    Loved the hostel. The location is perfect right in the center of Albufeira. A few min walk to the beach . The staff is very friendly and attentive. Christina at the front desk was amazing, very sweet and helpful. The beds are comfortable . They provide a towel for no additional cost . The upstairs rooftop is cool to hangout and meet people . In front of the hostel there is an inexpensive restaurant . The food is good and it’s convenient. I would recommend this hostel . :)

    I enjoyed my stay at SOAB hostel. The location is great, the staff are very friendly and helpful. I arrived 3 am, and they helped me with late check-in! Also there were a crazy lady staying at our dorm (absolutely not fault of hostel) and they were trying their best to ease the situation and were very flexible with changing my room. The rooms are simple, comfy, and clean. Overall I’m happy with my stay and totally recommend it

    Awesome place. This hostel is very social, my first night there I already made plans with my roomies. The location is perfect just about 200 metres from the beach. Be prepared the dorms don’t have a lock so anyone can walk in. However I always felt safe and people respected the rules at the hostel.

    Very nice Hostel with terrace and kitchen in the center of Albufeira's old town. All the rooms, also the bathroom, were very cleaned.

    If you're going to want to go to the beach often but also party in Albufeira (old town area, not the strip), this is a fantastic location, right in the Old Town and very near the tunnel that takes you straight to the beach. Reception doubles as a tourist activities agency and thus feels less personable and slightly less safe - not sure if anyone would notice if a rando walked in from the street. Rooms certainly get crowded but good if you're social, just pack earplugs. Nice roof terrace.

    Hostel was clean ,beds where comfortable, facilities are good, not a great atmosphere more of a business then a normal hostel, if you’re just looking for somewhere to chill and get your head down then it’s a great place for you.

    Pros: - very close to beach - super clean - modern bathroom & everything you need in the kitchen - nice terrace to sit at - friendly and helpful staff (although the hostel is attached to a tourist activities shop so you don’t need the staff around a lot) Cons - beds were extremely uncomfortable - no locks to get into the rooms (but lockboxes provided for each person) - my room was right on a busy street so quite loud in the night Overall would stay at this hostel again
