Hostel Faro

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

If you're planning to bask in the sun and relax on the beach in the Algarve, then a holiday at the Faro Youth Hostel is definitely a great choice.

This Faro hostel includes free breakfast, self-catering kitchen, common rooms, internet access lockers and a TV room.

You can catch a boat to the islands which make up the Ria Formosa nature reserve. The reserve has an educational centre where you can see wildfowl, such as the sultana hen, or learn how the Portuguese water dog has been saved from extinction. The town of Faro itself is an interesting place, due to its historic heritage and its liveliness, very much related to the constant arrival of tourists from all corners of the world.

Auffällig sind die Freundlichkeit der Mitarbeiter. Es sollte wirklich endlich im Winter renoviert werden.

I enjoyed my stay the room was very comfortable, and I liked the self catering kitchen and sitting room. The dormitory bed could have done with an individual light (for reading), and at times I found the hostel noisy, due to people arriving late and leaving early.

L'auberge de jeunesse se trouve à 20 minutes à pied des autocars. Le numéro de la rue n'est pas indiqué ? Il est agréable d'être près d'un parc mais le désagrément est la nuit pour les chambres qui donnent dessus : nombreux moustiques et cris des paons non stop. Comme dans toute auberge de jeunesse (surtout quand arrive l'été) c'est le bruit la nuit des occupants qui oublient parfois que certains dorment ou voudraient dormir.

Die Küche ist sehr klein, wenn irgend möglich da mal über eine Bauliche Veränderung nachdenken. Das mit den Schlüsseln kann auch optimiert werden. Es darf nicht sein, das es nur einen Schlüssel für das ganze Zimmer gibt, so ist man zu abhängig von den anderen Mitbewohnern.

While I liked staying here I felt like the common areas could have been a little cleaner and the staff a little friendlier
