After 10 days of being on the road and having traveled up from faro we where happy to be finally in a 'home' . Upon arrival we where welcome by joao & team and then went ahead on a 24 hours sleep ;)
Only after that short ;) rest we realized how original the concept of the hostel was (mind you we had an ensuite room with wifi, fridge and cable tv ... so not quite like i remember hostels from my younger years but much more resembling and better hotel room..)! We particularly loved the interior design and the concept of having no fixed prices for extras but a box fro voluntary contributions !!!
Amazed by the wide range of activities we decided to come back here next year.
The only negative part was the group of people that had organized a dinner one evening that ended up with many drinks and loud laughter until late night - we apologize to the other guests that we disturbed although i think all people in house where there with us ;)
