Property Description

At the heart of Algarve, Faro has one of a kind 7km paradise of unspoiled nature!

HUB 1878, with the name that appears according to the year of construction, is located in what was once a girls school from the 19th century, with plenty of history and stories to tell. The typical moorish architecture will delight your soul along with the fresh ocean breeze.

Open your bedroom window to welcome the sunny algarvian days. In our Hostel you may choose between a bed in a dorm, a private room or one of our amazing family rooms. Take the opportunity to meet other curious travelers such as yourself on our amazing terrace at breakfast, or during one of the outside barbecues, over a lemonade or a beer.

Cook for you and for your friends and family in our perfectly equipped kitchen, and amaze the others with your board gaming skills at the lounge. Get to know our friendly staff, and listen to their stories and suggestions.

Faro has plenty of renowned seafood restaurants, as Algarve is still the portuguese Meca for fishermen. If you are not in the mood for fish, try our other traditional Portuguese dishes and desserts; we dare you to not enjoy it!

Explore the old and famous Faro castle walls or run to the maritime port to take a boat to Culatra and Barreta. Be sure not to lose track of time in its beautiful narrow streets and sand dunes. If you are looking for some nightlife fun, visit Vilamoura 10 minutes away. You can also take the algarvian train from Lagos to Vila Real de Santo António so that you can visit other breathtaking villages, cities, fish markets and paradisiac islands and beaches.

All is ready to welcome you into the Algarve simple and traditional lifestyle, so what are you waiting for?

    Both receptionists were kind and friendly, and especially Francizca (I hope I spell her name correctly) who helped me find train and bus connection to my final destination and gave me all sorts of advice. I loved that in HUB you do not have to waste anything (food, books etc), they think about sharing stuff you don't or can't take with you further and other guests can use it. This is not as usual in hostels as I would wish, but in HUB it's easy. Loved the design and the atmosphere, too.

    Great place, great atmosphere. Located close to the main bus and train stations, this quirky spacious building is always a delight to stay in. (3rd stay this time, female dorm). What I love: Friendly staff, 24 hr reception, large roof terrace, beautiful little courtyard, quirky old architecture, kitchen for self-catering, large breakfast room, good security (keycards, lockers in room), cleanliness, value for money. The private double w. en suite bathroom is also a good affordable choice.

    I had a good time staying here for one night. People working here were super helpful and friendly but since it was low season there wasn't much going on in terms of hanging out with other guests etc. It's nicely located though and they seem like they really care about making it look pretty and enthusiastic and all :) Breakfast was also good!

    Hub 1878 is a truly proper hostel, not disguised as some are. A great stepping point in Faro for Portugal and easy from airport by local bus and walk. Has a proper large kitchen with most facilities and is the focal point for meeting and mixing with fellow travelers, a great atmosphere even in December. The staff are truly super particularly Rosanne, Claudia, Stephanie and Pedro who are flexible in their duties and work hard. I stayed in 3 hostels in Portugal this trip and 1878 was the best.

    Very Good

    Good location, nice and friendly staff, clean bathroom and shower facilities every single day. The breakfast was a bit disappointing however, as there are photos of meat available but none there when I stayed (13-17 January). Could have more options for breakfast. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were very uncomfortable for some reason. Would recommend this place for a short stay overall as the value for money is exceptional and it also has a beautiful, large terrace area on the roof.

    Have emailed them about my issues but didn’t like same sex bathrooms as I’m a girl and don’t really wanna shower in the same room as a 60yr old man. The breakfast was great had hot chocolates in the morning which was very nice and the whole building was nice but the toilet cubical was very small my legs were almost touching the door and I’m 5’4, and the bunks are very tall.
