It has 4 bed dorms with lockers.There is a large continental breakfast. The self-catering kitchen is large and there are 2 refrigerators. I bought fresh fish for 2 euros each morning from the fish...

Compared to the other hostels (for about the same price) that we stayed at in Porto, sintra, ericeira, lisabon and faro this one was the worst but it was still good. The breakfast is very nice with yogurt, cereals, bread, ham and cheese, different kinds of teas, hot chocolate and coffe. The dorms are great as there are only 4... More

I usually don't book hostels in advance when I travell (I am a real frequent traveller) so often I encounter hard time to find a place to sleep. Because of that, I usually do spend more time to serch hostels, hotels, and guest houses. I.e. Lagos, the first night I have checked over 10 hostels znd all were fully booked.... More

This was a nice hostel to stay in, super nice and friendly staff, everything is kept clean, location was superb, close to restaurants and right by some of the nice beaches, not far from train station, free breakfast was nothing special. WiFi did not work in my room.

I was in a 4 bed dorm. The hostel was spacious, clean and with a big and modern kitchen. The breackfast was great too. The Hi Hostels are generally great in Portugal (at least the one I have been in), but this one was the best. Prices are really good, service also great. The hostel is central located and the...

Lagos Youth Hostel is perfectly situated near the center of the city and close to the train and bus stations. The rooms on the street side are very noisy all night and as there's no AC, you'll likely keep your window open. The staff is very nice and will try to help you with everything you need. The common toilets... More

I stayed there only two nigths, for it it was okey. I wouldn't like to stay there longer. Good location, cheap, internet connection, lockers so you can keep your stuff safe. It has all the basics you need and basic standard.
