Property Description

Casa dos Arcos is a very special manor house. Its an old palace built in the 18th century, where a noble family used to live.
The house and its interior remains pure and original providing the opportunity to travel in time and enjoy our unique atmosphere.

It's perfectly located, right in the center of the old town in Albufeira, less than 100 meters from the beach. Situated in one of the oldest and most famous streets right next to the center square.
You can find all that you need in walking distance (ex: supermarket, restaurants, bars, shops, transports). We have a fully equipped kitchen with all the necessary appliances at you're disposal. We actually have a supermarket just next door from the house.
We also feature indoor and outdoor common areas were you can relax, socialize or do some work.
The hostel also has a lounge bar in the garden in the summer months where we host some very cool and chilled party's on the afternoon.

The house is an old manner house built almost 300 years ago... We tried to keep everything in the palace as real and original as possible so that all our guests can feel that are in a museum and stepping back in time. Therefore having a lovely and unique experience that you will remember forever.

Every room is quite spacious and includes a private bathroom, some rooms include a balcony overlooking the oldtown while other have a window showing our garden. Each room is unique and features architectonic characteristics and decoration that remind you that you are staying in an old Portuguese Palace.

In the private rooms you will find a private bathroom, as well as tasteful furniture and decoration. You should find most of the commodities that you would expect from a hotel room, such as complementary towels, water, soap, shampoo and hairdryer.

Every dorm as a private bathroom, every bed includes bed linen, as well two plugs and private light. There is also lockers for every guest. The towels and wi-fi are FREE!

Hope to see you soon!.

    Gorgeous 18th century house inserted in Albufeira’s history area. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The facilities are always clean and organised. The kitchen is very good, with stove, oven and microwave. They offer coffee and tea. There is laundry service. Pleasant garden. Prices have a good cost benefit. Very nice experience.

    This hostel is so beautiful! It’s right in the middle of town so you don’t have to walk far. 5 mins walk to the beach. Our dorm was clean and beds were comfy. Staff were super nice too. The garden terrace is amazing too, full of flowers and character. I would definitely stay here again! Thanks!

    couldn't really fault the place. maybe the dorm was a little small but the rest of the building is so nice along with all the staff i met. only left because they were closing down after halloween for some time. the breakfast is good with squeeze your own orange juice. there's coffee and tea available throughout the day. the hostel is handy for the beach and just off the square so it's pretty quiet. i met some nice people who were staying there and they didn't mind my guitar playing either!

    The location is perfect. Just walking down the street max 300m. There is not much to choose for breakfast but you can get satisfied. The wifi didn't work that good but the rest is just perfect!

    I went in low peak time so the price was very good, it was quieter too. There was a lock on the bedroom door and lockers within. The bathroom was clean. The kitchen is beautiful, clean and well equipped. The outside area was of a high standard with extra toilets. The staff member meant to greet us upon arrival was not there at the agreed upon time and we were stuck outside for some time, but he answered the emergency number and showed up in the end

    Very very cute boutique hostel, in a very very not cute city. Amazing backyard. I didn't really see any other guests, so it was very quiet.

    What this hostel lacks in atmosphere it gains in aesthetics. It has an identity crisis. It is essentially an average boutique hotel with two additional dorm rooms. One small cramped 4 bed with bathroom, and a large spacious 8 bed dorm with only 1 shared bathroom. The staff weren't helpfull and there no onward regional information availible. I suspect the high ratings are skewed by the hotel guests and not the dorm guests . Breakfast is no longer included.
