Property Description

The Central House Porto Ribeira is a brand new hostel located close to several well-known attractions, 400 metres from D. Luis I Bridge, 500 metres from Clerigos Tower and 500 metres from Douro River.

Rooms and Dorms
We offer rooms adapted to you and your way of traveling: private rooms for families or couples and spacious fully equipped shared dorms (female and mixed) if you travel alone or in a group. If you are one of those who needs a lot of room to sleep, we have Premium dorms with larger mattresses than usual for your perfect comfort. Dorms featuring space to store your belongings with a drawer unit under the bed.
*** Please note that if you book more than one bed in a same dorm category, it is not guarantee that they will be in the same room, although we'll do our best to make it happen :) ***

The bar and restaurant Citynizer Plaza are located on the ground floor, with a wide culinary offer, long hours, and a diverse cultural and leisure agenda, making it one more option to go to throughout your stay. Different activities and events are programmed every day for you. In addition, a continental breakfast is served each morning.
The hostel provides free Wi-Fi access and 24-hour reception. There is a luggage room if you need to leave the hostel later in the day.

The facilities in this hostel were great but if you are a young solo traveler looking to make friends this place is NOT IT! Had no socializing or organized activities and felt like a hotel with dorms instead of rooms. Also found a much older crowd than I expected. Not ideal for a 20’s female solo traveler.

Nice hostel, stayed one night there and it was relatively very private and quiet compared to other hostels. Staff were very helpful too, good facilities! Would stay here again, just with friends rather than solo.
