This sh*t's the real thing! Nov 04, 2014
Even for someone as picky as myself, I really can't fault this hostel one bit. It deserves all the accolades and awards its received. A short walk away from the train station, it's easy to miss. Probably because it's on the main street but the entrance is on the side and there isn't a bright banner with its name. Thank God for the website's instructions about having gone too far if we see the "red building"!
The hostel reminded me a great deal of the one I stayed in Brighton 5 years ago. It's extremely cosy, the staff are actually backpackers themselves (working here and hence staying free), and there's a lot of group activities. The night I went was some chicken night where curry was served for about a dozen who sign up in advance (and of course, pay for it).
Reception is extremely professional, got loads of information and this leads into the common room with a bar, lots of couches and computers for internet access. It's located about a mile from the historic centre which is good enough. They also have free walking tours every morning.
The kitchen is self service but they also offer free breakfast. The breakfast is basic - bread, jam and beverage but let's be honest, what more can one expect for such a cheap price?
The rooms are spacious, SO clean and very 'fresh'. I say that because most hostels smell of musty towels. But this one, really good.
Finally the bathrooms - whilst clean, the only annoyance was that it took forever for the hot water to turn on. And being winter, AND being Porto (which is relatively colder than the rest of Portugal), standing naked in the shower pod with the cool breeze coming in wasn't very nice at 8a in the morning!
But seriously, this hostel is brilliant. I'd heartily recommend it to anyone visiting Porto. Infact, it's a highlight!
