Other ratings did not match my experience - the hostel is not as perfect as the average rating suggests. Blankets were smelly (and very thick - not ideal in summertime Porto). 8-bed dorm was extremely smelly (probably as a result thereof). Mattress and pillow were OK. Old buildings - you literally hear everything that happens on the floors above and...

Maybe I've grown old and should look for hotels nowadays but still youd expect that youd get decent nigh sleep in a hostel. And this was impossible in Dixos. Here are the pros and cons as usually given: + Situated 200 meters from Douro river and close to the city center + Nice staff but nothing special + Really really...

Well located in the Porto District, this hostel has everything you want! From free under-bed lockers to very friendly staff, you'll want to come here again after you leave. My girlfriend and I came here for a quick weekend getaway, and will definitely be coming back in the future. We loved their rooftop terrace is great, and especially when they...

Cheap, clean and cosy. Absolutely tremendous quality-price (keep it this way!). With live msuic in the hall, if you're lucky to be with guests who play guitar. Yes, even guests are amazing! Eccentric typical breakfeast in the top of the building! Well, you could almost rest your coffe on the landscape... And a very talented lady in the kitchen, who...

Great location down from town toward the river. Many great restaurants nearby, as well as attractions. Much activity on the water and this is close to it all. Pleasant helpful hospitable staff. Highly recommend.

Perfect location, near to the Hard Club and 5mins of the Porto's center. The staff was very kind and welcoming. The prices are ok, It looks safe. The bathroom is clean, maybe the showers could have more space, but it was not a big problem.

“No real preference. There are many floors, so if you're lazy to climb - pick one lower. Then again - kitchen is upstairs, so you'll climb there in the morning anyway :)”
