It is a very good value for the money. Hot water for showers, a clean and private bathroom. The staff was polite, but not over and above. The area near the hostel seemed rather dodgy so I didn't feel safe, but that may be more of a reflection of the city rather than the hostel. The thing that bothered me... More

We spent 2 nights there. It's a very quiet neighbourhood and close to everything: train and bus station, ferry, shops, bars, restaurants etc. We felt pretty safe there because you must ring to enter the hostel, so you receive a key only for your room.

We spent only one night at Guest House Sao Filipe, but we were positively surprised. Everything was very clean and neat. The room was basic but very cosy, with a TV, air conditioning and a very nice, large bathroom. The street was quiet so we had a very good rest. The lady at the reception was very friendly and helpful,... More

Our stay at Hospedaria Sao Filipe was nice and enjoyable. The staff was very smiley and helpful, and relaxed regarding when the bill was to be paid. We were placed in what appeared to be an external room on the roof/upper veranda of the hotel, but the room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was the only part of the... More

Used the bus from Faro airport, from where it was literally a 5 minute walk, slightly up hill to the Sao Felipe. From previews with Google map and steetviews, had been expecting to see a main road; at 9pm, the "hole in the wall" look of Sao Filipe, on what appeared to be a dodgy sidestreet was slightly disconcerting. But... More

Every time I have travelled to Portugal I always had great experience, and Faro was not an exception. Hospedaria Sao Felipe is very well located, at walking distance from the station and from the centre. There are not a lot of shops and restaurants around, but the area is safe and you can reach them in less than 10mins walking.... More

We literally were staying in a shed on top of their patio. It was not worth the 30 euros we paid that is for sure. Faro itself is not a city to visit in the first place. It is a neglected city, but not a beautiful neglected city. It is literally falling apart and the area where this guest house... More

We stayed 1 night in the room that slept 3 on the top of the building on outdoor patio. No smoke detectors. Beds were hard. Room was clean & quiet. I don't think the pictures represented our room at all. Shower was adequate. Watch out for the hot water, scalding hot! Staff was very nice & helpful. Good location, lots... More
