This is a cool little hostel where you will probably meet everyone that's staying there and hang out. Glauco is a champ. Only wish I could've stayed longer.

Glauco's hostel was a home away from home. I cannot speak highly enough of this place where we were given all the information we needed the minute we stepped in the door. The rooms were well equipped with large lockers, curtains and individual lights. Cleanliness impeccable. The owner went out of his way to make sure we had the best stay in peniche providing extra services which I had never been offered in over 8 months travelling. Thank you!

An hostel which looks like home, 2 min walk from a huge beach with the warmest watter I found in central Portugal, super market on the way to buy stuff just before coming home, cook nice food and spending evening on the terasse speaking with cool hosts and Glauco, a very interesting, friendly, and kind guy! Ask him anything to plan your trip, he can help you! I really loved the atmosphere of my stay there!

Hostel is very nice and close to the beach, also very clean! The manager is always available. He told us where are the important things in the city, good restaurants etc. I would recommend it!

This is everything you need in a hostel. Clean bathrooms, dorms and private rooms and free wifi. Common areas for meeting people and the awesome hostel-boss Glauco. He is very friendly and helpful and makes your stay wonderfull. The hostel has the best kitchen ever, very clean. the terrace is a great place to meet everyone and full of nice murals and art, and the location is near the good beach to surf. I would defiantly stay here again!

Hands down best hostel I've ever stayed at. Glauco was the friendliest most helpful host I've met in all my years travelling. Don't bother looking at any other hostels in Peniche just book a bed here!

We spent a week in the West Hostel and there is nothing to complain about! Glauco was always there when we needed him, he gave us many ideas what to do even when the weather was bad, showed us local spots and told us about Peniche and Portugal. We felt really welcome at this place and the atmosphere was great. And it is is really clean! The beach is close, there are cafés and restaurants just next to the hostel, the local market and a supermarket are in walking distant. thank you so much Glauco!
