    Honestly the best hostel I've stayed in. Everyone at this hostel is incredibly welcoming and I immediately felt at home. It doesn't really feel like you're staying at a hostel but instead, you're part of an international family. Already planning to come back here so I can get better at surfing.

    BELIEVE THE HYPE! This hostel is easily one of the best I’ve ever stayed in. As soon as you walk in you feel at home, greeted by the owners, volunteers and guests alike. Instantly felt like part of the group - out for surfing sessions, family meals together and out for drinks. Everyone is super friendly and the rooms and common areas are great. Won’t be considering anywhere else to stay when I return to Lisbon!

    If I could give this place more stars I would. I have never stayed at a better hostel. Staying here felt like you were staying with close friends even though you just met everyone. I hadn’t planned on surfing before arriving, but would absolutely reccomend it as the instructors are amazing and so fun. One drawback was that I couldn’t find the hostel in any search engine using the name listed here. It is actually called: Gota D’auga surf. Link below. Stay here!!!

    Bro, by far the best hostel I’ve ever stayed at. If you want a family vibe about the hostel where everyone is chill asf then this is the place to go dude. Surfing lessons are daily and they drive you there in the van. Heaps of little trips/party’s/dinners with all the staff and travellers. You really feel like your home here. Can’t describe how much I enjoyed staying here and I wish it could have been longer. Special thanks to all the staff, you guys know who you are 🤟 keep doing what you doing

    If you’re looking for a chill beach getaway - this is the place for you! It feels like family as soon as you arrive! Amazing beaches and cute cafes are just a short walk away. Friday night BBQ dinners are great! Not as clean or well maintained as it could be, but a good time all the same :)
