I'd been surfing the Internet for quite awhile, until I stumbled upon Captain's Log House on Trip Advisor. The place pulled me in like a magnet the moment I saw it! I love the quirkiness of Captain's - the fact that the house is a 3D version of the Corto Maltese graphic novels. From the day that we've arrived, we've... More

A little while ago we, a family of three with a 15 yr old son, decided to have a May vacation break on Portugal's Atlantic coast, one that would please our boy and involve a lot of surfing. Possibly some high level surf tuition too. Since I am quite busy at work (who's not these days...??) I let the Mrs.... More

I personally had an amazing time at Captains Log. The staff are super helpful, upbeat and friendly. The guests that tend to gravitate towards Captains are also like its staff. Both made me feel welcome and included. The breakfast was great and they even leave bread and extras out for guests who want to make a sandwich for lunch! Free... More

It's definitely my favourite in Peniche. The concept is great, the house is lovely... everything is clean, breakfast is delicious, staff is sooooo nice and always keen to help. The location is super convenient and the price is fair. I ve been there before and certainly will go back.

I and a friend have been to the Captain's in March 2015 for our annual surf trip to Peniche, and it has been amazing. Zé and Sab's probably are the most postitive and welcoming Persons I've met in a long time. They showed us the best places to eat, told us a lot about the country and even cooked for... More

I stayed at Captain's just one night unfortunatly... It was really nice. I met Zé and Sabina when I arrived and they took me to her friend's house for a dinner, it was perfect! Zé and Sabina are so friendly and good vibe people and the room and all the house was very clean, so I wish I could stay... More

Captain's Log House is a good choice for large groups of people who went to Peniche for surfing. This hostel offers rather small rooms for 2 – 4 people, I believe, with own bathroom. In the room, I missed some place to sit and work or put some things. I had to sit in the wardrobe instead. Also, I like... More

Captains log house is a fantastic place to stay and relax in Paniche! I've never stayed at a hostel with such a nice, warm, thoughtful, and easy going staff. I think I had a new type of homemade cake every night I stayed. The breakfast was amazing and the location is perfect, right on the cliffs overlooking great waves! It... More
