We didn't see anyone ever cleaning the rooms. In the bathroom it was normal that you had not any paper for drying your hands and the soap reeks like chewinggum. The atmosphere was very poor and there were not many backpackers but a French school class who were very noisy in the corridors all the time. And I hung up some clothes for drying on the terrace...someone had really stolen one of my tops! Further the kitchen like a small closet. It was reeking and not clean and bad facilities also...
Really nice! (just missing some locker for big suitcase...)
This was a great place to stay once you find it! Right next to a park, located in a residential neighbourhood, it was very peaceful. Plus, it was only a 10-20 minutes walk from city center, the docks to ferries and groceries were very close. The staff was nice and though the facility was pretty basic, it was very clean. They offer lockers for valuables at no charge and the way you lock your room keeps unauthorized people out, assuming your roomies follow it. Great value and a great place!
Only bad thing is the internet not working at all the youth hostels I stayed in while in Portugal; and it was a bit far although the city is really small and you could still walk throughout it
Good toilets and bedroons, breakfast not too bad. Each bedroom has only one key, so you need to ask in the reception all the time about the key.
A quiet place, very friendly staff and the breakfast included is def value for money. And they have a nice terrace.
This is an excellent hostel, very central beside a park. The staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly and the free breakfast adds to the good value. It is very clean and there is a good terrace to relax in the Portuguese sunshine. The only downside is that it is very quiet with only a few guests. However I will stay here again when I visit Faro.
It is cheap but will need 15-20mins walk from train and bus station with heavy backpack. wifi is weak in room. got few mosquito bites at night as the window does not have net screen and it was pretty hot. the dinning room is very hot like a green house at daytime. free breakfast with Portugal YHA standard was not bad. they have a pc for free use. staff are helpful. kitchen is small but you can still cook something. noisy and dirty when group stayed.
