    The place is very new and clean. It has a big terrace with view on the rio de fermosa. If you cross the road you are on the beach

    Lovely looking, super clean and comfortable place to spend the hottest hours relaxing with the view from the terrace. The kitchen is also very nice and clean. I enjoyed staying here very much. Blessings to Portugal!

    This hostel basically has the sunrise AND the sunset. The lagoon and the beach so close is beautiful considering it’s 3km from the airport! If I only had a few things to add it’s that during the winter the hostel is COLD. The tiles are cold and need rugs during the winter. A fire place rather than the pellets machine would be delicious and make it cosy for the cold evenings when the sun has gone down making it a winter destination.And finally, A door needs to separate the rooms from the lounge

    I love this hostel. It feels like a house and it's right on the beach. Very clean as well. In the summer during high season also has a great atmosphere

    Location is amazing! Everything is great. Only concern is the doors to the room. Keys are always getting jammed and it can take a few twists, jolts and nudges before you can open the door. Other than that, it’s truly lovely!

    Perfect location! Across the street from the beach. Hostel is clean, modern, and with aircon. Great atmosphere and communal spaces. Appreciate being able to borrow beach towels. Very minor things (the keys to the rooms and toilet are finicky) and late check-in a bit of a clustermess. FYI - late check in should be done at the restaurant across the street. But overall HIGHLY recommend!

    I was at off season and had the entire hostel to myself. The place is clean and have all the modern facilities. It is like a big expensive house on the beach. The lady managing the check ins was really nice and helped me with everything I needed. Since no one was there, I was just able to chill in the common area which have a TV, fireplace and other things to make you comfortable. The beach is in the walking distance and there is a simple grocery store nearby.

    Stayed for a 5 days during june 2021. Hostel is great located and is part of a beachbar wich is at the other side of the street at the beach. The terrace of the hostel is at the ria formosa and has a great view. Rooms are okay and A/C is present. During my stay the hostel was only cleaned on my last day, which was a bit of a pity. Also no curtains on the bed which i prefer, but for the rest the rooms are okay.

    Overall super squeeky clean hostel and beautiful location close to beach and views over Ria Formosa but: 1) staff very absent, cleaning lady was more helpful than them 2) faulty locks on doors, took me over 5 minutes to be able to get into the room, could not get back in one morning and staff was nowhere to be seen. 3) no cups (and only one very bad pan) in kitchen: how to make coffee/tea? 4) not even coffee available. 5) Since not in high season, barely anybody staying in hostel

    Not really a hostel but a shared house with no covid rules. Location is amazing,close to the beach, great free breakfast. Felt safe, big lockers for luggage. Individual light, socket and towel at the bunk beds, the room even had A/C. The terrace view is very pretty. However there is only 2 bathrooms for the whole hostel and 3 showers which were always socking wet. Only cleaning at midday and staff presence almost non existent, no covid rules were followed nor certificates were checked.
