Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Dear guest Thank you for taking the time to review our property and for your suggestions.If you had asked us we would have recommended a car park just a few steps from the hostel. On the street, as we are in the historic centre it is very difficult to park.

I stayed at this hostel for 4 nights on a solo trip to Porto, Portugal. This hostel is located very central in Porto and easily accessible by foot from Trindade or Aliados Metro stations. The hostel is fresh, modern, and somewhat new. The staff and front desk are welcoming, friendly, and accommodating. The hostel has private rooms with shared bathrooms. I opted to stay at a dorm like room with bunk beds. I was able to request my preferred bed and I was lucky to be assigned my preferred bed. The room I stayed in was located on the 3rd floor Room 1. It had 2 showers, 2 toilets, and 2 sinks. It even had a hair dryer and 2 hand towels to use. The lighting was adequate and ventilation was good since it had exhaust fans that switched on when someone was using the bathroom. The rooms were of good size and had a nice sized bed and lockers that fit a carry on size luggage. The room had wide doors that open to the balcony which offered fresh air. The room also has a wall mounted split type air conditioner. Each bed had an electrical outlet, a small ledge to place some items, and a reading light. Each set of bunk beds has a foldable chair which I found useful when organizing items on my backpack. Daily housekeeping was provided and the room was "organized" each day. I preferred my things not to be touched or moved but I did not have any choice. I learned to just lock everything up in my locker to avoid any items being moved. The breakfast was adequate and the kitchen area was of good size to accommodate travelers. It had a cooking area, fridge, utensils, cookware, and microwave. The hostel is not similar to other "party" hostels. This is a quiet hostel which I preferred. Pros: - Friendly staff - Location - Price - Overall cleanliness - Spacious - Generally quiet compared to other hostels - No party scene - Good for introverts Cons: - It took 3-5 minutes for the hot water to run - Housekeeping would move items to organize the room If you found this review helpful, click on the helpful icon to help other travelers.

Many pluses: Reasonably priced Close to metro Clean Best of all, the lady at the front desk who so kindly pointed out on the map all points of interest BUT the big minus was NOISE. My room was the one right across from the reception desk. It faced the street at street level and had no sound insulation whatsoever. This meant that you could hear everything as if the windows were wide open even though they were shut. So anyone passing by having a conversation or some drunk idiots serenading the block at 4AM might as well have been at the foot of your bed because that’s how it sounded. Ear plugs made no difference.

BEDBUGS!!! Complete infestation. Do not stay here. I managed one night and then was awoken by another girl in my dorm room who was upset. Looked at her mattress and it was COMPLETELY covered in bedbugs, I've stayed in a lot of hostels around the world and I’ve never seen anything like it. They were everywhere. I've just spent a full day of my holiday in the laundrette in Porto getting all of my clothes washed and dried. Found at least 4 of them on my clothes and a further 6 in my bed. There were at least 15 on this poor girl’s mattress. Left the hostel at 2am to move to another hostel and when I complained about the infestation, they said they already knew about it as a girl had already left due to it. Why they let any new guests stay is beyond me. I wasn't offered a refund, instead they just moved me to a new hostel. I emailed to complain and get a refund which is the absolute least I would expect and received such a snarky, passive aggressive response claiming that I may have brought them in. Insulting considering I came straight from my home to the hostel, and my home absolutely does not have bed bugs, not even considering the sheer scale of the infestation is impossible for me to create in 1 day. There are plenty of nicer hostels in Porto that aren't completely infested and who don't accuse you when you try to complain.

Response from portoloungehostel, Manager at Porto Lounge Hostel & Guesthouse
Responded 24 Jul 2019
Dear guest That's true that on that night you and the other girl found some bugs ( 1 in your bed and 2 on the other girl's bed as the receptionist checked when you called him) and we have already apologized for that, however that's not true that' they were everywhere as they were not seen and the other guests didn't complain. You have to understand that we are not to blame for that. As everyone knows this is something that can happen anywhere because bugs are brought by the guests themselves ,although we have to immediately take measures and that was exactly what we did.When we were aware of the situation the receptionist immediately took you and the other girl to another hostel and paid for that. The following day a desinfestation service was called to inspect, the guests were all sent to another place, the room was locked and desinfested. Everything is in order again.

Had a 3 night stay here & couldn’t of been happier. The hostel was always kept clean & tidy. The staff were exceptional & always keen to answer any questions that we may have had. The room was great as were the showers & bathroom. The added bonus was the breakfast supplied & this was great. I would definately stay here again.

My stay at the Porto Lounge was disappointing at best. On arrival, I was charged an extra 10% tourist tax. This was not reflected in the booking or the bill. I had booked a private room in order to get a good nights rest, but quickly discovered that the wall between the room next to me was paper thin - I heard everything going on next door from throat clearing, a sqeaking headboard, to a lengthy late night quarrel. The following day the receptionist did not enquire about my stay, even after I asked how they preferred to receive feedvack. In short, I could not recommend this facility and would suggest anyone considering a stay there be aware.

The staff it is very friendly and helpful. The location it is very good. You will find everything around. You can explore Porto by walk, or in 2 minutes you will find a bus stop or metro to drive you till Foz, as an example. Comfortable, clean. Very good experience.

We booked three nights at the Porto Lounge Hostel due to the proximity to the city center. The hostel is located in a great spot to explore Porto by foot. Everything can be reached in max. 15 min by foot. The metro to the airport is in 5 min walking distance which makes it easy accessible coming from the airport. The house is cute and the rooms are well sized. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and the beds comfy. The breakfast is rather basic but it offers everything necessary. We enjoyed ourselves at the hostel and would definitely recommend to stay there.
