    Felt like a private resort! It’s more like full house with kitchen, lounge, back patio opening onto the river. Great breakfast buffet is included and served every morning at 9:30-12pm. Beds are comfortable, rooms have aircon, plenty of shower and toilets. It’s across the road from the beach and 5 min walk from the bus stop into Faro town.

    Some staff at the hostel and restaurant were A bit unhelpful but staying here is definitely still worth it.

    The bedroom is spottless, comfy (other than no rail around a top bunk, complete safety hazard). There is a charging port & light for each bunk that actually work which is great. There is also shutter blinds so the room is still dark in morning. There is a lovely chill out room with large comfy sofa. The outdoor area is fabulous and theres a cool swing egg chair, very relaxing & comfy. If you are a fan of sunrise this has the absolute best view ever, its stunning. I was in faro beach last year as well, but was surprised noone else was up for it. It really is beautiful. There is a kitchen that is kept lovely & clean. The main thing for me booking here was the proximity to beach, i adore this beach, the proximity to the airport, the terrace area looking over the lake esp for sunrise.

    On the day i stayed there was a terrible smell from the showers, i mentioned it to the man on reception but he didn't seem phased. Other guests mentioned it that were there longer but said it had only started that morning. So it was minor & probably rectified by the next day. They could also have some milk for the mornings, as its more expensive than other hostels and it was €16 more a night than beach life hostel down the street. I was up to watch sunrise (best location for it) so to be able to relax with a coffee would of been amazing. I also missed my footing on the bed ladder getting down and fell very hard, there is no railing on edge of top bunk, so if you move around in your sleep its not the safest, i found this bizzare.
