Nice hostel located a 20min walk to the old town centre. parking space in front is available, the cliffs are right in front of the house, but surfing there needs some experience because of the rocky coast. rooms, kitchen and living room are pretty and clean. you can rent boards und wetsuits right at the hostel, if i remember right...

The views of the hostel are breath-taking, as good as any hotel overlooking the crashing surf. As soon as you get near your room you can hear the waves, its very cool. Its also impeccably clean and the hosts go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We had a brilliant time here and will definitely be back

The 10 bed-dorm is really big and nice, altough the showers aren't perfectly clean. The living room is very comfy and there is a balcony with a beautiful seaview! The hostel is central and everything is in walkable distance. I would go and stay at the Blue Buddha again! The staff is nice and welcoming and they do everything to... More

We had a great week in Ericeira staying at the Blue Buddha. Miguel and Lucia are lovely hosts and create a really friendly atmosphere. They helped us sort transfers, surfing, SUP and even gave us a lift to yoga at Omassim. The surf school they work with (Ericeira Local) is really, really good. We paid a little extra for a... More

When you are here, it feels like the nicest place on earth. Laid-back and relaxed, ocean-soaked atmosphere of it makes you feel at home. It is more of a beach house, then a hostel - the hosts have truly succeeded 100% with the concept of Home away from home. Ocean-front balconies, big luminous living room, nice spacious rooms - all...

Wow, what to say about Blue Buddha? This is probably the coolest hostel experience we´ve had in a long long time. As another reviewer said here, it is more like staying in your friend´s amazing summer house than a hostel, its super clean and the views are really probably the best in Ericeira. It really is amazing to pay 25... More

I recently spent 2 weeks staying in this hostel and loved it. I spent a week with my sister in a private room, and then had a week on my own in a dorm room. The hostel is a perfect place to stay for comfort and location. It felt more like you were in someone's house rather than a hostel.... More

Was here three years ago and my impression is that it is still very good. Plenty of restaurants very near-by. Great view of the ocean and the sound of the waves will accompany your sleep. We stayed in the 10 bed dorm (wife and 12-y old) which worked fine. Recommended beaches: Foz do Lizandro and St Juliaõ , both to... More

This is a 3 story house that faces the ocean. From my bed on the first floor, I could see the ocean. The sunsets from the second floor balcony were stunning and the guests I encountered we're fun and friendly. We joined the original Blue Buddha staff & guests for dinner and dancing.. A very fun night was had by... More

My friends and I were completely taken aback when entering through the small court yard, to see the amazing sea view from the rooms of the hostel. Great beaches and dedicated surf instructors. We would not hesitate to return. The hostel owners are full of energy and love to get involved if your not sure where to go for a... More
