6/10 Good

I am fully vaccinated with Pfizer from the UK with the relevant documentation, but the property refused to let me check in with this and insisted they accept the EU vaccination passports only. I had to show proof of a negative lateral flow test to be allowed to stay here. I was lucky in that I had arrived in Portugal that same day, so had one, however considering the Portuguese Government accept UK vaccination certificates, it's disappointing that this property won't. Had a booked to stay later in my trip, I would have been unable to check in. This information on requiring the negative lateral flow test and non-acceptance of UK administered vaccines was not available on my booking information at all, which was fully paid prior to arrival

A problem for non smoking guests.
It is allowed to smoke inside the building for visitors in every patio and balcony. The wind blows the smoke into the building into the halls. Wherever you walk inside the building you smell cigarettes and lots of people are smoking cigarettes in the patio. I can not visit the cute cosy patio to relax there, for this disgusting unhealthy stinking smoking reason. and walking in the hall smelling cigarettes everywhere, is also a problem for me. Smoking people everywhere in the patio who are refusing to go out to the street for their smoking habit and problem. If you try to avoid smoking places, than this hostel should not be booked. Which is a shame, because the hostel and location is super beautiful. I just don't like to stay in places where smoking is allowed. Will for this reason not book here again, and want to inform others about this issue. Let this be a warning for other non smoking guests. My visit was on 2 Nov 2020. they might change policy on this later, and than I might consider to come back on my next visit, But for now it is on my black list. Very sorry.

4* Hostel
Close to city centre and marina. Easy to find. About 16 minutes drive frome airport, 8-10€ taxi price. Rooms are comfortable all clean. Staff working well. Only problem is shower: thermoregulator no works at all, you get cold or 10 seconds 48 degrees water.
