“The hostel to go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

When I booked my trip to The Algarve I didn't know exactly where to go. I saw The Good Feeling Hostel online but it put me off that it wasn't by the beach. Once I arrived on Sagres I realised that the majority of the hostels/surf camps are not near the beaches where you wanna surf anyway. Also, when some of the other surf camps charge you money to take you to the beach, at the Good Feeling they do it for free. However, the important thing, is how welcoming I felt in this place! The staff are totally amazing! The vibe and atmosphere in the hostel is unbelievable. I have never been in a hostel like this one. I'm actually coming back again at the end of this month. Definitely the place to go!

If you're looking for a perfect relaxation, go here!! This was something else than allllll of the other hostels I've been to. The friendly mood was set right after we parked our car at the lot and that didn't change until we (unfortunately already) left the next day.... If we would've gotten more time, we would've certainly stayed here a longer time. Chill people, nothing to worry about, get some surfing if you're bored, cooking is done for the guests, little parties at night, hammocks outside of the building and. so. on. This was great and I hope to come back here :)

Room Tip: My girlfriend and me stayed in the back of the garden, in one of the newly built private dorms. Thos...

Perfectly situated in the middle of nowhere yet close enough to Sagres and Lagos to reach those places with the bus that passes through fairly often. This rustic little spot is not short of friendly staff, beautiful scenery, good vibes and hammocks! I felt so welcome that I actually extended my stay. There is always someone going for a surf so be nice and you can get a lift to the beach no problem. Dinner is usually a communal meal and lends to the family-like vibe of the place. The guys are very helpful and go out of their way to make sure you are sorted.

Sagres is not yet as touristic as the rest of Algarve, so if you're looking for some quite surfing time or just passing through, you can spend couple of night here.
PRO: it's a hostel, free working wifi
CON: it's a hostel, you need a car to get there and around

Ola and thanks for your review.
We're happy that you enjoyed the time in Sagres away from the 'typical tourist areas' and appreciated the quiet nature of the area.
We can't disagree that our accommodation is a hostel - it's in the name ;) but we like to think that the service we offer is much more than a basic hostel; with many extra opportunities for our guests and a unique atmosphere of relaxation and fun - this most of our visitors will agree!

We recommend to people who stay for an extended period that if they want to travel further that they hire a car (really cheap deals are available all year round) or they can rent one of our scooters.
The public transport is good from our central location, with the bus stop just outside the door, and we also have our free beach transfer service every day.
Perhaps we improved many of the facilities since your stay with us and you'll enjoy more if you come again. We look forward to welcoming you if you do!

Best wishes to you and safe travels

Very good place with amazing people, very good rooms, very good food and fantastic beaches near! You have a lot of things to do in that place, with the fantastic weather in Algarve. You can go to the beaches and surf, get a paddleboard and go on a trip in the coast, have surf classes or visit the fantastic coastline.
