Excellent stay, good prize, clean and nice room, a little bit loud in the night but Sally was one of the nicest hosts we had in Portugal. I can recommend the room very much. You have 5 minutes walk to the busy centre of faro with bars and Restaurants and all You can wish. Thanks a lot Sally and all the best.

I started off by booking a (budget) room for 7 nights at sally guest house via bookings.com, & I have to say it was a good deal/stay, However i was lucky enough to get a free upgrade from sally to an upstairs room with a shower/tv & balcony that was nice of her, Thou sally wasn't there sadly during my stay due to a bereavement but the lady called "rita" checked me in & handled everything, The hotel itself was clean/tidy, Not run down or with any nasty stains or smells, Its not a nightmare to find either as its only around 10 mins walking from the bus station, At night the street outside is pretty silent so no worries about noise for sleep either, I found it to have plenty of hot water & clean towels + the bed was comfy also, The room was a good deal for the money I paid! rita was ok also, Not over talkative but not a pure dragon either, She cleaned my room thoroughly & was polite so that's about all I can ask for i guess, So all in all yes i would go back, & I WOULD recommend "sally guest house" to friends/family or fellow travellers also, Thanks. Likes - 1. Central location! right next to the old town & the bars/restaurants/supermarkets 2. The bus terminal was only a 10 min walk away 3. No curfew 4. The beach is just a short bus journey away (Two euros & 22 cents, One way) 5. A fast/efficient check in & free wi-fi, No dramas Dislikes - 1. My sink was leaking in the room, Was scared to use it as it would drip onto the wooden floor, It had some silver duct tape over the joint on the pipe but water was still getting threw 2. The drama with the deposit payment via bank/wire transfer, Ok it was no ones fault but it was a pain trying to get the first nights payment sent to secure the booking, We got there in the end thou :) 3. The reception being unmanned or worse still closed most of the time, Ok they were a buzzer for emergencies but its nice to say hello & goodbye, Or ask a question about the place 4. The lack of a vending machine in reception or even at the top of the stairs, It would be a nice touch (space permitting) 5. Nowhere to drop your key off if you have an early check out like me ie before 8am, A drop box for your key outside reception would be a good idea.

When I booked I went direct to Sally rather than use a booking site. Got a good discount and I have to say that my room was well worth the money! Sally is a lovely host - really knowledgeable about the area and confident to recommend places, I like that! My room was clean and fresh sheets had been put on that day. Had a two night stay but had I not been travelling the Algarve would have used this as a proper base from which to explore. Thanks Sally! x

The place: filthy, the staff: one was not trained and the owner was rude, there was no wifi in my room even though advertised, no info about transport to airport available, the bed was too small for me to extend my legs

This is a place to avoid. Badly maintained in general terms, lack of hygiene in the rooms and mostly in both bathrooms. The owner is a very nice lady, but that´s not enough if you want to run a touristic infrastructure with quality
