If you are ever going to a concert in the Casa da Música in Porto this is the ideal hostel for you. Even if you just want to remove yourself slightly from the noise and busyness of the more touristy areas of the city this is a great location. If you are coming from the airport it is on a direct line so no need to change and being right beside the Casa da Música metro station it avoids the need to drag your case around behind you.
I stayed there for one night in 2019 year and paid €13 for a bunk in a 10 bed mixed dorm. This included breakfast.
The bunks have roller blinds to pull down for privacy, a light, and an electric socket for charging your phone. There are also good sized lockers under the bunks.
The shared bathroom
The bathroom was clean and spacious. Some mould on the upper wall but that’s very common in these old houses.
Lovely comfortable lounge with TV. Free Wifi in public areas. Reception was busy when I arrived but I was happy to sit in the lounge and wait. Staff were friendly and efficient. The hostel is in a lovely restored building and you can see in one of the photos that they have managed to maintain the coved ceilings. There is also a lovely staircase.
The kitchen and breakfast
The communal kitchen was in the basement and this was were the breakfast was served. It was a good breakfast, juice, cereal, bread, ham, cheese, coffee/tea pretty standard for Portugal.
I was only there for one night and left very early the next morning so I can’t say much about the social aspect of it but with no bar and no evening meal I imagine it would be fairly quiet. There are a couple of vending machines for drinks and snacks. I would certainly stay again if I was in that area of Porto.
A word of caution
Lots of stairs so not great if you have mobility issues.
