1878 Hostel

"Our inspiration, your pleasure"

The Hostel

Set in a historic landmark building in Faro, 1878 Hotel is located in the privileged downtown of the city, near several places of interest.

Built in 1878, originally named as Regular Primary School, our building is classified and in the Urban Renewed Area and its last use was as the Institution of Girls Protection.

1878 Hostel’s concept is where travelers and locals can exchange life experiences and enjoy a space in a building with a lot of life, history and soul, that reflects the best that the Algarve has to offer.

This building has all the romance of those who built it, marked by the original traces of the stonework, the balustrade and the big bow in the center of the main facade. With stone framed spans and monumental iron railings with enchanted floral motifs.

This is a space to set and stay in the history of life of those who pass by here. Matches and mismatches that happen since 1878, will continue to happen in a building that now has a renewed life.

This beautiful nineteenth century building was completely renovated and rehabilitated. We valued all the details that make the difference assuring the comfort that you want to have when you're traveling. Centrally located in downtown, you can stay and enjoy the best of what our city has to offer. We also organize city- tours so you can discover the secrets of Faro. To enjoy the night, we will promote activities so you can appreciate even more your stay & trip.

With this location you can enjoy the sun on our islands and beaches, the tours in the Ria Formosa, museums, churches and even what’s inside the old city walls. The accesses to the different means of transport are just a walk-way far.
