My friend and I spent 3 nights here. The staff was helpful and friendly, especially Tina. My stay felt like I was a welcomed guest in a private home. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was large and efficient. I slept really well here. I liked the music that was played. Breakfast was okay. Everything from scrambled eggs, breads,...

One of my favorite hostels, and great value for money! The dorm rooms are super nice, as well as the common areas. There was a nice kitchen, outdoor terrace, movie room, and bar. Would recommend to anyone and everyone. Also, the amazing breakfast was a plus!

This hotel was recommended by the Telegraph and it looked like a good value for style and location. When I arrived at the hotel I was greeted by the staff with a glass of orange juice and given a tour of the hotel's grounds. It's great, spacious, trendy and very light. They even helped me book a few tours around...

My husband and I booked a room just for us, and we loved it. This is a really nice and clean hostel. Breakfast choice is large, they even prepare scrambled eggs if you ask for. Location is great, in the art district a bit away from tourist crowds and walking distance from everywhere in Porto. The staff was very helpful...

The Gallery hostel was not at all like a hostel and located in a fabulous old building which has been renovated to a high and chic standard. Each room of the residence had lots of personality. There is a new artist on display every 2 months which means lots of wonderful art to see, fitting as it is located in...

Stayed here with two friends in late March 2017 and we all agreed this is the best hostel we've stayed in, particularly for our age group of 26-30. We were in a 6 bed dorm, it was clean, good strong shower, fresh linen and towels - everything you expect from budget accommodation. Our roommate snored but that's always a risk...

This is a very beautiful hostel which also serves as a gallery to those not staying as guests. The hostel is family run, they are all very friendly. It was pretty cute how you could tell which ones were siblings because they all had braces. One of the brothers is pretty cute, it was a nice way to kick off...

I stayed for 3 nights at this hostel and was very impressed. The rooms are large, spacious, and clean.

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
