Property Description

The GIG (Green is Good) Capsule Hostel is located in the heart of Ericeira, in a traditional Portuguese house which has been completely refurbished for a better guest experience. Our hostel has two social spaces and a small kitchenette, where guests can help themselves to filtered bottled water and seasonal fruit. In the kitchenette guests can also have light meals, tea, coffee or a glass of wine. On the second floor of the GiG Capsule Hostel, there is a terrace ready for guests to wash and store their surf material or – for those who don’t like to venture in the sea – they can simply sunbathe.

The GIG Capsule Hostel is placed in the heart of Ericeira, only a 5minutes walk from the Pescadores beach and the village centre. We are 20 minutes’ walk from Ribeira d’ilhas beach and Foz do Lizandro. In addition, Ericeira became a World- Wide Surfing Reserve in October 2011, becoming the second reserve distinguished at a global level and remaining the only one in Europe.

Inspired by Japanese culture and with the charm of the fishing village, Ericeira, GiG Capsule Hostel emerged in order to provide a unique experience. We believe in a balanced life style, where healthy meals, rest and exercise are key factors for physical and emotional well being. In our Capsule Hostel, we want our guests to have the warmth of a hostel experience, but the comfort and privacy of a private room. Our custom beds were designed so each person feels like they have their own space. We have two mixed bedrooms, the biggest with eight beds and the other with four.

    Beautiful hostel in a great location. Magdalena was incredibly welcoming and helpful. The surf lessons were brilliant. Breakfast to die for. One of the best places I've ever stayed!

    Amazing hostel, everything was great and the breakfast was sensational. We met a really good crew here and loved Ericeira. If you’re going to Portugal don’t miss it. Also do the surfing lesson :)

    This hostel is amazing. Small, cute, very clean and perfect location. The managers are so nice and helpful. This place is perfect if you are looking for a more calm and quiet hostel, as you will not find many young party-people. :-) Also, there is a restaurant which the hostel belongs to, where amazing healthy food is served. The breakfast is served there as well, and the breakfast is unbelievable!! You get better&more food than in most hotels! Will definitely come back to GiG as soon as I can!

    Staying at GiG in Ericeira was hands down one of the highlights of my 3 week trip to Portugal. Having stayed in multiple hostels and air-bnbs throughout my trip I can whole heartedly say that nothing came close to this experience. The hostel is wonderfully designed and maintained and the staff become more like friends upon staying for more than a couple of days. The breakfast included is healthy, wholesome and filling and sets you up for the day ahead. Ericeira far surpassed my expectations.

    Super stylish place to stay, and very well located in the beautiful Ericeira. I was staying out of season so had the place to myself, but couldn't have been better looked after - plenty of advice and tips on best things to see and do locally. Breakfast was superb, and the place was spotlessly clean. The only thing that I think it misses is a chill out area (maybe a small sofa and music/magazines) , though in the summer the roof terrace would fit the bill.

    This is a VERY nice hostel. The food is outrageously good and I promise you will be unlike any other hostel breakfast you will ever have. Pay extra for it when booking, it is a truly unique experience. The capsule style is one that works well for privacy, but seems a bit odd at times as you don’t know who is actually in the room. I would have liked more common space as well. Regardless, I would definitely come back and recommend it to anyone looking for a clean and stylish hostel experience.
