Good things: Very good price. Friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff. The breakfast was copious and fresh. I loved the atmosphere and the cosy places to sit and read. Very close to the centre, walk-able. Not so good things: The room was made very small by having the bathroom built in. The decoration and fixtures were very old and worn. For... More

Hosts were not at all friendly, most days did not even bother to greet me. The mattress in my room was the most uncomfortable I've ever tried to sleep on in my life. Bathroom smelled of sewege and had large mould spots on shower door. Not convenient to anything - long walk uphill from main attractions, no nice restaurants nearby... More

Good value for price - stayed there for 5 nights for a very affordable price. A step up from a true hostel, but not quite a full service hotel. Customer service was good - we arrived late, phoned ahead and the clerk stayed late to see us in. Cheap private rooms are in the basement, not the greatest sleep quality,... More

The place is very cozy, with tea areas inside and the breakfast (till 11am) is in a very nice terrace with coffee, bread, pastries, cereals, butter and jams and honey in a broad zone, till 11:30am. You can also use the kitchen which is a plus for anyone who fancies cooking! The reception staffs, especially Rachel, are very friendly and... More

Stayed here on a (well behaved) stag do in a dorm of 6 and we had another room of 5. The hosts are really laid back and accomodating and provide clean rooms/shower. A nice relaxing outside court yard was perfect for a warm up €1.50 Super Bock. Reception were great at organising cabs for us and telling us best areas... More

Porto Riad is a 'designer' hostel/hotel/B&B, with a Moroccan twist. It is situated just outside the city center, though fairly easy to reach by subway (get off at Trinidade station - then a 10 minute walk uphill). The hostel consists of a pre war house and a smallish garden. It is decorated with Moroccan furniture, carpets and nicknacks, giving it... More

This place is just perfect; rooms are clean and quiet, staff is very nice, breakfast is great (followed by the relaxing music)! The position of the hostel is very convenient. Hostel is also very well and furnished. So unique. And all that for a reasonable price. My husband and I were there for 4 days and we enjoyed staying in... More
