Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 April 2015

I have stayed in the hostel continuously every week-end for 5 months, and there's always been good vibes in there. People who works there beheave with customers as with friends and they'll show you the best part of the city during your staying. The place is nice, in a super centric neighbourhood just next to all the spots to visit. It has been on the top 10 must visit hostel in 2014. Go there!

Room Tip: Ask for Tiago and Tomè ;)

It doesn't get any better than this. Rivoli hostel sits comfortably in the middle of Porto, near everything, a big living room, great rooms with big Windows or balconies, great toilets an awesome kitchen a terrace with an amazing view but besides all that is like being in a house with a big family. All together having breakfast watching a movie drinking a beer and making a barbecue in the terrace, going on a tour meeting the city. People there really are the nicest, its true. One day, one night here doesn't matter. It seems a lifetime or not time at all. Thank u so much.

One of the best hostels I stayed at during a 2 month trip around Europe. I'll stay there again when I return to Porto. I had a private room with a very comfy bed. The hostel is super clean, well maintained, modern, has an great kitchen with everything you need. The staff are super nice, social, and friendly. Great job Katia and Nuno. You guys rock! Very comfy sofas to relax on. Huge library of movies on DVD for that evening when you just want to chill and have a beer while watching a movie. They prepared dinner every night for a reasonable price which was a great way to socialize. Bathrooms were very clean as well.

I was really surprised in a good way for this place. Very easy to get there from the metro station, very well located. Everyone of the staff people was very friendly and helpful all the time. The decoration is like being at home, so cozy and creative. Rooms are ok, clean and safe. Bathrooms a little small but always clean and working perfectly. This is a GREAT place to stay.
