Sun Lovers Hostel Reviews from the Web

This hostel is terrible and completely overpriced. I was paying 65 euros per night during the week.

The wifi does not work properly and wont load most pages

The bathroom was disgusting

The showers were cold

The air condition was broken

There is no privacy for top bunks

There is no security, they leave all doors open, to the hostel, to the rooms etc

There is no reception so you check in at a table in the kitchen

The staff came into the room screaming at 10am

Breakfast was not good


The Hostel has an excellent and clean structure. Its staff is also very receptive and it was very pleasant to talk to the most guests. The hostel is close to the main tourist attractions in Albufeira.

The negative point is that they did not measure the use of the water heater, so there is only one bathroom with showers with hot water, the showers in the bathroom of the rooms do not have hot water. So at the end of the day there are queues to take a shower.


Great new hostel, it just needs a few improvements to make it next level! The terrace is awesome, the rooms and beds are clean and comfortable. The bathroom stalls dont have locks, and theres not much of a social atmosphere. Some welcome drinks or events in the terrace would bring people together. All in all a great new spot and the manager seems to care about his guests satisfaction. Thanks for the stay!


The location is great! Just steps away from the city center and the beach is 10 min walk. Beds are comfy and have curtains on bottom bunks. Free basic breakfast. They said they had air con but it didnt work. There was regularly no hot water in our en-suite bathroom so I had to go upstairs to shower, which was frequently flooded. Staff was friendly but management publicly blamed them for everything which I thought was rude and unprofessional. Prices too high for what you get.


Brand new and falling apart!

Bad design has led to packing in people without facilities to support the guests. Main issue was with bathrooms: broken locks, broken toilet seats, wet toilet paper, clogged drains causing flooding, broken hot water and see through glass between stalls and for showers. Make sure to bring a lock for your drawer because front door and room doors are never locked. Think we ended up extra grumpy because the loud drawers for people to keep their stuff in woke us up as people came home at all hours. Breakfast was sad, drank coffee out of bowls because there wasnt enough cups, staff seemed grumpy and unhelpful. Trash piled up because there were no cans in rooms or halls. Worse part was hearing the owner brush off feedback even when his own staff supported our claims about the drains and horrible wifi. Unwilling to take criticism, this hostel will quickly continue to fall apart.


I was greeted by a lovely gentleman at the front door so that was a good start.But the lady I met upstairs barely acknowledged me for a few minutes. The email said you must call to confirm 24 hours before but their phoneline didnt work. It said I MUST pay in cash so I paid to withdraw money and then was given the option of card when I arrived. My name was ticked off of a napkin for checkin.The bathrooms were dirty. No bins anywhere. No electric downstairs. Too expensive for this experience.


Great hostel, very nice and new facilities. The staff was super cool especially the guys that run the bar. The rooftop creates a great space for meeting other travelers.


Had a great time staying here! The staff and owner were all really friendly and the atmosphere in the evenings was great. Hostel was very clean and the beds were comfy - will definitely come back


Honestly couldnt fault the hostel or my stay . Staff are amazing and on site to help as well as they can book and arrange things for you , they were so helpful .

The hostel has only been opened a few weeks so is still a work in progress but what you see on the pictures are real . Very nice hostel and facilities, breakfast in the morning is toast , cheese & ham or cereals .

Very close to the old town few minutes walk away from bars and clubs and a 10 minute walk to the beach .


This hostel has a lot of potential. Very friendly staff.


The sunlovers hostel is a great place to stay in albufeira for everyone. The rooms are beautiful and you get some privacy in your bed due to the curtains, the location is great because you are nearby the old town but not directly in it and the stuff is super nice and will give you a feeling of community and will be there for you with every question you might have. And if you want to enjoy a chill day at home you can get up on the terrace and enjoy the view over the city and the ocean.
