    All the staff at the hostel were friendly and helpful, the place was exceptionally clean and tidy and the kitchen had all the equipment you needed. An excellent location within a minute from the beach and in the midst of the 'Old Town' and a joy to wander and enjoy the atmosphere. As it my first holiday abroad alone staying in a hostel I felt safe and secure and I would highly recommend staying there and will certainly be staying there again.

    The staff wasn't the friendliest especially when I said I wasn't buying anything from their shop. They also were not very helpful when I asked about local attractions. Otherwise, it was great!

    Great place in the middle of the old town. The hostel is actually a shop on the ground floor but no big deal. The staff have got a harsh rep in the reviews but I think it's because they're stretched to run a shop and hostel at the same time. I found the girls very nice. It was super quiet so I had much of the space to myself! A great stay :)

    I had a pleasent stay during my 2 nights that i've spent in Albufeira. The hotel is very close to the beach and to all night life, which is a big plus. I didn't feel exactly safe about my belongings, though i had a locker that i had to buy. Nothing got missing though. The staff was ok, not exactly the friendliest, but overall it was a good weekend.

    Strange not having any hostel specific or overnight staff since the hostel is above a shop where you do the check in. The hostel conditions were ok but did not enjoy the endless drunk screaming outside the windows until 7 AM. Very close to the beach which is nice, but overall Albufeira and the hostel were not for me.

    Although the hostel is nice and has a good location I had a very bad experience. The staff opened the locker where all my belongings were; not only did this happen but they stole all my luggage and belongings. I had to call the police and when they came and opened all the doors of the hostel we found my luggage hidden in a maintenance closet; also the police said that this is not he first time this happened in the hostel. Truly horrific experience. The staff was no help and very disrespectful.

    It was my worst experience ever in a hostel. Incompetent reception doing a big mess with the rooms. Cleaning lady EXTREMELY rude, no customer service AT ALL. Bathrooms super dirty and bad terrace. Hostel didnt offer any activities, I have no words how bad it is. 0% caring about guests. Nothing offered to repair any of the many issues during the stay. I would rather sleeping on the street next time.
