Company info

The Well’Come! Was born in 2016, but the adventure of this place starts before that date. The Algarve hostel was the first Hostel in Faro in 2008 and to us in 2014. It also opens the door to the world of backpackers, books exchange, tips, stories and a trip around the world without leaving the sofa. Here we get to share experiences, interact with different people, culture and learn new languages. Throughout the years we have been growing and finding new ways to Well’Come! you to Faro. Today we have options for all the travelers, since a low-cost bed in Downtown to amazing apartments inside the Oldtown. We also grew in staff, building a multicultural and amazing environment that makes the job easier and edifying. Here, we gather a warm welcome, sympathy and an amazing team who is excited to have travelers with us and say a special Well’Come! to all the guests
