Property Information:

The Gold Coast Hostel welcomes you with our chill atmosphere and relaxed vibe. We have several types of rooms with air conditioning (for 1, 2, 4, 6 or 8 beds).
This is a fun hostel, but it is not a madhouse. We are not Party Central. We`re happy if you start the night at our Hostel, but after midnight, we would like to keep quiet. You're never far from a great party in Lagos, but following it up with a good night's sleep in a relaxed environment, is priceless. That is what you will get at Gold Coast.
The Double rooms (for couples) have the same facilities as dorms, but they are located in our second building, 40 meters away from the main Hostel. Check-ins are at the given address.
A large kitchen is available for guests use. You can enjoy a drink on our terrace and use our barbeque! Not to mention the common room with lots of dvds and books. Also there is free broadband and WiFi Internet access. Other facilities include free individual safes, towles and linen as well as free coffee and tea all day.
Breakfast is included (light continental breakfast).
Come for our free Sangria tasting and other surprise specials.
We make bookings for transfers from Faro Airport to Lagos and from here to there. Suitable for small or bigger groups. A 48 hours advance booking is desirable. Please contact us right after your booking is done.
The town:
We are in the heart of Lagos, famous by its good vibe and party atmosphere, not to mention the warm and sunny days. Here you'll find top quality beaches with their clear sands and clean waters. Our coast has great quality of air and seawater hard to find elsewhere in Western Europe. Lagos has also an interesting historical heritage. If you are experiencing Spain & Portugal, travelling here its definitely a must, since Lagos has the perfect atmosphere for everybody.
Some activities:
We are located in a area which has marvellous conditions and multiple choices on Surf, windsurf, kite surf, SUP, sailing, kayaking, microlight flight, jogging, horse riding, safaris, sea faris, grottoes trips (boat or kayak), fun parks, water parks, big game fishing, dolphin watching and much more!!
Our team has experience in promoting accommodation and working with tourists who enjoy outdoor and sport activities, such as Surf in the West Coast and much more. Check details with us when you arrive for the check-in.

Portugal is easier if you are in a budget since most supermarket food and beverage is cheaper then in most western European countries. You can also get take-away food in lots of places.
At Gold Coast we help you with any information you might need about Lagos and area and also about other great places in Portugal, what to see, how to get there, bus and trains timetables and more.
NEW: Have a taste of the “traditional Algarve” with our special dinners and learn how to prepare some of the local best dishes.
Enjoy a City tour with a local guide and learn about Lagos not only as a fun town but also as a cultural and hsitorical place!

Main check-in time is between 12 PM and 12 AM. No access to our premises before check-in time.
