“brand new, great low cost hostel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

This is a brand new hostel located very close to the centre of Ericeira. I've stayed in with my wife for a weekend break. The hostel is focused on younger travelers but everyone behaves quietly and the owners make us feel at home. We've stayed at a private room in the upper floor which is, in my opinion, the best option. The room look is light, the furniture is new and everything is kept very clean. The breakfast is simple but tasty. Some guests use a communal kitchen in an independent glass house located in the garden. During our stay we had a great fish dinner prepared by Mara. Bruno, the owner, is a surf addict, so you must be prepared to be challenged for a surf baptism every morning.
