    The first time I have ever left a hostel review... because this was worth it! What a beautiful hostel. I spent only 2 days here as I passed through Faro. I've not found such a homely vibe in a hostel before. Home cooked oancakes for breakfast included in the price. Lovely airy rooms and a gorgeous rooftop terrace. Really chilled out little spot. I will definitely stay here when back in Faro. What a lovely spot :)

    This was my first time in Faro, Portugal as I was travelling alone was a bit nervous but this was a fantastic place to stay. The staff are amazing and you feel like part of a family and met the most amazing people who were staying there. Pancake breakfast is the best. The best experience I have had and will definitely be back. Thanks again Adrian and staff you are amazing 😘

    Me and my sister stayed for four nights and we both agreed it was the best hostel we have stayed in. We stayed in the double bed under the glass roof which was really unique and cosy. The staff were so friendly and gave us really good advice on where to go in the local area. The location was perfect, and the space was clean and nicely decorated. The best bits were the hammocks on the roof terrace and pancakes every morning!! The overall vibe was safe and welcoming. Thank you Casa da Madalena! :)

    Incredible stay at this hostel, possibly the nicest I have ever been to. Adrian and team made me feel so comfortable and welcome from the first minute. Light, airy, beautifully decorated and very clean. Would definitely return if in Faro again.

    Adrian was really nice and clearly loves hosting people! The hostel is small (no more than 20 beds) and has a chill bohemian vibe. Very clean and comfortable. It was nice to meet other travelers during the pancake breakfasts! Loved the hammocks on the terrace to relax in.

    Located in the centre of Faro close to the bus station (2 min walk), this hostel is deal for those wanting a laidback stay in Faro. The staff will check you in no time at all and quickly make you feel as if you're staying at a friend's house. They also offer good food recommendations. The hostel is immaculately clean & beds are fairly comfortable. There is some noise from the street, but apart from that, it's grand. Best of all, you can chill in a hammock with a book on the rooftop.

    Only stayed for one night, but the hostel was incredibly clean (like a hotel). Nicely decorated and the common area was cozy! Adrian was very friendly and cooked pancakes for breakfast in the morning. The rooftop terrace was really chill with the hammocks, great for chilling with a book and a beer! Rooms were fine with power outlets near the beds. Just wish there was a little shelf or something by the top bunks and maybe an aircon because it did get quite warm at night.
