Liked: The staff at the Faro Youth hostel were very nice and helpful. The breakfast was good and the tables and chairs outside was a good place to relax.

Disliked: Kitchen was a bit cramped and you have to take a bus to the nice beaches.

Liked: Staff was very helpful and they made me take away breakfast when I was leaving early in the morning. There are nice terraces and lounge areas to hang out. Stayed only one night so did not have chance to explore much. Location is quiet.

Disliked: It is a bit far from public transport, bus and train station, although 10/15 min walk is ok.

Liked: Excellent value for money, sunny with plenty of windows. Recently decorated, and clean (I read in other reviews that the decor was poor and it was not clean, obviously it has improved because I am personally a bit of a hygiene freak and I was satisfied). The bottom beds were great. There was also a thicker blanket which would be ideal in winter.

Disliked: It wasn't a problem because the hostel was not fully booked at the time, but the kitchen is small and has only two very small gas rings. I must say this didn't cause any problems for me personally, but this may cause problems if the hostel was full to capacity. Also, the top bunks were a little unsafe for those who toss and turn at night!

Liked: We loved the balcony - it was seriously the nicest part of the hostel. For the money it is hard to get a nicer place but it was bearable. It is not the cleanest but most of the staff is really nice. Just know that you won't be staying in a five start hostel - it is really the basics: a bed, bathroom and in the morning you get a breakfast which is alright.

Disliked: It gets really hot in the rooms and there's no fans which can be a problem. Also, there's peacocks that sound like cats - which we found both hilarious and annoying when we were trying to sleep. I recommend ear plugs. Also, the lockers are not exactly reliable so just be aware of that as they are not in the room but located outside. The hostel is somewhat on the outskirts without being too far away from the city center. However, it is kind of unnerving walking back at night because it can be pretty lonely and there's dark alleys involved. Also, there was blood in some of the sheets. Probably from bug bites because there were a lot of bugs due to the humid climate - we lived through it but it was not pleasant.

Liked: It's a Youth Hostel so don't expect anything special. Good for one night.

Disliked: Old and not very clean inside. Beds in dorm looks like having 20+ years.

Disliked: the direction was very confusing. it was quite hard to find out the hostel.the toilets are far from the room. even you have to cross common room/ tv room to go to the toilet. it was not confortable to go toilets in little clothes.the breakfast is very basic and had no options.
