Property Description

Meraki Hostel is a new hostel on a traditional beach house, recently refurbished, modernized to be cozy, simple and relaxing. There’s free WIFI available throughout the property and a comfortable lounge-bar where you can have a beer or tea while surfing the web and charging your gadgets. At your service, there is a fully equipped kitchen with free coffee and tea all day, and a shared toiled with hot showers. Laundry service with washing and drying is also available.

The property is located in the center of Praia das Maçãs, a few minutes walking away from the beach, natural-water swimming pool, clubs, the surf-school, football and tennis courts, grocery shops and the tram/bus stops. A nice hike away by the beach and shore, there is the famous Praia Grande, notorious for its surf reputation, night-life and dinosaur-fossil rocks. Hike the other way around and you’ll find the amazing cliffs of Azenhas do Mar, considered by many one of the most spectacular places in Portugal. The center of Sintra, the historical village, is also easily reachable through the touristic tram departing right from our door.

We offer different types of accommodation for different sort os travellers (dorms and private accommodation options). In the hostel we value and promote respect, peacefulness, quietness and harmony, so we hope you don’t mind our chill-out decoration, the fragrance of a burning incense or a smooth jazz playing in the background. Put on your flip-flops, grab your beach towel, and enjoy the beach! Not on a beach day? That is cool: take a bike and ride (or just walk!) and explore the surrounding coast all the way to the amazing Azenhas do Mar or go even further to the wild Aguda.

    Lucia was a great help and very accommodating. The hostel is close to some amazing beaches with beautiful walks between them. There is also the beautiful Azenhas do Mar nearby too. It was a quiet, comfortable spot to stay which was amazing value for the price.

    Perfect little beach town for an escape from the city! This place was so clean, coffee and tea available all day, working fridge and stovetop. It was quiet and peaceful. Literally no downfall, besides that it’s along the main road so you hear cars zipping by sometimes! 10/10 would recommend and come again.

    Loved the place. The people were nice and very helpful. It’s right next to the beach and near a supermarket. Beautiful city, beautiful hotel. Only thing we didn’t appreciate is that you can’t lock your room and the hitel is also always unlock. We understand it’s a small city, but it would be nice to at least lock the room doors. Thanks for the stay guys!

    Great location, great atmosphere. But the staff wasn’t there to let me in when I arrived at 11am to leave my stuff there for the day, and then the woman who works there was upset when she came an hour later to let me in and I wasn’t there waiting, even though she hadn’t set up a time for me to meet her there. Overall great stay though.

    Check in was tricky as hostel didn’t have our booking, but the hostess was helpful once we got in touch with her and went out of her way to make our stay a pleasant one. Perfectly located; we were there in offseason so it was a quiet place.

    It was a lovely place to stay in a perfect location. There was a game of football on tv the evening I was there and visitors to the bar stayed loud well past it was over, as I'm not Portuguese I couldn't participate so it detracted a little from the atmosphere. They closed the bar at 11 or something though. I felt fairly safe, but it was a bit strange to be in a hostel with no locks except for lockers. Probably would have felt better if there was at least a locked door to the building.

    Great place if you’re not looking to meet people and just want to be near the beautiful beach! Would recommend having a car out here.

    I enjoying staying there but I think a hostel can't have no facilities in it. the kitchen was ok but there are no lockers unless you buy a lock from outside (why not selling it in the hostel?) I got an upper bed when i requested lower one (it was accsidently, but still, i have back problems) and there warn't any WIFI in all the days I stayed! For travelers it's ery problematic, I think this is basic in a hostel. The staff was really nice and the atmospher in the hostel too.

    La literie est mauvaise. Les douches et les toilettes sont dans la même pièce... jusque là rien de surprenant, sauf qu’il n’y a aucunes portes pour séparer chaque toilettes et chaque douche mise à part un volet de douche trop court ... Aucune intimité.
