“Great hostel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

Even if I only spent two nights there I already got to love this backpacker. It's perfect located just a minute walk to the beach and close to the supermarket. The People were amazing and Jose is a really cool and nice guy, it was a blast! I can't wait to get back!!

Stayed April 2014, traveled solo

We got the 5-Day Surf Lessons + 7-Day Stay package, which was amazingly well priced.
The hostel was a really chilled out place, with great people. Jose did a great job making the stay great, and ensuring that the hostel was clean and comfortable.
Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to do a beach trip in Portugal!

My friends and I got the package deal which was 7night/8days plus 5 2-hour surf lessons. The instructor was friendly, encouraging and helpful. Everyone was so friendly in the hostel, even the puppy! Jose and the staff always greeted us warmly and helped us out like finding out where to go in Lisbon or how to get to some hard to reach locations. The location of the hostel was great. Couple of minutes walk to the beach, restaurants, supermarket and train station. It was a plus that Santini's ice cream was also nearby. The place was always clean. Even though we slept on bunk beds, it didn't feel cramped. On sunny days, we could sit and relax on the balcony on the third floor or just sit in the garden and have a barbecue.
Would recommend staying there especially for a surf holiday.

Just left the hostel today and wanted to share my experience straight away! Its a great place, fantastic location, friendly and nice people, literally everything you need in a hostel! Highly recommend! Lisbon is 25 min away, beach 5 min away, train station 5 min away, and one of my best restaurant experiences just minutes away from the hostel. And the dog!!! There is a dog!!!!!
