“Would not recommend it”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Pros: Nice big house, well decorated lounge room and big dorm. Friendly staff (except for the manager)

Cons: Can only use the kitchen between 1-3pm. The barbeque is 5 euro per person, per hour! The manager treats her customers like children.. She wouldnt even let me use a blender to make some soup because 'its her favourite toy'. She made a big deal about it and did it for me then exploded soup everywhere anyway.
Our stuff got stolen from the van during a surf lesson..which this isn't their fault, but the manager of the hostel didnt even say sorry or offer any sympathy.. She just told us to go to the police station and file a report.

Oh and when I checked out she charged me for 5 euro using the kitchen twice.

Overall.. if you're looking for a place where you feel welcome and at home.. look elsewhere.

We just wanted a hostel for one night but stayed there for three nights. Great room with names of the beaches round ericeira. Evry room with their own caracter. Great breakfast and helpful and friendly staff. If you go to ericeira go here!!!

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view over the ocean, the street view rooms are also great

This is an excelent place to stay. Its in a beautiful spot with panoramic views over the harbour and Playa Norte. Its beautifully decked out with a lush, cosy living room and clean rooms. Its close to a whole range of surf spots and the owner has a wealth of knowledge and info on surfing the area. The best thing tho.... I left mine and my friends wetsuites behind and they posted them homw for me in time for a weekend surf when I got home! Best service ever. Will definately be staying here again....enjoy

Room Tip: Dorm is good or go for the Coxos room with an awesome roof terrace

I stayed here for five nights and I will be staying there again next visit.
Firstly, perfect location, in the center of a small fishermen and surfers village.
The staff is friendly and the accomodation impressive: each room has a wall painting as tribute to surf's spots in Ericeira; the common areas (lounge room, courtyards, kitchen) are wide, clean and really nice.
The lounge room, where you take your breakfast, dinner or you can just relax, has a spectacular seaview.
the breakfast (which is included in price) is generous and if you want to cook, the guest kitchen is really well equipped.
There isn't anything I would change about this hostel!
