    Superb

    Very good hestel, beautifull common terrace, clean. I had a great time. The "free walking with the locals" tour was funny and it was a good way to meet people from other hostels.

    Dinner and pubs tour are expansive.

    Great value for money, excelent location and friendly staff. If you are planning a city break in Oporto it's a place to take into account.

    The staff was very nice and helpful, I liked that the beds have curtains, so if you want you can have extra privacy in the room.. We really enjoyed the terrace it's nice to hang and meet people.. the location is good, 1min or less from the metro..

    The location was incredible (in close proximity of Sao Bento train Station) and made viewing different parts of the city very easy and accessible. The staff were very willing to help and one felt that if anything was needed they were able to help you get it or discover where to find it.

    There were a few things I didn't like but perhaps I'm comparing this hostel to other phenomenal ones I have stayed at. Individual lockers were provided yet one has to have their own lock (if not you can buy one for 5 euros!). They also charge you 5 euros for a towel (they do give 2 euros back when you return the towel). These little things add up and seem just other ways to make extra money (with other means they created too) and not necessarily ways to accommodate their guests. I personally don't like ensuite bathrooms (when staying in a dorm) because I felt I was disturbing people who were sleeping when I showered early in the morning. The lighting in the rooms and the hostel were also dim and didn't make the energy of the hostel any warmer.

    1. Good location - convenient for everything 2. Easy to find - close to Sao Bento Metro & main line station (walk up the street on the right hand side of the station, turn left at the top and the hostel is on the right before the road forks - 5 mins) 3. New hostel with excellent bunks with lights, curtains and fans 4. Great terrace and views from dorms at front 5. Enthusiastic and helpful staff (who speak english)

    1. The kitchen is maybe a little small for a hostel that can accommodate in excess of 100 guests 2

    The hostel is in a great locations near the Cathedral, the staff are very friendly and didn't mind us rolling in at all hours in all sorts of shapes, the rooms excellent and the 5 Euro all you can eat lunch is tremendous value for money - one day I can clams with pork, a beer and an espresso! Would definitely stay here again.

    If you're going to Porto then definitely this is the place to stay. Excellent location, just 1 minute from both the São Bento subway and train stations and a 7 minute walk to river Douro. The building was entirely renovated and the design is awesome. It's a beautiful 5 star hostel for just 15 euros per night. It's fully equipped with a kitchen that you can use at your own pleasure but if you're not into cooking they serve meals for 5 euros. There's a free buffet breakfast every morning so be sure to eat before you leave and visit the city. The rooms are very clean and lot's of space for your luggage. The beds are equipped with curtains to grant you total privacy, a fan, reading light and sockets to plug in or charge your devices. Free wi-fi and computers are also available and work great. The staff is very nice and very helpful, they even tour you through the entire hostel. Really loved it and for sure I will be back.

    Interesting interior design, friendly personal. Good wifi coverage.

    No table, no chairs in the room. For quite tall people it's impossible to sit on lower bed. 3 euro for just using their towel ! (plus 2 eur deposit).

    Nice location near the bus stop and Sao bento station, friendly staff, perfect rooms for individual curtain, light and fan. very new and gorgeous design

    For a little bit rough way to the hostel. when I walked at night, I was scarred. But not so far from the main road. I really enjoyed this hostel!!!!

    Privacy, for you have curtsins at our beds Very very compti beds A kitchen, open 24 hours to cook, oven and microwave includet, also a free food sector. When people check out, they can leave it there for the others. Extremley nice idea! The bathrooms in the rooms look like from a 4 star hotel , in beautiful colours : ) The staff is verynice, everyone in it's own way. Even the ones that suffered the nightshift always had a smile for us. There is an elevator, a beautiful roof terrace, a big fishtank, i had a balcony in my dorm room and a hairdrier is given too. It was freaking awesome there, best hostel in porto, thats for sure. The breakfast was nice too, everything you need, if you want some fruit you have to bring your own then ( you can do that at the cute little indian shop right next to the hotel)

    The staff were awesomely friendly. My friend and I were late fro the walking tour, but the staff went all out to help us catch up with the tour guide. Hostel is very clean and well designed. Definitely would go back there to stay if I get the chance.

    Good location and good value for money.

    Too many families with children that are hard to stand during the breakfast. Also, lacks athmosphere and the design is a bit depressing. The area of the hostelis a bit run down.
