It's the best private room in a hostel.
I stayed in a private room with a king bed and everything was really good except that the front desk is a bit limited to its opening hours. After they get off work and there's no one left at the desk, things might get a bit frustrating because of the people staying. Due to the acoustic of the kitchen that is very close to most of the rooms, the sound of people chatting and drinking can be delivered really loudly to your room. Apart from that, everything was really thoughtful and good. However the room was really nice. I've stayed in some private room which can't really guarantee the privacy for some reasons but this one was really nice for such a low price. I'd definitely stay there again next time I visit Albufeira.
