Property Description

This revamped hostel offers modern, comfortable and well-equipped facilities and accommodates 180 guests in a choice of 26 twin en-suite rooms (four suitable for wheelchair users) and 32 four-bedded rooms.

Breakfast is included in price and you have free Wi-Fi.

The swimming pool is only open from June to September.

HI - Portimao Youth Hostel is one of the most popular among young people who want to experience not only the beautiful beaches of the Algarve, bathed by a calm and warm sea, but also the lively and long lasting Algarves nightlife. To savour the spirit of Portimo, there is nothing better than to sit in the shade of the trees in the gardens Manuel Bvar and forget about time, to watch the fishing boats and to walk through streets and squares that exude the ambience of an active, hard-working town which has succeeded in keeping pace with progress.

Praia da Rocha, which is one of the most popular resorts in southern Portugal, is the reference point for beaches. Located by the mouth of the Arade river, this beach extends over a huge area of sand with some 3 kilometres long irregularly broken up by odd rock formations that the sea has been carving out throughout tens of thousands of years. This is also the right spot for nightlife lovers, with lots of places offering you a sparkling and exciting atmosphere!

Here there is everything to ensure the best of holidays in the sun!

    Not sure why the place is rated so low. We booked a dorm room because it was cheap but had a great experience. Rui and Pedro on the reception were very welcoming and passionate about their job - had great conversations with them. You also get a great free breakfast for such a low price. There was only 1 socket in the room for charging but we managed to borrow an extension box from the reception. Overall a great experience.

    Pool is dirty, breakfast is decent, most staff are friendly. Location is good if you want to shop. Rooms are freezing but thankfully there are loads of blankets in the lockers in the room. There's only 1 plug per room. No other travellers, many locals.

    The Hostel itself was okay and close to a mall (but not the beach) Perfect if you just need a place to sleep, but if you plan to spend time in the hostel during the day then I would recommend another hostel. The bathroom lights work on a sensor system which often means that after the first 5 minutes, you are showering in the dark. My light didnt work in my room for the duration of the trip. There was only one plus socket in a dorm containing 4 bunks. Customer service wasnt always great either.

    Everything was great. The only complaint - the internet was out for 5 full days and nothing was done to correct the problem. I needed internet, so I was forced to pack my things everyday and walk 20 minutes to a decent wifi point to do my work. It was very inconvenient. The review would have been perfect - as all the other staff were friendly but had no authority - BUT IF the male manager had called the internet company on the first day. It would have been great.

    What I can say, we got a dirty room for four people, with moths, mold, no balcony door handle. It was hot, stuffy and pounding. Wifi worked for 2 days and then there was no access anymore. The only plus was the lady working in the canteen- very polite, nice woman. The pool is clean, but I can't say any more good things about this hostel. I think it’s better to pay more and stay somewhere else. + no toilet paper, no soap
