One word: recommendable! The location is okay, not in the very centre unfortunately. But there's a supermarket just 2 min away, what's perfect on the other hand. The staff is super friendly and the service is great! They offer a free city tour every day, which is ideal to get a first impression about what is where. There's dinner every...

The hostel is beautiful and very comfortable. It is liberally decorated with Visual art, but is rather modern, with a lot of modern glass surfaces on the inside. You can have independent rooms that are seriously close to a **** Hotel standard. This is where I slept. I can not comment on the shared rooms and what they looked like....

I rented a bed in a room for 6. Everything was great. Comfortable, clean, beautiful, well located. And people are the nicest. I loved breakfast, and you can have dinner for 10 euros (totally worth it). If you don't feel like going out, you can stay there and have a great time, cause it's very cozy, and there is a...

3.5 stars if I could but I'm being generous today. We had issues with our room (in the hotel section), namely the dampness and ants. Like lots of ants. At first I thought they were just in the bathroom but they turned up in the cupboards in the bedroom too. It's not a pleasant thing to worry about them getting...

very very friendly hostel, lovely interior spaces, not too large and fun without being a party place. I loved that the bunks had small shelves to put your glasses or whatever on while you slept and they all had outlets as well. Owner does a free walking tour that was very nice. Highly recommend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Gallery Hostel is set in a privileged area of Oporto, known for its art galleries and modern shops, at a walking distance from the main points of interest in the city centre such as museums, monuments, gardens, restaurants and bars. Located in Rua Miguel Bombarda, the Hostel is established in an historical building with more than 100 years old, which just went through a renewal in order to respond to our guest’s needs and expectations. With high standards of comfort and carefully decorated, you will find a familiar and cosy atmosphere, complemented by a multilingual and professional team. Composed by several types of rooms, the Gallery Hostel is divided in two sections. You can choose between staying in the main building in a 6 or 4 people bedroom, or in one of our Garden Suites, always offering a privileged privacy. In the main building, each room is named after the most renowned artists of Oporto such as Sophia Mello Breyner, Almeida Garrett, Julio Resende, Silva Porto, Siza Vieira and Souto Moura. Also creating an original feeling of the city and enhancing local culture, the Garden Suites are named after the main Oporto city parks (Cordoaria, Botânico, Serralves and Palácio de Cristal). Our services and common areas have also been developed in order to satisfy any need the guest might have. You can choose listening to music and drink Portuguese wine in our Lounge Bar, watch a DVD in our Movie Theatre or play a game, surf on internet or read a book in our Library, have a chat or chill out in our interior gardens, enjoy a meal in our open kitchen and breakfast area, between others. ... more   less
