Property Description

Ahoy mateys!!

The humble pirate inn is a unique alternative hostel in Faro, right in the heart of Portugal’s beautiful Algarve region. This lovely home-away-from-home is located in an authentic portuguese family townhouse smack-bang in the center of Faro - only minutes away from everything the city has to offer and a bike ride away from the sandy beach and the adorable Flamingos.

Our little house is located at Rua Aboim Ascencao 47, just a stone throw away from Faros famous Carmo Church and its Bone Chapel, and around 10 minutes by foot from the train station, bus station and marina. Our central location means that you’re also only steps away from local bars, restaurants, cafes, markets and other facilities - So, you’ll never be bored, hungry or lost…

This independent hostel is the brainchild of a portuguese seasoned traveller who puts the needs of his backpacking guests first, and during his years of travelling found that the best hostels are often the smallest. This cosy Portuguese house is a 16 guest special with 2 dorms, 2 privates, a home-style kitchen, comfy handmade common areas, tv room and sunny backyard. It’s a real home-away-from-home for the laidback weary backpacker and lover of the humble chillout. Now while certainly it isn’t the hilton, it’s guaranteed you’ll be treated with kindness, you’ll leave with new friends and maybe even a ever-burning desire to keep coming back.

Our friendly and scruffy-looking crew will do everything within their reach to provide you a clean and cozy stay and aim at giving you the best advice about Faro and its surroundings.

Come for a visit if your tired of big sterile company owned hostels, and help us help you fall in love with Faro! x

    Love it! Booked a few days and was going to stay in the airport because I would've missed check in and not arrived till about 1-130am. Flicked Nuno a message and he was so accomodating and happy to wait up for my arrival. 2 nights into my stay and I don't wanna leave. Nuno has great recommendations for anything you want to do in Faro, the hostel environment is so chill and so welcoming. Beds are nice, rooms, wash rooms, kitchen are always so clean. I see why people always come back ♡

    The pirate backpackers is now one of my solid favourites. Captain Nuno is a spectacular host, taking us for a bike tour around the salt flats, recommending places to visit and eat, and always supremely helpful and cheery. The hostel is quiet, clean and friendly, he has opened his home to share with you. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

    WARNING: if you stay at this hostel, you will never want to leave!!!!!! This hostel is like a second home... so cosy, so many places to chill or be social, great well-equipped kitchen, HUGE beds and privacy curtains, large bathrooms, and really really good vibes. For a solo traveler this place is a DREAM! The owner is so nice and he took us on a biking tour, and gave recommendations for all the best places to eat and drink, and keeps the social atmosphere alive. This place should be famous :)

    Nice, cozy place with towels and a clean kitchen with all the basics (oil, seasonings/spices) if you like to cook for yourself. Nuno is great with lots of recommendations about what to do and where to eat. Was low season so it's relatively quieter, especially during the week, but the other travelers were all really nice and chatty. More of a friendly-social, rather than a crazy party hostel vibe.

    Overall we had a perfect stay here! The hostel has a great atmosphere. Also the staff was very nice and helpful by all accounts - even when a bird at the beach pooped on my towel which was gross, the guy at the reception gave me some soap and helped me out. Thank you!

    To be honest, my husband and I had a very pleasant experience at this hostel! The owner is awesome and we got on very well! There are few improvements that was suggested and I'm glad to know that the owner took our feedback in person and in a very positive stride. We will definitely visit our friend again ! :)
