I stayed at Poets Inn for 2 nights to see Porto. The staff were super friendly and helpful especially Rita who was just new. Rooms I stayed in were clean and beautifully decorated with lovely fresh linen. One bed was a bit too firm for Me but that could be fine for others. Central location within walking distance of all...

My husband and I spent 4 nights here this past August. Our room was on the 3rd floor so I imagine not everyone would be happy climbing those stairs. It was pretty quiet but with the windows always open you often get people unintentionally slamming doors because of the wind. The room we stayed in was very quaint and inviting....

Poets Inn was perfect for us! It's an upgraded hostel so it feels like a hotel with well-decorated rooms and breakfast included but with the cosy feel and amenities of a hostel (kitchen and dining area). It is super super clean! The staff are friendly, speak good English and are helpful. It's located close to the train station, many attractions...

staff is super friendly and forthcoming, we were 4 and were put in to an apartment nearby in the 3rd floor which was a few steps away, newly renovated and classy furnished. Great view over the roofs and the plaza. Location is central, may be a bit louder but hey, its a southern city and full of life.

Had a wonderful stay at the Poets Inn. The location was great, and the room and bathrooms are very clean. Breakfast was adequate. Only complaint was that sound traveled a lot in the building. We could hear doors opening and closing and people walking on the stairs both late at night and early in the morning. The seagulls were quite...

The Poets Inn hostel is a great place to stay at. Its location within Porto is fantastic, the rooms are cozy and stylish and the atmosphere is great. Since it is located on a hill you will be having a great view of the city. We had the opportunity to stay in both buildings. Our dorm in the main building...

Stayed there for only one night but it was time enough to feel like returning soon. The staff is very friendly, the room was impecably clean and very comfortable. It's also possible and easy to arrive at a later hour like we did, there's like a game with passwords and safes to get your key :) The breakfast was included...
