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.

Positive: Very friendly staff with good recommendations. Really enjoyed Desert Island, so thanks for that tip! Points for improvement: There was no electricity socket in my top bunk bed in the female dorm, so I had to go to the common room during the day time to charge my smartphone... Would be nice if all beds in dorms had sockets. This only seemed to be the case for bottom beds unfortunately. This would allow night time charging in dorm room itself. For breakfast, perhaps you can advertise on the breakfast list that soy milk is an option. I saw somebody drinking a soy milk drink after I had already put regular milk on my cereal.

location and supportive, caring staff. The outdoor space with the park next door was over the top. Breakfast was a bonus and enough. I enjoyed the variety of people including families. There was no stove top as I do use a microwave.

I travel as a single - doing trips on my own. Since the local bus company offers a 3 or 7 day tourist pass and there is als a train pass one is likely to visit places. The breakfast served after 8.30 is rather late to conform with some departures. The hostel offers prepacked breakfast/ beverage machine. But the kitchen was sometimes closed even after the indicated 8.00 and provisions in the fridge thus inaccessible. In October with shortening day please serve breakfast at 8.00.
