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.

    My stay at rich and poor hotel was great! Staff were so friendly and helpful. The location was the best, 5mins away from the beach, 2mins away from the town/restaurants/shops/bars/clubs. It was also very close in a cab (bolt/Uber) to some beautiful beaches, my favourite beach was Sao Rafael it’s absolutely beautiful and the restaurant on the beach was AMAZING (Portuguese style octopus) highly recommend, if I return to Portugal I’d definitely stay here again. Thanks very much!

    Nice hostel with simple facilities/decor, perfect for one night's stay. Private rooms are located in a different building across the street from the dorms/kitchen and café reception. The location in the town is great however and the staff were super friendly and helpful!

    The lady who works there was amazing - so helpful and sweet. I was lucky to have fun people staying there while I was and made a lot of friends, but I think normally it would be hard to socialise as there’s no common area, you just have to all sit in the kitchen which closes at 11 and then go out. Rooms were nice and clean. On my last night I had two very rude drunk boys come in at 5am, turning lights on, yelling and just being assholes. Not the hostels fault but wish someone shut them up

    Location was incredible, but lack of air conditioning was a huge bummer! I barely slept at night because of how hot the room was. But Fatima was a wonderful host! Very welcoming and friendly!

    It was very loud at night because it’s very close to the party time of all the bars and the cleaning staff is very loud at cleaning in the morning to the point of waking me up. The check-in staff was nice and the kitchen had a stovetop, fridge & dishes to use with a market near by that was nice. Good value for the money though! No “hostel atmosphere” so social scene, which I was cool with but I know some people are looking for.

    Place was fully booked, my room full. I thought with covid 19 the hostels should work with half capacity. The room didn’t have paper towels to dry the hands and it was flooding the bathroom. No shelves in the shower room to rest your stuff . No alcohol gel in the room whatsoever , noisy room . Felt unprotected due COVID 19 as the measures weren’t taken. Received also a threatening horrible email saying my booking would be canceled if I didn’t show up by 20pm, I had to cancel my dinner.
