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.
