Good hostel when you are on the budget and want to be in the best area of Algarve. The location is very good in historcal city center of Lagos, around 20 minutes on foot from Dona Ana Beach. The room was economicaly equipped but it was clean it was enough for us. The breakfast was monotonous - everyday the same and there was not vegetables at all, but it was fair enough for the price we paid. The main disadvantage was noise inside of the hostel - young people was patying in the patio.

Had a great stay there and they actually had good breakfast !!! totally would recommend it! Location is the best ! but it can be loud at night since there is a lot party going on so if you dont join them ask for a room not on the street side.. or just get some earplugs ;-)

If you stay in the 2° floor, there is only two showers in the women toilet, so you can have to wait a lot to take a shower. The shower area does not have place to hang on our towel. The rooms are good, but the wardrobe is a little bit old and does not seal very well. There is only 2 sockets in a room with 4 beds. The wifi only works in the common room. If you need to leave the hostel before the breakfast, they prepare a snack for you with yogurt, juice, but not bread.

Probably the best deal in Lagos.

This hostel is pretty average. If you are just looking for nothing more than a bed to sleep in then it's a good place for you. As a solo traveller I found that the atmosphere was really lacking and it was difficult to meet people. The bathrooms and kitchen didn't feel very clean either. However, the staff were nice and the free breakfast was a plus!

Really good hostel, especially after staying at one of the party hostels, which was filthy. Hi youth hostel was clean and accommodating. Also out was a nice break from all the loud Aussies and English people, instead had a nice mix of Portuguese and Spanish speakers in addition to English speakers. Great value. Only downside was the internet Wi-Fi didn't reach most rooms and was generally show.

Helpful staff and clean hostel. The location is very central indeed but it's a bit tricky: some rooms are located at the ground floor so you can basically hear all the noise from the street. Either you party until late at night or you won't be able to sleep much...

Just your basic hostel - no complaints, great location though! Right next to some great bars and super close to the waterfront and all the food places. Super noisy at night, but that's just Lagos, so best to be the ones out making the noise rather than attempting to sleep before 2am.

Overall this was an ok hostel. Their breakfast was quite good, although it was set so you couldn't really get another bread roll for instance. We stayed in a four bed female dorm and it was definitely one of the smaller rooms I've stayed in at a hostel. The name of the hostel is also not the same on the outside of the building as it is on Hostelworld so this made it hard for us to find. They also had a really late check in- we arrived at 3pm and were told we couldn't check in until 6pm.

Very boosting hostel because of the area. Take ear plugs. They also need to give the floors a good scrub. Apart from that everything was basic and in good condition.

On a very busy street meaning it was quite loud and had to leave the windows open at night because of how hot it was which made it next to impossible to sleep. Facilities were very basic and not the cleanest. Internet was frustrating to use because had to login every time you wanted to use it. Great location however.

I loved my stay at this youth hostel. The staff is amazing, the breakfast is amazing, the location is amazing(oh and the beaches are amazing, too)!

What made this hostel fun was the diverse people I met and interacted with at night! We would all just hang out at the center of the hostel where all the chairs and tables are, eat and drink together. Great atmosphere. Even the receptionists would hang out with us when off duty (unofficial pub crawl!). Shout out to all of them especially George. Wished there was wifi in the rooms though.

It is the cleanest and least expensive one I could find. Very easy to make friends as they have an area for everyone to hangout. No bar or special activities like some hostels but I would stay at this one if I visit again.

It's a normal youth hostel in a party beach town.. Beds are really squeaky, breakfast is okayish, but the wifi is a disaster- you have to login every time with a long username and password. Showers- you push a button and get water for 6 seconds- kind of annoying. But it does the job. An okay hostel

Great for young partiers but the cleaning staff was not ontop of things. People threw up in the bathroom and it took them many hours to clean it up. Cleanliness was the main issue.

Great hostel-very nice summery beach vibe and the staff/guests were super friendly. Organised kayaking trip through hostel ans was very convenient. Showers are good for coming back from the beach! Right next to bars/clubs.
