Staff and owners were very friendly and extremely helpful. Building itself is stunning and located within a few minutes walk of Faro.

Thank you for your review. We are very happy to help our guests enjoy their Portugal trip. The building is more than 200 years old and we are quite proud of what we have done to renovate it. Just one correction we would like to make in your comment. We are in the center of Faro, probably you meant "a few minutes walk of the marina of Faro" :-D :-D Thanks for your visit,

We loved our time at Casa d'Alagoa!!! Our double bed room was amazing and the 8€ dinners so tasty. We loved the fact that the hostel sold wine and beer as well as snacks. The directions from the bus terminal were perfect and easy to follow. Muito obrigada!

Everything was perfect, the beds, the facilities, the help and advices of Claudia our host, the only little negative point was the small power of the shower. I totally recommend this hostel!

Thank you so much for your review! Claudia has some really good advice. About the small power of the showers, they are environment friendly. The region of Algarve has a water problem.

Really great experience at this hostel! Met several other solo travelers. The hostel creates an easy environment to get to know other travelers who are staying there. Very clean. The outdoor terraces are lovely.

We don't normally stay at hostels, but this one seemed exceptional. Kelli was very outgoing and attended to our every need.

Good place, but no water pressure in the shower.

Central location in Faro and very close to the old town. The matresses in the double rooms are very comfortable. We stayed in the beginning of January in Faro and at night time it gets cold. About the same temperature was inside, especially in the living room, where was no heating. Similar as the temperature was the atmosphere, little frosty. This might be different in summer. Breakfast was simple and good.

A clean place with good atmosphere an a helpful staff. The rooms are nice as well. Nothing to really complain about at this hostel, except that it was very cold in the rooms, especially in the night. We visited the place in December though..

Despite the incredibly short stay, I had a great experience. The owner of the hostel, Diogo, is very welcoming and made me feel like home. I will definitely come back in the future, and I'd recommend this hostel to anyone!

We had a lovely time here in December - perfectly located in Faro and the staff were friendly and helpful. The kitchen was well equipped and clean and the bedroom was quiet. Nice communal area and bikes to rent also. Its also easy to get the train from Faro to other places in the algarve, the staff helped us check train times both ways for us as well. Thank you for a great stay!
