Having seen the amazing reviews on TripAdvisor, it seemed too good to be true. Actually, I now understand. From the welcome (Joao met us at the airport), to the lovely rolls at breakfast, to the very high quality and excellent condition of all furniture and fittings, to the garden overlooking Porto...

Well done Joao and Marta for the standard that you have set and maintain. Keep it up!

I have been travelling for the last 2 years around the world and have stayed in many hostels. This was the best one - it is bright, fresh, quiet, good facilities, fantastic views from the roof terraces and super friendly hosts. A friend and I stayed 3 nights in the bunk rooms and in the double room. The best experience was having a picnic dinner on one of the 4 terraces, enjoying local port served by Joao and his father with a wonderful view over Porto at night. Joao was very helpful with directions to local restaurants and sights and was always there if you needed anything. Great place if you prefer a quiet hostel.

It`s already the second time I stay here in the Hostel and I really have to say that I love it. It`s such a beautiful,cosy and clean place. The hostel has three amazing roof terraces. where you have an amazing view all over the city. The owners are more than friendly and day by day you see that they put all their energy and love in this hostel.

There are a lot of different words you could describe this hostel with, but the one we prefer is 'AMAZING'. From arrival to leaving the hostel, we were astonished by how much love and kindness we received from Joao and Marta. They were there every single blink of an eye to make sure we got the best experience out of our stay. Rooms are lovely decorated and tidy, bathrooms looked like they were stolen from a 5 star hotel, and last but not least: the fantastic view from the terrace over the city of Porto. This is definitely the most beautiful hostel we visited in Portugal, and probably one of the cheapest too. We would recommend this hostel to everyone looking for a cosy experience.
