Hostelworld says

Rivoli Cinema Hostel was rated among the top five small hostels worldwide at the 2010 and 2011 Hoscars, and it's not hard to see why. Hostelworld guests say 'the location couldn't be better, located in a safe part of downtown, between the metro and the train station, the historical centre and the shopping street, all at a walking distance'. We like the whimsical film decor, especially the Tim Burton rooms. This hostel has a large rooftop terrace with a swimming pool and BBQ and travellers tell us it's 'very easy to mingle and meet people with the pub crawl and free city tour'.

Property Description

We welcome all the backpackers, travellers and guests who search for the unique experience of staying at the first cinema hostel in Portugal, right in the centre of Porto.
We’re set in a 1930s Art Deco-style building, full of character itself. It was designed by the same designer as for the amazing Lello Bookshop (considered the third most beautiful in the world). Although it preserves the charm of most original elements, it was carefully renovated to provide you high standards comfortable accommodation with updated infrastructure.
The whole Hostel is Movie Themed and we’ve carefully decorated all the common areas and rooms, making you feel at home with your newest big family while staying in a room themed after your favourite movie or director.
Our common areas include a fully equipped kitchen, a dining area and a large lounge where you can relax, have a drink, read, play video games on our PlayStation and Wii or watch satellite TV or one of our 300 DVDs.
If you prefer to be outside, we have an outstanding 150m² terrace where you can sunbath, BBQ, listen to music, party or just socialise with the others guests, including a seasonal Bar and relaxing pool.
Our renovated facilities, 24hr availability, cinema theme and friendly multilingual staff create an especially cosy and comfortable atmosphere. We have free Wi-Fi, netflix, free internet, free maps and travel advice, free walking tours and free luggage storage on arrival and departure as well as free continental breakfast and all-day coffee and tea!

    My stay at Rivoli was very comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful with questions. The facilities are very clean, locker space is huge, and bedrooms are spacious. Breakfast has variety--cereal, bread, jam, fruits, coffee/tea, sometimes cake. A recommendation would be to clearly state that payment for hostel is in cash only--I missed this and I had to withdraw extra money. For laundry, you have to give them your laundry and they give it back to you end of the day and its €5.

    Wonderful stay. All of the sightseeing activities were easily within walking distance of the hostel, I had plenty of secure storage space in my room, the free breakfast was good, the bathrooms were clean, and the people/staff were amiable. I would use this hostel again!

    THE best hostel! They treat their guests as family, give a lot of tips about the local restaurants, bars, clubs, places to visit. Very friendly staff. They cook dinner for 6-8 euro and you can watch and learn how to prepare portuguese cuisine, then eat together and finish your evening by watching a netflix movie all together. You can take for free fruits, hot chocolate, tea, coffee, bread with butter all day long form the kitchen. Very clean bathrooms and bedrooms. Breakfast is very good!

    We had a great stay at Rivoli Cinema Hostel, definetly would stay again. Staff is very helpful and welcoming. The breakfast is exceptional for a hostel. There could only be more bathrooms, it was okay for us, but I can imagine they won't be enough if the hostel is fully booked.

    A great hostel, free breakfast, comfortable rooms with secure storage, clean bathrooms, a very good dinner at the hostel and each night. Good for chilling out (with a film) or going out. Just a few minutes walk from Sao Bento station. Will definitely return when I'm in Porto next.

Rivoli Cinema Hostel says

I think our hostel is perfect for guests travelling alone or in small groups of friends because, thanks to our huge indoor and outdoor common areas, it's really easy to make new friends here. It's also perfect for couples because of the romantic cinema-themed double rooms.
We're just next to the main city square, Aliados, and all the major historical attractions are less than five minutes' walk from here. I particularly recommend cisiting the Lello Bookshop, considered one of the top three most beautiful in the world and designed by the same architect as our building.
We've got tons of freebies, like our Wi-Fi, breakfast, walking tours, summertime swimming pool and much more.
