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!.

    I loved that place, so sad i only could stay 1 night. The woman at the reception desk was really sweet. The dorms are quite big, and every dorm has its own bathroom with a big shower. The place is clean and makes you feel at home. The emplacement is great too, 5 minutes walk from the beach. You can’t walk to the train station but uber only costed me 8 euros for the ride. The terrasse is so cute and cozy. I really loved that place. Would come back anytime if i go back to albufeira.

    All of staff were so nice! It’s such a beautiful building and was a wonderful place to return home to after a day out or at the beach. The demographic was a little bit older than myself but it was still really easy to make friends.

    The staff here are one of the best parts of this hostel, they were so friendly and funny, they answered all of our questions and they gave us invaluable advice about which local beaches to visit. They made the trip even more memorable. The location in the heart of the old town is also great, although a bit hard to find the first time. As this is a historic building, the common areas are so cool and unique. We would definitely stay here again.

    I had a great time at Casa dos Arcos and I would've stayed longer if I liked Albufeira more. The hostel is gorgeous on the inside and has a lovely outdoor area. The kitchen had everything you needed and I was sad to only discover the juicer as I was leaving! Very central location and a short walk to the beach. I was in the 4-bed female dorm and it was tiny, barely enough room to put bags which was a shame but at least there were lockers and we had our own bathroom. Free towel was a nice touch.

    Very cute & stylish hostel. The staff was so kind and helpful, doing everything they could to make our stay comfortable. Our private room was very large. My only complaint is that the wifi only works in the common areas, but it just encouraged me to rest and enjoy the beautiful ambiance of the hostel! We greatly really appreciated that they helped summon a shuttle to the Faro airport. I would definitely recommend staying here.

    Booked the dorm and had a great time. A bit difficult for 8 people to share one bathroom and the room desperately needs an AC. The location is fabulous, less than a minute from the beach, and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Amazed at how many languages they could speak! The common areas are great and the hostel is right in the center of old town. Would visit again!

    The kitchen & garden are lovely but if you’re unlucky enough to stay in the dorms then it’s another story. My dorm was tiny, too small for the 4 bunks, didn’t have a lock on the door, enough outlets, or reading lamps. The en-suite bathroom was a little dirty and the shower door fell off the tracks while I was staying there. The room I was in was wedged between the kitchen and the garden so it was loud if people were outside.
