    Very comfortable and clean room with a lovely balcony (perfect for morning yoga, if that's your thing). Shower in the shared bathroom was great and the bathroom itself was very clean. The host was lovely and gave us some excellent recommendations, such as the free walking tours and boat tours of neighbouring islands. We also enjoyed studying in the courtyard in the sun.

    Nothing actually, would like to stay again!

    Really nice guesthouse with a friendly owner. Directly in the centre of the old town of Faro. I can highly recommend to stay here while in Faro.

    The room had a small balcony with a private view over the rooftops of the town. Decent size room and unlike so many shared bathrooms in hostels and guesthouses these were always clean. The staff are very kind and always available if you have any questions or need something. Next to the marina, it’s a wonderful location close to everything.

    A few times some of the guests were noisy, banging doors loudly like they were at home, and fighting, but that has nothing to do with the guesthouse and more to do with the ignorance of their guests.

    The location

    All good apart for the size of the room. A bit too small for two people

    The location was excellent about 5 minutes from everywhere you would wish to be. Close to a lively square that had a number of OK restaurants and not far from the main square that had a very good supermarket and commercial centre. The old Town and Marina were less than a 10 minute stroll away as was the bus and train Station. Very good value for money for accommodation of this type. My room was good for 1 person and clean.

    Don't like shared bathrooms but I knew I would have one. The shared kitchen felt dirty but I guess that is more down to the other guests rather than the property.
