Group of 4 visited this hostel in 9th August 2014. Fantastic, clean hostel in downtown of Porto. Unfortunately we stayed only one night here due to our Road Trip of 2200km of exploring Portugal, but wished we could really stay longer. At reception desk we were welcomed by smiled young girl who gave a tour and showed us our room, showers, kitchen, lounge room. Not that we need It but she made an extra mile. Some will just give you the key and you are on your own with your bags. This hostel for sure have one of the best lounge room I have ever seen. You will feel rested, warmed and even entertainmed as they have Nintendo Wii game. Kitchen has all needed facilities, and morning breakfast will give you the needed fuel to start your day. Praise goes for young portuguese guy who was in morning shift at reception desk, with whom we have a nice chit-chat for more then an hour, where he told us the best local hidden places and what places we should avoid. Hostel is just few steps around the corner from buzzy Porto nigtlife. With room doors you may have to be careful as they can close pretty loud but you'll be warned. :o)))
