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.

This is the type of place where you feel at home immediately! It is really easy to meet people and they have every amenity you could imagine. The location is prime and the staff are amazing. I cannot wait to return to Faro just to stay at Casa d'Alagoa again!

This hostel provides absolutely no safety at all!! They have small wooden chests in each room where you are supposed to put your things in. However, these chests have so thin metal chains which are to small to slide a lock through them!!! Plus the chains are so delicate it wouldn't be a big deal to remove them! We had... More

If you had a problem locking them you should have warned us in order to find you a solution.... More
