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!.

    Cool property. Great shower. Appreciated an all-female room option. Will say there can be a bit of street noise all night long depending on where your room is (but nothing I couldn't silence with ear plugs). No complaints!

    Best possible location for any hostel! Right in the centre next to the nightlife & restaurant’s, and the beach is easily a 3 minute walk. Would definitely recommend

    A hostel inside an ancient palace is definitely a wonderful experience you shouldn't miss. Gisele you're the best!! It was so fun to have a relaxing coffee at the yard. The location is just great, the room& bed were comfortable. However, not a place for socializing with other people, if that's what you are looking for.

    The house/building is incredible with its older decor, and the garden is so lovely & relaxing. I stayed in the all-female dorm and the security here is ok - lockers for your valuables, but the door to the room was always open. Bunk beds are a little creaky and the lighting in the room was really dark but the private bathroom to the dorm was really appreciated, with a hair dryer, towels, linens, bed-lamp all included. Large kitchen, many common areas and great location in the old town

    Overall a fine place to spend a night or two. Beds and linens are somewhat comfortable and staff are friendly and helpful. It's not really a place where you're going to meet people for outings. The facilities are interesting - there's a large living room and dining room area decorated with antique furniture. The kitchen is well-equipped and large, which leads to an outdoor area with some seating. Wifi works well in the living areas but less good outside and quite poorly in the bedrooms.

    Had an alcoholic in my room who kept smuggling his wife into the dorm on my first night so literally had no sleep until he left. Fab location. Incredible garden. Rooftop view is to die for.

    Exceptional location (two mins from the beach) and lovely property. Not much social vibe however, and very expensive for the value you get. Ideal for couples imo. Only the main door locks, so security was a concern. They don't take card, so we were forced to walk to a cashpoint with hundreds of euros in our wallets, another cause for concern.

    Cramped rooms. Poor WiFi. You can hear everything through the hostel. The beds are squeaky and loud. Way too highly priced for a hostel.
