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

Captain's Log House is the coolest place for Portugal surf-get-away. I stayed there for a week and had so many good waves from 3 to 10 feet. Just 5 minute walk from 3 three different surfspots. Hostel was super clean, had a very nice breakfast and even pancakes for Sunday morning. Captain's crew was very friendly and helpful. A++++ Will... More

My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the Captain's Log House. The personalised service started months before when we booked and received good advice on which room would best suit us. The room we ended up in was the Red room, which suited us well, with ample space, a view and a balcony. It also had a spectacular ceiling... More

Captain's Log House is one of my favorite places where I will always come back. The place gives you a feel of home by the friendly atmosphere which is around.
