A warm welcome early in the morning, a very nice hostel and leaving room, an awesome kitchen, breathtaking rooftop ... This is the place where you want to stay in Porto ! The staff gave us really good advice for lunch & diner and there is a good atmosphere in this house (even if there is no lift ;-)

It's the best hotel's concept that i've ever been. It's like a share flat of students, but very big and confortable. You can play guitar, or console, or watch movies... The breakfast is good. The staff is young. It's very close to the center of the city.

Very nice hostel with a strategic position in order to visit Porto, near the train station, the underground and the bus terminal. Great idea to decorate every room with a different theme based on a famous movie: the rooms are simple but comfortable, there're heaters and WiFi. The common spaces are amazing, the living room as big couches and tv...

Just an all-round excellent hostel, friendly, excellent facilities, amazing location and very cheap. The atmosphere was exceptionally warm and the events organised each night make this an ideal spot for solo travellers. Strongly recommended.

The Noise Mainly come from the walking steps from other mates, banging toilet doors, doorbell from outside ( the main entrance is locked from 12mn onwards so all guest will need to ring the bell). I am not a light sleeper so the noise from road didn't affect much. The Bed This is the worst bed I ever slept. The...

Excellent location, friendly staff, great atmosphere. Beautiful terrace. Good breakfast. The locker wasn't working properly, but it kept locked. Got crabs and was not from sex. I guess it lacked hygiene or I was just not lucky.
