“A quality hostel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

I stayed at this hostel with a couple of friends recently. The hostel is new (opened, or at least substantially refurbished, in 2013 I think). The rooms are clean and spacious enough. The common areas are cool with some interesting furniture and objets d'art about the place.

The hostel gives guests a wrist band each with sensors to open doors, which is very handy and will surely be in many more hostels soon.

The terrace is great - the best I have seen at a hostel. Perfect spot to read a book or chill in the sun.

The location is near many places to eat and a short (5-10 minute) walk to the train/bus station and marina area.

If you're looking for a hostel in Faro I suspect this one will be hard to beat.

I'm Portuguese and really enjoyed the day I spent on this hostel. It's the best terrace I've ever seen in a hostel and I've already been in a several hostels. The location is not the best but it's only 10 minutes from train and bus station. Next time I go to Faro I will stay definitely on this hotel.

Baixa-Portugal Terrace Hostel is a really nice place to stay. Very cute rooms with atmosphere. Everything is clean an new. Not easy to find, looks like a living area. Landscape is nice.
The service is good and familiar. Good start for a trip through the south of portugal.

This newly refurbished hostel is really well done and has a great atmosphere. Luis is friendly and helpful. The terrace is a very good for relaxing and for breakfast. As it is new the taxi drivers do not know where it is and it is not clearly signposted on the door, but it is very centrally located. Overall it was great.

My friend and me slept in a 4-bed room for one night and our stay was great. We could do the check-in late in the night and the guy showed us the whole place, even the terrace just after arriving. He offered us information about Faro and Lisbon, our next destination. All the facilities were properly clean (the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen...). The kitchen was fully equipped. The breakfast, which was varied and tasty, was served in the terrace, which is a really nice and comfortable place. We had no problems there whatsoever! Excellent value!
