"If you look for a party place - you are right here! :)"

x the initial surf lesson and the conditions/spot to learn surfing,

x the location of the accommodation, the hike trails,

x the nice young people (staff and guests) and to chat with them,

x the stuff was acknowledging their failures and trying to make it all right. (for example when somebody put cheese on the vegan hamburgers, they got me vegan sausages. :)

x although the given party circumstances the accommodation was held clean more or less.

"the best value for money that you can get "

The accommodation is great and clean, surrounded by nature and not too far from the beach where we surf. The food served was great and varied each day. All the team members working there are so friendly and welcoming that you feel like you are in your own house. Overall, as someone trying surfing for the first time, I really liked it and highly recommend it.

"Awesome vibes in a fun and very inklusive surfcamp"

The people at the surfcamp are very welcoming, you can do lots and lots of different things in Aia, from surfing to hiking around. Just about daily evening activities are planned that are voluntarily done. You can totally party there! The beach in Zarautz is great for beginners, but also for a bit more advanced people and the instructor was so helpful! Nora is a really great Organisator and you meet people from all over the world, that are also so helpful.

"Sitio muy sucio y alejado"

El sitio en el que está ubicada la casa, aunque no esté cerca de la playa, es precioso. En medio de la naturaleza

"Worst retreat ever"


Axel Verger

from France, August 2022


YOU SHOULD GO THERE if you mainly look for a place to party and enjoy included beer and sangria, and if you're good enough to surf by yourself.

People and staff are generally friendly and the view is beautiful.

"An interesting experience..."

We met some interesting people and the location of the hostel is stunning - up in the hills surrounded by greenery. The village (Aia) is beautiful and there was a lovely little cafe we went to. Time on the beach in Zarautz was also great. The one yoga class that took place was brilliant - I just wish it had happened as often as was promised. The surf class by Rachel was really helpful and fun.

The beach and area around

"Didn‘t learn how to surf/the vibe of the house was soo good"

It was really good. The people, the parties and the vibe itself was great. It was such a nice experience for us! If we‘d had known how to surf before, it would‘ve been even better :)

"A dream "

Everyone is so kind to each other. Ready for a chat, laugh, drink. I met so many amazing people at this hostel. Would highly recommend if you want to meet new people and be social. I would want to come back!

"A great place for surfing and plenty of fun"

If you’re looking for a laid back hostel with fun people and good surfing this is the place to be!

The hostel is not about luxury but has everything you need and this encourages the laid back vibes and attracts great people. The surfing lesson was great and the staff were so supportive over the week to help me improve my surfing.

people, surf, the house

Andrea Martínez Moreno

from Spain, September 2021

Los compañeros ha sido lo mejor del viaje, se crea un vínculo chulísimo por lo que vale la pena ir por muchas cosas a mejorar que tenga el campamento. El instructor de Surf es excelente y la gran mayoría de monitores són muy majos (no todos). Aunque nadie del personal tiene el Español como lengua materna, todos se esforzaban por comunicarse con nosotras en español ya que nuestro nivel de inglés es bastante malo. El menú es muy básico pero esta rico.

"Exellent chill and awesone surf spirit"

Amazing location in the small town in the mountains (remember that you don't have permanent acces to the beach), super people and nice climat, allso all inclusive package (10e a day for all you can drink) sounds good.

"Surf y fiesta todas las noches!"

Los organizadores son geniales y ayudan en todo lo posible a que haya un buen ambiente y que todo el mundo disfrute. El ambiente es muy hippie con gente de todo el mundo.

"Experiencia increible"

El surf camp es un sitio mágico. Te sientes arropado desde el primer momento, perfecto para viajar solo. Las clases de yoga y surf muy entretenidas con instructores simpáticos y agradables. Hay actividades todo el dia además de un increíble parque natural al lado y el pueblo, que es precioso. 100% recomendado

"Nice place to chill but can be much better "

J ai passé 4 jours agréables. L'auberge est située dans un lieu unique, dans l arrière Pays Basque avec une vue imprenable sur l'océan (magnifique). Tout le monde est adorable et accueillant. Cependant ça ressemble d'avantage à passer 4 jours chez une "bande de potes" que dans un hostel. Le prix est vraiment cher en comparaison avec la qualité du service rendu.

"More than just a surf camp"

First of all, as a beginner, I felt my instructor was very patient, and I had great experience of surfing, and I was under protected, felt safe. Apart from the surfing experience, the people there are so lovely, from the staffs to the guests. They arranged hiking, and took us out in the car to visit some places, and they took us to San Sebastian, we went to some cool places to have a little drink and pinchos. Comfortable and chill environment in the hostel. The food is decent. Had really good time there, sure will come back.

"An experience to avoid for the future"

The location, the people, the food

"Beautiful location and very friendly and welcoming hosts"

I loved staying at the surf house, Adam and Ben were super friendly and made me feel very welcome from the moment I arrived.

The schedule was flexible which suited me perfectly, I could drop in and out of the things that I wanted to do.

The surf lessons were great and I could stand up on the board after only a few days practice. They took us to several different beaches in the area, all beautiful.

The house itself is set in a lush green area with lots of trails to walk or run along. The whole area made me feel very relaxed

Maurice was a fantastic yoga teacher, very relaxed, gave lots of options for each pose depending on our level and was generally a really nice guy.

All the staff looked after us well with simple healthy food. I would definitely return :)

"Less than memorable surf camp experience"

Basically nothing

"Great experience"

I loved it. Everything about it. The people there, other visitors , surf and yoga lessons, food, beach... It was really relaxing and fun at the same time.


from Italy, August 2018

I liked the vibes.. The mood was the one of a real surf camp.. Wild and free. You feel home. You can meet people from allover the world and enjoy your time in many different ways.

"Everything was perfect"

The location was just unbelievably amazing and quiet, exactly what you would look for for a surf camp. Surfing was perfect, twice a day and the waves in Zarautz were really beginner-friendly and easy to catch. The guys made sure everything was well organized and they also took us to San Sebastian more then once at night and showed us cool places where to eat and drink that we wouldn't have found if we were on our own. The food was also always enough and with a great variety and good quality. I will def repeat my experience here

Andrea Witt

from Belgium, August 2018

Good location in the middle of a green area - excellent for hikes. They feed us continously with good food and the own bar with beer and sangria is cool. There is always a programme to participate in, but one is entirely free to choose what to do. Ideal for socialising and fully switching off from your everyday reality.

"Great experience!"

We had a great time in the hostel. People were very friendly, made friends quickly, the surfinstructors were good, the food was good and it was very flexible depending on what you wanted to do. The staff works hard to facilitate you well. Overall a great vibe and I would surely recommend it.

"San seb review"

Everyone at the surf camp were incredibly welcoming and easy going, I felt a part of the family as soon as I walked through the door! The house was an epic creation, props to the guys for making it such a sweet living space! Adam and Kayls were absolute legends, I can’t thank them enough for being so helpful and calming, and understanding when things are a little tough. The surf lessons were great, they catered for everyone’s ability and even when the conditions weren’t the best you’ve always still got the option to get out there and give it a crack. There was a perfect mix between relaxing and just hanging out, and then getting a bit roudy on some party nights. Epic experience! Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a bit of fun in Spain!

A very relaxed place - with fantastic views, and great hikes in the area. The food was gorgeous, and the surfing instruction was excellent.

Muy buen ambiente. Los días en la playa haciendo yoga y surf han sido geniales.

Julie Dubief

Les cours de yoga étaient supers rien à redire.

Les repas étaient globalement très bons bien que frugaux le midi or nous surfions le matin donc étions affamés.

L'ambiance était bonne et le site est bien car le village et la vue sont superbes.

"Dirty location, bad equipmet even worst instructors"

The party was the only good thing.

The stoke team with their energy and positive attitude.


from Spain, June 2017

The friendly nature, the feeling of not being treated as a customer but being part of a surfing gang and being able to share that first experience with other first timers who hot the waves. A wonderful experience and a marvelous memory to treasure
