Great location, great host, would stay again.
Perfect location to enjoy porto and learn about the history of the old town and it's port wine production. The hostel is in a traditional street that leads down to the water with great views. Portuguese owned with modern hostel facilities in a beautiful old building, very clean and very welcoming. I wouldn't stay anywhere else!
