    Without a doubt the best hostel around. Adrian and his crew are absolutely amazing. From the pancakes in the morning to the nights showering under the stars, its hard to find a negative. A fantastic place to stay in Faro

    The most wonderful hostel I’ve ever stayed at! Booked one night stayed 5! Super clean, super cosy and everyone is so friendly it’s more of a family / community than a normal hostel & the pancakes each morning are worth getting up for! All the staff were wonderful - shout out to tanner and his beautiful folk ABBA! I highly recommend staying here and I will be coming back!

    Welcoming, chilled family style hostel. Adrian has a fantastic small home from home for everyone and cooks delicious pancakes! Rooftop patio with hammocks is super cool. Bathroom with shower on every floor. Spotless and clean. 24/7 reception, no issue is too big or small and everyone is treated well. I will come back for sure!

    Absolutely great place. So warm and welcoming. They even have a fireplace. It was so nice sitting in front of it or in my case mostly sleeping in front of the fireplace as I was super tired :). They also had dinner at the hostel that was awesome. Staff was so incredibly nice as well. Rooftop terrace has a great view and people were actually chilling up there even though it was winter time. I wish I could have stayed in Casa da Madalena longer. The place and people made you feel so at home.

    When I read that this hostel had 9.8 average reviews I thought ‘That can’t be right, I’ve never seen that high a mark before’. Now Ikniw why it gets that mark! I’ve travelled a lot but this was a particularly friendly, generous, fun place to stay. All the facilities were lovely plus a nice breakfast each morning and communal dinner each evening. Staff were so helpful. If you go to Faro, go here, it really is a top notch place!

    It's doesn't feel like a hostel... It feels more like a second home. I would describe this more as a Homestay and I loved it. Breakfast is wicked. Staff are amazing and facilities are great. I would say for breakfast though maybe add some honey or some other topping to go on the pancakes and maybe add some bread also. 10/10
