Super cute, great staff
This place was fabulous! The room (2 singles with private bath) and hotel was ridiculously cute and the staff were incredibly accommodating. Had breakfast (coffee, juice, toast, cereal, fruit) on the sunny roof terrace and quickly washed up our dishes after, per the hotel common area policy.

Beautiful hostel building and comfortable stay
The 1878 Hostel is really beautiful and done up in a comfortable hostel experience. A towel and a locker with key are provided. There are plug points and a reading lamp at each bed. Despite the many beds in each room, the ceiling is very high so it still feels very spacious and comfortable. The bathroom is also clean and updated. The hostel puts you a few blocks from the commercial center of Faro, where there is a road of restaurants open for tourists, and a few minutes walk from Old Town. The bus station and train station are nearby and the ferry point is in Old Town. All in all, very convenient.

Highly recommend
Excellent hostel. Marianna was super helpful. Provided me with information that made my stay one I bragged about on social media. Clear directions for transportation and what to see around Faro and day trips by train.

Hostel 1878 was perfect
I loved Hostel 1878! It was perfect. Beautifully renovated building close to the Old City, bus and train stations, without being too close. All amenities such as electrical connection, locker with lock and lights for everyone in the dormitories, nice breakfast, really nice staff.
