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... More

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... More

This hostel is in a really beautiful building! They have multiple areas for socialising, hanging out, eating and being on your computer, outdoors and inside. There's a big board of activities in the Faro area, including the timetables to get to the beaches, islands and national park nearby. The staff in the hostel are super friendly, happy to answer questions.... More

If you're heading to southern Portugal, this hostel should be on your list of sightseeing attractions! It's not just a place to stay but actually an experience with all the amazing staff, great atmosphere, evening dinners and parties! Plus variety of rooms to suit everybody's needs!

The staff was super friendly and the overal atmosphere was just perfect. I had... More

Can't say enough good things about this hostel, by far the best I've stayed in. The staff were very friendly and informed me very well on the best things to do in the city. If you can plan to go on a Saturday when they have the "party night" and attend the dinner in the hostel. By far one of... More
