Captain's Log House
Ranked #8 of 103 Specialty Lodging in Peniche
Reviewed July 18, 2013

It was my second stay at Captain’s. this time with full house. despite of that it was not crowded or uncomfortable, on the contrary, I felt like visiting an old friend's house.I was picked up from Peniche bus station and straight away went surfing a nearby secret spot.

I could talk a lot but will try to focus on most important aspects: - free breakfast, served each day by supernice staff; free fruits and little chocolates available for guests; surf storage place; bikes that you can rent free of charge and explore nearby villages or simply checkout waves each morning (do not forget to lock the bike ;) and interesting people from all over the world that you can meet and party with.

I hooked up with surf camp from Slovakia, which uses Captain’s as their base; it was great as I could improve my surf skills with Ben and Peter- the instructors. We had one barbecue party with 2 guys playing guitars, one guy playing watering can as drums, and few others singing
Jack Johnson “Old train to breakdown” which was quite epic...
Visit Captain’s and you will not regret it! High five to Ze and Sabina and see you next time.

If you´re looking for a place to feel soooo cozy, welcomed and safe from the harmful ocean breeze out there in Baleal, this is your place to go! Sadly just spent one night there because of us traveling on along the coast, but these guys managed to make me wanting to come back instantly! Nice rooms, a spacey living room with games, comics and an endless bowl of peanuts on the table - what more do you need? Everything a surfer needs, from a drying room for your wettie and board to good advices which spots to frequent, it´s like a 'no worries'-program there. Love to come back, and thanks a lot for scrambled eggs and pancakes !!! ps. pay attention the the nice artwork all around the house, this comic sailor-style is really cool!

A great hostel with everything you need for a fun and comfortable trip. Sabina is great, she takes care of any requests with unparalleled efficiency! The breakfast is excellent and makes the already well priced hostel even better. The rooms are modern and clean with comfortable beds. Bikes to borrow to ride to Peniche or go exploring on. Lots of room to safely and securely store your surfing gear. As with all travel, it's about the people, and this place seems to attract fun and social people, which starts with the friendly and genuine owners, Ze and Cisco. Location is great, walking distance to some great surf spots and restaurants. I hope to make it back soon!

Kept extending my stay because I loved it so much. The people, the vibe, the ambiance, the creativity, the location, beaches, and surf, I could go on.. okay, I will: It was clean, comfortable, fun, relaxing, social, and so friendly. The breakfast was to die for! I will remember it forever and hopefully will make more memories when I return some day :)

Need a downside? It set the standard so high for hostels that I was disappointed when I traveled else where.

The owner - Ze pays a lot of attention to details. She is extra polite and very attentive.
The conditions are just excellent, friendly atmosphere. The breakfast is so tasty and nice. The girl who serves breakfast in the morning does it with love and she is singing songs.
Sabina is awesome and greatest person! Contact to her anyway , she can advise you, organize your trip to Peniche. Try her yoga classes!

My boyfriend and I stayed in the family room for 3 nights and felt totally at home. First star goes to the easily accessible parking in the back. A total win if you travel with a car not to pay for parking!

Second star goes to the welcome of Zé and the rest of the staff. They aren't there 24/7, so they really tell you all the ins and outs so you can do your own thing. This really adds to the comfortable feel of the place.

Third star goes to the comfortable beds and insanely clean facilities. The kitchen has all you'd need and then some (free booze, spices and garlic/onions, etc), everything is easy to find and there's plenty of space.

Fourth star goes to location. Right on the beach, nothing to complain about there!

And the fifth star goes to the garden and grill area, what a fabulous set-up, so relaxing. Just a great place all around!

Stay here! We love the Captian's Log House and next time we'll bring a group!
