Property Description

If you’re a backpacker, then Lagos is undoubtedly on your list; a city with something for everyone – historic sites, outdoor adventures by day and an infamous party nightlife.

Our hostel can be found in a more peaceful part of town – close enough to walk to the city centre and beautiful beaches, but far enough to hear the birds chirp in the morning instead of the stragglers leaving the bars.We pride ourselves on finding the right mix between having a fun house, and also being able to get up in the morning to adventure or surf all day!

Please note that we are not a party hostel and are located in a residential area.

Our staff are always happy to help organize day trips surfing or other exciting activities.

    I couldn’t speak more highly of Algarve Surf! I came during low season & was there with only 1 other traveler but he & the 3 staff members—Mike, Alicja, & Maja—made the house lively & homey. We cooked dinner together & they also took us to their favorite local pizza joint with authentic Italian pizza & calzones. Mike had excellent recs for beaches/restaurants & let me hitch a ride to Sagres with him. The facilities were spotless, the beds super comfy, & free breakfast & lunch was excellent!!

    Enjoyed my stay at the Algarve Surf Hostel. Although I was one of the only people there that didn't go surfing. The hostel is not located in the centre of Lagos, but the walk is also not that far. The hosts were superfriendly, and the breakfast was AMAZING! Very close to a supermarket as well. Comfy beds WITH CURTAINS! Loved my stay!

    Great hostel with a pool. The breakfast is the best part by far. I did the surf package with the intention of going into the intermediate's group but seemed to be doing the same stuff as the beginner's group and didn't get out of waist-deep water and whitewash. So would probably go and just do a board hire next time. The staff are awesome and you are 2 mins from the Aldi.
