#295 of 775 Speciality lodging in Porto
After a day of walking and sightseeing, nothing feels better than returning to the beautiful 19th century house that is Alma Porto Hostel. The building is an old jewelery factory and has been fully restored and improved, with all the modern commodities but still keeps inside the classic Porto style as well the famous tile painels, with a wonderful garden where you can relax, have a glass of wine, read a book and feel at home in a cozy, warm and familiar atmosphere!

Very friendly and welcoming staff but sadly the place is extremely dirty and run down. The toilet facilities are not sufficient for the amount of guests hosted. There was mould and a strong smell in the building. With some care and cleaning this place could be amazing. Best bit of the stay was the piano music in the evening. Not sure who played but it was stunning.

+ Friendly staff + Building with potential + Location is quite ok (10 min walk from some restaurants, 5 to the metrostation). - The state of the house is truly terrible and dirty! For example I didn't want to take a shower at all because the showers looked horrible (quite a bit of mold, showers falling apart, dirty socks and things lying around everywhere, spiderwebs in the bathroom, mud etc). I've travelled quite a bit around Asia and South America as a low budget backpacker, to me cheap hostels can be really cozy but I would definetly not recommend this hostel in the state that it is in right now. - Far to few bathrooms (especially for the third floor). - I was excited about the bathtub (as written on booking.com) I think I found it standing in the back of the garden full of leaves? :)

Nice place. Cheap and easy to access. Personal is super nice . loved you all... I will be back for sure every time I'm back in porto ....The breakfast was complete and everything was well presented and had some variety from you could choose your preferred breakfast food.. Good cleaning in all the places.. bathroom, room and living room. I absolutely loved the inside garden, to rest, hang out and meet other fellow hostages.. Overall nice place. Keep up the good work. .

First, the place is very old and poorly maintened. It seems also that all the homeless from the neighborhood come in this hostel to overnight there. There were some very strange people while i was there ! !! I also had to deal with a girl from the volunteers who work there who talked to me very badly because i switch bed without permission.. So my only advise is to go somewhere else, you have a lot of much better options not far away !!!
