Overall very good, but not enough restrooms, the prices for surfing are misleading and there was no mosquito protection. Other than that: perfekt!


Great hostel with nice staff. Nice atmosphere and quiet rooms.


GOOD VIBES! Hostel was clean and tidy. Staff were friendly and had good knowledge of local area. We booked our surfing lessons through the hostel, which made life easier. The lessons were done in small groups which meant we could head to whichever beach had the best waves and it created a better atmosphere. Everyone at the hostel was friendly and had the same idea that it is actually GOOD to talk to strangers! Kitchen facilities were excellent and breakfast in the morning made life easier.


Great location close to the bus station and inside the walled city. Staff were really friendly and knowledgeable about the area and stuff to do. Breakfast was good.


Very homy accomodation. Phill from the reception was a very friendly and relaxed bloke!

Good fun! Went out in Baleal with a few of the guests for a good night out. Good staff and facilities. Would stay here again


I truely love this place. A wonderful atmosphere, wonderful people in a wonderful place on our wonderful earth. I felt more than at home and enjoyed my time there so much. Thank you a lot you wonderful people over there :) I will be back!


I really loved my stay at Peniche hostel, even after i left i had to go back there as it felt like a family. Shana works the day shift and is extremely helpful with any information needed. Phil works the night shift and makes everybody feel very welcome and brings everybody together. We all had our dinners together and shared music, laughter and good times. Thankyou sooo much Shana and Phil for the best holiday of my life xxx


This place is amazing. Felt like home as soon as I walked in the door. Really cool laid back but tasteful style. Free gourmet muesli and jam with toast for breakfast was unreal! Gave great tips on great surf spots, bike hire and cliff walks. Central location to the restaurants and short distance from the main beaches. Wish I could of stayed longer. Would definitely recommend!
