Great hostel, central location. staff are great, the lady (sorry not sure how to spell your name) how is normally at the desk in the morning is incredibly helpful with booking tours etc, and Travis cooks a meal most nights which only cost €5 and they are great meals, he is also great to talk to as well. hostel has a good atmosphere with rooftop terrace and couches on the ground floor. rooms have a small balcony each and everywhere is kept clean. would definately stay here again.

The hostel overall was good. the guy that owns it is very nice. The rooms do not have individual locks on so anyone can go into any room and when they have the rooftop party the front door is also open for people to get up to the roof so this for me meant security was not great. the overall decor is good but showers could do with a revamp as the actual shower cubicles are a bit grotty looking and no hook to hold shower head. great location right in the middle of faro and close to transport links

was easy to meet people at the hostel and they had things going on most nights. it was a very clean hostel. only thing that needs to change is the dorm is listed as 16 bed dorm when there are actually 24 beds, however it doesn't seem like there are that many as got that centre wall across half the room almost splitting it in two. overall great hostel

overall hostel was good. just a shame that it is single glazed so can hear the street noise at night.

View Property Reply

That is unfortunately the disadvantage of having a hostel so centrally located! Party central is literally on our doorstep so it's hard to avoid the noise, but we do supply earphones, and can arrange for you to stay in a quieter room if you put in a request with our lovely receptionists :)

it's really an 12 person dorm as the second 6 people who share the same bathroom use the same door as the 1st dorm and there is just a 3/4 high wall seperating the two sets of bed. the main downside to this hostel is there is no communal toilet.

Beds are very squeaky, which can be slightly annoying. Kitchen is small but oh well minor inconvenience. Staff were friendly and the hostel was clean so those are the main things. Overall would stay here again

Dear Richard, It is nice to hear that the staff was friendly. We find this very important so it is good to hear that they are trained well. The hostel gets cleaned through the day so thank you for noticing! We know that the kitchen is small so we try to make it up with the BBQ area outside. And there will come another BBQ area on the rooftop! It is unfortunate to hear that your bed was squeaky, their are still a few rooms that needs some work. We hope to see u again! Kind regards, The Nomads crew

Staff very helpful and friendly, a bit of a walk to destinations such as the empire state building etc. as they are the other side of manhattan but you can always get the subway. overall very good hostel, beds comfortable and towels provided and changed daily.
