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.

    The receptionist, Sezile (?), was so nice and kind. Outside was quiet at night, unlike other reviews. Probably because I stayed in Oct. The kitchen is clean. The private room is well equipped. Maybe a good place who comes back for another year to relax.

    Amazing place and location. The house is absolutely stunning. The staff are friendly, but they should avoid discriminatory jokes. I had two situations with two different staff members there, with discriminatory jokes about Brazil. We were there loving their country, and then we hear back a tasteless joke about Brazil. All in all it is worth staying there.

    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.

    Very Good

    Overall a good place to stay. The room was very small but pretty clean and had an ensuite bathroom that was very spacious and clean. The backyard is very beautiful with many flowers and places for people to sit. The location is great! The major downside of this place is the lack of atmosphere so I would not recommend for solo travellers. No organized hostel events and not an overall friendly environment to meet other travellers.

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

    It was a double booking and was fully booked but still let me book. Had nowhere else to stay and the staff weren't helpful in trying to find us another accomodation or a way home after our booking and paying the booking fee. Ended up stranded for hours until we had no choice but to get a taxi of €70. Would not recommend was looking forward to our stay but very disappointed with the service provider.
