Hostelworld says

As the name suggests, Gallery Hostel Porto is a beautiful hostel filled with original art and located in an area surrounded by art galleries. It’s about 10 minutes’ walk from the centre. Hostelworld guests have said they’d definitely recommend this hostel, ’especially if you like art and music’. This hostel features a summer terrace and winter garden, very friendly staff and ensuite dorms. We particularly like their delicious nightly Portuguese dinners, which cost around €10.

Property Description

Welcome to your home in Porto! The Gallery Hostel & Home, 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.

Great hostel with an amazing breakfast! Definitely a great place to stay for a couple of days. Only thing is that the main house is pretty loud, i.e. even with two doors separating the beds from the hallways you can still hear every word spoken and every step taken on the stairs. But honestly that is the only thing! Definitely recommend staying here.

During this trip, i stayed in 9 different hostels. Gallery hostel is by far the best in terms of room layout, showers, toilets, lockers and change room are separated from the sleeping area, so this maintains privacy and keeps noise down. The premise if neat and well maintained. Breakfast is very well. Beds have individual lights, outlets and USB chargers. Bathroom and showers are of very good quality. Staff are very friendly. About 15 minutes walk from down town

Favorite hostel I’ve ever stayed at! Great location and atmosphere. My favorite part was that lockers were in the bathroom area so you don’t wake your roommates when you come in.

Gallery Hostel Porto says

I think what makes is really special is our bar, where guests can enjoy well-chosen beverages; we prepare daily homemade dinners with different themes such as typical Portuguese dishes, variety of tapas and port wine tasting. We also have our own art gallery with bimonthly-changing exhibitions of Portuguese artists. We're a part of the local community in our wonderful artistic neighbourhood, which brings you closer to the authentic Portuguese culture. Plus our home cinema is muuuch more comfortable than a movie theatre ;) We welcome guests of all ages who value comfort, friendly service and are interest in different cultural aspects such as good food, wine, art etc.
