A very nice place in a very good location with the Friendliest staff ever. We unfortunately had a short stay there but it was a great experience. They offer a free walking tour, that was very interesting and knowledgable for the first day in Porto. Don't wanna describe anything more, cuz you have to go and try it by yourself..

We stayed here last month for my hen do, and could not have stayed anywhere better. Such a lovely hostel: clean, good food, lovely staff, plenty of space to socialise outside of the room. Would definitely stay here again, and recommend to others.

1. Location was good. It's quite far from the metro station, but I could walk all day long and didn't need public transport in oporto (except the first day I came from the airport). 2.

One of the finest hostels we've ever seen. Enthusiastic and helpful staff, great location, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Very clean. Great breakfast. Custom map is a real bonus. The free walking tour with Katarina was excellent.

- The staff here were amazing. So nice, friendly, helpful, insightful... They were awesome. I got the sense that they wanted to actually be friends with you and hang out and eat together, but they were still professional in how they went about it. Fred was the best! And the other guy that looked like Fred, can't remember his name....

The staff is absolutely wonderful and so helpful. I was in a triple room which was spacious and clean. I even opted for dinner at the hostel instead of at a local restaurant in Porto and I don't regret that decision! Dinner was prepared by staff and consisted of traditional portuguese cuisine with appetizers, lots of wine and dessert. Delicious!...

This well-located hostel is in the art-area of Porto. The house is so charming, very well decorated and I think it is more than a hotel (but the price like a hostel). It is one of the nicest hostels I've ever been and I can recommend it in every way!! Everything is withing walking distance! The staff is sooooo helpful...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Gallery Hostel is set in a privileged area of Oporto, known for its art galleries and modern shops, at a walking distance from the main points of interest in the city centre such as museums, monuments, gardens, restaurants and bars. Located in Rua Miguel Bombarda, the Hostel is established in an historical building with more than 100 years old, which just went through a renewal in order to respond to our guest’s needs and expectations. With high standards of comfort and carefully decorated, you will find a familiar and cosy atmosphere, complemented by a multilingual and professional team. Composed by several types of rooms, the Gallery Hostel is divided in two sections. You can choose between staying in the main building in a 6 or 4 people bedroom, or in one of our Garden Suites, always offering a privileged privacy. In the main building, each room is named after the most renowned artists of Oporto such as Sophia Mello Breyner, Almeida Garrett, Julio Resende, Silva Porto, Siza Vieira and Souto Moura. Also creating an original feeling of the city and enhancing local culture, the Garden Suites are named after the main Oporto city parks (Cordoaria, Botânico, Serralves and Palácio de Cristal). Our services and common areas have also been developed in order to satisfy any need the guest might have. You can choose listening to music and drink Portuguese wine in our Lounge Bar, watch a DVD in our Movie Theatre or play a game, surf on internet or read a book in our Library, have a chat or chill out in our interior gardens, enjoy a meal in our open kitchen and breakfast area, between others. ... more   less
