This place is beautiful and clean! The rooms and beds are clean, my dorm had a view on the ocean! And the common areas: living room, kitchen, terrace are very inviting, so they are a good place to hang out and meet other people from the hostel. The staff is helpful and friendly!

I spent a week at Amar in the end of May, and I had a holiday that I will never forget. Eventhough the place is a hostel, it's not the type of hostel you see many other places in the world. It's clean, tidy, has clean beds and sheets and the entire place emminates with calmness and a welcoming atmosphere!... More

I stayed in this surfers hostel with my 75 year old mother. I picked this place as Ericeira was a convenient distance from Lisbon airport. The room we stayed in was private and comfortable with view over the garden. We were by far the oldest guests here initially I felt that this might be awkward but we were made to... More

Amar is a very clean, organised and professionally run hostel.The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and as far as I witnessed all the guests leave smiling. The surf school they are partnered with is also organised and enthusiastic. I was very impressed with this. The location is wonderful if you roll down the hill you are at a cute beach... More

My 2 friends and I purchased a week long surfing package at Amar Hostels and Suites. upon arriving at the hostel we were told we had to each pay an extra 17 euros for a welcome BBQ and surfing pictures. All of this would be fine, except the fact that the BBQ was a pile of meat and some rice... More

I stayed in Amar hostels for a bit more than a week. The location is close to the centre. There is a beautifull garden. The people that work there are extremely friendly! Only thing was the kitchen. It is a big one, but a new stove would make it much better! Besides that i would totally recommend this hostel for... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Amar a lot. It's got nice & clean rooms, a beautiful garden and is located right in the heart of Ericeira. We had a rental car, but you don't necessarily need it as you can rent out bikes or scooters at the hostel to get to the surf spots and beaches nearby. The general... More

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.
