Looking for a good hostel in Porto we found the Rivoli Cinema hostel right in the middle of the old town of Porto. It is situated on a noisy street on the way to one of the most noisy streets in Porto, the Avenida aviados. In the hostel you don't hear the noises from the street so much but you... More

We have been there just for the weekend but we had such a great time. The hostel is well located, walking distance from/to most places. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and the living space cosy.

Stayed here with a couple of friends back in January. The location is certainly very good, close to the centre and metro. On one of the big streets so its pretty safe. When we arrived we were attended very well. The first thing we noticed is how cozy and relaxed the common room is. There are a couple of computers... More

The Rivoli Cinema Hostel was our first stop beginning a 2 week inter-rail trip around Portugal and definitely set us off on a great start. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and the hostel itself was not only easy to find on arrival into the city from the airport, but was also very comfortable and spacious. The rooms themselves... More

The hostel is really budget friendly! The staff is very helpful and nice. The rooms and shared spaces are clean. Also, the hostel is the center of Porto. I would recommend it to everyone. Almost every night there are events going on.

I was on an exchange trip with students from all over the world, although us Irish students stayed in this hostel. I was staying with two friends so upon arrival we asked if we could pay for the two rooms, but move a bed into the other rooms so we could all converse at night. It was no problem for... More

Great hostel we really enjoyed our time there! Every evening they have some activities so we ate francesinhas, made pizza and drink wine together. Kind Stuff and clean rooms and kitchen. Also they offer free walking tours every day and a great pubcrawl. Thank Renata and all you guys for the awsome time with you!
