I stayed here as a solo traveller at the start of walking the Portuguese route to Santiago de Compostella. I had travelled via Madrid, where I stayed in a fairly soul-less hostel, so it was a very pleasant surprise to find Rivoli. The staff were welcoming and offered useful information from a local's perspective, my room (private room) was wonderfully...

To begin with, the location of this hostel in Porto is excellent. On top of that it meets the standard good criteria: clean (mostly), comfortable, inexpensive. The staff were also extremely friendly and helpful without seeming too hostel-y. They arrange activities each night that are either free or inexpensive like wine with a dj on their roof garden or pizza...
