A Review Of The House Of Sandeman Hostel And Suites

A Review Of The House Of Sandeman Hostel And Suites

I recently visited Porto, Portugal. Upon arrival, I wasn’t sure what to expect, except good wines and breathtaking views. While strolling through the district of wine caves, I stumbled upon the brand new The House of Sandeman Hostel and Suites. I asked my friend if I could go in to take a look. We walked up two flights of stairs and was impressed by the refined decor and friendly staff.

I instantly knew I had to stay here. I booked two nights on the spot for the following Monday and Tuesday. The total cost was 28 Euros, which included a two-night stay and breakfast each day.

Vacation Time

When it comes to heading out on your next vacation, you’ll often find that you follow a bit of a pattern. It may not even be something that you’re aware of. When you think about researching your next trip, you may look for the same kinds of hotels, similar areas, and even travel in the same country.
