We only were in Porto for 2 nights, so we decided saving a couple bucks at this place would help out the rest of our 2 1/2 week trip. Major Mistake. We were on the 4th floor (421, I believe) and had our own restroom....But just Barely. Apparently the other rooms on our floor did not and the public toilet was across the way from our door. So after 2am, when the 250 kids left the bar and street below our window, you could hear every bodily function of a whole floor full of people. We must've been in a dormer, because our tiny 'window' couldn't be seen from the street, nor could we open ours like the other 3 floors below us could. The staff was very nice and friendly especially the breakfast attendants....although "Full Breakfast Buffet" is a bit of a stretch. It was coffee, oj, and three different types of bread. I did like the weird little packet of soft cheese that came with it, though! To sum it up: Miserable sleeping, the a/c didn't even tease us once in awhile with a burst of cold air, noisey and hard to find from the metro station. Please go to Porto...it was fabulous, just don't stay here unless you're looking for an upscale hostel.
