Stayed here at the end of the season. Great location, just a 2min walk to restaurants and shops in Ericeira. Clean, spacious rooms, great social areas and a nice terass for a sunset session. You can walk to some of the nearby surfspots takes about 10 min, but when it comes to surfing in Portugal a car is necessary so... More

This is a great hostel, I've stayed in quite a few different hostels in Ericeira and Amar was my favorite. It has a great location, awesome terrace to relax on and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

Really nice place, friendly staff and very chilled out. Great location with Ericeira's bars and restaurants just a few minutes walk toward the harbour. Only point is to avoid the surf school linked to the hostel, we took the easy option of booking lessons through them on arrival, but in hindsight the quality of tuition is much better elsewhere.

This is definitely the place to stay in Ericeira. The hostel is very well decorated and furnished with wooden floors and nice common rooms. We were 4 friends in a private room: both the room and the bath were spacious and clean. The plus is the garden and the terrace but also the bar with its breakfast. The hostel organizes... More

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
