Absolutely Great Value

It is a great value for the price. Apartment style hotel for hostel price. Its not the nicest place ever and our room didn't have air conditioning but we expected a lot worse, and maybe that's why we were surprised. We got a living room/kitchen with full appliances and dishes and a bedroom for 25 euro a person. It is a little hard to find though. There is a sign as you go up the hill of Rua de Herculano that says "Apartamentos Turisticos" It is hidden behind a stop sign a little bit, right across from the Mitoo Bar. Turn there and head down to the end of the street on the left to find the hotel office. Other than that it was such a great value for the money. About 15-20 minute walk to the beach, and about 10 minutes to the crazy night life scene.

Great location, very clean but needs upgrading

The two best things about this hotel are its location (5 mins walk to the centre of things but far enough away to be totally quiet) and the cleanliness of the rooms and the entire complex. Spotlessly clean throughout. Other than that I'm afraid the whole place is in dire need of upgrade and is old fashioned and shabby. No air conditioning wasn't a problem for us in September but any earlier in the season and I wouldn't dream of staying somewhere with no air con. I would recommend if you are on a tight budget for sure.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Try to steer clear of the eateries along the strip. If you go off the beaten track you'll find some excellent local produce and very good deals.
