Stayed 3 nights from 20/4/15 and then 20/4/15. Booking via Hotelopia had not reached hotel and no room was immediately available. Owner Joao Paulo spent upwards of 45 minutes trying to find a suitable local alternative without success. Luckily a late cancellation saved the day. The helpfulness and hospitality displayed by Joao Paulo, who had nothing obvious to gain from...

Amazing room, got it dead cheap, really quiet, 247 reception, great Free Wifi reception, good location, toilet could have been a little more clean as the shower didn't work so had to use Tap! Shops and Cafes were also nearby as Faro it self is not a big City, if u want a quiet break in a fishing Village? Faro...

Staff was friendly and room was okay. We were kind of outside of the main building and on the balcony. It was like a portable family 3-4 persons room they added in afterwards. It was basic but good enough for a night. We had an early flight anyways. Wifi did not work! It was a bit better in the lobby...

I stayed at the guesthouse for 13 nights (in two separate occasions. The room was very nice (room 4) with AC (good in June), a TV, also the bathroom was smal but very confortable. Room was cleaned daily. The only caveat was that, for me, the bed was kind of hard. You also have WiFi on the room. The guesthouse...

The guest house is certainly worth the price. The steep staircase leads to the narrow quirky painted corridor with lots of rooms. There is a place on the roof to eat and walk. We had a room for three on the roof for price for two.

The room was not massive but we are young travellers and wanted something central, easy, clean and cheap. This ticked all the boxes. The room came with an ensuite shower, which was really tiny and I did keep banging my elbows as I am a klutz, but it was clean and towels were changed daily. The room was tidied daily...

It is a very good value for the money. Hot water for showers, a clean and private bathroom. The staff was polite, but not over and above. The area near the hostel seemed rather dodgy so I didn't feel safe, but that may be more of a reflection of the city rather than the hostel. The thing that bothered me...

We spent 2 nights there. It's a very quiet neighbourhood and close to everything: train and bus station, ferry, shops, bars, restaurants etc. We felt pretty safe there because you must ring to enter the hostel, so you receive a key only for your room.

We spent only one night at Guest House Sao Filipe, but we were positively surprised. Everything was very clean and neat. The room was basic but very cosy, with a TV, air conditioning and a very nice, large bathroom. The street was quiet so we had a very good rest. The lady at the reception was very friendly and helpful,...

“Ask for the rooms inside the hostel. We had a room for 3 and it was in the back yard. The hostel looks very authentic on the inside. The rooms from inside are for 2 people.”

“I imagine the rooms in the hotel itself (as opposed to on the roof) are a bit quieter and more 'traditional'.”
