I absolutely loved my stay in Casa d'Alagoa. Everyone was so friendly and nice. The place is clean and spacious. Faro itself is beautiful and a great taste of Portuguese culture. Definitely stay for dinner at the hostel and try to get to "happy hour" before running to watch the sunset!

Casa d'Alagoa was by far the best hostel I have ever stayed in. Not only was it amazing place to stay, but the staff, the activities they have available, and all that they offer is phenomenal. The staff is really what makes this hostel so amazing though- they are so accommodating, they make great dinners every night for their guests, and they make you feel so at home. It truly felt like a home away from home! I want to go back ASAP! Definitely recommend this hostel to anyone- you will love it!

Modern but with a homely atmosphere! The staff were very considerate of me being sick and ensured that the lounge music and door bell were quieter at night so I could sleep well besides checking up on me when they saw me around. Social but not a party house which is what I prefer. Downside was the wifi not working in my room, but aside from that I really liked it and would stay here again.

The hostel is absolutely fantastic, the great staff creates a really cozy atmosphere and their daily home made dinner is delicious! Will come back very soon, especially to their crazy barbecue sangria nights on Saturday!!

A very cool building, clean rooms with extremely comfortable beds! Atmosphere was friendly enough but the staff could have been more helpful with information or suggestions about what to do in the Faro area. Cheap beers, the breakfast included goes until 11:00 which is nice, but it's a very basic breakfast - would have rather saved the 3 euro or so per night and just paid for my own breakfasts. If you want to lock up your stuff in the cubby under the bed, bring your own lock (not too thick).

I loved staying at this hostel. The staff were friendly and helpful; they socialised with you. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfy. Loved hanging out on the terrace - great atmosphere. Hostel in the centre of town, bus journey to the beach,

Lovely hostel, very spacious but doesn't feel empty. Very helpful staff, great location, great atmosphere. Breakfast could be a little better, would be nice to have fruits. Thank you, I've had a perfect stay!

Very nice and very big hostel. I loved the evening dinner for which you can sign for a couple of euro..it was well made and really great for the price. Everything was clean and ok. I stayed only for one night but enjoyed it.

The team at Casa D'Alagoa are phenomenal. They're super friendly, very chatty, and the barbecues that happen only during the summer months (we went on the 2nd weekend of the year) are AMAZING - all you can drink sangria and all you can eat piri piri chicken for €15. It's a lot compared to the prices in Portugal but the atmosphere is great. If you have time, I suggest renting bikes for a day, which is available at the hostel for €10, you can see lots more than Faro (we went to Tavira).

Stayed at this hostel for 4 nights last week and was very impressed with the very friendly atmosphere and excellent value for money.Owners and staff were very friendly and work hard to ensure all guests are happy.They even offered everyone a free meal when some rooms had a problem with their hot water for one night!The building and location are excellent.Hostel Meals and lack of TV mean people talk to each other which is wonderful if traveling alone.No problem with security if you bring a lock

I really enjoyed staying in Casa d´Alagoa. I felt very comfortable and most of the staff members are fantastic with the exception of a very rude English blonde girl but I guess that we all have our bad days. The facilities are great and this hostel it is really EXCELLENT value for money. Thank you.

Really nice place, lovely atmosphere and cool people. If im going back to Faro, I'd definitely try to stay there again. The only thing that bugged me a bit was the absence of a personal locker or cupboard to put my valuables. Sometimes I worried a bit about my stuff, but its not a big thing.
