The staff are friendly and make an effort to speak and make you feel comfortable. The bedroom and bathroom facilities are the best ive experienced for a hostel at a very good...

If you are looking for a great and a fun hostel to stay at, you're on a wrong address. It's really much more of a hostel for slower and quiet audience (which is quite a shame since it has enormous potential, especially with the roof terrace). Only thing I do not like, is stairs, stairs, stairs...

The location is absolutely fantastic - right in the centre of Porto. The private rooms were fine, and there were never any queues for the shared bathrooms as far as I could tell. Breakfast was basic, but fine for the amount that you pay for it. Altogether great value.
