    The Surf Embassy is such a special place and will forever be my favourite hostel I have ever traveled to so far! I booked to stay three nights and ended up staying for weeks. The owner Telmo is so kind and welcoming and comes around the hostel often so you will get to meet him. The hostel itself is so cozy and cute, I felt right at home when I was there. I ended up meeting two life-long friends there that I still see in different countries now! I have the hostel to thank for that :) 100% book!

    This place is 10/10 would stay again. Not sure what the other review was on about the atmosphere is welcoming and loving. If we weren’t all hanging out watching breaking bad, the staff (especially Marco) invited us to go out with them. Lily is a total darl also and the boss behind it all Telmo absolute legend. Shout out to Patrick and Duarte also, all the staff are incredible and I felt so comfortable. Honestly, a great way to enjoy Peniche, will be back for sure!

    Such a wonderful hostel I had to extend my stay. The decor is so cute and beachy, I fell in love instantly. The room is comfortable, bathrooms are spacious and common area is cozy & inviting. The staff is so welcoming, helpful and kind - truly felt like a home and one big fam. They were so accommodating with my late arrival & Patrik took such great care of my scratched knee. Beautiful vibe! Thank you!!!

    I was only here for a night, but I wish I could’ve spent longer!! It was off season during my stay so the hostel was pretty quiet, but the staff were lovely and very welcoming (they knew my name upon arrival which felt nice!) The one on one surf lesson was amazing and 100% worth it. Awesome that they have bikes and skateboards to use free of charge. And the beaches/sites of peniche are amazing! Will definitely be back.

    I loved this place! The facilities, kitchen, common spaces were small and not at all fancy, but there was everything you would need. Plus, the staff was super helpful and friendly-yay, Patrick and Lily!! There was a family atmosphere there, Plus there are bikes to use for free!

    Amazing location. The hosts are very generous with their time and make you feel very welcome. They explained on a map where to go,’what to do and what to eat. They were very easy to contact as well. The hostel is very clean and pretty. No breakfast included and a small kitchen but it didn’t really matter. Not a large communal area to hang but we still did.

    Overall a nice stay but it did seem unorganised from the outset. Also, my phone charger and portable charger were stolen from the dorm room.

    I am surprised this hostel is rated so highly on website. The vibe was a bit off, the service was too casual in there being no reception or even a till. The power cut out in the late evening so couldn't charge my phone or use the side light. Even if the electricity was working, the cable supplying the top bunk's side light did not stretch to the power socket so wouldn't have worked anyway. The location is good for restaurants but literally miles away from any beaches. Would not recommend.
