Brilliant Hostel just a 15 minute walk into town. Friendly staff and clean spacious rooms. Had a great vibe and partied hard as a hostel. Staff worked to include everyone in different events are showed us the top places around the city. Would definitely return.

Great place! Staff very welcoming and fun, showed us the sights and night life of Lagos! Hostel very spacious, can easily chill out by yourself or have a good time with others. Highly recommended to solo or group travellers. Cheers Wendy, Kathryn and Stacey.

It was mostly for the surf experience that my friend and I choose this hostel, but we found so much more than that on our stay. The people working there were absolutely amazing, the rooms were clean, the pool was perfect, the atmosphere was friendly. The breakfast was by far the best we had on our trip, jeez, they cook...

The only thing I could fault with this place is the location - it's about 10 minutes walk from the old town. Other than that there is nothing to fault. This place is like a beach house not a hostel. Wendy and the other staff are extremely friendly, will take you out for dinner and pub crawls or show you... More

It was a nice hostel, stayed there for 6 nights. I came for the surf camp that was incredible. If you go there, you need to take at least one surf lesson, you wont regret it! Anyways, the breakfast are, by far, the best ones I had in all the hostel i visited (and it's free!). You can also make... More

Stayed there on my summer holidays last year and I am seriously considering coming back this year. The place is lovely, the people are amazing, really great atmosphere. It was my first solo trip, and I felt like I knew everyone for ages. Very welcoming people. It is really close to the beach, and you can also book suff classes... More

I had an amazing time on my trip to Portugal this June. It was my first time ever. I went with some friends, two who had previously stayed at the Surf Hostel and raved about it. After my stay I completedly agree! The place was great, clean, well laid out for time alone and with the group. It felt like... More

Where to begin ... staying at Algarve Surf Hostel was one of the best experiences I've ever had traveling. When we arrived, I immediately felt a part of the "surf family" that lives there. The staff and instructors were unbelievably welcoming. Whether it was cuddling up and watching movies on the couch with everyone, or going out and enjoying the... More

I was a bit nervous that my first amazing experience at Algarve Surf Hostel couldn't be repeated, but just like last year the staff was amazing, the house was clean, the BBQ and boat cruise were awesome and I was so incredibly sad to give a round of goodbye hugs and leave (twice as after my first round of goodbyes...

Whilst the sleeping accommodation is basic, the staff and the activities and the food more than compensate. We were a group of 4 and had a blast, enjoying the kayak tour and surfing trips the hostel catered for, and whilst they were slightly pricey (20 and 50 euros respectively), they were good value for entertainment and what they included.
