    Stayed here on my first stop in Portugal. Very solid hostel! Had a really nice time here. It’s a great option if you just want a good nights sleep or to meet and socialise. The beds were surprisingly comfortable and the rooms felt clean. The social life was there if you want it. I’d definitely say this is the better hostel to stay in Faro!

    Very nice hostel in a good location in Faro. The staff were extremely friendly and created a great atmosphere. We arrived on a Saturday night and they had a pop-up bad on the patio. At 11PM, this ended and everyone who wanted to go on partying could join a pub crawl, leaving the hostel quiet for the people who wanted to go to sleep. The perfect way to handle that, I think! We were in a 12-person dorm, which consisted of four very tall triple bunks - the top one was a bit of a climb, but the beds were comfy

    Friendly and helpful staff, always ready to help. I was in 6 six bed dorm. The lockers were too small to hold my 40L backpack. 3rd level bunk bed is somewhat inconvenient. Unfortunately, it was noisy early in the morning (7 am) due to construction in building across the street ((no fault of the hostel). There are get-togethers and Pub crawls Thursday to Saturday. A daily group tour would facilitate meeting fellow travelers.

    Very beautiful hostel, just a little bit expensive maybe. The room are very nice, as well as the kitchen which is very well equipped, cozy living room and beautiful terrace with tables. Recommended for someone who is not looking for the cheapest option.

    Great location & overall facilities. Unfortunately not the most sociable and therefore not easy for solo travellers to make friends.

    Absolutely terrible! I’ve stayed at many hostels and this was by far my worst experience. There was a constant stream of noise from the hallways, outside and inside the room. The bedroom doors are loud so anytime someone leaves the room it’s as if the building is crashing down! Cancelled my second night due to getting no sleep the previous night and the hostel refused to refund me for the cancelled night. Not only were the amenities bad but so was the service! Stay if you DONT want to sleep.
