I had something like six friends recommend this place to me as the best place to go surfing with in Porgual.. So when I arrived, I obviously had some expectations to manage. The good news is that I could never have expected it to be as good as it actually turned out to be. The great news is that staying here was the highlight of my trip. Walking into this beautiful, homely house you immediately feel like you've just arrived at your old shared friends house for a week of catching up and surfing rather than a hostel you've never set foot in. Everyone that stays here is warm and friendly, the beers are cheap, the fresh cookies delicious! The communal cook ups and bbq's in the evenings set the vibe and the regular bar trips, restaurant ventures and beach parties kick it along nicely. Oh, and the surf is perfect for learning through to mastering out the back whilst the instructors actually pick up on your individual strengths and weaknesses and take you in great bounds to being a better surfer.
Couldn't recommend this place more.. just book it.
