  • Description


    Our hostel is now a family business, that apart from the family members, also employs two locals, so you can find here a warm, nice and familiar environment. It is located in the very heart of Peniche, This old fortress is close to various beaches and about an hour away from Lisbon. Peniche has become very popular for surfing in the past years, but it has to offer so much more. Our place finds its home in a historic building that dates back to 1941 and has been fully restored back in 2010.
    We have one floor with dormitories equipped with bunk beds and another floor with private rooms (bathrooms ensuite) for our guests. We have a bar with an open air terrace and a living room with a fireplace to be cozy even when it's raining outside as well as an internet/office space for the convenience of our guests. All areas have WIFI. Since we are a place like home, we also have a fully equipped kitchen, of course, a BBQ and cold showers in the garden.

    Our guests range from the young surfer, families and children to older generations and thus bring in various vibes and add to an overall comfortable atmosphere.

    All amenities are within walking distance (Supermarket, Banks, Bakeries, Bars, Restaurants, Bus Station with local and regional transport, Hospital, Post Office, Parks and a Skate Park, Clubs and the Beaches) and thus, the town invites for walks and bike rides to take care of your daily needs. With everything around the corner and a hostel that offers all comfort and space for adventure and leisure, we are happy to invite you to stay with us as a helper to experience first hand.

    As long as you are a hard worker, you will find this help is extremely relaxed. Workawayers often end up staying much longer than they expect to. We are looking for good cleaners with an eye for detail!
