Good sized double, individually decorated by a local artist, with ensuite & aircon. Simple self-serve breakfast included which can be eaten in a lovely sun-trap of a courtyard.
Lovely little bar to meet & chat with fellow guests. Delightful staff, welcoming, helpful & full of smiles!

Pretty much a hotel with hostel style rooms and bunks. Very comfy beds and some of the nicest sheets I've ever had. Bunks very sturdy, spacious rooms and gallery-eske aethetics. Very helpful and friendly staff. Free breaky with many items to choose from and quite healthy. A bit loud throughout due to wooden floorboards (ie. When people are moving around the dorm rooms) but adds to the building's personality. Computers to do some web browsing, a little library, cute bar area with a little cinema and music room off that. A great stay in a wonderful city....highly recommend! Special shoutout to Alex who checked us in and was really helpful, and to Paulo who took us on the walking tour and recommended a great winery to try in the Douro Valley.

It was a nice hostel with the staff genuinely there 24 hours at your service. The facilities seem interesting and fun; however, that was about it. The dormitory rooms were as like any other hostel. Cleanliness in the room, especially the bathrooms are the ones that need the most improvement. Perhaps also offering generic shampoo and body soap would be great, as well!

We had a private room in the sister hotel across the road. Our room was very spacious and comfortable, especially the bed. There was a nice garden. The staff were all extremely helpful.
That's about it.

I had a great stay in Gallery Hostel, this place has a great atmosphere not only because of a very welcoming and helpful stuff but also because of the coziness of the whole building.
Beds are very comfortable, rooms are very clean and the breakfast, which is included in the price, is delicious! You can also get a drink in their bar or watch a movie in the cinema room.
The stuff does a free walking tour around the city's main attractions which is really good if you are not staying in Porto long enough to see everything by yourself. What I also liked was the location. It is very close to the city center and the streets are not busy during the night.
I would definitely recommend staying at this place!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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.
