Porto Spot Hostel Reviews

Porto Spot Hostel offers a great stay. It is recommended for solo or small groups.

The Location

This hostel is in a great location and very easily found within the city from the main bus and train stations. The transport system in Porto is well set up and can be great for getting to and from places around the city. There are bus and metro stops close by to the hostel.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms are located on the upper floors of the hostel. They are reached by stairs and can be entered only with a key card. Each level has dorm rooms plus male and female bathrooms. Within the dorm room, there are four solid bunk beds all with clean and fresh linen (pillow also). Each guest has a personal light and power point. There is one locker assigned per guest; these lockers have built-in locks and your key is given to you upon arrival. The locker is decent in size (it can fit a seventy-liter backpack) and is quiet to use. The bedrooms are light and fresh with windows on two sides. The room also has air conditioning, which helps to maintain the comfort of the space.

The bathrooms are located outside the dorm rooms but only across the hall. The female bathroom has three showers and two toilets. There are sufficient paper towels and toilet paper always. The showers are warm and have great pressure. There is no space within the shower cubicle to change, however there is plenty of room outside the cubicle in the main bathroom area. There are limited hooks for the showers.

Common Spaces

There are both indoor and outdoor common spaces at this hostel for guests to chat with others and meet new people. There are plenty of bench tables and seats outside for a beautiful morning breakfast (tables also have umbrellas), surrounded by shading vegetation. The indoor common area has a bar (drinks are always available and are reasonably priced), couches, PC for guests to use, and printing facilities if needed. There is a TV and entertainment system in this common area also.

There is a dining room with tables and chairs and lots of room to move, which joins with the communal kitchen. The kitchen has sufficient bench space and enough utensils for visitors to cook for themselves if they wish. There is a fridge and freezer for food storage as well as a coffee machine (free at breakfast but you must pay small fee to use after 11a.m.). The kitchen is clean and tidy and has recycling bins.


This hostel is great value for money. There is Wi-Fi throughout and a decent breakfast included each day. It is comfortable and clean and allows guests to get a nice rest in Porto. The staff are very happy and friendly people who are always willing to give advice or answer any questions that guests may have. The reception is open at all times, which makes the hostel feel more safe and flexible. There is also the option for guests to store their luggage at the hostel for free once checked out or before checking in if desired.
