Welcome to our hostel

Visitors to our hostel in Porto have said that one of the best things is its location. Right on the Douro river, the hostel provides you with some spectacular views, as well as easy access to the city centre.

Porto is a great destination for foodie groups. It is known for being one of the best locations in Portugal for quality and quantity. The best restaurants of the city are mainly located in Matosinhos near the beach and the seaport called "Porto de Leixões". Also try the "Francesinha" – a meat and cheese layered sandwich with a spicy sauce on top - which has been voted as one of the 10 best sandwiches in the World.

The home to port, there are dozens of caves willing to open their doors to groups for tours. Remember to ask at reception, as our hostel staff will be able to recommend the best excursions. There are often free tastings!

Porto is easy to get around on foot. There are free walking tours which highlight the main attractions and for football fans, then there are also tours of the Dragão Stadium, home of FC Porto. You can book a cruise which takes you up and down the Douro or you can try your hand at various arts and crafts workshops which take place throughout the city.

With a varied architectural heritage, Porto is the second largest city in Portugal and well worth a visit. Why not make an enquiry for your group at our modern hostel here today?
