The rooms were a little cold but this hostel felt like a home with welcoming common areas and nicely decorated rooms. The location was central, easy to get to from publiv transport from the airport and close to many stores and restaurants. Breakfast could be better but a great value for the price!

Good location, room was clean however the bathroom although it was clean had some visible mould on walls and floors also the shower head and door were broken. All this aside it was a pleasant stay. Staff very friendly. Would recommend this hostel, it just needs some maintenance work on bathrooms.

I was only here to sleep, I arrived late and left early to catch a flight. This was seriously unfortunate for me as it felt like I'd walked into a mansion, this was no ordinary hostel.

4 bed rooms average or above; my front room came with a lot of early morning traffic noise, so try for a rear room if you're a late sleeper. Staff friendly and helpful but not necessarily accommodating. Best social vibe of any hostel in which I've ever stayed - I'd recommend it simply for that.

I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights in a girls dorm, sleeping 4. This was my first experience travelling alone and apart from getting used to sharing a room with strangers who come in at different times of the night, it was a great first experience. The hostel was very clean, the shared areas very open, spacious and friendly... More

We stayed for 3 nights, paid a lot of money for a private room, it was clean and nice but extremely hot and so noisy - so we didn't get much sleep. The staff were somewhat helpful but not overly so. It was in a good location but not sure it's worth the big prices and the breakfast was not... More

Great atmosphere, staff are lovely & helpful, common areas are very friendly & relaxed. The whole hostel seemed very new & clean generally. I was in a three bed room which was very nice.

Stayed here for 2 nights with my husband in May 2016. We had a private room and private bath. It was on the top floor so a good number of steps without an elevator, but most people travel pretty light to stay in hostels so this shouldn't be an issue. Room was small but sufficient, clean, and comfortable. Shower was... More

I loved this hostel. After traveling all over Europe this semester I am still very impressive with the Porto Spot Hostel. We had a private room for two and it was very spacious and beautifully decorated. We also had an attached private bathroom that was very clean and modern.

Porto Spot Hostel offers great rooms, great fun in an architectural milestone, fully refurbished for your comfort. Porto Spot Hostel is here to surprise you.Located in the city center, in a 5 min walk from the airport tube, Spot is close to all the beauties of this world heritage city: Clerigos Tower, Old town, Port Wine cellars, night life (at a sound proof distance). Our friendly staff will love to give you all the tourist information, and also those hints you won't find in a guide.The building was constructed in 1935, and was designed by Armenio Losa, well known Portuguese architect. It is one fine example of Estado Novo, a Portuguese style born out of Art Deco. The refurbishment respected the building's originality, adding the expectable amenities of modern comfort. The rooms are spacious, each one with its unique decoration, with key card access, large beds and free security lockers. We also offer you a bar and a nice patio where you can rest at the end of your day, and where we serve our famous dinners daily.A fully equipped kitchen is available, were you can cook your meal if you ever get tired of the fantastic food you will find around town (ask our staff for tips). The living room and the media room will also make your delights. The hostel offers free internet points and free wi-fi is fully available inside the house.We also have a tourist corner where you can find information about the city and its surroundings. Our staff will be more than happy to give you tips on the places you can't miss, and make you a tailor made routing for your stay.Every day we organise walking tours, for you to get to know those special places only locals know. We also organise pub crawls, to be sure you have the best night Porto can offer. ... more   less
