    1ère expérience en Auberge de Jeunesse j'ai surtout retenu les points positifs, Julian le propriétaire est très avenant, à l'écoute et privilégie la communication avec sa Team qui l'est tout autant, lits en dortoir très cosys, très confortables en plus de petits rideaux ont été ajoutés pour favoriser l'intimité de chacun, petit déj continental très bien garni et excellent, Auberge propre très bien située tant au niveau des lieux d'intérêt, que des transports, des commerces. Cuisine commune parfaitement équipée avec tout le matériel et autre éléments nécessaires pour chacun mangeant au sein de l'Auberge.Possibilité de prendre apéritif sur place et d'en profiter tranquillement dans le jardin, servi très généreusement et à des prix imbattables. Personnel et propriétaire inclus très à l'écoute de vos moindres besoin, toujours dispos, et comme écrit sur le tableau d'expression, je ne me suis pas sentie simple cliente mais quasiment en famille. Je remercie toute la Team soit Anne, Aurea etc mais surtout et en grande partie Julian d'une prévenance et autres qualités indiscutables sans occulter sa maman, Linda, une femme positivement adorable, altruiste et grâce auxquels j'ai retrouvé la signification des mots partage, famille et positivisme.Donc si j'ai un lieu à vous recommander pour découvrir Porto, sa situation, allez à l'Urban Garden Hostel pour son confort, sa chaleur humaine. J'en profite pour embrasser très fort Linda et Julian.

    다인실에 예민하지 않다면 굿 :)

    가격대비 훌륭합니다! 특히 직원 분들이 아주 친절하고 편안하게 해주셨어요. 청소상태나 화장실도 깨끗했습니다. 다만 8인실 12인실이어서 다른 여행객 때문에 시끄럽거나 불편한 점들은 있었어요.

  • 6.0.Good

    직원들이 정말 친절합니다! 조식이나 시설도 너무 좋았습니다. 다만 사진보다 침대도 생각보다 작고 화장실도 생각보다 작았습니다ㅠㅠ 그리고 나무 바닥이어서 그런지 움직일때마다 삐걱거림이 심해서 잠을 설쳤네요.
