“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Ive been to the Algarve surf camp three times now and it has become my home away from home in Portugal. Ive stayed there with a group and alone and both have been great. The staff is always friendly, helpful and fun. The surf-instructors are very professional and has lots of experience. Thank you so much to Wendy, Tanya, Peggy, Ale, Junior, Jose and everyone else. You guys are great!

Travelled with a large group and stayed four days at the Surf Hostel in Sagres. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Breakfasts were fantastic and the hostel would also provide fixings for sandwiches to take with you for the day. Thanks guys for a great weekend!!

Peggy and Tanya were great! Awesome food provided, with takeaway lunch each morning and hot brekky. Always willing to give local tips and great fun!

Looking forward to coming back there again in the not too distant future,

Phil

A group of 20 of us stayed here for three nights and we had a wonderful time. There was plenty of space for everybody, Peggy made a new cake every day, getting to and from the beach where the actual surfing was taking place was easy, and the people running the camp were so nice. Was definitely tempted to "miss my flight" and stay. Highly recommend staying here.

Staff was very welcoming here, they pick you up at the bus terminal at the tourist point in Sagres. They almost bake you a welcoming treat when you come back from surfing every day, which is nice. The building is quite a bit older then the camp in Lagos, the big dorm upstairs is too cramped to my liking, you hardly have a square meter of breathing space, but all the other rooms seem fine. Showers were nice and warm, they have a cousy common room with PS3 and flatscreen. Good kitchen and some tables and BBQ outside. Biggest downside I could find were the beds, the bunk ones are quite shaky, if the one underneath you moves, you move along, but the mattresses really need to be replaced guys, you can feel the springs! The building is a bit older and less clean then the Lagos one, but therefore it has a lot of character, and I heard and sensed that a lot of people still prefer it. There's beaches on walking distance to surf. And the bar strip(the only 5 bars in town, but really nice ones) are just a 5 min walk away, supermarket as well.
All in all I had a very good time there. Right next to the hostel lies this abandoned hotel which you can enter freely, kinda spooky, but a nice tip if you're there!

The hostel is very nice, clean, with many bathrooms. I loved breakfasts with delicious banana pancakes or cakes made by Peggy, who runs the house. Sometimes there are also dinners or barbecues, and I really liked that all meals are served outdoors.
Surf leasons on the beautiful Amado beach are fun, instructors are very good and make sure that you not only learn to surf, but also have a good time.

Amazing surfcamp! Sagres is a very nice little town to stay in. A small beach, original restaurants with cheap and nice food and a little partystreet.
The surfcamp is clean and personal. Especially the staff is very nice. They are relaxed and friendly and make an amazing breakfast and barbecue. The surf lessons are definitely the best I had.
Go!
