Just an all-round excellent hostel, friendly, excellent facilities, amazing location and very cheap. The atmosphere was exceptionally warm and the events organised each night make this an ideal spot for solo travellers. Strongly recommended.

The Noise Mainly come from the walking steps from other mates, banging toilet doors, doorbell from outside ( the main entrance is locked from 12mn onwards so all guest will need to ring the bell).

Excellent location, friendly staff, great atmosphere. Beautiful terrace. Good breakfast. The locker wasn't working properly, but it kept locked. Got crabs and was not from sex. I guess it lacked hygiene or I was just not lucky.

This hostel is directly in the heart of Porto, maybe 200m to the next metro station and 500m to the train station. You can get to all the main sights by walking. The staff is very friendly and helpful, rooms are clean and spacious, there's a big living room with flat screen and music, that's where all the life is...

Good, clean hostel with a great rooftop terrace which sometimes has parties and live music at weekends. Very friendly staff and a great location near the centre of town, with free walking tours available and a worthwhile pub crawl. Excellent communal kitchen and lounge.

You can hang with the supercool staff in this very clean, calm and chilling hostel in the middle of the town. In case you want to have a break in sightseeing. You will have a lot of energy after breakfast (the morning cakes made my day) and you can join their evening programs. If you are solo you can meet&...
