Interaction with Guests

If you're looking for a place where you can have full-privacy within a peaceful and friendly environment, this is it. You can get plenty of great ideas by asking the resident (me) about typical restaurants and coolest scene bars.

If you're on a budget, home cooked traditional meals can be arranged upon request. You'll be surprised with our creative cuisine! Alternatively, you can just opt for a self-catering experience.

The Neighborhood

+ Peaceful neighborhood right next to the busy city center; plenty of grocery shops, restaurants and trendy bars just around the corner.

Located in a really peaceful neighborhood (next to Porto's Fine Arts College), just 2 blocks away from the liveliest central streets. The house has a great artistic vibe and doubles as a mini-gallery. The residents are mostly travelers and people connected to the city's cultural scene.

  • It was more than we were expecting. The neighbourhood is nice, and the metro station is really close to the building, there are also supermarkets close by. Andre was a very nice and helpful host. We definitely enjoyed our time there, and will come back. Andre is a really polite, open and easy going guy. Thanks for hosting us.

  • We stayed at André's for nearly two weeks, and it really became a home away from home. The location is very good, with the metro just around the corner, the large shopping street of Rua Fernades Tomasa a 10 minute walk away, and plenty of cool little coffee shops littered around (also a great little organic food shop about 5 mins walk away). The apartment is pretty arty/cool, as indeed is André himself. We were made to feel very at home, and were genuinely sad to leave. We had the middle room which was basic but more than enough room to serve as our home for 2 weeks. We were attacked by mosquito for the first couple of nights but a mozzy killer (6 euros from the local Pingo Doce) soon restored the ballance of power back in our favour! :) Kitchen and bathroom are well equiped and generally clean and we had no problem cooking proper meals every day. If we are back in Porto in the future, André, and his cool pad, with be the first place on our check list.

  • The flat is well situated. The bed is really old and not so comfortable. It seems that only one room has a private bathroom. The other one share the same bathroom which is not so clean. The rooms are very close together so if all the 3 are busy at the same time, it can be really noisy.
    On the communication side it's complicated to have answer from André.

  • André and Sara were very nice hosts and interesting people. they made us feel comfortable and relaxed in their place. they both were very helpful with information about the city as well. I warmly recommend them and hopefully will come back in the future.

  • I couldn't have (email hidden) to stay ! It was my first time in Portugual, and it was great to start the experience by meeting Andre and his friends, who took us to lots of fun places (restaurant with delicious Picanha, night exhibition, wine bar, ...).
    The apartment is super close from the metro, but we didn't use it much actually, because almost everything is within walking distance.
    Muito obrigado ! :)

  • Modern and comfortable appartement, few minutes walk from historical center. Andre rents out most of his rooms so expect to meet new friends from all over the world. Appartment is spacey with all conviniences you need.
    Andre can provide good advice on hanging out in Porto and obviously a nice person, but sometime he can get lost in his arty world and be somewhat hard to reach.
    Would definetely stay again at Andre's!

  • Nice Art Corner in the middle of Potro))
    Amaaazing balcony (or as u europeans say - terrace) - perfect place for night talks and morning cofee.
    It's a pity we had no chances to talk enough with Andre but we had all the chances to meet his friends one by one from day to day.)))
    Thanks a lot for autentic and nice stay, Andre!

  • I got to know André as an easygoing, friendly and very busy artist! ;) The place is comfortable, has its own vibe and is located close the metro station 24 Campo Agosto (direct connection to the airport). While I stayed in Porto, there were also other travelers from France and Turkey.

    André organized a dinner party on my last night for all his guests in the living room of the apt. If I come back to Porto, I will be back for sure! :)

  • Si se busca un lugar sucio, este es el lugar.
    Llegue y estuve 30 minutos en la puerta esperando que alguien llegara a abrirme, aunque habia avisado mi horario de arribo.
    La cocina era un desastre, platos sucios, comida podrida en la heladera, agua chorreando, un freezer que no habria por el hielo en la puerta.
    El banio: ropa interior sucia tirada al lado de la baniera, tapa del hinodoro rota.
    Mi cuarto: nunca me dieron una llave del mismo, mesita de luz con lampara sin foquito, ni una silla para apoyar mis cosas.
    La toalla me la dieron al otro dia.
    Nunca me dieron el desayuno de cortesia.

About
Hello, I'm working in areas such as visual arts and performance art. I develop my artwork mainly in a shared studio located in the historical center. I'm interested on a grand range of creative areas and them relation with the community. So recently I'm working in a non-profit association focused on issues as art, democracy, community, citizenship and participation.
