“Place where you enter as a guest but leave as a friend ;-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Location of Hostel 33 is great – it's really about 1 min to train station and bus station is only a little bit further; also to the „hearth” of the city you can get with about 10min walk. Maybe this place isn't very big but it's new and you can find here everything you need – comfortable and well-maintained beds, cozy kitchen (you only need to remember that, as for now, in the kitchen there is no oven - only microwave), barbeque area and probably the biggest and most beautiful bathroom you've ever seen in hostels. And everything is being cleaned every day. Also, people working there are very friendly and helpful with everything – from using internet on their computer, long evening chats with guests to advices where to eat/drink in Faro or what to see in Algarve. Ricardo, owner of this place treats it like a child – I'm sure he will have new ideas for developing his hostel (just after my leaving Faro he implemented his newest idea of „book swap”) ;-)
