10 days of pure happiness. Upon our arrival we were greeted with nothing but hospitality. Laughter and stories about Portugal gave our evening a delightful atmosphere. And when it came to teaching how to surf, joăo knows his game. Truly one of the best surf teachers I ve gotten to know - by far. I ll be back.

Comfortable and homey. More like a communal house than hostel. Quick ride to the beach to surf and close to Porto too. JD keeps it clean and all amenities are well supplied. Lots of group dinners, surf movie nights, and good times. I'll be back!

The atmosphere at this place was very relaxed, it's low key and friendly - just what I was looking for. The owner Joao picked me up from the train station.

The atmospher is calm an relaxing, the tube ( the backyard bungalow ) is confortable with everything you need inside and you can listen to the ocean's sound coming from the wood before falling a sleep. The familiy run the hostel is so warm and has a great ospitality.

I spent 1 happy day there,having the first in my life surf lesson. I could only recomend this hostel and people, which are working there. The location is not that far from the city and you also have a nice chance to enjoy wild beaches of Portugal and relaxing Atmosphere.

We had a great time at Sofia and João's place. It's very comfortable and welcoming. Close to the beach and beautiful untouched nature is all around. We will come back in the summer to try out some surfing for sure!!

The place is very nice and clean. The owner is very professional and friendly. I think it is the best place to learning surf. The location is in the natural reserve, perfect to relax himself but not far from the Porto for nightlife.
