Liked: The hostel was about 10 minutes away from the airport, so it was very easy to get there. The Double-room was cozy and clean and we had a little terrace for our own. We just stayed 2 nights but we had a lot of fun. Especially Ricardo and the rest of the staff are very helpful and friendly (and we don't say it only because of the free beer we've got ;-)). In fact, we still owe you some "ositos de oro", so we'll definitely visit you again! Saúde!

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: The staff were super friendly and helpful. Ricardo is a local and knows his city inside out. The staff also get take-aways frequently and will invite guests for a beer - and it is a genuine invite, not an organised pub crawl that you pay loads for. The beds are comfty, it´s not too boistrous and it´s literally 30secs walk from Faro train station.

Disliked: The kitchen was being renovated, but that wasn’t the staffs fault. They had alternative provisions and it will be even better for 2014.

Liked: First impression was that it was very clean, tidy and comfortable. Then I met the staff, and they were absolutely fantastic! So friendly and helpful and accommodating. Every night there was a home-made dinner, tasty Portuguese dishes, which made such a great atmosphere to get to know everyone. Was honestly the best hostel Ive stayed in!

Disliked: Absolutely nothing, would definately stay again

Liked: I stayed here July 7-12. I have only positive things to say about this hostel. Extremely helpful staff that have vast knowledge of the area, also speak English, walk the extra mile to satisfy ones needs. They also offer a free breakfast as well as excellent and cheap dinner. You can't eat better for a cheaper price (or even close) in Faro. Great value for money.

Liked: Lovely friendly staff, very clean and not too much of a loud party hostel. Nice free breakfast included was an added bonus!

Disliked: There was no air conditioning in the rooms (although they did provide fans) so it was very hot at night especially on the top bunks.

Liked: Perfect place to stay if you have to catch an early flight or train the next day as it is very quite and only a minute walk to the train station. The staff is very friendly and cares a lot about the guests.

Disliked: Just have in mind that the kitchen only has a microwave and there are no lockers in the rooms.

Liked: Everyone at Hostel33 is helpful, friendly and eager to make your stay in Faro one to remember. They know Faro and the rest of the Algarve in and out and will tell you exactly what to visit to make the most of your stay. This personal touch, combined with an excellent location, beautiful and clean (bath)rooms make this hostel a great choice for any kind of traveler. The kitchen and terrace are small but cosy and I've met some really nice people there. Ricardo also likes to occasionally treat his guests to some good wine or local fruits and what better way than to spend time together enjoying all the good things Portugal has to offer.

Disliked: When I stayed here, the kitchen equipment was basic, but this had more to do with the recent opening of the hostel. The staff listens to the needs of their guests and by the time I left, there where extra pots, pans and even an extra refrigerator. Every problem is immediately taken care of, so there is little to dislike about that.
