We were two girls traveling around Portugal. To stay at Rivoli Cinema Hostel was a fast and spontaneous decision, but also our best decision. Lovely stuff and very sweet rooms. It was such a familiar atmosphere. In a great city as Porto you just gotta know the right places and the right people, just as we did. :)
