Worth going to Faro for, great hostel. The atmosphere and big fresh family dinners (amazing BBQ on Saturday nights) and drinks creates a really good atmosphere. The common area is spacious and comfy.
One of the best hostels I've stayed in. Facilities (bunks, lockers, showers, wifi) are great, as is the location near the foreshore, bar district and old town. But the thing that sets it apart is the atmosphere - the guys are fantastic at creating a good vibe and great nights in the hostel and out and about. And their tourist tips and directions are fantastic. Would recommend Travellers as the only place to stay in Lisbon.
Seriously good hostel - pro's: Amazing free breakfast AND dinner every day, great location b/w old town and train station, good wifi, hot showers & NO bunk beds in the 4 bed dorm - made for a great nights sleep and we had heaps of space. Really helpful staff knew so much about day trips and Krakow (e.g. getting ice hockey tix). Only minor downsides are - too many keys, the top floor only has one shower & sink (same room) & 1toilet b/w 12 & not the best socially sometimes cos of the split floors
Loved 'home'. Great staff - knowledgeable about Prague, really friendly and lot's of fun. The free dinner is excellent and the best way to meet people as every comes back for it, then hangs around for a drink. The hostel activities are great and you regularly catch up with the sister hostel. It's a really social, fun, homely hostel - can't wait to go back. Also good location and decent facilities
If you are in Nuremberg and taking a break from the nearby party cities in central europe - stay here. It is has great bunk beds, wifi, is exceptionally clean and has the BEST showers (seriously deluxe) of any hostel I've booked with in Europe. The staff were friendly and helpful and the kitchen was well equipped and good for cooking in. Short walk from the train station and the centre of town. Atmosphere was pleasant, but a bit quiet on the nights I stayed. PS do a day trip to Bamberg!
Bubble is a great little boutique hostel of less than 20 people. Still has a great atmosphere and is easy to meet people, yet you can chill and recover if you want to as well. Good wifi, hot shower and non-squeaky clean beds. Only 2 toilets but wasn't a problem for us. The staff were excellent - Olga and Ana were warm, welcoming and great value. Full of information and can take you out to the ruin bars - Olga even got the hostel tix to an epic sold out pool party at the famous szechenyi baths!
An amazing hostel, one of the best I've stayed in. Great staff, location wifi, amenities and security. The beds and lockers are particularly good (I was in a 4 bed dorm). Breakfast was nice standard fare. Only tiny gripe is the common area lacked a bit of atmosphere, for this reason I give Porto's Garden House Hostel a slight edge but it is splitting hairs. Both are excellent.

Absolutely recommend this hostel, one of the very best I've stayed in. Loved everything about it and enjoyed the common area and garden/yard. Not negative comments at all!
The Garden was a great place to stay. The staff were great - very helpful with directions and Manu makes the best mojitos and cocktails at their bar. The Garden area is a great place to mingle - they do free Sangria every night and a big fresh Paella cookup a few times a week.
