Hostel is just in perfect location - everything is very very close, like few minutes by walking to the ocean, shops, restaurant etc.

I enjoy the surf lessons - instructors are great, sometimes is in general too much people in the water which is bad, but it’s not instructors/hostel fault.

Having great time here, perfect for surfing:)

Everyone was super helpful!

"Perfect place to begin surf journey"

The common space/kitchen, the people I met, the instructors, the convenience and location, the transportation to and from airport/beach, the cleanliness

"Good for experienced surfers"

I liked the flexibility to use the board for all day. The surf camp offers the possibility to use the board, you rent for the 1.5h class. for all day. This means that you can walk 5/10 min to Praia do Sul to surf on your own. The other beaches are too far to walk but if you have a car you can easily move to nearby places.

I also liked that for the intermediate class, they scheduled the class according to the tide condition to get the best moment.

The kitchen is really good and well equipped and you have the Continente supermarket at 5/10 min walking distance.

They are pretty strict with cleaning the kitchen and the management of the fridge and food which is unusual but really positive.

The rental gear is pretty new.

The cafe nearby is great for breakfast and lunch.

"An absolutely amazing week "

Me and my friend did the 7 day/6 surf lessons/3 yoga lesson package and it was incredible!

The surf lessons were brilliant, and by the end we could both stand up and the beach that we were surfing on felt really safe and fun. The instructors gave personalised advice and were so patient and fun.

The yoga was great and we did aerial yoga and it was challenging and but really fun. Again the instructors were really lovely!

The accomodation and Ericeira was just beautiful and the people were amazing and welcoming. It's so close to Sintra and you can definitely do a day trip to Lisbon, if you wanted a break from the beach.

All in all, one of the best holidays I've been on and I'm already planning my trip back next year!

"Ericeira surf camp"

The surf camp was excellent. As soon as you arrive, Andrea or Ines welcome you and show you about the hostel and your room then fill you in about surfing times, etc. It's a really well run and friendly hostel. The welcoming nature of the staff really sets the mood for an open place where you can make genuine friends really quickly. The surfing is also a lot of fun. The teachers are extremely friendly and kind, and are generally excellent. After spending most of the first day falling off the board by the end of the next session I could stand up, and by the end of the third, I could reliably catch waves. It's genuinely the best feeling. Ericeira is a beautiful little town too and everyone is very friendly. Couldn't recommend this place more.

"Amazing Time"

The hostel stuff was really amazing, taking care of everything, arranging for lessons, transport, super helpful and just nice and kind, assisting with all the questions. This hostel seems to attract nice people because the atmosphere was just great. Instructors knew what they were doing making sure that no matter the weather conditions we still had fun and learned sth new. They were also super enthusiastic and encouraging making the learning really fun for everyone no matter the experience and level.

"Awesome everything!"

The people are so warm and welcoming. Everyone is so friendly and outgoing and there is always something to do at the hostel. It’s so clean and well taken care of and everyone puts in effort to keep it that way. The surf lessons are well organized and the instructors are all highly skilled and very good at sharing their knowledge! I would highly recommend to stay here as it’s a great deal for the experience of a lifetime.

from Germany, April 2023

I had a great time there, friendly staff and nice people to hang out :)


from Spain, April 2023

Surf instructors Guy and Ugo are really nice, I feel that I progressed thanks to them. It is also a good spot for surf beginners. The girls Andréa and Inès at the reception are welcoming. The atmosphere in the hostel is peaceful. There is a big kitchen, with everything to cook (there is a big supermarket less than 10 min walking from the hostel : Continente), a large room and a terrasse to chill. In the dorm of 6, the bed I had was confortable and there was no noise at night in the street. The localisation is perfect, close to the center of Ericeira and the first beaches (5 min walking). I felt super good there during 1 week, everybody was super friendly.

Made the amazing choice to join this 'retreat'. Note, you will be staying in a hostel that facilitates the surf classes and you can attend yoga classes in town. A lot of freedom en amazing atmosphere in the hostel! Well equipped kitchen and great quality classes, both surfing classes and yoga classes!

"Brilliant 4 days of fun! "

Clean,friendly chill hostel. - shout out to Nuno who kept me laughing the whole time and fully engaged with my teenage son so that by the last day his surf skills were much improved and he couldn’t stop smiling! Also host Mauricio and instructor Miguel (Hope I got all the names right!!) All the instructors and staff were super friendly and helpful and there to see you have a great stay!

Oh and the location And the Views!- 10/10!!

"Wonderful experience"

I spent 4 days at surfcamp55. The hostel is very clean and cozy, the company was just great, and the staff was always very kind and helpful. The surfing instructors really know how to make it amusing and memorable. In particular, I was lucly enough to be able to surf with Nuno for three days, and - along with the other guys- he really knows how to make your surfing skills improve, still maintaining a humble attitude and having a ton of fun. I really recommend this experience. Will be back for sure. Até logo

"Really great surf camp in Ericeira"

The surf lessons every day were really good. Miguel is a great teacher with a lot of patience. He is going to help you a lot no matter what level you are at, always giving you feedback and tips to improve, even when you make the same mistakes over and over. You will progress alot here!

The hostel has a great vibe, everyone is very friendly and everything is clean and new!

"Surf surf surf "

High quality surf training at many diff spots and conditions. Detailed explanation of the locations, breaks and a plan on what we would work on. Lots of filming with very thorough review of each session filmed or not.

Location was great. The Hostel was clean and comfortable. The people staying there were all very cool and respectful. Plenty of places inside and out to hangout. Not a party place and quiet at night which was great. Place has a cool surfer vibe.

All employees were great, responsive and look out for your interests. No complaints at all

They use WhatsApp to communicate. Contact before you go, especially if you have any questions. They will respond right away.


from Germany, September 2022

"Amazing Experience"

Hostel 55 is a super chill place with cool people coming from all over the world - people just starting to learn how to surf taking lessons as well as people who are already very good bringing their own gear.

Beds are comfy, communal areas nice to hang out and clean, kitchen basic, but everything you need there. No food is provided.

The beach is at 8 Minutes walking distance and so is the cute village of Ericeira (lots of shops, restaurants and bars).

The surf lessons were very good to. They take you by car to the best spot at the best time. Never more than 5 people to a group, often less.

The transfer from the airport worked well. (There is also a bus for 6€).

If you are looking for a fancy place (pool, roof top bar or such) this ist not it, but if you come to surf and hang with chill people this is for you!

I had a great time at Hostel 55 and will definately come back.

"Amazing place to spend a week for beginner surfers"

I wanted to learn surfing for my 28th birthday, and I couldn't have wished for a better place, it's a small hostel run like a family home, Mauricio and David were super helpful staff members. The instructors were amazing at their art. The location was super awesome 5 minute walk to village street and a beautiful sea view from the terrace.

This hostel made me fall in love with Surfing, Ericeira and Portugal. I will visit again.

"No better team to learn to surf with!"

If you’re serious about learning to surf, the intensive package is fantastic. The first session is what most people participate in. The instructors are very patient and are quick to get you in the water once they’ve covered safety and the basics for getting up on the board. You’re in a group of 3-5 people and you rotate through being put into the waves by your instructor. I had Miguel and Gabriel as instructors for my first sessions each day. They’re very patient and good at giving precise feedback after each wave.

The real highlights were the second sessions each day. Most people only surf once a day so I ended up with effectively a private lesson most of the time. I had Rafa as my instructor for my second sessions each day and he did an incredible job helping me understand the basics of how the tides and waves move. He really pushed me during those sessions, but it pays off. By the end of 4 days, I successfully caught my own deep water wave. I obviously still have a long ways to go, but these guys really made the initial experience worthwhile. I can’t wait to come back.

Separate from the surfing, Hostel 55 has a super friendly and helpful team. I stayed in a private room just down the street, but they always made sure I had everything I needed and coordinated for my airport transportation. The people that come through the house are all great, too. It’s a wonderful environment and community that I can’t recommend enough.

"Great experience and surf"

The best surf camp i have been so far. Great location and great vibe. The hostel is perfectly located and has a very good vibe.

Miguel, the surf instructor, was brilliant in that he was prepared, fun to be around, and always made us feel safe in the water.

"The hostel is lovely. Very clean. Good vibe. Lovely location"

Beautiful views to the sea. Close to lots of great restaurants. Surf lessons every day. Michel is an amazing instructor. Giving lots of good personal feedback. It’s good to go with a chilled out attitude as sometimes we had to wait on the beach for a while for the tide to come in and if the waves were messy we had to wait our turn to surf next to the instructor.


from Portugal, November 2021

"Hostel & Surfcamp 55 was better than expected"

The surfing teacher Miguel is super nice and very direct in his teaching method. Surfing groups are usually small (5). The hostel is small, which makes it more like a big family. Hostel staff is very nice and always trying to help. I will definitely return there!

Super Nice Vibe around and in the hostel, and the facilities were Great! The surfinstructors were also super Nice, but the website Said that it would be groups of max 6. Peopel, which was not the case…😅 A bit annoying and less time to each individual.

"good surf experience"

We had a brilliant teacher called Miguel Mira on our first day anad then another Miguel from Action Waves the rest of our week. Miguel was a great teacher in every way and always put our safety first. we had 2 girls aged 12 and 14 with us so he took extra care making sure they got a good experience. To add to his great skills he had a great sense of humour which we all appreciated :)

"Great vacation with amazing expierences"

The staff was very relaxed and nice. Everything is very basic and easy going. The people in the hostel were all very nice and everyone treated each other respectfully (no loud parties at night). There are many affordable restaurants within walking distance. The supermarket is also close by and one has a great kitchen to take care of themselves. From many rooms one can see the see and there are beaches within walking distance. Surf instructors were very nice and we had a blast with them. This was one of my best holidays I ever spend. I was totally stressed out from work and the place helped me to find balance again.

"Lovely place to meet new people and surf!"

Even though I was a total beginner I was taken care of so kindly! Both the hostel and the surf instructors were very down to earth, kind and professional. The safety was a high priority which for me meant a lot. I would defiantly recommend this hostel to a friend and might as well come back at some point. I had a lovely week in surf camp 55!

"Good for a short stay, not quite for a relaxing holiday"

Surflessons were nice, teachers were fun. Be aware that most of the beaches have rocks underneath, so you need to wear boots to surf. The transfer to/from the airport was quick, Goncalo made sure to go to a time that suits you. He was also available everytime you need something or have a question.

Guillaume Arnould

"Short but sweet stay"

I only stayed for 4 days but it was waay better than I expected.

The atmosphere is great all the staff are super friendly and helpful. All the facilities in the surf house are good and clean. There is no food provided, but there are plenty of restaurants around with amazing food.

The surfing lessons were excellent, Miguel and Hugo are great and have a lot of patience and will explain everything to you which is super useful if you are a beginner surfer like me :)

The other people who stayed in the surf house were super nice, we had a lovely house bbq together one night.

I recommend this to everyone who is looking for a great and chilled surfing experience and I will definitely come again(hopefully really soon :) )

"Amazing experience, highly recommended"

This experience was one of the best experiences in my life.

The hostel has such a nice vibe, people are super cool, Katherina is the sweetest receptionist I’ve ever met. Gonçalo is super cool and chill!

If you want to have an amazing time in Ericeira, this is the place to be. People staying there are friendly, fun, they know how to chill, and also how to party 🎉

The surf lessons are also incredible. Miguel is a great coach, patient (with me 😂), -funny, and really cool!

HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended!

"A great weeks surfing in Ericera"

A great team working in the hostel! From the moment I was greeted at the airport until I was dropped back I felt like I knew everyone already! The team here is very friendly and helpful. Our instructor Miguel really wanted everyone to learn and progress their surfing skills but most importantly he wanted people to have fun. Great week away and would recommend to friend's! Till next time

"Amazing experience in adorable place"

I had an outstanding experience there, everything was so cool!

The place by itself is very cozy, there're beautiful paintings in every room, each with it's own style. The kitchen/living room was a nice place to hang out and have warm talks with all the friendly people there.

Surfing experience was especially cool! Everything was well-organised according to the timetable, coaches (Miguel and Hugo) were very friendly and explained everything clearly.

I went to Ericeira Yoga studio, also enjoyed time there. I could choose which yoga I'd like to attend, so I had a possibility even to try Aerial Yoga, which was absolutely amazing!

Transfer was as agreed, Goncalo picked me up with his car, a bit later than I wrote but that wasn't a problem. We arrived fast to Ericeira having nice talks during the drive.

I would absolutely recommend this experience to everybody!

Darren Thompson

"All those good reviews are true!!!"

I was s complete surfer newbie and decided to come here based solely on online reviews. Best decision ever. The instructors are very knowledgeable but also care that you have fun and feel comfortable in the water, which I really appreciated. The vibe of the hostel and the town is magical. I loved everything and will definitely return like many others did.


from United Kingdom, September 2019

"Great vibe but weak organisation and transport breakdowns "

Such a great trip! I really enjoyed the accommodation and the communal areas. They have a very high standard of cleanliness and the look, layout and location of the place is very high. The surf beaches were great as well, consistent breaks for beginners and intermediate, once the camp gets started they’re consistently getting people’s surfing improved in each lesson. As one of the biggest companies in the area the camp also gets to use the better beaches for teaching during the high season

"Good vibes and a great place to chill out"

Everything about this place will give you good vibes. Great owners, awesome staff, super clean rooms and a fab chill out space.

The surf lessons, instructors and all that jazz were top notch and a great way to meet the other guests and have a laugh. A great holiday, thanks guys!!!

Do you want to learn how to surf well, while having great time in a friendly and funny environment? Then book your holiday in Surf Camp 55!! I had wonderful time in Hostel 55, so a huge thanks to Gonçalo and Andreia the lovely owners!

The kindness and smile of Dagy and Marijn will welcome you in a beautiful and artistic hostel, they are always available to help and very useful for making your stay cozy. The skill of the surf teachers: Miguel, Gonçalo, Joao and Hugo will help you to learn how to surf while having a lot of fun. Lessons are for every levels and held with great preparation, professionalisms and patience. To sum up an awesome team that will allow you to “stay, surf and relax”! Last but not least every room of the hostel (very clean) is a piece of art as they have different styles and are painted by a local artist. I highly recommend Hostel&Surfcamp55!!!!

"Great instructors for any level! "

The instructors were so good! They are real strict, which helps a lot to improve. I had surfed before and was worried about having to start all over again, but they perfectly adopt to ones needs and skills. I really enjoyed my surf classes a lot and also felt like I improved! I can totally recommend it for any surf level!

"Kind people, good vibes and nice place"

We spent one week to Hostel 55 and really enjoyed our stay ! Marijn welcomed us very well and was always sweet and very helping. The owner was also nice and always willing to find solutions and provide a good stay in her place.

Rooms have fun and nice decoration and it is close to the city center, yet not too close to avoid too much noise at night. Kitchen is shared and there is a terrace to meet new people easily and cook your own food. Surf instructors were always smiling and giving best advices to master the pop-up and make the most of our time in the water ! We would love to come back again and enjoy another Ericeira experience with crew 55 :)

I had a great time in Ericeira 🧘‍♂️🧘‍♀️💃

Gonzalo, the manager welcomes you at the airport with a cool surf look, hats and skatter short ...and very relax vibe. Very pro, he is on time and has great conversation.

Andreia, Gonzalo's partner and also co manager. It looks like, she always gets out of a meditation, yoga class...not only because of the look, legging and fitness outfits...but also because she is super kind and makes sure you have everything you need.

Great couple, great energy! they both speak perfect english.

Hostel 55 is great! the single "Pirates" room is great. While looking at the treasure map on the wall, you can look at the see view..🤩🤩

The collective kitchen is very practical. you can put your food in little boxes on the kitchen shelves, so everything stays in order.

Staff is great! Daggi and all the surf instructors team!

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! 😊

"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!

"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.

"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.

"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!

"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.

"Ericeira heaven"

Starting from the the amazing stay at the hostel 55 to all the people who worked there and the great vibe the place and people had . Ericeira itself is beautiful and the hostel too like the town itself is clean, airy and refreshing. Loved how lush everything was.
