Where to stay in Lisbon and Porto?

I am arriving in Lisbon in mid-Sept and the following day catching a train to Porto to start my first camino. Am wanting recommendations of places to stay in Lisbon and Porto. I am a solo female pilgrim and would prefer a private room mindful of my age and covid. Hotel Moxy is conveniently opp the Oriente train station and close to the airport but am wondering if anyone has other recommendations close to Santa Apolonia or other train stations on the Lisbon- Porto line. I would also appreciate any suggestions of places to stay in Porto with private rooms. Post camino I will spend some days exploring both cities before flying home. Really appreciate all suggestions. Thank you.

Hi Jo, I was in Lisbon and Porto in April. In Lisbon I stayed at the Largo Da Se guest house. Reasonably priced in a single room with shared bathroom ( there are rooms with a private bathroom) and only 100 metres from the Cathedral and about 1.5 ks from Santa Apolonia Station. The also let me store my luggage there while on the Camino.

In Porto I stated in the Albergue Des Peregrinos. Dormitory accommodation only so not what you are looking for, however there are plenty of hotels and guest houses. You will need to book as they are very busy at the moment I believe. Bom Caminho!

Camino Portugues 2022
I stayed in Porto a couple weeks ago on the way home after walking the Camino Portugues coastal. Just needed a place to stay for one night, and found the Jardins do Porto at 613 Rua do Almada. It is a newly converted property with a wonderful staff, a vegan restaurant (I am not vegan, but the food was excellent) and a garden in the back which very warm and welcoming.
It was a wonderful end to a really great couple weeks on the Camino.

Hi Jo. I stayed at the Being Porto hostel http://beingportohostel.com/en last fall - fantastic location in the old town and only steps to the start of the coastal route. They have both dormitory and private rooms to suit your preference.

Buen Camino
Thank you so much Charles. This hostel sounds and looks wonderful at a great price. Just has shared bathrooms, not so good in covid times but will enquire more.

Excellent and very affordable accommodation at the Casa de Vilar Seminario in Porto. Clean, quiet, secure. I have stayed several times and never an issue with lack of rooms. Has seen a recent upgrade so prices may have changed since 2016. A 15-20 min walk from the Musica Metro. View of the river is fabulous. They also have a pilgrim-specific dorm but I have no other information on that.

We stayed in a private room with our own bathroom (due to Covid) so I'm not sure what the other rooms had.

Hello travellers, I got myself a hamaka and thinking to sleep in the nature. Either in a camp or just in a forest. Anyone has any experience with it? Is it ok to sleep in a forest...
