West hostel is one of the, if not the best hostel we've stayed at. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and would go out of their way to assist you. Facilities were incredible and clean. There is not one bad thing to say about this glorious little place.

The staff : awesome, feels like a friend, always here for us, very nice Hostel is really clean, stylish, feels home, relax Breakfast is not that good or complete (no juices etc.. It's too basic) Well situated (near supermarket, beach and bus station :) ) Atmosphere is great: meeting new people + great music It is possible to borrow a lot of beach stuff (games, surf equipment etc..) We recommend 100%

Loved this hostel. The guy is a legend and super helpful. Location is right next the beach with free parking out the front. Shops and places to eat right next door and around the corner. Big kitchen and good breakfast, would happily stay again.

From the start at the entry you could have a look around all the facilities and Gauco gave an brief and very nice introduction about the house and Peniche and its surroundings. Prepaired with an special map I felt well prepaired to find all the things interesting, like the beautiful sunset at Papoa. The backyard had a long and interconnected terrace just perfect for relaxing and having a nice chat with Gauco and the other peoples around. I really enjoyed my time over there - Thanks a lot! :-)

The hostel is maintained by super cool and true Portuguese guy, We grilled Sardines together and made polish soup in exchange. Its not the hostel which you will forget about after you leave, but one that will remind you the Portuguese hospitality. The beach where you can surf if just 5 minutes walking from hostel. There is one big Inter Marche shop and beach coffee-shop with good black drink for 60 cents I highly recomend this place

Great spot!!!

Super Clean hostel and really good beds (I stayed in the dorm rooms). Glauco will definitely make you feel welcome and go out of his way to show you what the town has to offer, where is good and worth checking out. Great cooking facilities and even a BBQ, with a great chill out lounge inside and also outside on the terrace. If you are going through Peniche for a short stop or for longer and looking for surf, I would definitely recommend West Hostel.
