4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Interesting hostel in a central Albufeira area
Pretty clean and laid back hostel. It’s run in conjunction with a trendy shop selling goods. So when you check in, you have to wait for the store staff to pull up your info at the cash register. It can get very busy and crowded in the store depending especially during a high summer season. Rooftop is a nice feature after the sundown - during the day, there is no shade. Minimal assistance given from the staff as they’re busy tending the store and customers. However, there is a tourism info office just steps across from the hostel. It’s in a very busy, central area so expect some noise at night.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Amazing location. Everything is within reach. Nights are abit noisy, but can’t be helped. The only thing they need to improve on is the WiFi supply which is low and doesn’t work in the rooms
