“the best hostel ever!”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

I spent three nights in the hostel and I can wholeheartedly recommend it to everybody! The localisation is great, close to the centre. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Also, the range of choices for breakfast is quite wide. It's clean and pretty :) If I'm ever back in Porto I will definitely stay there!

The hostel is in the heart of the city center, close to all atractions and metro stations.Very close also to Gaia and Ribeira, around 15 min walking.
The hostel is cleaning and cosy. Staff is amazing, helpful and friendly.
The kitchen is big and provides everything you need to cook yourself.
A lot of movies available at the reception.

So if you are intending to go to Porto, this is your hostel!

I had some great days in city Porto with a amazing sjourn time in the Rivoli Cinema Hostel. Nice flair, a full equipeped kittchen and friendly staff. Also there is a terrace.

The hostel is located in heart of Porto, you can go everything by foot and if you are to lazy, there is a Metrostation around the corner.

I stayed at the hostel in April for one night and I regretted this decision immediately.

I arrived around 21h00 after (only point of critique) the taxi driver could not find the right location, but (bonus point) did turn of the meter and ran up and down the street to find help me to the right location!

After arrival It felt like arriving in a good five star hotel. My suitcase was carried up the stairs to my room, I received a full personal tour through the hostel, there was personal attention and I was offered a free cocktail.

The room was very spacious (Quintin Tarrantino Room) and nice.

Unfortunately I pre-booked my train ticket to Lisbon, otherwise I would have definately stayed longer.

5 to 10 minute walk to Sao Bene Centrale Station. Rivoli Theatre right across the road. My only complaint with this hostel was the noise the key system makes. Any time you use your key to unlock or lock doors or lockers, a high pitched beep goes off. You can listen to this well into the night. It was annoying. Other than that the hostel is nice and clean and well run. Beds were comfortable, bathrooms were clean. Lockers are located in cupboards at the end of the beds. You don't need a lock, they lock and unlock with key provided. Rachel gave us some really helpful tips for pretty well everything. Terrace on the top floor is worth going up to take pictures from. Good common areas. You have to be buzzed in to get in the hostel. So pretty secure.
