I loved my stay at the Rivoli so much that I extended it. The hostel is large and clean and comfortable. There is good security as you have your own key card that gets you into the front doors and your personal locker. The staff has something arranged every night so that it's very easy to meet other travelers. We... More

For sure a great place to go back to after a day of walking around the city of Porto. They have a great kitchen for cooking and a cool rooftop. Clean, safe... More

The Rivoli is one of the nicest hostels I've stayed in (and I've been in quite a few!) Situated wonderfully close to the majestic Avenue dos Aliados, you're no more than a 10/15 minute walk away from the Riverfront, the three main streets where all the bars are, or further into Porto via the Metro. The rooms were clean, bright... More

nice idea that the hostel is based on, certainly provides for good entertainment. The hostels also has a wide selection of games and movies that you can watch. The atmosphere was generally lively and surprisingly the hostel wasn't too loud at night. The staff were all helpful and very friendly. All common areas including the kitchen and bathroom were clean.... More

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.
