As we were booking private room, we were assigned a room with double bed and it was connected to another room. The place is very simple, but very central. Lovely rooftop that can be accessed any time and strawberries for breakfast was just what I needed The host will give you all the help needed and is very friendly

This hostel may look a little shabby, but it certainly doesn't detract from the atmosphere of the place. We had a very warm welcome from Jorge, who picked us up from the airport, introduced us to Faro, and recommended things for us to do. On the day we checked out we were looking for a place to have an early...

Excellent stay at this hostel, beautiful vue on top of the city. Jorge will receive you with open arms, ask him for a map and he is happy to show you the good spots, restaurants, bars, parks, churches, great help. Good breakfast. Roof top. Spacy rooms. Excellent location. Close to train and bus station, taxis and boats. Great place!

We spent three nights in the hostel and in Faro, and it was a great stay. The hostel has nice rooms and a relaxing rooftop terrace. The owner Jorge is very helpful and friendly. We definitely can recommend to stay here.

Terrace is available to everyone and it's open as long as you need it so you can spend all night on the rooftop integrating with fellow hostel guest...

Arrived at night and Jorge had organised to pick us up from the airport for 10 Euros, a wise choice as there weren't any taxis around! The hostel was very quiet (but it was February!) Room was very clean and comfortable. We left early the next morning to get our train to Lagos. Would definitely stay again in the future....

We didn't book a night in that hostel, but were in struggle because we had been totally robbed out, so that we had almost nothing any more and needed to organise a lot of important things. While hastleling through the streets of faro, we ran into "FAROWAY Hostel" because we needed internet and a telephone...And we got the best welcome...

Mind you, this was our first ever stay at a hostel. We always lived at hotels. We were quite apprehensive as to how it was gonna turn out. But this place took us by surprise. It's a beautiful Portuguese house. The kitchen has a juxtaposing terrace. You'll find all sorts of foods in the kitchen. It's very well stocked all...

I had not booked anywhere to stay in Faro when I got off the train around 8pm one night, and after linking up with a fellow traveler, we started wandering around Faro in search of a hostel. FaroWay was recommended to us, and we made it there. This place has AMAZING vibes... I don't know what it is! every person...

The beds are perfect, no bunks. the kitchen with breakfast free has everything. The terrace looks over the town and is super comfy. I stayed at other hostels and have to say...
