    I like a lot big common rooms. There is a bar, and many possibilities a play the games. Staff here is very nice and friendly as well. They offer to possibilities a print the ticket for a plane. You may have get as much information You can about Faro and Portugal. You can make new friends here. It is like little Paradise island in Faro.

    May be would expect more on the breakfast and if it's possible, more type of drinks in the bar. Would love to have more people around, if You traveling alone. Some time was melancholic and sad there.

    I would like to thank that the Penguin hostel exists! Very cheap with abundant breakfast, very clean, very basic and perfect location. Thank you to the yoga nieces from California for their hospitality and friendliness, as well. The info about ayuraska was extremely interested for me and I' am sorry that in the morning /today, I mean/ I did not have time to wash my dishes and say good-bye to the blond young lady, but I had to run to catch the bus to the Faro airport / in which I suceeded with one second accuracy!/ So, one of the best hostels I have been to, I highly recommend to each visitor of beautiful Faro

    I loved my time in this hostel! You could use some free stuff to cook, like rice or pasta. Plus, right there by the hostel is a big supermarket. The people there were soo lovely, there was always someone hanging out to chat with. I loved the relaxed vibe as a whole. Wish I could have stayed longer!
