“100% relaxing holiday destination”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

My friends and I were completely taken aback when entering through the small court yard, to see the amazing sea view from the rooms of the hostel. Great beaches and dedicated surf instructors. We would not hesitate to return. The hostel owners are full of energy and love to get involved if your not sure where to go for a meal. A million stars for Lucia!

This was such a cool house. Together with the other visitors you feel like a part of the family. The hosts were also very friendly and helpful. They organized a surf lesson with one of the best surf teachers I have had. We stayed in the room on the top floor and I really recommend for its terrace and beautiful view over the ocean. Free internet and a computer was available. I just regret that I didn't stay longer (only two nights).

Room Tip: The twin rooms on the top floor are great. But if you want to save some money I belive the other roo...

Very cozy, clean a on the best place in the town. The hostel is not too big which is great, it feels like a summer house of a friend of yours. We stayed in a double room with a terrace and had a wonderful view on the ocean even from our bed. The house is stylish (just as the hosts Lucia and Miguel), no teenage look, fully equipped kitchen and living room, simple and working system for guests who want to use the kitchen and its fridge. You cannot wish anything better than staying in the traditional part of Ericeira. Blue Buddha New hostel is really everything you dream of when thinking of holidays. Lucia and Miguel, the hosts, are very friendly, helpful and open — Thank you and we will recommend you and hopefully will come back too. All the best! Z. from Prague.

We were recommended this place by a friend and it certainly lived up to it's reputation. A very clean environment, clevery decorated ad a tranquil stopping place with the best location in Ericeira. Just a stones throw from everything you will not be dissatisfied on the price either. After all this is a hostel and nit the Ritz but who cares I'd pick this place over the Ritz anyday! Lucia & Miquel make this what it is. The friendliest host anyone could wish for. Whilst we stayed there we met a few people who had returned to Portugal for their warmth and that is exactly what we found. They will go out of their way to help with anything.... Literally! It seemed more of a family environment at the Blue Buddha. We will definately be returning for some more of this when we can. 5 stars all the way u just hope nit to many people find out about it... I'm selfish I know.

For me Ericeira is the best town in Europe and Blue Buddha new hostel is really very good place for comfortable and chilled out stay. Everything in the hostel is new, clean and good designed. There is a shared bathroom, but it doesn’t make any inconvenience and it is always clean.
Very nice bakery with real coffee and nice prices is located at the corner.
I highly recommend Blue Buddha New Hostel and its amazing ocean view from the balcony.

I couldn't recommend this hostel more highly. The views from the balcony are stunning, the rooms and beds are extremely comfortable and it is kept immaculately clean. The showers are amazing and surf lessons with Semente Surf School are the best in town.

It's all run by locals and the surf school is very much hands on and you are brought away from where most of the surf schools are run, therefore avoiding gangs of beginners scrambling over one another, hitting each other with boards. They will do a deal if you book the school and your stay together and it is all very reasonable.

There is an amazing bakery around the corner from the hostel which does a great coffee, large freshly squeezed orange juice and freshly baked pastries, the trio of which come to €4.

The location of the hostel, as well as being literally over a white sandy beach, is a couple of minutes from the center and the proprietors are extremely helpful and friendly with any recommendations or anything at all.

I have stayed in hostels all over Europe, US and Central America and this is easily the nicest, cleanest and most chilled out hostel I've ever stayed in.
