Property Description

HI - Arrifana Youth Hostel is a brand new purpose-build hostel offering modern, comfortable and well-equipped facilities. Located in an excellent spot for surf and body board lovers, Arrifana has a relaxed atmosphere and it is well known for its long stretch of sand sheltered by cliffs with a picturesque fishing port.

Arrifana, a year round favorite beach with surfers and body boarders, is also ideal for nature lovers or simply for people looking for relaxing.

Located in Costa Vicentina Natural Park, in the south west coast of Portugal, Arrifana is one of the prettiest beaches with a reputation for fine grilled fish and for stunning natural landscapes, providing an excellent example of balance between human settlement and the natural environment. From here is worth it to explore further south along the coast, where are the beaches of Bordeira and Amado (Carrapateira), which have hosted national and international surfing and body boarding events, until Sagres that housed the famous nautical school founded by the Infante D. Henrique in the 15th century.

If you have the energy and desire to stray from the beaten track, albeit with difficult access, its possible to discover many other beaches that have been preserved in a virtually unspoilt state.

Hostelling International membership card is required. Portuguese can buy it directly at any hostel. Foreigners should buy it in their home countries otherwise a supplement of 2 per night/per person will be charged to non-members. Previous guests of other Destination Hostels properties are exempt from this charge.

A Hostelling International Member card is required (2 per night to a maximum of 6 nights) View House Rules

    The location and view is amazing, right next to arrifana beach. The staff was really nice. The hostal is pretty and the rooms are good. But there was only one shower for women in a whole floor, so it’s not comfortable and it wasn’t as clean as I expected.

    Had an amazing stay at hi arrifana, the team is helpful and open, but mostly very chill! Great music, great food, great people and a really nice sunset view from the terrace. The surfschool across from the hostel is supernice as well!

    Staff was awesome! So welcoming and always down to have a conversation or drink. Location is prime too- just a 5 minute walk from Arrifana Beach. Breakfast was included and basic but filling. Although dinner wasn’t provided, it was cheap and AMAZING. Great chef. Perfect lounge area with view of ocean. Only thing I wasn’t keen on was the room got very hot- no a/c or windows that open completely. And the kitchen was dingy and you had to leave a deposit every time. I’d still come back!

    Doesn't serve food outside "peak periods" despite advertising having a cafe. Very poor self catering facilities. E.g. no kettle and very little room in the area

    Location and the hostel itself were great. Found the staff quite rude. They were always huddled together talking, always seemed annoyed by questions or requests. Services was pretty bad.

    Rooms were clean and comfortable, showers didn’t drain very well. they mention having a restaurant which isn’t true at all and the pool is not as good as the picture looks. The location was great, nice and close to restaurants and the beach which is about a 20min walk

    If you don’t have a car and want to be close to the beach this is a good option. Otherwise their are probably better places. My main complaint of this place is the kitchen. It is not well equipped at all. Apparently you have to ask at reception to get any stuff to cook with but no one told me about this when I checked in. There was no Kettle to make a Tea or Coffee and no toaster. Fridge was broken and the one that we could use was very dirty and full of old food. Staff were nice and friendly.
