    Not a surf camp

    CONS Cons: I booked this vacation especifically with the intention to kite surf for a week. I have been to surf camps before and know schools shich organize them and when it is stated that the equipment is included it is usually meant for the whole duration of the camp, ergo the name "camp". In this case, the vacation includes 6 hostel nights, 2 days lessons, and no equipment throughout the week (only during the lessons). This means that you are stuck in one city in Portugal for a whole week, not kite surfing. This was misleading for me and other customers whom I spoke to. Moreover, if you are a beginner with some experience you can only kite in a location which is really far from the hostel, so you have to pay an additional 25 euros for a transfer every time you want to take the lesson. Moreover, we had an issue regarding a refund due to an accident and we tried calling book surf camps. The person at customer service kept us waiting for hours, so what should've taken perhaps slightly more than an hour ended up taking around 5 hours to solve, making me waste half a day further. The staff at the hostel was quite helpful so we were able to come up with some solutions but the vacation ended up being completely different than what was expected, and numerous hours of my vacation were wasted trying to fix this. I would, nonetheless, recommed the hostel. It's staff, location, breakfast and facilities were quite satisfactory.

    PROS Pros: Good customer help by stadd at the hostel.

    Kitesurfing Camp

    CONS Cons: Lessons were not arranged when we arrived and we had to contact the school ourselves. Transfers to a beach were not included, and we had to pay extra. If it was explained in the offer, we would have known what to expect. Luckily, everything was sorted out very fast. The quality of teaching was very high and a kiting spot was gorgeous.

    PROS Pros: Kitesurfing school was perfect. We learned a lot in a very short period of time. I've already recommended it to others.

    "The staff and the owner at Ljmonade are like family. I was taken care of in the best possible way. I felt at home. Valentina, Ana and the gang treated me like a guest in their home. Loved the warmth and genuineness of the staff at Ljmonade. The breakfast was lovely. Loved the pancakes. The rooms were clean, the bathroom was cleaned everyday. I would recommend Ljmonade to first time travellers or anyone who wants to connect with people or stay on your own. Kudos Ljmonade Team. You have a fan and a loyal customer. I'm coming back for more of your great hospitality. Keep the love and beautiful positive energy flowing. I'm big on exceptional customer service.

    "As a guest for a few months, I loved the accommodation, the workers (Diana, Inês, Max, Nathalia, Kateryna, and Thiago), and the warm family feeling. It is only 10 minutes' walking to downtown, 30 or 40 minutes by train to Lisbon, and is truly a heaven on earth."

    "The staff, Ines, Catia, and everyone else, were so welcoming, kind, and helpful. Great thought and care have been put into Ljmonade Hostel. It seems that everything that a guest might need is there, a constant supply of tea and coffee, freshly made waffles for breakfast, good Wi-Fi, washing line, outside area for relaxation, and quiet sitting-rooms. I will certainly be coming back to Ljmonade Hostel for my next Lisbon visit. It really feels like "home". Massive thanks to all the staff!"
