The location and the value for money are undoubtedly the good aspects. The staff was almost absent, we only saw a woman when we checked-in (she arrived only 15 minutes after we did), she looked confused and looked like she didn't really know how to do her job. The decoration of the rooms and common areas is a bit too... More

Funny place to stay with very eccentric decorations. The room was tiny but clean and was very expensive compared to where else we have been. Didnt get the room we booked.The owner and the woman argue a lot when he isn't sleeping in the lobby. Wifi worked but only on terrace. Good location. Enjoyable town to visit.

We booked the Residencial Dandy through booking.com. On the day of arrival (18.08.2014) the owner after taking payment brought us to a different building on parallel street. There was no promissed WiFi or Docking station or even hair dryer. My 11 year old son started crying as he had never seen such place before. I had to contact Booking.com and... More

Staff crazy. The woman at the reception didn't consider the customers. The man (maybe per husband, crazy as well) came in the terrace screaming to shut up because he was the only person of the hostel who was sleeping (we weren't screaming). The room not clean at all, there were insects running on the floor, everything was very old and... More

So we booked this hostel back in May and booked a twin private ensuite room. I arrived to find it wasn't possible (after emailing them to see if we could stay an extra night with no reply). They said that the room we booked wasn't available because they had allowed someone to extend so for a 2.50€ discount we were... More

Nice place, very unusual. Staff were friendly and relaxed. The room was comfy and quiet, air con was a nice touch in the July heat after a long flight. I had read some less than complimentary reviews before hand but I thought the place was fine.

Spent one night here. It's a very old house with very old, typical southern portuguese decorations. It can be seen as awfully corny or actually funny (I found it funny). Very clean rooms, shared but clean bathroom, nice balcony, right in the city centre.

We arrived at Residencial Dandy for a 3 night stay and were presently surprised. Although our room's air conditioning was not working and there were not two dining rooms as stated outside we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Residencial Dandy is very quirky and decorated beautifully, the pictures really do not do it justice. The people working there were extremely helpful... More

We arrived for a short 2 night break at 11pm. It seemed we had just woke the concierge although he was pleasant enough showing us to a massive room (2 double a bunk beds) for the two of us. The 2nd night we were moved to another room with its own terrace. The hotel is quirky with narrow corridors lots... More

I booked a two-night room there last month. It just appeared to be the cheapest room I could ever find on booking.com for this period. Well, it looks a bit odd and it's next to the Church, but who cares? It is the cheapest room of the town. You have a bed and a bathroom for the price, and that's... More
