We stayed 3 nights and it was a great stay! It is right in the center of Porto. The employees were very friendly and helpful to find the best spots in town. The room was clean, they have electronic key with lookers for each of us. The rooms were very quiet. They had a great terrace at building's top floor... More

The rooms were very small and internet only work in the common area. And it had only two shower per floor. Worked alright when I was there though. Staff is very friendly, everything was clean and definitely... More

The location is absolutely fantastic - right in the centre of Porto. The private rooms were fine, and there were never any queues for the shared bathrooms as far as I could tell. Breakfast was basic, but fine for the amount that you pay for it. Altogether great value.

We had a GREAT stay here! 4 of us stayed in a private room, but we had great fun cooking in the kitchen in the evening and chatting with the other guests then and at breakfast at the lovely long, bright breakfast table. I loved the conversation I had with one of the hosts of the hostel about what route... More

We had 3 comfortable nights in the Rivoli Cinema Hostel in march. The interior of the building (the hostel is spread over 4 floors in one own building) is really unique and cool, you find the cinema theme back everywhere. The staff was open and welcoming, showed us around and made us feel at home really easily. It was located... More

A warm welcome early in the morning, a very nice hostel and leaving room, an awesome kitchen, breathtaking rooftop ... This is the place where you want to stay in Porto ! The staff gave us really good advice for lunch & diner and there is a good atmosphere in this house (even if there is no lift ;-)

It's the best hotel's concept that i've ever been. It's like a share flat of students, but very big and confortable. You can play guitar, or console, or watch movies... The breakfast is good. The staff is young. It's very close to the center of the city.

Very nice hostel with a strategic position in order to visit Porto, near the train station, the underground and the bus terminal. Great idea to decorate every room with a different theme based on a famous movie: the rooms are simple but comfortable, there're heaters and WiFi. The common spaces are amazing, the living room as big couches and tv... More
