Only stayed here for 1 night, but we had a great time! It's not easy to get there by public transport, but we hitchhiked and met some cool people!
Lovely place! Very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and very good breakfast. The location is great: walking distance from a wonderful beach and a lovely hike on the cliffs and through the hills. Beautiful. It's not accessable by public transit, but from Aljezur a taxi will cost about 10 euros, not too bad of a deal. We loved our room with a big balcony and a wonderful view! The place could use an oven :) but then again we fried our pizzas in pans and they were fairly edible :)
My plan was to stay here for three weeks but after the first days I got enough. The location is far away from everything, the closest supermarket is 30 min walk and it's actually pretty far to the beach too. The worst part is that I couldn't get my money back. I paid them for two weeks in advance but when I wanted to leave they told me that it was impossible to get my money back. I lost 120€ because of that. But mainly I don't recommend this hostel because of the unfamiliar atmosphere!
