Arrived at the hotel and first thing that hit me was the overpowering smell of boiled fish. Waited 10mins before a woman appeared and started shouting for someone. A man then arrived from a private part of the hotel which was so near he could not have failed to hear me calling for attention. His first greeting to me was... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and it was perfect for our visit. Since we did not expect it to be anything extraordinary, it was spot on what we needed - cheap, central and cosy. Reminded us of a stay at our grandparents' place. We had our own fridge in the room, hot water, Wi-Fi access, basically all you need for... More

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.
