    This is a great hostel. Could not fault in any way. Clean modern bright and spacious. I stayed in 8 bed mixed dorm and you have a large lockable drawer under your bed, could fit my large rucksack in was that big. Common areas so clean and kitchen has everything you need and more. Terrace is big and only thing I would add would be a hammock or two and maybe comfy bean bags. Location is excellent, 1 min to strip with all the bars and 3 mins to main beach. Miguel is so helpful and chilled out.

    The best hostel in Albuferia. I also stayed at the rich and poor hostel, but son of a beach is by far the better hostel. If you're coming from faro airport use it's only €6 each way and they drop you off at the hostel, it's €20 each way if you pay at the airport.

    Absolutely great location, 2 minute walk from the beach! Staff were friendly and very helpful with local knowledge and even called our transfer for us to confirm pick up! The dorms and social areas were incredibly clean! My only request for next time would be floor mats for in the bathroom, the floors got rather slippy after a few people had used the showers! Either that or take your own small hand towel for the floor :-) picky but there’s nothing else they could improve! 11/10 would stay again!

    I had a great stay here. It is a great location, super easy check in process and very good facilities. I only booked one night and ended up extending my stay. I definitely recommend.

    Fab, clean and modern hostel. Right in the city centre and on the same street that leads to the beach. It was quiet during the week and the atmosphere picked up on the weekend for our stay. It could be a nice idea to add couches into the dining area or maybe some bean bags for outside! Other than that it was great for our three night stay. Also the 8 bed dorm is very spacious and they have awesome facilities and equipment in the kitchen!!

    Great hostel with luxurious facilities and an incredibly welcoming host. Everything feels super clean and new and it's located in the heart of Albufeira. Important, at the time of my booking, it was said that breakfast came included but this was not true. Breakfast was not included and that was quite a disappointing matter for me. Aditionally, everything in the shower area gets wet after the first person has taken a shower. I do have to say that they were super clean, just bring slippers!

    One of the better hostels we’ve stayed at this trip. Everyone we encountered was talkative and made the atmosphere a lot better. We spoke the the staff members probably once the whole time we were there and didn’t see them much, but they were nice and polite upon checkin. Really nice outdoor patio, beds weren’t too bad, bathroom was okay except that the shower would leak water all over the floor. Really nice location not too far from the beach at all and the city itself was amazing.
