"Best experience in my life !!!"

I loved most of all the people and the cool and easy going atmosphere in the hostel. Everyone I met (from the owners, instructor, receptionist to the people staying in the hostel) they are incredible and special people with such a good energy. The surf was amazing, perfect beach to learn to surf. Honestly one if not THE best experience I've ever had. No doubts I'll be back soon to Ericeira. Fully grateful with the people of Hostel & Surfcamp 55.

"Great Place !!"

Everyone is great at SurfCamp 55.

Goncalo,Andrea, Daggi were great hosts, very friendly, and very helpful.

Hugo and Miguel are experienced surf coaches and always look for what’s best for their students. Miguel is a great guy, very genuine, and friendly. You should always trust him because he gives his students the best advice. (Bad pool player though)

Will definitely come back

"Hostel that feels like home!"

I loved everything about this hostel. Everyone there creates such a good vibe, owners, instructors, hostel Manager, even the visitors pick up the energy right away. Everything is very clean and very well looked after.

I can’t wait to go back! 😊

"Great staff, great place and great location "

Such a beautiful hostel! Great location, right on the ocean and close to stores and bus station! Super friendly and cool staff and the surf lessons were awesome. Amazing experience overall

"Very pleased..."

The management caters to your needs and tries to help you. I met Goncalo and Andrea, they are both sweethearts and try to meet your expectations. My room was cold the first day and they gave me a portable heater. I stayed in a private room on the second floor with a beautiful ocean view. The weather was fantastic, the hostel is within walking distance to everything (supermarket, general shopping, laundromat etc). The airport transfer was very comfortable as well. I highly recommend them! They are starting renovations this month, the rooms will be insulated.

"Great experience! "

This was a really great experience! I was a total beginner when arriving to Ericeira, but with great instructors and good surfing conditions I was able to improve alot during my stay. I had such a great time that after my week I just had to stay 10 more days. Thank you & see you next year!

"The Best Hostel I've Ever Been To!"

Hostel 55 is the most welcoming hostel I've ever been to. The staff are incredible and will help you with anything you need. The rooms are clean, fun, and comfortable. I felt so safe and relaxed here - it felt like home. During the week, I met so many amazing people, and it was due to the fact the hostel has such a calm and relaxed vibe. I'd never surfed before and the instructors were amazing. Now I've fallen in love with surfing and Ericeira. Hostel 55 is the best.

"Fantastic! "

Overall The hostel, the receptionist, the instructors (Gonzales, Hugo and Fernando (or how the f there names is spelled correctly)) were all fantastic and super welcoming, and a place i definitely would book for a 3th stay, and take surf lessons again !

The instructors are really interested in giving you the best experience, and helping you to learn/get better at surfing on your own terms !

The receptionist is just amazing, welcoming and will find a solution that fit your needs for the stay. She gives the place that last sprinkle, that just makes the whole stay and the atmosphere at the hostel fantastic!

The hostel has the right location, it's near the city center and ocean, but still has a quite cozy backyard etc.

Would recommend this !

"Friendly hostel with lovely guests and staff"

Had an amazing time in Ericeira, the owner, manager and the instructor are super friendly. Everyone staying at the Hostel is so approachable and keen on meeting new people and do extra activities. The packaged offered by the Hostel is very worth it as it works out much cheaper than paying for everything individually. Great facilities, although would encourage organizing hostel nights and maybe just music in the background in the living room. Otherwise the kitchen is great, the hostel is EXTRA clean and the manager is treating you like a King. Thanks for the stay, would definitely come back & recommend it.

"Surf & Yoga Retreat "

I had such an amazing trip at Hostel 55. It was the first time I’d tavelled alone and booked the trip very last minute. Met lots of like minded people and had an amazing week of surf, yoga, sun and lots of amazing food. All the staff at the hostel are very welcoming, the facilities were perfect and very homely! I would highly recommend!

Great location and accomodation facilities - 5 minute walk to the beach, the town centre (restaurants, shops) and 15min walk to yoga studios!

Can only recommend, the vibe in the hostel were great, there's super chill common rooms and terrasse! Ideal to enjoy the waves, Ericeira and a relaxing week away!

"Fantastic experience!"

I could feel home, I lived the hostel like everyone should do when we travel, we make friends and we hang up together. The lessons were complete: explanation for safety, training before going in water, paddling and standing up!

"Exceeded my expectations in every single way."

The hostel is lovely - clean rooms, WiFi, big kitchen to cook and store food in, friendly staff, plus a free transfer from the airport. The location is perfect and the views are amazing. Plus, everyone in the hostel really gets to know each other well, as we all surfed together etc. too.

"Surf, Sun and Sand! "

The staff were so lovely - Andrea, Goncalo, Andre, Bruno, everyone! They're really chill and it makes the experience that much more relaxing - you really have the feeling you're on holiday at this place!

The surf lessons were great - Andre has so much energy and always wants you to succeed. You feel so motivated to just keep trying if you don't make it the first time!

The room (I had the Jamaica room) was so cool! It was bright and airy. The common room was even brighter and had such a good vibe where everyone could chill or sleep or talk about surf and travels. This place had one of the best vibes of all the hostels I've stayed at.

The hostel was close to the centre and the supermarket and not far from beaches.

"Tolles Gesamtpaket"

Das Hostel ist mit Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet und sehr sauber. Eine Reinigungskraft kam täglich. Die Organisation der Surf-Lessons lief einwandfrei und wir hatten viel Spaß mit den kompetenten Surf-Lehrern. Das Gesamtpaket hat gestimmt, auf jeden Fall weiterzuempfehlen!

"It’s all about the experience "

I really enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. The surfing classes were a bit chaotic which for me added to the experience. In a positive way. It forces me to stay in the ‘I’m on a holiday’ mode. The yoga classes where very well organised and I felt comfortable even though I don’t practice yoga much.
