    Loved my short stay at Tilia Hostel, had such a good vibe and atmosphere. Was able to meet, chat and drink with many guests and staff members. They put on a 1 year birthday rooftop party, live music, free food and drink, just going the extra mile. Will definitely stay here again! Shout out to Goncalo, great man to share a beer with :)

    Super homely, lovely terrace, really friendly staff, well-stocked kitchen. Showers weren’t great but that was really the only flaw! Great overall

    I only stayed for one night so I don’t think I can give an accurate description of the atmosphere. However, the hostel was really clean and the staff were really helpful and lovely. The hostel is located close to the bus station and the old town area and there was a cute roof terrace in the sun! I would stay again.

    Friendly helpful staff, great location. Need to add basic amenities to make stay more comfortable. Absolutely must add a shelf to bunk beds to keep glasses, phone, water etc. there is no place to put basic things near your bed while sleeping. This is a major issue as people in lower bunk beds could get hurt if a bottle or phone falls on their head.

    I had a nice time staying at Tilia, it is a calm and quiet hostel with activities planned during the week if you want a more social experience. The facilities were nice but the showers were minimal and could have been taken care of more. Water was on the floor and leaking into the bathroom stalls. I had a nice stay but will probably book somewhere else next time in Faro to see more!

    There was no one on reception at night to keep a check on things. The lay out of the rooms is such that the rooms are very near the kitchen. Mine was across from it. At about 3.30am, people came in banging in the kitchen obviously trying to make food. It went on for a long time till I had to come out and ask them to keep quiet as the kitchen should be closed.Even then it didnt die down with a group of people talking loudly at length outside the rooms . Need someone through night to monitor.

    Beds are uncomfortable. They give you a thin douvet and sheet which is uncomfortable and cold to sleep with. You can hear street noise. Expensive for a dorm, can't believe how much hostels are these days.
