"Great place to stay. Very hotel like rather than hostel - it's only when you go to sleep in the dormitory that you remember you're in a hostel! Very clean - cleaners seem to be around cleaning 24/7…"

Liked: Great place to stay. Very hotel like rather than hostel - it's only when you go to sleep in the dormitory that you remember you're in a hostel! Very clean - cleaners seem to be around cleaning 24/7 ... can feel like you're in their way sometimes. The rest of the staff were helpful and friendly - breakfast good - cereal and toast. Good atmosphere.Great value for money

Liked: Everything, the set-up of the hostel encourages meeting a group. The rooms are great and have excellent showering facilities. You didn't feel cramped, even in a big room with high ceilings and really comfy beds. Above all the guys that worked there Jose and Tiago were unbelievable,; cooking, moving bags and taking us out. I live this place and would definitely go back

Disliked: NOTHING, the price was good for what you got

Liked: This is probably the best hostel I've ever stayed at - and one of the best value for money. Good sturdy comfortable bunk beds, big airy room with two windows, you can sit up on the bottom bunk without smacking your head. Lockable drawers for each guest which all of my stuff fit into (I'm travelling for two months) easily. It's a beautiful old building that's been refit perfectly. Plenty of showers and toilets, never had to line up - the showers on the first level were amazing. Decent breakfast that is served from 8am - 11am (I think) so you can still make it even if you hit the pub crawl the night before! The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The common area is comfortable and has good atmosphere, I met quite a few people at this hostel. The kitchen has great facilities and many people cook their own food. There is also a bar in the hostel with cheap drinks. Good location, easy to find, about a 10 minute walk from the central train station. You should definitely stay here!

Disliked: There could be more power outets in the rooms, the one near my bed worked sporadically. My room overlooked the rear courtyard and as there is no air-conditioner (I have no problem with this, it's not needed here as isn't that hot) and no ventilation you need to have the windows open to let air into the room - again this is fine. The problem was the noise coming from other guests in the courtyard was very loud and made it incredibly difficult to sleep on three different nights in a week. And I'm talking 4am, so I don't think it's unreasonable to think you should be able to get some sleep at this hour. I did provide the feedback to reception at the time so this is not a whinge, but unfortunately it kept happening - perhaps a 'quiet time' policy after 1am in the courtyard would be good. Or just request a room that doesn't overlook it. Or just go out every night.

Liked: super-friendly staff, couldn't be better ... maybe it's just the Portuguese hospitaliity :), but still, it made the stay very enjoyable. They tried to get people involved in social activities, and even ordered us a pizza when we were hungry. The chillout room/bar with a patio was nice, and was open for cheap beers until 1am

Disliked: it was a bit far from town

Liked: Porto Spot Hostel is a very cosy hostel, also suitable for a whole school class ! A very friendly and helpful staff, a big kitchen (we were having dinner with a group of 25 pupils there), a cosy living-room and outdoor area. Groceries could be bought very cheaply within walking distance (incredible: we could cook for the pupils for just 0,70 € per meal!).
