Hostelworld says

The Cats Porto Party Hostel is located just around the corner from Sao Bento metro station and the funicular. It features a large rooftop terrace, a full kitchen and rooms which are all ensuite. We particularly like their bunk beds, with individual reading lights, power and usb sockets and underbed lockers. Hostelworld guests have highly recommended this hostel and say they?d stay here again; one guest told us, ?my favorite place was a terrace where we could sit in the evening having a drink and chatting with friends?.

Our three buildings are just 50 mts away from the São Bento metro station and just 10 minutes walking from Bolhao metro station (which has a link to the Airport). The main bus line (Rede Expressos) is just 15 minutes on foot.

Was okay but paid 30 Euros for a 10 bed dorm. Mould on the walls and was in a separate building. Would be acceptable if the price was less. Also, stayed here the night after as part of a group booking and our rooms weren’t cleaned / ready until 7pm - 4 hours late.

Cleanliness of the room wasn’t great as there was a lot of mould on the walls. The bathroom had doors missing and locks that didn’t work. Beds were comfy and staff were very friendly and helpful. Great value too.

Honestly, super great hostel! Location is very close to everything, and everything was very clean. The bar is cool, and the rooftop is an even better place to relax and meet some new people. Would definitely stay here again next time I visit Porto! Also, shoutout to Daniel for being an awesome bartender!!

Cats Hostel Porto says

I'd say our most unique features are our beds, each of which has orthopaedic mattresses, curtains, an individual fan, a reading light and a power socket. Plus there's ensuite bathrooms in all rooms. Did I mention our three-metre tropical aquarium? All the main attractions are within walking distance from our hostel. Within two minutes you can get to Se Cathedral, the Douro River, D. Luis Bridge, Sao Bento train and metro stations and the Rede Expresso bus service . I particularly recommend visiting the port wine caves in Ribeira de Gaia. They're about 15 minutes' walk away. Being the largest hostel in Porto, and having such a wide range of amenities and activities, we would say that this is not a traditional party hostel, although the night spots are only 10 minutes away. The main age group of our guests is between 25 and 35, but we have had had happy guests from ages 12 to 60 - many of our guests had never stayed in a hostel before. We can accommodate up to 15 people at a time who need disabled facilities. The entire building and all the common areas are accessible to them; we have an elevator and a wheelchair elevator platform.
