I went backpacking through Spain and Portugal and Lagos was one of my first stops. Mama is the owner of the Rising Cock and she runs the entire place. She was very welcoming, hospitable, and sweet. The hostel was clean and well organized. I was in a room with 2 bunk beds, and it never felt crowded. Their backyard area and living room is always bustling with a young crowd and the party never stops. The location is amazing as it's only a 2 minute walk to the beach and is on a street with tons of restaurants. It's a little hard to find in the beginning, but once you find your bearings, it's a prime location. Mama made crepes every morning which were heavenly! She encouraged us to buy some fruit and she would add it into the crepes for us. It felt like a home away from home. I was there when it was the Rising Cock's anniversary, so they threw a huge party and gave out unlimited alcohol and food. It was one of the best times I've ever had. I had such a great time, that I cut out other destinations to stay longer!
