We visited Porto for 4 days and 4 nights in late February. We were four college-age girls backpacking for a spring break trip, and the Porto Downtown Hostel was perfect.

The location of the hostel is good with restaurants and bars all around. The first night we stayed in a private room with two beds, which was nice. The next night we stayed in a six bed dorm, which obviously wasn't as good. For the value, I was okay with it. I had to pay €2 for a towel the...

Found this hostel just by chance at a noisy place, right in the middle of the main partying and pubscene in Porto. It's at the first floor of an old house but it looks inside really much better as outside my friends. There is aan elevator behind a curtain but thisone is not working for sure so take the stairs...

Rita welcomed us at reception and it felt like we were home. The people u meet while traveling make all the difference. Rita, Vera and Barbara do a wonderful job making everything easier. Their recommendations were spot on and their smiles always brighten the day. Fantastic. Highly recommended.

We were introduced to this hostel from information center. When we stepped in Vera gave is great welcome. She was so fabulous and outgoing which are not so rare in hostel staff. Five stars for Downtown hostel staff. Location is great since it was close to center the downtown yet it may be noise at night due to late parties...
