While this is not the nicest hostel I have ever stayed in, it is by far the friendliest and most pleasant. The staff went above and beyond their typical duties on a daily basis, because running the Good Feeling hostel is a lifestyle decision for the owners. All of the staff and guests are invited to enjoy an open, family-style surfer lifestyle while they're staying in Raposeira, Portugal. Do note that the location is not in a major city, so it's useful but not vital to have a rental car.
Best hostel I've stayed in. The staff are really helpful and friendly. The hostel is really nice and clean.
GoodFeeling was great - one of the most chilled out hostels we stayed at on our trip! It was a bit out of the way, which meant that at night it was quiet and peaceful. This is a real surfers hostel, every morning the staff will take you out to the beach and pick you up in the evening. Staff were really awesome! There isn't really much security - the doors are unlocked all the time but there was no reason to feel unsafe. I would definitely recommend this hostel and would stay here again.
Really good hostel, super friendly staff! Had a really relaxing stay.
Amazing hostel. There was a great chilled out atmosphere, especially in the evenings with the bar and music. The staff were incredibly helpful with suggestions, surfing and beach drop offs! Great facilities and nice options of eating meals as a group. Also, the best mojitos we have ever had!
Some small problems with hot water, but I think its a general problem in the Algarve region.
This is a very basic hostel with an awkward mix of guests, and slightly disinterested staff. All the extra activities are quite costly for a budget traveller. In saying that, it was a nice beach break, and a chance to see the Algarve away from the madness of Lagos.
Maybe the best hostel in the world. You really get a good feeling! Very friendly staff, great atmosphere, and very cool activities. If you want to go to the Algarve the goodfeeling is a must-stay.
Nice hostel with very friendly staff. It's located in a very small village and it's a bit far to some points of interest or the beach, but the hostel offers a free shuttle service to very nice beaches and everything is very flexible and adjusted to what you want. They make a home made dinner for just 7€ witch was really great.
TheGoodfeeling is the best hostel experience i have had, hands down. If you want to go surfing around Tavira, just want to hang out, or whatever, this is the place. The staff is brilliant, and the atmosphere is awesome. Note: The hostel itself is not really close to anything, but the staff accomodated us with transport whenever they could. We also did a stand-up paddle tour that was brilliant!

Best hostel I've stated in yet. Do the stand up paddle boarding tour, it's spectacular!
Nice and very friendly staff. The vibe / atmosphere is like in a community. Unfortunately it is not the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in.
Awesome place and an amazing staff!! I would definitely recommend...
Really nice place if you like surfing or SUP-ing. The owners of the place have 2 beautiful Peugeot 506's to bring you to the beach having the best conditions that day.
Great vibe in the hostel, chilled out with very friendly staff. I really enjoyed Carlos' amazing meals and Miguel driving us to some lovely beaches that were off the beaten path to share some of his vast knowledge and experience of surfing with us.
