The best thing about Dixo's is its great location, very close to the river. The view from the terrace overlooking the city is very beautiful. The free breakfast of cereal, milk, rolls, juice, nutella, and cheese is a nice touch. Unfortunately for us, it was an average of 90 degrees Fahrenheit throughout our stay, which made being in the hostel...

We enjoyed our stay very much. The breakfast was good, there was a great and helpful service. Everything was clean. It is located directly in the touristic center, that you do not have to walk a lot. The best thing was the terrace on top of the roof with a view over the whole city.

I passed there the festivities of Saint John with my friends and it was an amazing experience: the owners treated us like kings. As clean as your mother´s house, super cute and amazing international environment. Highly recommended. Thanks for this amazing experience!

Brand-new hostel in an ancient building. Great position between the cathedral and the Douro river. Warm and welcoming staff, good breakfast. There is no elevator, but don't miss the view from the terrace: it's AMAZING!

Extremely friendly staff, beautiful old building right in the heart of porto. Rooms were really clean and so were the shared bathrooms. The best part is the sense of community the staff promotes with the BBQ's, roof terrace and their willingness to go the extra mile to show us where all the local specialties can be found, Great hostel to...

Like most commenting on this Hostel I had a brilliant experience. Stayed at Dixo's for three nights and it was super cruisy. Rocked up and waited a bit in the reception area which is rather sweet living room style, couch, books, magazines, guitar, TV, music section and endless travel info. Joana on reception was brilliant, showed me to my room...

The views of the old town and river are a memorable way to start the day from the roof terrace. Checking-in in the early hours of the morning, I was given a warm but efficient welcome. The staff were consistently friendly and helpful (gave me a really good recommendation for roast chicken dinner). Is in a great location near the...

It is really one of the best hostels I ever stayed. The rooms are very good and clean, staff is incredibly helpful and friendly, location of the hostel is very good as well, close to the restaurants and tourist attractions, breakfast was good (the bread is incredibly good!) The only minus (very tiny one though) was kind of too fresh...

I've traveled a lot throughout my life. I always stay in hostels, so I've seen quite a few, but none like Dixo's hostel. Honestly, I have never felt more welcomed and taken care of in a hostel in my life. Joanna and her brother are absolutely the nicest people you will ever meet. On my first night they cooked me...

I had the chance to stay at Dixo's from the 1st to the 3rd of May, 2013. The purpose of trip was to show my country to a group of foreigners from my MBA program.

“No real preference. There are many floors, so if you're lazy to climb - pick one lower. Then again - kitchen is upstairs, so you'll climb there in the morning anyway :)”
