Reception 24 hours a day and late check -outs. Lugagge storage possible after check-out, lockers on the room. Clean common room and modern kitchen for use. Staff is really friendly, shows you around and...

We stayed 3 nights in this place, in a private room. Booking.com suggested the room would have a private bathroom, but this was not the case! Moreover a lot of things were broken: - the window couldn't close (which is real fun in a noisy neighborhood) - the air-conditioning was broken (luckily the weather was not too hot yet) -...

The best hostel I've been to so far, great atmosphere, location, breakfast, rooms could only be refreshed because it is an unpleasant smell, but if you go for a few days to explore the city and not sit in the hostel is great and I can honestly recommend it. Rafal with Polish

We went to this hostel for a few nights but this was just a horrortrip at all. And the noisy pup's all arround makes it not better only much more noisey. Staff is not interristet at all, exept money. Old bed from ikea and not really good for sleeping in the night.

Best hostel experience I've had so far. Friendly staff, and they organised a fantastic free tour of Oporto, with an exceptional tour guide. The amenities were of a good standard, and they had a kitchen for guest use. The location was good, just up the street from the bakery with the BEST Pasteis de Nata. A good atmosphere as well....

Great quality and great atmosphere, free breakfast. Met lots of people there and had a good time enjoying the great nightlife of Porto. Everybody in the hostel is nice and helpful, you even have a supermarket just at the exit of the guesthouse

Super convenient place. Nice restaurants right across the street, along with a bakery serving the best assortment of eclairs ever! A convenience store right at the entrance to the hostel. and the main bar street around the corner on the next street down the hill. The staff were all very cordial with me and I am 57.

The hostel itself is average, the dorm rooms are quite small and could be cleaner, but still OK. However, the staff is really friendly and the whole decor has a really nice and personal touch. Also, location is very close to the party streets (so bring earplugs or use your time to party yourself)
