Stayed for 3 nights, room was clean but in general the whole place is run down and needs quite extensive modernisation, right in the old town and very close to all the bars, restaurants, cafes and shops, 5 mins from both bus and train stations and 10 mins by taxi to the airport

Booked a double room with en-suite. Upon arrival the proprietor was agitated, unfriendly and kept patting his heart. The room itself was very small and smelt damp. It was dirty with hairs on the floor and generally in a poor, tatty condition. There was no wardrobe to hang my clothes with lampshade missing and gaffa tape wrapped around kettle (which...

Spent there one night before my flight back and well it's close to the center. That's about the only good thing you can say about that place. The room was dirty, smelly and though it's fairly cheap I wouldn't say the price-performance ratio was good. Can't recommend, won't stay there again.

his guest house is in the middle of the city centre. Nice to explore the city with his nice restaurants, bars, pubs, shops and old town. It is very basic. If you choose a room with private bathroom, it will be OK for a short stay. Do not think of spending there during the day, it is really a place...

We stayed in a room for three adults. The bedding was lovely and clean. The shared bathroom was also very clean. There were basic cooking facilities available although we did not use them. The location was excellent as it was not far from the bus station.

During our big trip across Portugal in July 2016 we overslept the stop in Albufeira and we continued to Faro, thanks to our friends, that stayed in those apartments - they managed to get for us the last room (for 2ppl) just 15mins before we arrive, so in the last moment. We paid 20eur night/person. There were more rooms with...

The room we stayed was nice and bed was very comfortable. The shared bathroom is nice and clean (w didn't mind sharing it). Very cosy there and the atmosphere was just like at home. If you don't mind sharing bathroom and have a tight budget, I'd recommend it! :)

My wife and I really liked this quaint like "residencial" . The decor of this place was very Portuguese which was cool. The room was clean with a bathroom and very inexpensive. It was close to many nice restaurants, cafes and shops. I would highly recommend this place to have real Portugal experience.

We booked a room for 2 nights in two different weeks using booking.com. Upon arrival we paid for the first night. L later we were notified by booking.com that we didn't show up, so the costs of the first night were going to be booked from my creditcard as well. When we returned for the second night, a week later...

At 7.50 euros a night each, we weren't expecting much but were pleasantly surprised! We had a twin room on the ground floor - our room had windows and was nice (but not all rooms on that floor had windows, so be warned). Towels were provided and changed daily. My friend's bedsheet was not entirely clean, but this was changed...
