Faro Hostel Reviews

It was alright.

Ok, I guess I'm a bit biased since I stayed at an AMAZING hostel in Lagos the night before for the same price. To be honest, this place reminded me of a summer camp or an old high school. I really am not a fan of places that just hand you your sheets and tell you to make your bed, but I guess that they wanted to cut down on costs. It was nice of them to provide breakfast in the morning, but really, even having a worker hand you your coffee and make sure you don't take more than two pieces of bread is rather stingy. Overall, I'd say that this hostel is decent, but not the best. And the staff wasn't particularly friendly to many girls in my room. Regardless, it's fine for the price and not a bad place, but don't expect to feel like you're at home here.


Good location

The hostel is still open after midnight -- a possibility to sleep when you arrive late at the airport. I slept in a 6 bed room without windows and only on opening in the ceiling. Only one key per room. (very) average breakfast. well kept and not far from the sity center -- doesn't need any bus or taxi to be reached. Wonderful terrace to rest or have breakfast.


A spacious hostel that has potential, but many negative sides

The hostel is spacious and well-looked after, but there are certain negative sides, which would make me want to find another hostel if I visited Faro again. The kitchen is tiny! You can fit three people in there, if no one is moving. This is pretty ridiculous, since they have another spacious area with sinks, counters and a fridge, which is only meant for staff serving breakfast and thus it is being used 1.5 hours a day. There is one "computer," but the internet is not free (there is a building next door with free internet, open around 9 am-6 pm). The staff also didn't have the password for the computer, so no one could use it, and their printer was broken. The common room is locked at midnight and after that, there is no place to stay, unless you want to be in your room. There is a one-key policy in every room, even in big dorms. If someone has locked the door, you have to go around the hostel looking for the person who has the key. The bed linen smells strongly of bleach.


Me and my girl enjoyed a lot our stay. We had a few problems, because of the noisy wood beds. Some stupid asshole called the cops. We went to the Police station, but the cops were kind to us. We will be back soon, and the next time, we'll use the floor!

I got totally washed out in a storm at Sagres in May 2002 and went to Faro HI hostel to dry out before my flight home. It continued raining for the five days I was there but, surprisingly, I found Faro a great town. I confirm the comments about the staff, they are good. The only problem I had is that of smoking in the common areas (I have a serious lung problem). I hope to go back for a pre-Xmas trip this year (2006).


A good choice for your stay in Faro. The beautiful old town is just ten minutes away, parking in front of the building, the staff is very friendly, it's easy to meet other people, common areas and bathrooms are well-equipped, modern and clean, but the wooden beds quite noisy. We were there midweek in September and the town was a bit too quiet in our views, but I suppose it's different on summer weekends.
