“Wouldn't stay anywhere else!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

The perfect set up for a surf trip to Peniche! Wouldn't stay anywhere else! Claire and Duncan make you feel so welcome and work super hard to run an awesome hostel and get everyone enjoying themselves and the surf no matter what your level. Has everything you need, great price and the loveliest family running the show - you'll struggle to not have the best time staying here!!

Stayed March 2014, traveled as a couple

Dan and I had the most amazing visit to Peniche. We can't wait to go back again. This was my first time staying in a 'hostel' type environment, and it was absolutely amazing. Claire drove us to the beaches each day and ensured everyone was happy with their accommodations and the surf beaches we went to. We loved it so much, that we can't wait to go back again. Claire's family (hubby and son) were back in the UK for some work, so we hope to meet the whole family next time we go!
Thanks for the WONDERFUL hospitality Claire! Can't wait to come back again.

As soon as you get off the bus, you are met with a smile by either Duncan and Claire, a couple who own the lodge and have turned it into a labour of love. The lodge itself is immaculately kept and brilliant in terms of location.

The atmosphere is a family one, everyone who stays at the lodge gets on brilliantly, and people all tend to go to dinner together. You are taken every day to the best breaks and Duncan is able to work out the best waves for you.

I have never been away on my own, so was reluctant in a way, but so glad I came here. Duncan and Claire truly care that everyone who stays with them has a good time, and they are the sort of people that deserve to do well. Good things happen to good people.

Couldn't recommend this place more.

Let's just say that Peniche Surf Lodge is a little luxurious surf lodge with a spacious three story house!!
I was travelling alone and stayed in the 6 bed dorm and met amazing people! Among all three levels there were 4 bathrooms and 2 kitchens which were cleaned every day!
The lounge is spacious and big and awesome for little night time movie sessions or a few beers after a long surf
Claire and Duncan are so kind and generous and always willing to give a helping hand! Duncan and his son Dane are super keen surfers and always have good advice as to where to go... I had a car but those who didn't Duncan would take them to location to surf if desired!

Overall my experience was awesome I met some amazing people and had a great time in the lodge! Peniche itself in October is very quiet though :)
Definitely recommend staying there! Claire is super organised and replies to emails within a few hours and will be more than happy to help you out :)
Awesome place
Awesome waves :)

Clean, modern, comfy - this is a fab place to stay. Much more than that Claire & Duncan create an awesome atmosphere by taking care of all their guests so well. Half an hour's notice & Duncan came to pick me up in the pouring rain from the bus stop. Not only that but the best surf lesson I have had - this is a great place to stay whether you surf or not. I will definitely be back!

Claire and Duncan are truly great hostel hosts. They will do absolutely anything they can to make your stay comfortable. Would not hesitate to come back. The hostel was clean and decked out with everything you need. They provide regular lifts to the beach and surf board hire. They both have a friendly approachable way about them. Truly great stay.

Great location, nice and clean house. Duncan and Claire are very nice people who do a lot to make your holiday a real vacation. The hostel is clean and the people staying will also keep it clean. Most of the guests are surfers so everybody is pretty tired after a good surf which makes it nice and quiet after 22.30.
Stayed here with my family and we really felt at home. Thanks for a the beach trips etc.
