horrible stairs , i do not recommend it at all for anyone with suitcases. tiny rooms so you can not even unpack. walls of paper and noisy. the receptionist guy was a nice person however. no breakfast, and the airconditioner did not work properly. the positive part is the private bathroom

A clean, well run hostel, with management communicating clearly in my native tongue. A very short walk from the train station and bus terminal, with the old and new quarters approx. 10 minutes walk away. The reception is maintained 24/7, as are the hours of entering and leaving. They did not charge for laundering and ironing my sweatshirt!

1. I had requested a quiet rear room - what I got what the only room (out of ten), which was to the front, although the guest house was not fully booked.

This accommodation is absolutely basic. It's ideal for a Base and even better if there are 2/3 people. I was on my own, so I feel it was a little expensive. That said, it was great for getting to the train station

The room was merticulously clean and comfortable, if somewhat small. I would highly recommend this to any couple. There was a member of staff on the reception to let you in if you are out late. Lovely designs in the property which brightens the whole place!!

For the price you pay, I found this quite a decent hotel. For us, it was conveniently located (close to Faro's train station), but the neighbourhood isn't the nicest of all. The city centre is just a few minutes on foot though. The guest house is a little bit noisy (thin walls and thin doors, so you can hear literally... More

I stayed a couple of nights on a business trip. I have to admit for the price, I was a bit wary but there was no need at all!

From the photo on the advertisement and the price, our room was not as big as we expected and compared to other accommodation in other places, did not rate as well contrary to what other travellers have said.

“Ask for the rooms inside the hostel. We had a room for 3 and it was in the back yard. The hostel looks very authentic on the inside. The rooms from inside are for 2 people.”

“I imagine the rooms in the hotel itself (as opposed to on the roof) are a bit quieter and more 'traditional'.”
