I was looking for a sleep over for one night before an early flight. Low Cost Inn also goes under the name of Faro Central Guesthouse on Laterooms. Well I didn't feel safe when I approached a run down area of Faro with weird people hanging around. I had to call a person to let me in. He was happy... More

Miserable in all aspects. They show a place in the web and then send you to caves and awful rooms. They make you feel like 20 euros per person is a bargain. It's not! I can't understand what kind of image Portugal wants to sell to foreigners. Portugal is much more than this... Run away from these people and never... More

Dirty, bad security, bed bugs, no lighting, no air condition. Just find something else, really. Worst stay I've ever had. Only good thing was that we just stayed for one night.

This hostel was booked by a friend on consideration of price alone. Easily the worst hostel I have ever stayed in (in over six years of travelling). Upon check-in, me and my friends were "greeted" with a racist slur from a drunk receptionist, and shown to a windowless, nightmarish room. Avoid this place like the plague!

Must reiterate all the other issues already mentioned. Arrived and the staff denied that I had a booking. After much arguing they managed to put me in a room that was nothing like what I had booked. Staff attempted to charge me twice. 4 months later I was fraudulently charged $1000.00 euro to my credit card. This was the only... More

The 'Low Cost' lives up to it's name and was the best price we found in Faro! Bit basic, and could do with some tea/coffee facility, but clean and tidy and well placed to see the sights of Faro! 5 Minutes from the airport so very well placed!

If you like rude staff, overpriced dorms, kitchens where nothing works, ants in your bed, unclean bathrooms and generally being ripped off then this place is for you. Otherwise, DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOSTEL!  We stayed in the 20 bed dorm which is very basic as you'd expect. However, the rooms never seem to be cleaned properly, the bins... More

I'd read some terrible reviews. But if you want basic, low cost accomodation for a night or two stay here. It was a clean,cheap, friendly place to lay our heads & get a shower before & after Faro Rally. The location is superb for Faro center. Published pics are obviousy the best rooms,ours wer'nt as fancy but didnt expect them... More
