Property Description

I am Ricardo, welcome to my beach house! This family-owned hostel is the realization of lifelong dreams and long-term experience hosting couch surfers, teaching surf lessons, giving tours, and offering great times to fellow travellers in the Lisbon area. You can enjoy a Portuguese paradise at our big, beautiful red house, located only a 3 minute walk from the beach. We offer amazing and affordable surf classes, dinners and barbeques, day tours and camping tours, shuttles to and from Lisbon and the airport, and laundry services, lockers for your stuff, slots during the week where guests can sign up to teach and take classes, movie nights, and other fun activities. Our shared spaces include a large, cozy lounge area with handmade furniture, games, instruments, and a warm, roaring fireplace. There is an outside bar area with grill and wood-burning oven, a big lawn and swimming pool, hammock, and warm outdoor shower. Our kitchen is modern and fully equipped to put together excellent meals. We know a ton about Lisbon and the surrounding areas so don’t hesitate to ask for our help in planning your adventures.

Costa da Caparica is a funky beach town just outside of Lisbon with long stretches of beach and great waves year round. This is the closest surf destination to Lisbon. What makes our hostel’s location extra special is that our beach is semi-private, which means that it doesn’t get overwhelmed during the high season like other beaches in the area. We are located a 3-minute walk from the beach, so you can just grab your board or your beach towel and head right over. Transportation to and from the hostel is a cinch. You can organize shuttles and tours with us, or you can walk to the bus-stop, train, or the 10-min ferry into Lisbon. Downtown Costa is just a short bike-ride or a leisurely walk away. We are also close to amazing natural areas like Arrabida that are great for hiking or tours.

Our 2 large dorms, small female dorm, and two private rooms feature custom graffiti art by Ricardo and friends, cozy bunk-beds, personal lights, and plenty of outlets. Towels are available to rent and bicycles are available to use for free. We strive to provide an unparalleled experience for our guests. Come learn, play, and have an amazing time at 7 Waves Surf Hostel.

    My favourite hostel at Costa da Caparica. This was my second stay at 7 Waves and I continue to highly recommend this hostel. Ricardo is by far the most welcoming host you will ever meet. The hostel itself is clean, warm, and topped off with a swimming pool. I have nothing but good things to say about the 7 Waves, and I will be back soon!

    This was the best hostel I've stayed at! The staff is extremely friendly and hospitable, particularly Angie, who made my friend and I personalized breakfast each morning, printed our boarding passes, and gave helpful insight about the area. The location is a short 7 minute walk from the beach, and the hostel has a sweet backyard area with a pool and lounge chairs and small kitchen area. It felt like I was staying at a resort.

    I stayed in 7 waves hostel second time and that's a wonderful time. The place is really cool and relax. House is clean and tidy (and no bedbugs haha! At least i didn't see it and other guests as well). The staff is the best!The beach is so close. We went to the bonfire together, surf every day and watched movie in the evening. I've already missed you guys and Becas (the dog there=))) Hope to come back soon and surf again together! Thank you Ricardo for everything. You made my best vacations.

    Great place to stay for the weekend. It's right next to the beach, which they host surf lessons, so it's a great way to start.

    Absolutely fantastic hostel! The staff were so friendly and brought us all to a beach party on the first night. The pool and common area were the most relaxing well planned out areas of a hostel I've stayed at. Would highly recommend.

    Did not enjoy my stay at this hostel at all. The beds were horrible and the sheets and blankets felt as if they were 30 years old and unwashed. There was absolutely no atmosphere and the staff did not do much after the initial greeting. As a person traveling alone I thought they would try and include us but they just left us at the hostel to go out drinking by themselves for two hours. The only good thing about this hostel was the pool and the very cute dogs.

    Watch out: bed bugs! Our check-in was done by someone who was on her day off. Our rooms weren't ready, so we went to the pool. The staff was on their phones all day and even taking naps. Around five we checked up on our room, and the staff started to clean our beds then. We were able to go to the dorm around six. The room was dirty and we discovered bedbugs in the middle of the night. The owner didn't really care and he went surfing. We did get a refund, and 64 bed bugs bites to top it off.
