Very good location! Right in the center of the city, near the main square and in very acceptable walking distance to the train station. The hostel has very friendly staff and the conditions are very good, all clean and new. Totally recommended. The breakfast is also quite good and there is always something available during the rest of the day....

We have bin in the Rivoli Cinema Hostel for two nights in September and it was a nice stay there with a few exeptions. The staff gave us a warm welcome and a nice four bed room with two dorm beds. The only weak point was the cleanliness of the room and a missing light on one bed. The kitchen...

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...
