What are rental costs like?

Getting a room can cost between 200€-300€ a month.
Renting a small studio apartment can cost between 300€-400€ a month.

We’re working on developing partnerships with local renting providers to offer you the best deal possible.

How do I get there?

Porto has great infrastructures and you get here pretty much by any mean of transportation. But although we’re close to the sea, getting a flight here is probably more comfortable than a boat.

The Francisco Sá Carneiro airport is 11km away from city center and you can get a connection through taxi or Metro.

From the US

If you live in the US or outside Europe, you might have to take a connection flight from Frankfurt or Lisbon.

From Europe

If you’re coming from Europe, there is a direct connection from pretty much every major airport.

In Portugal

If you land in Lisbon, do take a little time to meet the place! When you’re done grab the Alfa train up north for about 30€ from Gare do Oriente.
