The Garden House Hostel is a new hostel in Oporto. Located in the heart of the old city, in the famous Rua de Santa Catarina, a pedestrian street where you can feel the Oporto essence, visit a wide range of restaurants, shops and cafes, as the well known "Cafe Majestic", an Art Nouveau icon where artists and intellectuals meet for a "cimbalino" (expresso). Also within walking distance are all the museums, Port wine cellars, the Douro River and the cool Oporto nightlife. After a day of walking and sightseeing, nothing feels better than returning to the beautiful 19th century house where the Garden House Hostel is installed.

From the Hostel you can catch the riverside tram to the sea and the beaches at "Foz". With its restaurants, bars and promenade, you can enjoy the sun in one of the iconic places of Oporto. In the summer don't forget to pack your sunscreen and beach towel!
