Our Hostel

A traditional blue-tiled building that blends into the heart of Ribeira. 3,000 square meters. A basement with spectacular arches, the ground floor and twelve additional floors. These are the dimensions we hope to fill with Bluesock experiences.

At our hostel in Porto it is still possible to experience the spirit of the city’s typical housing buildings. We’ve maintained the stone, the wooden beams on the ceilings and the original architecture and structure of the building.

The Area

Bluesock Hostels Porto is located in Ribeira, the historical centre of Porto, on the banks of the Douro River and just steps from the city’s main attractions. From the hostel you can walk to Praça da Ribeira, Palácio da Bolsa, Alfandega Congress Centre and many other places you won’t want to miss. We are also surrounded by loads of restaurants, terraces, shops, cafés and wineries to lose yourself in.


The first thing that will surprise you about our Porto hostel is its spacious and modern lobby. There, you will find the reception, a chill out area and a small reading space. The modern decoration is the perfect preview of what awaits you in the rest of the building.

The Business Center is on a slightly lower level. It is the perfect place to enjoy our high-speed Wi-Fi from one of its comfortable armchairs.

But without a doubt, the ideal place to socialize is the Socks on the Rocks bar, located on the -1 floor and where the buffet breakfast is also served daily. This area is one of the most spectacular of the hostel, and is characterized by the beauty of its stone arches, hallmark of the historical buildings in this part of the city.

These architectural features are also preserved in many of our rooms, where you will find stone walls and original wooden beams of the building.

How to get there

Bluesock Hostels Porto is located at Rua de São João, 40, 10 minutes walk from São Bento station. And although the city can be explored on foot, we are just one step away from public transport and the main access roads to Porto.
