Everything was super clean, beds super comfotrable, and all the ammenities are new & modern! The room was very large, so even though I was in a 6 bed dorm, it didn't feel crowded! The staff were so friendly and helpful with anything I asked. The location is about a 20 minutes walk from the historic center, in a really nice, hip yet quite neighborhood. It's a pretty quiet hostel socially, but I still managed to meet plenty of nice & friendly people.

Gallery Hostel Porto says

Creo que lo que nos hace realmente especiales es nuestro bar, donde los huéspedes pueden disfrutar de bebidas selectas y donde preparamos cenas caseras todos los días con diferentes temáticas como platos típicos portugueses, tapas variadas o degustación de vino de Oporto. También tenemos nuestra propia galería de arte con exposiciones rotatorias bimensuales de artistas portugueses. Formamos parte de la comunidad local de nuestro artístico y maravilloso barrio que te acercará a la auténtica cultura portuguesa. Además nuestra sala de cine es incluso muuucho más cómoda que un cine de verdad ;). Damos la bienvenida a los huéspedes de todas las edades que aprecien la comodidad, el trato amable y que estén interesados en diferentes aspectos culturales, como la buena comida, el vino, el arte, etc.
