First of all, the hostel picture is photoshopped. No real ocean view here. The place itself would make for a really nice hostel, it has a pool, a rooftop and a nice common area. But all of this is useless as the atmosphere is killed by the hosts and an excessive amount of rules to everything. This is not a traveller's place and it is so sad as it had he potential to be one!
When you arrive you are greeted with smiling faces. Everyone was so nice and very lovely during breakfast time. There algarve fresh squeezed orange juice was my favorite! The hostel is more of a hotel. It wAs about a 10 min walk to the beach and about 30 min walk to the city. Overall it was a great stay and a great nights sleep.
Oh yes, there are a lot of excellent smilies, but after a 5 night stay i know about what i'm writing. Ocean view is realy a place to feel at home. Situated in a quiet neighborhood with easy access and lots of parking spaces. Beaches and city/old town ARE in walking distance. I can't understand young people complaining about this few minutes walks. You can get many extras at realy fair prices, even at the bar. The staff is LOVELY and helpful. Think there's no better in lagos! Like to come back!!!
It would be nice to have a kitchen to use. They do offer cooked food, however it's hard to prepare meals for every person's preferences (we are vegetarian and there was only meat). Location is good - outside of the city center but still close to it. However, there's a massive construction site next to Ocean view. It's a bit noisy and stuff

Can't find any complain. I see lot of people complaining that it is forbidden to take food into rooms, but that is why you have common area. Owner is very correct and fine. All reccomendations

Staff were nice but smoked inside the common area. Great wifi. Location for the beach was also great. We were there in off peak so wasn't many staying there. Pool was good. Great views
The roon was very good, but the hostel is far away from the center and i never so many rules at the same place ! You have to pay for extra things like juice and locker
Mirrors in the rooms would be a suggestion
Its a beautiful Villa with nicely cared swimming pool run by a fabolous little family. I enjoyed the personal treatment as well as the fabulous dishes at night. Miguel ( the house owner) was always there to help in any situation. Big rooms, great roof terrace with fabulous view and a wonderful stay. One of my best trips i^ve ever made. Beach, market and city center in walking distance. The villa is in a quite aerea,
Perfect location to hike to all the beaches or just got to the local beach.. 20 min walk from the city center
