    The hostel was very easy to find and in a perfect location for exploring Faro. The staff were fantastic, very understanding and kind to us. They went out of their way to accommodate our bikes and extra luggage. The room was clean and the lockers were large and sturdy. The bathroom and common areas were spotlessly clean. The kitchen was fully equipped, clean and even had decent coffee! I highly recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Faro

    Awesome location, dorms are nice and spacious (at least in covid time where 50% of the beds are unused). Lockers have regular size, key is provided. Overall good value for money however, none of the three bathrooms was fully usable: either the water pression isn’t strong enough, or the shower’s door doesn’t close well but there’s always an issue. Some work should be done there to fully upgrade accommodation.

    I really don't like to leave negative reviews but I belive its imperative for the owners to see what is going on. Great location and the building is great very beautiful but unfortunately its getting very run down and things need to be looked at and looked after so guest are happy, stay longer and have a good exspireance. Its simple things that are coursing all the problems, no toilet seat showers don't work properly equipment the makes noises arise are not clean there are many things.
