    This is a brand new hostel and is owned and run by same family that run the Dunas apartments so they know what they are doing,and it shows. The finish and fittings are high quality. Kitchen is large bright and airy with everything you need and more. 2 state of the art microwaves. A 5 ring induction cooker, a large fridge and tons of plates cups and utensils. Bathroom and shower facilities are within each dorm so no running through corridors to get to them. 5 star stay and will return.

    It was a great, chill escape. Outside of Ericeira, far enough that you’re not going into town that night, bring some groceries and have a barbecue while watching an incredible sunset from the top of the hill over the beach. Really beautiful and relaxing!

    I booked for myself & 3 friends in a mixed dorm & we had the 8 bed dorm to ourselves for both nights! It felt very secure & having a bathroom en-suite was the best! There’s a pool you can access for free & we loved it. The only unfortunate thing I dealt with is they charged me incorrectly by 50 cents & instead of just asking for it upon arrival they charged my account again! I ended up getting charged $280 instead of $140 and it took 3 days to refund! Could have been handled much better.
