    We were in a private room and there was no living room so we didn't really encounter other travellers much to give it the signature hostel feel. The kitchen, and rooms were very clean, bathrooms reasonably so however the bathrooms were out of toilet paper several times in our 4 day stay and it would be appreciated it they were monitored more closely. The roof top terrace is lovely at night (but way too hot during they day as there isn't much shade).

    Very solid stay! Good location to explore the city and the beach. The rooftop was especially nice and the highlight of the hostel. Otherwise, there could be some more common spaces to engage with others.

    Very Good

    25 Jul 2022
    Mostly good enough. The biggest gripe was the lack of AC. Faro can get hot and the room got hotter than outside. They have the best fan you could reasonably ask for but it just wasn't good enough. It was impossible to sleep and you barely felt like moving in the morning. I felt very ill in the mornings from the lack of sleep and ventilation. Even opening all the large windows on the room and throughout the hostel and opening all the doors etc didnt cut it. Avoid during hot periods

    Location of the hostel was good-- central, can walk to the train station. Cool rooftop and convenient to have a kitchen, though we did not use it. Bathroom facilities were not very clean. The worst part was-- our room was on the ground floor; every time the front door open/shut, it was slammed. VERY loud, super annoying. This occurred at least several times around 5am. By the time it was 6am, I gave up on trying to sleep and just got up.

    There isn’t much social space in this hostel, only the roof top terrace, that’s good when people are there. The door to my room didn’t seem to lock but they do give you a locker for your things. The building is safe with a fob lock on the main doors

    When I arrived at this hostel , they had taken the balance of the payment before arrival, insisting that this was the way things work, that it was the policy of the hostel to pay in full 3 days before arrival. I am a frequent traveller and always settle the payment on arrival . They had an email from me stating time of arrival , and the receptionist told me he had not bothered to check the email. I would not stay again in this hostel. A cold atmosphere, uninterested staff.

    Sorry, there was nothing I liked about this place… felt unsafe & uneasy, staff wasn’t very nice, everything was filthy and run-down, beds were super noisy, small and uncomfortable, no atmosphere at all… in the morning upon check-out the door was malfunctioning and couldn’t be opened, no one answered the phone or whatsapp, other people couldn’t get in as well. waited in the lobby for 45 minutes before the reception hours began. missed my train. pissed off.
