Had to stay for one night in Faro. This is a really nice place. Had a six-bed-room for 18€. It was very nice and clean. Young people who seem to be very well prepared for young guests. Next time I'd like to stay a few more days. Thanks for taking care for my baggage during the day. So I was...

Overall this hostel was good to stay for a short time. The good things were the location, it is reasonably clean, nice people and great outside space - with a roof terrace and back courtyard. It really has great communal areas although the kitchen can get a bit small when there's a lot of people around. - I noticed that...

We visited Faro the last week of September, and we stayed two nights in Casa d'Alagoa with my couple. The place is perfectly located in the Downtown. The building is really beautiful and has an amazing patio and terrace. The common spaces are really agradable, modern and clean. However, we got a double room with bathroom situated on the Patio,...

This was a wonderful find. It is located very close to the Old City as well as the bus and train station. The staff is very helpful, accommodating and quick to point out places of interest. Many activities within the Hostal including a barbecue, happy hour and a myriad of activities. If you want to have fun, or just relax,...

Casa d'Alagoa is homey, lively and exiting. The kitchen and multiple chill out areas are great, the many terraces and the rooftop are too. Whilst we stayed there we even had free dinners of high quality cooked for us (that comes with free sangria). The staff is very friendly and helpful in advising itineraries. The only thing that was kind...

Beautiful building in centre of Faro, quirky Hostel, great night. I have read a few negative reviews of this hostel on Trip Adviser, but can only say that I experienced nothing but good vibes during our visit. Staff were great, room clean, what more can you want. A great cheap travel stop.

I guess this is an average party hostel with drinks in the evening and prolonged sleeping in the morning. There are some disadvantages though - limited number of toilets (with a very strange policy of not flushing the toilet paper down the drain, but placing it in a bin near the toilet), absolutely overpriced dinner (10 euros dinner will get...

I stayed here for 4 nights and paid just over 30 euros a night when I booked in advance. The guy who checked me in (short ish guy with a long black beard) seemed disinterested and like he didn't want to be at work. The rest of the staff were all really friendly. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm...
