Great location and clean rooms, happily switched our rooms when the heater in our original room was not working, appreciated the roof top terrace. It was low season and the twon was quite quiet, but I was still hoping to see some enthusiasm from the staff about what to do or see while we were in town. Not only were they unenthused, they really had no idea about transportation, food, etc. when we attempted to form some plans on our own. Luckily, there was a tourist info centre very close by.


Located in the heart of the Old Town, Ale-Hop is literally 100m from the beach! Bathroom and kitchen were both cleaned daily and towels included in cost. Great stay!


Great location in the old town and just a short ride to the main strip. The rooms were very clean and had large storage under the beds. There is also a brilliant roof terrace!

it was a really nice and clean hostel, but the staff was unfriendly and rude! they made us wait 15 minutes in their shop to look around and buy something. we didn't want to buy anything, we just wanted to check in!


very nice hostel


3rd time at Ale-Hop, would recommend this place and will be back. :)


Daniela was really nice and helpful.


Awesome hostel, great location to the beach and shops. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Great value for money! Loved the roof top pool and having the six bed dorm with bathroom was perfect! Met some amazing people there - thank you for a wicked stay! Sian, Faye and Georgie :)

+ Very clean room and all common area Comfortable bed and pillows Good kitchen Nice terrace Good location in the city center and near the beach - Incredibly tiny rooms A bit noisy at night No breakfast No lock for your locker


No lockers in rooms. Location is in a busy tourist trap above a shop whereupon the shop's customers are given preference in service, there are no facilities in the place, the staff are very busy some helpful, some entirely clueless, the atmosphere is great if you are stupid and just want to get drunk and be annoying. Overpriced for what you get and unclear directions on the website. I would avoid Albufeira altogether of you're a traveller. If you're a gormless tourist you'll love it. Horrible.
