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. That’s $32 for all my friends in the States. I think this is by far the best deal I have encountered in the last three months of traveling. Here is the breakdown of the hostel and suites for those who are looking for accommodations while in Porto.

Just like that, summer is nearly upon us. I, for one, am very excited for the warm weather and summer festivities. I feel like I have been celebrating a bit early over here in Ibiza. If you haven’t already, check out all my travels on Instagram!

To me summer is a chance to wear super fun and cute looks that don’t require layering jackets over. From different parts of the world, I have combed through and refined new trends that will be emerging this season. One in particular is the summer dress paired with low-top, tennis shoes. It is equal part feminine and functional. I also love the idea of a summer bootie with a summer dress. Something a bit less expected thrown into a look.
