My wife and I (in our 30's) just departed this great establishment and we wish we could have stayed longer. The hosts were amazingly friendly, informative and went above and beyond to welcome us and make us comfortable. They prepared a special BBQ for all the guests the night we arrived. All authentic portuguese cooking and drink! sooooo good. The... More

I spent a total of 3 months backpacking through europe and this was easily my favourite hostel to stay at, initially I booked 3 nights and ended up staying for around 2 weeks. Found it hard to leave due to the staff being so friendly and the hostel itself having such a good vibe. It is located in town so... More

Clean nicely decorated rooms. Great location to town and restaurants. Loved the surfer yard with bar and great hangout areas! Hosts were so friendly and helpful! We had a car and parking was free and easy on the street. The town of Peniche is an easy kick off point not far from Lisbon.

We only stayed here for one night but the friendly welcoming of the kind owner, the charming character of the structure and the great vibe you can sense with the staff, mostly surfers from all around the world, made us wish we could stay longer.

I stayed for two nights at geekco and it felt really like home. As a solo traveler you don't feel lonely at all. The staff is very helpful and treats you more like a friend than a guest. They even dried my wet clothes i brought from another place and lend me a hair dryer for free. The living room... More

I have nothing against the hostel - it was clean, the ambient was good and the staff very nice. We even got a "welcome beer". BUT if I knew now, I would have chosen something in the Baleal area (not in Peniche itself), around 5 km. to the north, where the real fun is: beaches, restaurants, bars, surf schools... And...
