"Best experience in Europe."

I had the best time ever during my stay at Ericeira Chill Hill Hostel. Adrianna, Pedro and Ines were absolutely incredible. They made me feel like I was at home and were beyond helpful and accomodating. The hostel was clean, tidy, and the free breakfast was perfect before a surf. The surf lessons were also incredible João was awesome and taught me so much. You can tell he is knowledgeable and passionate. I couldn’t recommend this experience enough! I Definitely want to come back and do it again.

"Chill Hill Hostel & Surflessons"

The atmosphere was so nice at Ericeira Chill Hill. It was my best hostel experience so far. Pedro and the whole team were so nice to us and the rooms were good as well. Also, the vibe of the hostel was really good and attracted lots of open minded backpackers. Will definitely come back.

P.S. The surflessons at WeSurf were also really good. Ricardo and João were great surf instructor and I learnt a lot during my stay.

"Surf experience was amazing, hostel had bed bugs "

I loved the lessons and how well the instructor Joao taught us all. He was patient and informative, worked with a large group of beginner to intermediate surfers individually while still keeping an eye on all of us as a group. He challenged me at each lesson and I learned a lot. I had the time of my life learning to stand and catch a wave and would recommend these guys any day! I greatly appreciated his sense of humor and patience and ability to explain things in a way we all understood. Thank you Joao and Ricardo!!!! You and the lessons were the highlight of my time in Portugal!

"A really chill hostel, with awesome surf lessons"

Just spending a week here, learning how to surf as an absolute beginner was awesome. Staff was extremely helpful and just overall generally friendly and I would have loved to stay longer. The surf lessons, 5 in total, were 2 hours each. Everything was provided, boards, wetsuits, boots etc. You just get picked up at the hotel at the set time and then go out to the beach to learn how to surf! Instructors had very chill vibes, all of them super experienced and able to relate that experience to absolute newcomers like me as well. It was beautiful.

"I didn't want to leave"

I really enjoyed my November/December 3 weeks stay at Chill Hill. The hostel was clean and comfortable and the staff was absolutely lovely. Every day was served a rich buffet breakfast. The accommodation is a few minutes walk from the picturesque centre of Ericeira. The lessons take place at a gorgeous beach and are led by friendly, professional and patient instructors that do their job with enthusiasm and are good at motivating. I definitely recommend this experience.

Thank you!

"Best teacher in town"

Above all the surf experience was adequate to the surf level and learned a lot. This thanks to João who is an incredible teacher and take his job seriously which is rare in town. Its not only about making a line and pushing you on the board.

I am happy.

Thank you again.

"I will definitely be back!"

The experience was positive. The surf lessons were well organized and suitable for all levels. I took lessons with all the teachers, and they all proved to be professional and attentive to the single needs of the surfers.

The people I met and the Chill Hill staff were always friendly and willing to help you when needed.

I hope I can repeat the good experience

"Tolle Erfahrung und familiärer Atmosphäre"

Das Hostel ist sehr gemütlich und familiär. Wir hatten ein kleines Problem mit einem Mitbewohner, das Personal hat uns sofort ernst genommen und das Problem war bis Ende des Tages gelöst. Die Surfstunden waren auch toll, besonders unsere erste Stunde bei Sonnenuntergang. Nach 5 Tagen konnten wir die ersten Wellen völlig ohne Hilfe surfen. Zum Strand und zurück gab es einen Transfer, für den Preis mehr als ich erwartet hatte! Wir hatten eine absolut tolle Zeit!
