If you're going to Ericeira, stay here. This hostel is really cool, with a relaxed atmosphere of young people. We had a great time. The location is great as well. Close to the beach and in the city center.

I stayed here for a couple of weeks and I had such a great time. Owner and the staff were super friendly..rooms are spacious and clean, and the garden is beautiful. It's located at the entrance of the town, so basically you can walk to the town and the beaches easily, and the supermarkets(the other side) are in walking distance.... More

The place itself was really spacious and had a great atmosphere with friendly guests and an awesome garden and terrace to relax in and really nice rooms. He also had a couple of... More

We decided to go to Ericeira at the last minute and booked this place through booking.com. Bruno immediately sent me a text messages asking us when we'd arrive, he was there when we arrive and he gave us good advices. The space is very interesting, probably very charming in the summer, as there is also a garden. The reason why... More

I stayed at Amar with a few friends for a whole week during oct2013. Because of the low season, our party of 4 were given a dorm for 7 just for ourselves, with our own bathroom. The dorm was very clean, simple yet nice. The staff was very helpful and inviting. Even the cleaning ladies were happy and cheerful. Renting... More

Got everything you need. Clean, relaxed, beautiful in a perfekt spot, close to everything. Its very lovable and charming. I can go there again anytime. If you go there for the first time its perfect because the bus from Lissabon stops just outside. The oldtown centre is just like three blocks away.

We stayed for 11nights in double room with private bathroom. Room was very nice and cozy, good price to comfort ratio. Perfect location near bus stop, 200 meters form center of Ericeira. Only downside is the ongoing construction opposite the hostel. Every day we were gently woke up by construction machine beeping. Also the card lock to our room was... More

We stayed two nights in a great double room. The room is very spacious and nicely decorated. There was a parking possibility just next to the entrance. The whole house was renovated in a great way so that the portugese style was still there. nice garden to hang out with the other guests. Breakfast could have some more things to... More

Believe it or not, but Amar is nicer than on the pictures! The garden is big, with plenty of green space and a big terrace. Perfect for yoga! :) There is an unbeatable, homely, friendly vibe to the place, and it's all because of the great people who work there! This is a true surfer's place. I'm a light sleeper,... More
