I came just passing through faros and i gladly ran into this amazing place, met a lot of people from all over the place, and I just didn't want to leave. Will be coming back in the future for sure. They have amazing super clean rooms and an overall great environment. They have everything you need to make you feel at home. Every night you can have an amazing homemade dinner for amazing price and there is infinite beer to accompany that.

We stayed in en-suite double room which was very clean and comfy bedding. Had problems with the door but they promised to fix it as soon as possible. The kitchen is very spacious and has everything you need to cook a meal. They also have some ready meals and drinks to buy if you forgot to do your shopping. The living room has one computer or you can connect your own device for Internet. The living room is very cosy, relaxing and quiet with one or two staff members always there to help you. The staff is very helpful and always has something to talk about. We had a wonderful meal with other travellers and with the staff together, which was absolutely delicious. We then also all went out to the local club for a night out which was a great idea, otherwise I wouldn't go out just with my friend as I wouldn't feel safe enough.
They also provide towels and a wonderful quick breakfast in the morning. I really enjoyed staying there, although it turned out a little bit expensive but isn't massively expensive especially we have been staying in a en-suite double room. Definitely great experience and nice atmosphere.

One of the better hostels I've ever stayed at. Love the hostel layout, and location. There is even a patio on the second level for bbq's. I did find a bag hanging in one of the showers with a long hose attached. It was kinda weird. Most of the staff members were very talkative, friendly, helpful and a joy to converse with.

Awesome location, and great price! Very clean. Awesome staff, however, when I was in the kitchen, they wouldn't stop taking about enemas. It was very uncomfortable, and awkward. I would consider myself fairly adventurous, but I draw the line at garden hoses in my bum.

Well I've been to many hostels, who were also clean and welcomy. But this one, we didn't want to leave!

The staff is awesome and always helpfull, they are around 24 hours to help you with ANYthing and make your stay as comfortable as possible. Going from 'What to see or do' to 'Where to take the bus' or even 'Where to have traditional and good food'. They are really the sweetest people. Everyday there is a homemade meal prepared by one of the staffmembers for only €5 and it was delicious!

The building has been recently renovated and has very clean rooms and every area gets cleaned everyday. A spacious kitchen and living room area where you can meet up with other residents. There is a beautiful patio with a (really) mini-pond with fishes. And a roofterras where you can soak up some sun- even during low season - and where they can BBQ.

We travelled with 2, but we met up with so many people from all over the world sharing travelling stories or just life stories and learning so much about the world because everyone that hanged out in the living areas was eager to aks you how your day was and where you've been.

It was one of the best 7 days I had. Obrigado to Claudia, Nunu, Diogo and all the others I'm afriad I don't know how to spell their names. You have given us a wonderfull time, and we hope to see you soon!

This hostel is one of the best hostels I've ever went. The staff is very friendly, gracious and social and speak fluently English. Also their service is like in a hotel. You can ask them anything going from good restaurants to a more remote beach to go to or a good place to party. In the evening Diogo or / and Nunu make a good cooked meal for only 5 euros. I'm a vegetarian and without any problem they made a vegetarian dinner for everyone. But if you want to, you can use the kitchen as well to make your own food. We stayed in a double room that was cleaned every day and had a private bathroom. Overal it is a very good hostel, with an excellent staff, very clean and a very relaxed atmosphere. Also it is located close to the harbor and the nightlife district, the shopping streets and the old town The beach of Faro is only minutes by bus. After a few days you're starting to realize you'd rather don't want to leave anymore.
