Such a great hostel, staff were so accommodating! They went above and beyond and really do make the hostel what it is. Such a great hostel with a great little area to chill out in, heaps of information about things to do as well buses/trains. The rooms were super spacious and clean, bathrooms the same. It's in a great area, opposite a cute little garden square, near the best attractions and heaps of places to eat. About a 15 minute bike ride to the beach, which you can rent here.

I stayed at tis place for just 2 days because I had not more time for traveling. I was feeling very comfortable in the hostel. I was feeling like being in a family. The owner Diego went out with us to the pubs and Claudia helped me everytime with my travel plans. I would go back. What I didn't like that my lock didn't fit the safe and the safe was not very safe, it was easy to crack. But I think you don't need to lock up your stuff, the hostel is very safe. Thank you guys!

Thanks so much for your words! We really love what we do here. We have also the best guest coming to our house. Don't forget to come for a visit next time you are in Faro.

One of the best hostels I've ever seen. Clean, good breakfast, well equipped and large kitchen, beautiful common areas. Staff seem like family and are keen to let you join in all activities. Special thanks to Kasia for turning the reception area into a sickbay and nursing me back to health during her shift after the Saturday night out. One very small criticism: The maintenance of the rental bikes could be improved just a bit.

Thank you so much for your review! We do like to take care of our guests ;-) Thank you also for helping us with the bikes. We rearranged the process of fixing the bikes to prevent this from happen on the future. We will show you next time :-D

Honestly I really loved this hostel, it is so homely and warm. Like minded people and atmosphere. The location is really good, really close to airport about 15 Euro cost and 15 min drive. The rooms are really clean and even have a little table thing with a lamp :D Solo travellers will really like this place as every one is really friendly

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thanks for your review! We do like to meet other fellow travelers here. :-) Thank you so much for your visit. Just one small correction ;-) we make airport pick ups for a cheaper price than the taxi (just 10€) and also with a small tour of Faro along the way for you to get your bearings.

There are no words for how perfect this hostel is. Safe: 24hr reception + key to the room. Location: couldn't be better. Very clean (I loved the wooden shower floor), amazing house+terrace+bbq. But the best part? The best, craziest, sweetest, coolest staff EVER! Whether you need info or food, want to go out or just chill at the hostel, they are always there for you and they're truly the best I've ever met! Kasia, Denise, Zosie, Sam, Ruben, Thomas, Laura, Amanda, Martyna, YOU GUYS ROCK!

This is a great place if you want to meet people and youre up for being sociable or having a party, lots of drinks, nights out, dinner every night (for additional fee). Very good communal facilities, although dorms are average. The private rooms are pretty good though. If you want a bit of space then I would definitely recommend getting a private room. All staff were friendly, with tricia being really great. free wifi not very good connection though. Excellent location.

Thank you very much for your comment. We do continue to decorate our dorms even though in terms of functionality they are very over what you would expect in a hostel. Our privates rooms were the ones we finish first with the decoration. Oh! And Tricia says hi! Hope to see you next time you come to Faro

Wonderful hostel! Fabulous location, amazing staff, friendly and communal atmosphere, 2 outdoor patios to eat or socialize in, full kitchen with option to buy their very nice breakfast and dinner. I stayed in a 4 bed mixed dorm with non-squeaky wooden bunk beds, enough space, individual lights, and lockable wooden chests instead of lockers. They also have lots of bikes to rent! Good wifi.

Thank you so much for your great comment. Your description of the house is amazing :-D We have designed and built the beds ourselves as all the renovation of this more than 2 century old house. Just one small correction... our breakfast is free :-). It was great having you around the house. We hope to see you very soon

This is by far one of the most inviting hostels I have ever visited. The staff members are passionate about travelling, and life. A perfect blend of personalities, that uniquely woven together form a family, which constitutes towards the unique character of the hostel itself. Everything was cleaned spotless, the rooms were well ventilated. The food was well prepared, and very homely. I give Casa d'Alagoa my personal recommendation, this place is close to my heart.

Thanks so much for your words. I must ad that it is not only us that can make this atmosphere, it's our guests that make it also. Great having you here, we had amazing times with you. Next time you'll be here, we will cook you something special ;-)

The hostel is just great! Nice and mixed staff, comfy common areas, large kitchen, roof terrace with barbecue. the only downside is the street noise from cars and planes, but that can't be helped much. the location itself is very central. my advice: get the 12 bed dorm instead of the smaller ones. why? because it's huge (more space per person) and has its own bathroom and little balconies. enjoy!

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you so much for you review. Our 12 Bed Dorm is huge and has great balconies but next time you should try the rooms turned into our beautiful patio. Nice having you in the house. See you next time

Our stay at Casa d'Alagoa was one of our best experiences in Portugal. The hostel offers an aiport shuttle, which was in time and great in regard to price. During our stay the hostel staff was very friendly and always present. There is also the opportunity to have dinner with the staff and other guests. It was a delicous dinner for a good price. If you are looking for a hostel in Faro, that's the place to be, Thomas & Franziska

The best run hostel we've been to in Europe - super clean and in a huge building! Large comfy common room with good wifi and really homely atmosphere. Delicious dinners offered every night for £5-10 and breakfast is decent. The 12 bed dorm was really big and bright with nice ensuite facilities, personal reading light and power socket and a huge trunk locker. Perfectly central and near bus station so couldn't recommend more :)

Had an amazing stay at Casa d'Algoa. Lovely house, beds, staff, food, common areas and location. I loved it so much I came back! The staff are all so friendly and helpful. The hostel is extremely well kept- clean, spacious, great beds and bathrooms. Would definitely recommend it

I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. I was travelling alone and found it very easy to meet other people in the social areas. The hostel was very clean. They organise some events through out the week and make meals in the evening (8euros)
