We stayed here twice and had the best times. The hostel has a very nice terrace where you can meet other travellers and the staff is always willing to help you find your activity of the day. The wifi is the best we had in Portugal and there was free breakfast and 10 euro meals for dinner every day. The... More

We arrived late, the room was for 45EUR -->HOSTEL!!! My bed was twice awarded. I sleep between beerkegs, almost 3 hours the night because the "Room" was next to the breakfastroom closed by a curtain! The Breakfast was ok. I'll not return back in this hostel! The Boss had no time to talk to us, to make us feeling better... More

I went here with my brother. We were adventurers and arrive to faro without having a place to stay. We looked through Internet and it said this was the best hostel to stay. We were lucky because they had space for us. We get a 4 bed dorm and pay 40 euros each! Expensive no? And when it was time... More

When I came here, i expected something like the home hostel in Lisbon that cooks a delicious vegan meal for guests and travelers once a week. but no comparison. the faro hostel offers home-made food every day, but it is very expensive and low quality. when i took the meal, they offered pork meat and potatoes for 8EUR. Now, pork... More

I spent a week on Casa d'Alagoa on july and it was a wonderful experience. This place is very authentic. The rooms are very clean and cleaned up every day. The owners are so nice and very attentive on everything. The dinners are just too good! The food is very fresh, everything is bought the same day. And the price... More

Benefit of the doubt - we stayed in a private room and I got the impression shared facilities were better than our room. However for us this was just awful. The main problem was the en-suite bathroom. The shower head was smashed to death so a stream of water just poured out of it. Also as it pooled in the... More

Great hostel, a big house with awesome commodities. Comfortable beds, nice bathrooms, great common areas and service. Located in the heart of the city, great atmosphere and vibes. Breakfast is good, and dinners are amazing. Portugal has its reputation regarding food and Casa d'Alagoa honours it in every possible way.
