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.

This was the fourth time I've stayed in the Faro youth hostel. All the staff are friendly and helpful and have a good knowledge of the area. There is lots of interesting things to see and do in Faro and as deserves more focus as a holiday destination.
