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

    I had a great stay. It was quiet (no traffic noise from the street), there was air-conditioning, the place was clean and the facilities were great. But what really sticks with me is the decoration and the host. The hostel is stylishly decorated throughout, with a subtle sense of humour, and the host/manager Nuno is just an all-round lovely person. Highly recommended, like other reviewers said I'd go back to Faro just to stay at the Pirate Backpackers.

    I highly recommend Pirate Hostel! Nuno is a great host and very friendly. The vibe of this place is awesome and very chill. It's a smaller hostel, which I prefer.

    we had a super nice time at the pirates backpackers! It had everything you need and more to feel at home. Was super surprised at how calm and clean the common area was while also super laid back and there was always someone to hang out with. 10/10 would come back! Thanks to the guys running this place :)

    Thank you Nuno, you made our stay feel like a home away from home. From the moment we arrived we could feel the love that resonates through you, and your hostel. If you are looking for a chilled out vibe and making real connections with beautiful souls, then Pirate BP is the place for you. Much love to you and Diana. There aren't enough words for how wonderful you are. We can't wait to come back again to your humble abode 😘

    I was there just for a night and it was difficult sleeping because the room was too hot even though they had a fan inside. However, staff was very nice and welcoming, they gave me a towel to use as well which isn't common in hostels. Everything was clean and there was pretty much everything you need in a kitchen. Also, many free items and food.
