And that is a big thing, since I am a low-cost traveller and I stayed in an impressive number of hostels already. The hostel is very well located, from the bus station 10 minutes on foot in the old town. Staff is extremely friendly, english speaking and helpful in every possible way. They make you feel welcome from the very... More

I stayed here with 5 other friends in a room of 6 which was nice. The room was modern, simple and a decent size, didn't feel cramped. It was immaculate too and the beds were comfortable and each with their own lamp & plug. There were 2 bathrooms right next door which was ideal and both were clean, however the... More

The Hostel is a big and comfortable house not far from the historic Center. The house has a really cozy and friendly atmosphere. The kitchen is complete for cooks and the breakfast in the morning is adequate to a hostel (juices, milk, bread, jams, butter...). The rooms are also great, each bunk bed has its own energy plugs and light... More

I've travelled a lot over the past 20 years and this was one of the best hostels I've stayed in. It isn't without its flaws, but if all hostels were this good, then we'd all be happy travellers. It's the kind of hostel that you always hope to stay in, but you begin to think is some kind of travel... More

From the outside the building doesn't look that special but once you enter you are in the perfect hostel! Very spacious rooms.Lots of tourist information on the walls, not only about Faro but also about other touristic sights in Portugal. Cosy decoration. A large and very well-organized kitchen, good beds and last but not least very helpful enthusiastic staff at... More

I just spent 3 nights in this cosy hostel which has a great kitchen with 2 ovens (a rarity) and a lovely lounge for meeting people. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. On checking in you are given a tour of the hostel and a review of all the places to visit in the Algarve. Great service with... More

This place deserves a MASSIVE THANKS for everything they are doing. Staff is amazing and really helpful. Every Saturday a themed dinner and when I stayed (more than a year ago) they also had live music on the terrace. Place full of atmosphere and character, also well located. You can see that owners really do care about their hostel and... More

It's been more than year and a half since I left this place, but it's still in my mind. Beautiful place, located close to center, near beautiful park. Staff and owners are superfriendly. Hostel offer parties, with delicious food and all you can drink sangria or beer. Also homemade dinner is available every night for good price. Rooms are clean... More

Driving from Lisbon to Tariffa it made a great stop over. They were accommodating and helpful when we pulled in late at night, very welcoming. Wish I was able to stay longer but alas I'm pulled towards spain.
