Great house, great managers, great place!
U just surf the whole day on the beach just beside the house and at the evening u just go and share your daily experience with friends in the bar which is literally only a few steps from the Captain´s house (yet the house is safe from any noise!).
My best recommendations of this property! Just go and get the most of Baleal place! Here u get it all!
ENJOY!

For all of you guys who are planing to come to Peniche: "There´s nothing like Captain´s Log House in the whole Universe!" :) The people taking care about this unique place bring the hospitality to another level. I love it there and I know I´m not the only one! Can´t wait till that day, when I meet all of them again, stay barefoot on the grassy garden with wet surfboard in my hand, have a bbq in the evening and go sleep into sweet bedlinen. Can´t wait till that day when I have that awesome breakfast and enjoy Captain´s athmosphere! Five million stars house, stuff and landlords!

Room Tip: Red room is the best one!

What an amazing place with such a warm welcoming. I got very special feelings about the CL house and the stuff. All the decorations shows up the owners attitude to provide hostel different way. Thats what U might feel from the firstview. What folows just melts down your last worries. Tasty breakfast as a start of the day .Unless U went surf early morning. The closest beach break is just few steps under the house:). Very comfortible indeed. Every days smile from the stuff.Good advice at right time if you need and special approach for each guest makes U feel UR at home or visiting friends there. I can recommend Captains Log House to all sorts of people. See you there. Jan Shafa

I spent a lot of time in Captain´s Log House and need to say that this house has a wonderful unique atmosphere! I feel like at home there. I love the paintings, colors and creative design inside the house. I really appreciate what the stuff of CLH do for people and their comfort. Ze, Sisco and Sabina are very good persons and I am happy to know them. The most important is that they make this bussiness with a heart and everybody must feel it! Thanx for nice time in Portugal and I´m looking to forward see Baleal again. For me it is the biggest relaxations to sit on the garden and listen to ocean!

Room Tip: All rooms are very nice, clean, with comfortable beds and amazing paintings.

Captain's Log House is just an awesome hostel. The people who are working there are so friendly and create the best Breakfast I've ever got and much better than in any other hostel I've ever been. The hostel has a great living room where you can relax, listen to some musik or just sit down and watch tv. Alll in all the first place to go if you go to Baleal!

Had an amazing stay at Captains and will be back for sure! We showed up not having a room, and we got an awesome room within minutes! The staff were super friendly and did everything to make our stay as good as possible (you might even catch them in the surf)...The breakfast was amazing, especially after a few hours in the water...definately a highlight. The rooms were clean and comfortable with enough room to fit any amount of luggage, and the facilities (kitchen, bathrooms etc) were perfect. I'm gonna miss the sound of Mikaela's voice asking for "Hot milk, coffee, tea?" in the morning but will be back soon hopefully. Would definately recommend Captains as we stayed in 3 hostels in Peniche and this was by far the best!

The Hostel looks very good from the inside and the outside.
Everything is well organized and the staff is super friendly and willing to help you in anyway.

if you are a surfer then you should definitely visit this place in the garage you can place your board and hang your westuite to dry and outside is enough room to clean you wetsuits.

Every morning you can join the breakfast and get yourself some nice fried egg or pancake.

Definitely stay here when your in peniche!


Thanks Ze ,Mikela & Sabina for the good times and relaxt atmosphere, i definitely come back!
