Great hostel. One of the nicest I've been to. Very clean and newly decorated. Our room was an 8 bed female dorm and we had our own en suite with 3 showers. Breakfast is included and is simple but good. Bread, cereal, meat, cheese. It is a bit outside the main 'touristy' part of the city but is a nice walk down to that area. Very close to a metro station (2 minute walk)

I had a great experience at So Cool. The staff is really friendly and helpful. It is very clean and modern. Very close to metro and night life. The breakfast that they serve is well worth waking up for. The garden is great for hanging out at night and just relaxing. It is about 10 to 15 min walk to city center depending on how fast you walk. The nice thing about being outside the center is if you want to sleep without all the noise you can. well worth the walk I would recommend to stay here

I had a great experience in porto thanks to the hostel So Cool.
You have everything you need and the staff will help you with all your questions. They are very friendly!
There is a nice kitchen and garden at the hostel were you can chill and relax with other travelers.
You can do your laundry, which was quite nice.
It's very close to a supermarket and the center of the city. You olso have a metrostation right around the corner so you can go anywhere by metro.
For me it was perfect for a relaxing holiday!
