Clean, comfortable and fresh-looking place with most helpful and friendly staff. Very good location. Nice spacious room with little balcony where you can sit and have a glass of port. Cosy room for breakfast.

Simple but hospitable guesthouse in Rua de Santa Catarina. Easy walking distance from Bolhao metro station. Although Sta Catarina is a shopping street, the guesthouse is in a quieter area.

This not the place you want to stay in Porto. It was hard to spot a place in the apartment that was clean. The bed linen was smelly, the apartment including windows very untidy. Water from the sink was not getting away. THE BEDS ARE A NIGHTMARE!!!

Stayed here for 1 night. The room was small, but fine. The staff was friendly and helpfull. The accommodation is located near by the metro and not far from the river with all the bars and restaurants.

We stayed at this hostel for 3 nights in the private twin room with ensuite. It's in an ok location: about 20 min walk to riverside. Very close to metro and on a nice shopping street. However, this street gets quiet at night, and there isn't someone always at the front desk of the hostel, so we did feel a... More
