Read other reviews that were disappointed. That was not our experience. The staff has been very helpful, the place is kept very clean. It definitely is not a hostel & they are very clear about that in their explanation of what they offer. There is no kitchen for cooking and they do not allow food on the property unless purchased...

I've been traveling for 8 months already on this current trip and have also stayed at many other hotels and hostels while traveling the world in the past years, however I have never felt so unwelcome and been treated so badly as we did at Ocean View. Firstly when we arrived after 24 hrs of traveling we were made to...

After reading the reviews it seems we really lucked out. We stayed three nights here and always had very friendly encounters with the staff, although we never dealt with the owner. The welcome sangria was a nice touch. Our room was huge with a double bed and two singles and a massive ensuite for just two of us. I can't...

We booked one day before arrival because of an attractive price of 75€ per night to visit the place around. The personnal (Not the boss, was friendly) But, neither Algarve, a really high demand in summer or a late booking are reasons at ALL to manage such prices, here is why: -The hotel has no view on the sea as...

The room felt like prison with rules of what you can not do posted on the wall. Lots of rules. No kitchen (despite it being listed in the ad and being posted on the wall that guests can use it after 9 p.m,, no use of frig, no eating your own food, nor hand washing clothes. Lots of up charges....

A friendly bed and breakfast outlet. We had a comfortable room with a very large ensuite. A small but pleasant pool area. There are 2 roof terraces and a good common lounge area. The continental breakfast was excellent. Staff very friendly and helpful. In all, good value for budget accommodation.

We stayed at the Ocean View hostel in May 2016 and we were very satisfied. The hostel was clean, close to a nice family beach (Praia Porto de Mós), and not so fair from the city center (20 Minutes). We did everything by walking. It is true that it has many rules – you are not allowed to wash your...
