    I had an amazing time at Aloha hostel. I stayed for 2 nights. The first night it was relatively quite (I think due to being low season), and the second night there were more people. There was such a family vibe to the hostel which was really nice and made it feel safe. All of the facilities are amazing - large showers, clean kitchen and a sunny roof terrace. I instantly felt welcomed and reception were helpful in giving tips or ideas on what to do in the area! Will come back again!😊

    I liked staying here. Perfect location and good service from staff. They should just do some improvements on the windows and beds to make the night more comfortable. I’m coming back for sure! 😉

    Very nice and comfy hostel. Great location in Portimao, everything reachable by foot (bus, train, boat, restaurants, supermarkets). Staff is very aympathic, facilities are clean. And the size (small hostel) makes the atmosphere more like home

    Clean and comfy beds. Nice facilities. In the late fall there were not a lot of people here. Not sure what it's like in other seasons.

    It’s a nice hostel in a great location in Portimão. The hours of reception are limited so I didn’t really meet the staff but they helped via WhatsApp before arrival. There were several other guests but people didn’t seem to be interacting a lot. There was a kitchen, lounge and a balcony, mixed toilets and showers, and several dorms with lockers inside. The beds were comfortable and the facilities were clean. Overall a nice play to stay, but would have liked to have a lock on the bedroom doors

    The property was dirty, no reception , extremely loud music next door until early hours of the morning. No air conditioning, no sheets only bedspead. Kitchen dirty. Overall it was very disappointing, the noise from local bars, drunkem revellers and traffic was a nuisance all day everyday. Very poor.
