You must come to this hostel when you visit Porto
I really love this hostel and I'm treated as a family member. The tour recommendation is great and makes me know this city more. I also went to the "hostel recommend" restaurants and the food is delicious

Great hostel in Gaia area for Port tasting
Location of hostel is fantastic. Within 10 minutes walk to riverfront and several Port wineries. Gustavo Joao Marta, aka Joao, was the consummate host. He gave us some great tips on off-the-beaten-path things (e.g. Where to get a good authentic Franchesinha). His welcoming white port with an orange cake was a great welcoming touch. And at our breakfast every morning we had a chance to sample a different cake (no port though, ha ha). One suggestion for Joao would be to include hard boiled eggs as a breakfast choice. Everything else was up to par. The most challenging thing about the hostel is the stairs. Joao did everything in his power to take care of this. Didn't have to lug up our several pieces of luggage. My 86 year old mother-in-law also managed the twelve steps to her private room with a shared bathroom for several nights. Our private room was another couple of dozen steps up on the second floor with a private bath. Helped us work off all that rich Portuguese food and Port. Hospitality and morning visits with the guests were delightful. This will be one place We would come back to.

Magnificent Stay!
João was a phenomenal host. He was so welcoming and friendly. This was a perfect place to stay as a solo traveller looking for friends and a clean safe place to stay. A true example of how a hostel should be run.
