If you look for a place to sleep, with a small budget, and you don't mind the broken air conditioning, the noisy Street with traffic all night long, and the old dusty furniture, go for it. Nice location near city center.

Such a disappointment. We expected a nice and comfy hostel. We got a unlovely, dark room in a dark hostel. When we were in our room we didn´t see the blue sky and the sun, because our louvre didn´t work. It was a very dark room where we didn´t feel comfortable at all. In the morning the staff left, so...

Budget place for people, who don't want to spend to much time in hotel. Little dark (very dirty windows), smelly, old fashioned (it's good,but this furniture needs to be furbished). Friendly stuff, nice kitchen, close to the metro station. I was expected something better, but after long trip and few glasses of Porto wasn't that bad ;)

I payed 2 nights and i left after the first one. The rooms are very noisy, the blanket was dirty, i didn't feel safe to sleep there.The traffic from outside is very noisy, you feel like you are sleeping outside. I understand that it's a cheap place to stay, but at least to be decent. The walls are full of...

The Marfim is in good place, about 15 min from main attractions of the city. It's cheap, so you won't spend a lot of money. You should prepare yourself for quite old rooms in not really good conditions, but if you're in Porto to visit and have fun, then it's a perfect hotel just to sleep in. The staff is...

I found this hostel in august when Oporto was completely Booked. The staff was so warm and helpful; they gave us an accommodation and a lot of instructions to visit the city like portuguese people and not as tourist. There were so many guys from all over the world to meet and have fun. Recommended if you are young and...

Lovely place with kind staff.Christina, a very polite lady at the recipition, made my visit to porto more at ease. Very quite place, the rooms are big and full of space, bathroom is cleaned every day. It does not look like a hostel. In addition, it is closed to porto centre. I really enjoyed my stay and definitely I will...

The woman of the reception was incredibly kind with us. We felt welcomed. She suggested us really good place to eat and visit. The room was a little bit old but we had no problem with that!!! The location is good since you can walk almost everywhere from there.

Very close to metro station Lapa, and san Benito train station. Antique furniture. Spacious, clean living room and kitchen..!! Very informative lady, Mrs.Christina will explain the map and interesting places so thoroughly using photographs you actually don't have to research much before you go to Porto. She will even tell you what you must eat and drink in Porto again...

We were received by a very nice man, who showed us plenty of places to visit on the map. Unfortunately, our stay at Pensao Marfim went downhill from there... Our room was really humid when we arrived and we had to open the windows. The room was clean but there was a huge brown spot under one of the matresses...
