Liked: This is an amazing hostel! Rooms are clean and spacious and bathrooms are clean and modern. There are great indoor and outdoor entertaining areas, cheapskate drinks (they have their own beer tap!) and delicious food on offer every night.

Disliked: The additional services were quite expensive. It was 10 euro to hire a bike for the day and dinners were an average of 7 euro.

I liked that they had all the timetables of any buses or boats you could possibly want to catch posted on one of the walls. Made it really easy to make plans

Liked: The friendly staff.

Disliked: Found a dead bedbug in my room. A lot of dust in corners and edges. The rooms and beds do not seem to be build by professionals. Loads of small crevices with dust and dirt. The atmosphere seemed nice but I don't know if it is really necessary to have people play guitar and try to sing till 1 AM.

Liked: I liked everything from this place. This is not the place where people are just going to sleep, all people are getting to know each other, going out at the night or going to the beaches. Every person of this hostel has a f““ great attitude!! The staff become you friend, you will get to know every one of them. Saturday was crazy with food, sangria and a cool reggae band. I only regret not having stayed more days there. I would just suggest to build some lockers in the rooms.

Disliked: Juan left no negative feedback.

Liked: The more time I spent at Casa d’Alagoa, the harder it became to leave. I feel that in my five nights at this cosy and quintessentially Portuguese abode, I have met some of the most inspiring, open and friendly people I could ever imagine - and I’m not just talking about the amazing staff who grace this place. Read my full review from my time there, here - http://euro.wesleyyoung.co.uk/post/52405140939/casa-dalagoa-faro-hostel-review-the-more

Disliked: Wi-Fi a little tempermental in the evening when everyone is online. Other than that, an amazing homely hostel.

11 June 2013 TAMARA would recommend this property

Liked: The staff is so friendly that at some point you forgot they work there; it's very nice that they have dinner with the guests. It's the perfect place to know other backpackers, at night the spot to hangout does not disturb the others (who prefer to sleep earlier); music is cool, also wi-fi. The hostel has a lot of caracter.

Disliked: Just once I asked at the staff if there was a problem with the hot water because I wanted to take a shower and it was very cold. They didn't even move to go and checked it, I think it was too early. But it's their job to go and at least pretend they care about the guests, and maybe go and see what is it. But as I said it was just once.
