Property Description

Our house, belonging to one of the oldest families in Albufeira, is located in the heart of the old town “Baixa” and was completely remodeled in order to offer our guests the highest standards of comfort possible. We love tradition in order to transmit this to our guests.

The building consists of 4 floors with several dormitories and double rooms. In the ground floor you will find our beautiful Café “Mané” where you can have a
wonderful breakfast in the morning with homemade, biological and natural products or a snack during the day.

Our venue is located only 1 minute from the main beach “Pescadores”. The vibrant city centre with its bars, stores, and restaurants, as well as the extraordinary “Nightlife” is only a few steps away.
Just vis-à-vis you find the bus stop from the bus company “Giro”, which is connected to the entire town.There is also a central taxi stand just around the corner.

An array of activities can be enjoyed in the surroundings, including hiking along our unique coasts or by participating on a spectacular surf session in one of our beautiful beaches.
The hostel is 600 metres from Old Town Square, 250 metres from Fisherman's Beach and 1,5 km from Albufeira Marina. Faro Airport is 46 km away.

We are looking forward to welcome you!

    Absolutely loved the staff at this hostel! They were always super nice and happy and helpful and smiling. Nice clean and comfy dorm. Pretty small toilets and showers, but clean and worked well. Nice kitchen upstairs and really lovely views across town from the rooftop terrace.

    We enjoyed this hostel. Joel and David are exceptional hosts - very welcoming and helpful. We appreciated their local suggestions. Our 4-person room on the top floor had it's own large balcony, more like a terrace. Security is excellent. The hostel is located close to the beach and city activities. We highly recommend it.

    This hostel is the nicest hostel I could imagine. The owners were lovely and amazing hosts, the place was very clean, and it’s a minute from the beach and several resturants and bars. It’s also a short taxi ride to the Strip (costing about €8 per taxi). The only thing that could make this hostel better would be if it had an oven, but that’s all that we could think of! We will absolutely be staying here again in the future! 10/10 would recommend

    Nice hostel, kitchen well equiped. Kitchen and bathroom a little far away from the room were we stayed at. Bathroom was almost always flooded and had poor ventilation. The owner was very nice to us and helpful. We always found a nearby parking for our rented car. Perfect location, just a few steps away from the main albufeira street.

    The location in the old part of the city is kind of perfect for beach and just going around. A lot of noise coming from the street (parties) to our room which was a bit convenient. Great facilities. Staff could have been a bit more helpful letting us know at arrival where to go and what to see:-)

    Very dissaspointed in this hostel. No atmosphere what so ever, very little space met other travellers. Had to fight to get the outdoor terrace open. Kitchen could only really be used by one person at a time. Lastly the information reception gave us about getting a train to Faro was completly wrong. Ended up paying about 3times more than we should have for that fare

    Kitchen looks scary and we found some bugs. Our room doors were really tiny and easy to open.
