Overview of Hostel
Whether traveller, adventurer or beach bum, coming alone or with friends - as long as you’re keen for a relaxed vibe with friendly staff - you’ll fit right in.
We’re located a little further out of town because we’re not just a bed; our Surfhouse is a family style villa complete with pool, in-hou
Our nearest airport is FARO (FAO).
You can get a transfer straight from the airport to the hostel. Please get in touch for further info on airport transfers.

Taxis from Faro airport to Faro bus or train station will cost about EUR10 and take about ten minutes.

You're probably better off getting the bus which is quicker, cheaper and direct but if you'd rather get the train, you need to get the train from Lisbon to Tunes and change there for a train to Lagos (you'll only have to wait a few minutes).

We have a heap of free parking around the hostel and we're very easy to find, just 5 minutes from the main A22 Lagos to Spain motorway. If you have GPS, our co-ordinates are 37.1004047,-8.6861621, and we are on Rua da Pedra Alcada in Lagos. (The parking is at the back of the hostel as you look at it from the main street).
If you are coming from the A22, take the main Lagos exit (also signposted to Lagos / Sagres / Vila do Bispo) and follow the road into Lagos from there. When you reach the first roundabout, take the second exit into Lagos and when you arrive at the second roundabout, take your fist exit and we're right there on your left hand side!
If your time is flexible and you are travelling around Portugal or Europe we'd highly recommend not pre-booking any onward travel from Lagos. You think you might like to stay here for three or four days? Double it. And then double it again! And then phone your folks and tell them that you PROMISE you'll be home for Christmas at least! The three most common lies told in Lagos: 1) I love you 2) Just one more beer 3) I'm leaving tomorrow!.
We're located ten minutes walk from the centre of Lagos' old town and an easy walk to the beautiful beaches and clifftops Lagos is famous for. We offer the comforts of a home, but still within walking distance from the town centre, the beaches, and the nightlife.
