The staff were excellent, from Bruno (the owner) to Maria and Favia (the cleaning ladies) who always had a smile and a bit of banter with you! The surf instructors were amazing and really stuck with you when out in the water. Shoutout to Nuno and Luis! My surfing has improved so much after my stay here and the facilities...

Great service, great location, very clean and very friendly and welcoming staff. Cooking facilities were perfect and it's only a few minutes walk from the beach and the supermarket. Moped rentals were really handy to get around town

Absolutely amazing hostel with outstanding staff, we went for a university surf trip and they provided great service for us. Great surf instructors and very friendly staff - I would highly recommend as this is probably the best surf hostel in the area.

We stayed here as a group of 30 people this month. We were blown away by the quality of the hostel and the kindness and patience of the staff when dealing with our demands as a large group. The rooms are spacious and clean, with large bathrooms for a hot shower after a surf. We were right in the middle...

I have been to different surf hostel/houses around the world. Amar is by far my favourite for few reasons: 1. The staff: as soon as you get there you feel part of the family, the staff is fresh, happy and ready to help (and party) 2. Place: makes you feel at home, it is peaceful and designed to let you...

The hostel is clean, good facilities and I loved the different (chill)areas in and around the hostel (the garden, the roofterrace, the restaurant). The atmosphere is good, people who stay in the hostel enjoy their time together and make it a good time. I liked that atmosphere. The price for a bed in a dorm is also really good! The...

This place was totally fantastic. Great location. The town is amazing- especially the food (seriously- the food!) The hostel is amazing for solo travellers. I met incredible people travelling along and it made my trip wonderful. If you aren't a beginning surfer I would recommend renting a board if you feel comfortable with waves. Bbq is great. Beds great. Super...

While looking for our own guesthouse in Portugal we are critical. We are jealous at this place! Good location, lovely vibe and lots of places to relax, cook, enjoy and sun. For a trip to ericiera this is one of the best places to stay..just don't try the balance cable after a few beers from the bar!!

Stayed here at the end of the season. Great location, just a 2min walk to restaurants and shops in Ericeira. Clean, spacious rooms, great social areas and a nice terass for a sunset session. You can walk to some of the nearby surfspots takes about 10 min, but when it comes to surfing in Portugal a car is necessary so...

“There are double/twin and triple rooms if you're going with friends. Light sleepers should always bring earplugs to a dorm, even if it is a quiet place like Amar.”

“There are beautiful sweets for individuals. The shared rooms have up to six or seven people so it can be a bit noisy if that is an issue for you.”
