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.

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....
