Le Penguin Hostel

What makes this hostel awesome is the people – we don't think of the people working there as 'staff' but as friends. They were all so fun to hang out with. The actual hostel is nicely laid out and the rooms had a lot of space – I highly recommend paying 5 euro for the dinners, they were so delicious and filling and after travelling for so long, it's nice to have a home cooked meal. We extended our stay in Faro because we basically love this hostel :)

The shower didn't drain properly and every time it was used, our bathroom was like a swimming pool. I also think the shower never got cleaned - there was long black hair draping from the taps and everyone in our room had just arrived. The stairs are uber steep too. Some staff don't speak english well and overall aren't very warm. Location is great but the directions to get there are not clear at all. We spent 3 hours looking for it - turns out everyone had the same issue as us!
