Property Description

We are open!!

The Algarve is reopening its doors to tourism and so are we!

Things might look a bit different when we re-open as we’ll be implementing some new health and safety measures to guarantee you all a safe and enjoyable experience:

- Your temperature may be checked at check in. Additionally, for your peace of mind, Bura Surfhouse staff will also be checked prior to the start of their shift.
- Reduced capacity in our dorms of one bunk bed per person and occupied beds will be sufficiently spaced apart.
- More stringent cleaning and hygiene measures, especially in the bathrooms and kitchen (including hand sanitiser available throughout the hostel for guest use, individual hand towels for guests and obligatory use of face masks in the kitchen).
- Several practical measures to help make it possible for a 1.5 meter distance to be maintained throughout, such as: altered breakfast set up, limited numbers of people in the kitchen at any one time.
- We will NOT be offering our family dinners throughout June (we will review this for July)

Looking forward to welcoming you back to our beloved surfhouse! ☀️

We have been listening to the reviews from our guests! As a result of this, we have made the following improvements for season 2020 to make your stay even more comfortable:

•We have replaced the flimsy, noisy bunk beds with amazing new custom made structures, which will also provide more privacy due to their design;
•We have replaced the older lumpy mattresses;
•A new layout which will decrease the number of guests per bathroom. This will also improve overall maintenance and cleanliness of our bathrooms;
•With the new hostel layout, the amount of walkthrough bedrooms is reduced to just one. This room will have a lower cost than the others, and with the new bunk beds and other adjustments we've made, it will barely feel like a walk through;
•We are in the process of installing improved security to our premises. While we are proud of the relaxed vibe which our guests love, we feel this should not compromise security.


Whether traveller, adventurer or beach bum, coming alone or with friends - as long as you’re keen for a relaxed vibe with friendly staff - you’ll fit right in.

We’re located a little further out of town because we’re not just a bed: our Surfhouse is a family style villa complete with pool, in-house chef, rooftop terrace, and poolside bar. We offer the comforts of a home, but still within walking distance from the town centre, the beaches, and the nightlife.

The hostel has an open-plan layout with tons of natural light, spacious and fully equipped kitchen, plenty of outdoor seating, deck chairs for tanning by the pool, hammocks for lazy days, and a wraparound balcony perfect for breakfast in the morning sun.

Travelling alone? No big deal, you can easily meet like-minded travellers by joining us for our famous family style dinners prepared by our chef each evening, or by grabbing a beer at our poolside bar.

You’ll be part of the Bura family from the get go - we offer a free welcome drink upon arrival. We update our activities board weekly which details daily events and local tips on things to do, drink and eat in Lagos.

Not a night owl? No worries; our quiet location allows guests looking for a good night’s sleep to escape the hustle and bustle of town. We are a fun hostel, but not a ‘party’ hostel, so please bear that in mind when booking with us.

We can organise surf lessons, surf trips, yoga classes, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, wake-boarding, wine-tasting to our local vineyard, and a whole range of other activities through our 24 hour reception.

- Please note at Bura Surfhouse we have a strict over 18 policy.
- We have a lovely dog at the hostel, so please take this into consideration if you have any pet allergies.
- Please note that one of our 4 bed dorms is a walk through to connecting rooms, so please bear this in mind when considering your booking.

    Amazing hostel - could not have asked for a better stay for our time in Lagos, we actually decided to come back to Lagos after a week of traveling elsewhere and wanted to go back to the Bura Surfhouse. The staff was so friendly and welcomed us with open arms, they were so helpful and provided us with everything that we needed. The breakfast every morning was definitely a plus and the family dinners (8€) were amazing - highly recommend this place to all!

    A great hostel! I stayed here for only one night but it's a really relaxed and spacious place. Their breakfast was PANCAKES which is a fantastic switch up to the usual 'cereal and white bread' routine. The staff were cool, their pool and communal areas were really nice and it was all welcomed after travelling a lot!

    Staff were very welcoming, good vibes all round. Cant beat chilling by the pool with 1€ beers from the bar. Beds were super comfy. Supermarket 5 minute walk away, with burgerking. About 10/15 minute walk to the town and beach. Would definitely stay again.

    Great hostel! We were greeted by Annie, the dog - very friendly. Staff were really friendly as well! Helped us out lots with figuring out some activities. The on-site cook makes amazing dinner meals (comes with a small cost). About a 25 minute walk to the beaches. The beds were comfortable. The lockers were too small for our luggage but we just put them under the bed and it was fine. Great place to stay! We would definitely like to come back in the future.

    It wasn’t the cleanest bathroom. I’m not one to complain but the bed was awful. It was basically a box spring, not a mattress. Other then that I had a great time and it has a great vibe.
