“Great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

Great atmosphere and chilled. Jose the owner makes sure you feel at home and have a good time. Great location by the beach and close to lisbon too for a visit. Also love a hostel dog! Thanks for a great stay

I stayed at Carcavelos Surf Hostel for two weeks and if you are looking for nice surf, nice people and the most familiar hostel ever is this the one.

The owner of the hostel, Jose, is the most relaxed person I've met. He's always nice to the guests and always have something to do or recommend to guests.

I would recommend this hostel for everyone, even non-surfers because the atmosphere is fantastic and it feels like visiting an old friend.

The Carcavelos surf hostal is a perfect place to stay, if you would like to be near the beach for surfing (it's about 7 minutes to walk) or just relaxing. in just a few minutes you are at the train station to go to lisbon (it takes max.25 minutes). Besides these benefits the atmoshere in the house is great. it was like being at home. jose and the stuff is super easy going, friendly and it takes no time to feel home. The owner has a dog, he is really cool and funny. Loved it there! And by the way: the breakfast was very good as well!

This place is seriously great. I stayed here for about 3 nights, looking for a nice place to surf on Carcavelos beach. Even though the waves were small at the time, the stay was still great. The first night Jose had a big party/BBQ and made me feel right at home. The place is very cozy (like a house more than a hostel) and you feel right really comfortable. No complaints at all. Easy walk to the beach, easy train into the city, and also close to Cascais beach also.

Great place for really nice price. Lots of young, interesting people, very polite and proffesional service. Hostel is neat and tidy. I also liked two little dogs and guinea pigs in the garden :)
Thank you!

Room Tip: Rooms for 8 people are quite tiny, but for only-sleeping purpose are great :)

Homely, inviting and a lot of fun! We had a great time on holiday here and Jose was a fantastic host - he even cooked us snails one night. Definitely worth a visit for anyone thinking about visiting Portugal.

To be at Carcavelos Surf Hostel is like being in a surf family. Always nice people there, nice accomodations, free breakfast, lot of activities, close to the train station so you can get to Lisbon or Cascais really easy!

Special mention to the owner, José, always care about the guests and help u with anything you may need!
