We booked this hotel for one night as our flight got in too late to get the bus to our final destination and it really was one of the worst places I have ever stayed. To be honest Faro itself is a real dump and I wouldn't advise visiting if it can be avoided but the area in which the... More

We just needed an overnight break in a trip from Seville to Lisbon. We were looking for a place close to the bus and train station. Not the best part of town, but it appears the economic downturn has hit the whole city. Not nearly as pretty and inviting as we were expecting but it may have been the area... More

When we first arrived we were a little worried as the area around the guest house is very run down. However when we went into the hostel we were pleasantly surprised as it was light, clean and well maintained. The staff were very friendly and helpful and gave us advice about places we could go and things that we could... More

No 24H service, no coffee in the morning, we had to pay in advance so the hotel clerk had less to handle in the morning and could go back to sleep. Mold in the shower and a view similar to the center of Bagdad and I don't mean before the war... The hotel has a clean appearance because of all... More

Worst hostel on our entire portugal trip. We arrived there 2 hours later than we had said in the application (APPROXIMATE arrival), simply because the trip there took longer than we thought. When we came into the hostel our room was already given away and we got a reproachful look why we weren't there in time - and that after... More
