This is one of the most attractive hostels I have stayed in. The spiral staircases lead upwards towards immaculate rooms and bathrooms. Everything was very clean. The toilet cubicles are very small so if you are tall like me, then you may end up cramped. Staff at reception are multilingual and always happy to help. There is a large courtyard...

Located in the heart of Santa Catarina, about 3 minutes walk from the metro station. Rooms and shared spaces are clean, comfortable and well designed, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. You will definitely make friends or at least have some nice conversations there, the kitchen and the garden are really vibrant.

One of the most beautiful hostels in Portugal in the city center with beautiful inside design and friendly owners. Good breakfast is included. Really cool music on reception. I wanted to use Shazam every time downstairs. Bonus! You can always enjoy the view on nice host guy who looks like Lenny Kravitz in youth)

This hostel is perfect if you want somewhere clean, spacious, comfortable, and conveniently located to the metro and walking distance to most things downtown. The back courtyard is truly serene... try bringing your breakfast out there and enjoying the morning sun as the owner steps out to peacefully water the plants. You can certainly make friends here, or simply sit...

This hostel was really good. The service was great: from the simpathy and helpness of the staff, the quality of the rooms and the facilities in geral. The beds were a surprise, being probably more confortable than the beds of more expensive hotels I've slept in.

As I was doing my first "on-m-own-trip" I was very nervous how it's going to be. My first stop was in Garden House Hostel and I could not imagine having a better start than I had here. The rooms are big but also cozy, very clean and the service there is just awesome. The people working there are very helpful...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Garden House Hostel is a new hostel in Oporto. Located in the heart of the old city, in the famous Rua de Santa Catarina, a pedestrian street where you can feel the Oporto essence, visit a wide range of restaurants, shops and cafes, as the well known "Cafe Majestic", an Art Nouveau icon where artists and intellectuals meet for a "cimbalino" (expresso). Also within walking distance are all the museums, Port wine cellars, the Douro River and the cool Oporto nightlife. After a day of walking and sightseeing, nothing feels better than returning to the beautiful 19th century house where the Garden House Hostel is installed. The building has been fully restored and improved, with all the modern commodities, and has a wonderful garden where you can relax, have a glass of wine, read a book... feel at home in a cozy, warm and friendly atmosphere! From the Hostel you can catch the riverside tram to the sea and the beaches at "Foz". With its restaurants, bars and promenade, you can enjoy the sun in one of the iconic places of Oporto. In the summer don't forget to pack your sunscreen and beach towel! ... more   less
