Property Description

Casa da Madalena is an independently owned and operated Bed & Breakfast authentic 3-bedroom Portuguese house nestled on the Mediterranean Sea. It is located in the city of Faro, which is the historic city capital of the Algarve ( on the southern Portuguese coastline.

Upon arriving you will be welcomed by our B & B family and immediately feel at home in our friendly and cozy Bohemian-style atmosphere. We will show you to your rooms that are each appointed with accoutrements that will make your stay most enjoyable and relaxing.

All of our bedrooms are spacious. They are complete with king size beds, fresh linens.

Each bedroom has their own private oversized bathroom with shower, towels, toilet, sink, and hand soap.

During the day we recommend that you indulge in the eternal joys of sunshine, beaches, bars, spas, and great seafood. Just offshore, you can travel to a lagoon filled with colorful birds and a maze of waterways between the islands.

Before dinner, as the sun softens to meet the sea, we suggest you sip wine and enjoy a sunset scene from our rooftop terrace. The views are unbeatable as you look out to the colorful marina and marvel at the setting sun, watch the birds land on the boats, or reminisce of times gone by while viewing historic rooftops and cobblestone streets.

Right in the neighborhood you can walk to enticing many seafood restaurants, stroll through the ancient walls of the well-preserved historic and peaceful town, and engage the lively nightlife.

After dinner our rooftop terrace is the perfect setting to take in the nightlights of the city, savor a nightcap, and feel the canopy of the stars overhead.

In the morning, wake to freshly brewed coffee and tea served on our rooftop terrace overlooking the historic city and dawning sun.

Enjoy a glass of fresh squeezed Algarve orange juice as you take in the morning seaside air and map out your travels for the day.

Savor homemade pancakes served hot off the grill and topped with melted butter and your choice of syrup or jams.

Muesli is also available as a compliment to your pancakes or for a lighter start to your day.

Casa da Madalena is run by friendly and helpful people.

We are your concierge and you are our welcomed guests. We are here to greet and welcome you, provide you with information about local activities, make suggestions for dining and nightlife, assist you with maps and planning local trips, provide you with bus and train schedules, and assist with answers to your questions about anything that arises for you while in our home.

With the onset of COVID-19, Casa da Madalena is taking every precaution to keep you, our family, and staff safe. We are following the strict guidelines put forth by the Portuguese Health Ministry.

    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
