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.

    Hostel was located in perfect area near the restaurants, night life, and beach. Was woken up a few times by people in the hall or outside due to the thin walls, but this was somewhat expected with being so close to downtown. Rooms had a place to put personal items. Rooms had own bathrooms which was nice. Staff was super insightful and nice!

    Great hostel! Near from everything! The only thing that’s negative is that you don’t have any commun room, except the kitchen. The rest was just fine!

    It wasn't easy meet other people because the only common place was the kitchen. The security locker are big plastic boxes and they have a padlock at the center but you can open them anyway on the sides. The showers and toilets very small. Anyway I really enjoyed stay there, I passed really nice days. The staff was really kind with me.

    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!

    I asked to change the dates of my reservation and this hostel was the only one of my entire trip to ask me to cancel and to book again. However when I tried to do so, it would not work and I completely forgot which resulted in a full payment for a night that I would not be there. On top of that, at the end of the stay, my friend and I cleaned our room but we thought check out was at 2, turns out it was at 11:30 so they made us pay extra 30 euros in cash... nice place but not understanding hosts.

    Albufeira is about beach and bars - the hostel is close to both. Close to the beach is a positive, close to the bars...that's another matter. The facility is a retrofit, so that means there will be some quirky items, like the showers and toilets being a bit cramped. From the showers you step right out into a hallway. Dorm rooms are nice with comfortable beds and ample spacing. Kitchen and gathering areas are on the 3rd floor; It's small but at least they have them. No 24 hr check in!

    I had no problems with the staff at all and the cafe is gorgeous but, my girlfriend and I stayed in a separate building in a private double with a shared toilet/ bathroom which didn’t have good ventilation and it smelt damp which spread through the house. Our room was basic but small and hot. However, very close to the Center and very friendly staff who were very helpful.
