Good cardio walk to Porto!!! Convenient parking ne
Very clean and basic hostel. Pleasant stay and would recommend. 5 euro 24h parking very near. Only negative part is a 10 to 15min walk to Ponte Luis on a hillside.

Great hostel
Great hostel on a fairly busy street. Quite a bit of street noise. Very close to lots of things to do. Beds were kind of hard. I would stay here again.

5 star budget hotel !
The best budget hotel i ever stay. Location, service, cleaness, comfort, and the price. Just the bathroom is shared. Highly recommend if you visit Porto. Do not miss this hotel.

We have no complaints, the room was very clean and staff very helpful and friendly. We didn't realise when booking that this was owned and run by the Red Cross, so our money was going to a good cause. Would definitely recommend it.
