The Gallery Hostel is set in a privileged area of Oporto, known for its art galleries and modern shops, at a walking distance from the main points of interest in the city centre such as museums, monuments, gardens, restaurants and bars. Located in Rua Miguel Bombarda, the Hostel is established in an historical building with more than 100 years old, which just went through a renewal in order to respond to our guest’s needs and expectations. With high standards of comfort and carefully decorated, you will find a familiar and cosy atmosphere, complemented by a multilingual and professional team. Composed by several types of rooms, the Gallery Hostel is divided in two sections. You can choose between staying in the main building in a 6 or 4 people bedroom, or in one of our Garden Suites, always offering a privileged privacy. In the main building, each room is named after the most renowned artists of Oporto such as Sophia Mello Breyner, Almeida Garrett, Julio Resende, Silva Porto, Siza Vieira and Souto Moura. Also creating an original feeling of the city and enhancing local culture, the Garden Suites are named after the main Oporto city parks (Cordoaria, Botânico, Serralves and Palácio de Cristal). Our services and common areas have also been developed in order to satisfy any need the guest might have. You can choose listening to music and drink Portuguese wine in our Lounge Bar, watch a DVD in our Movie Theatre or play a game, surf on internet or read a book in our Library, have a chat or chill out in our interior gardens, enjoy a meal in our open kitchen and breakfast area, between others.

A cool hostel, budget friendly and within walking distance to the centre. Really nice space in converted Portuguese house. Went with my brother. Hostel rooms were nice and spacious. One of the better hostels I've stayed in.

I stayed here for 4 nights while exploring Porto. Since I was on a budget I really appreciated their good nightly rate, excellent breakfast, and extra amenities (computers for guests to use, locker with a key in the dorm room). Being in a dorm can be difficult depending on how

Here in Gallery Hostel we believe that comfort is a priority so that our guests feel at home.

We had a very nice private room. We loved the art work and the kitchen, lounge areas, bar, "free" city tour and youthful staff. The other guests were a mix of youthful and mature travelers. We had a great 10 Euro group dinner (including wine, many appetizers, and dessert)
