Bura Surfhouse: More Than Just A Backpackers Hostel In Lagos, Portugal

Bura Surfhouse: More Than Just A Backpackers Hostel In Lagos, Portugal

Bura Surfhouse, in Lagos, Portugal, felt like more than just a place to sleep. It felt like a community of friends. The staff was so welcoming, and gave great suggestions on what to see and do everyday. They were some of the friendliest staff I’ve ever met at a hostel and went out of their way to make sure that I had a great stay.

The common room was comfortable and felt like hanging out in someone’s living room.  The kitchen was great for cooking meals, and there was a huge grocery store that is only a five-minute walk away. Bura Surfhouse also made fresh pancakes for breakfast every morning and served coffee, milk, and juice.

I had a huge bedroom with was bright, airy, and comfortable. I stayed in the Beach House room which had a lovely blue and white theme.  Bura Surfhouse has a choice of both twin rooms and dorms for your stay. (I will mention that people who don’t want to experience the nightlife of Lagos, will probably not get a full night’s sleep at Bura Surfhouse. The partiers who come back between 3-5 AM can be quite loud when they return.  However, one nice thing is that Bura Surfhouse is not a wild party hostel, and they do try to keep the noise down.)

I loved the balcony right outside my room which was  a great place to relax.

The shared bathrooms were kept clean, which isn’t always the case at most hostels.

Of course, the highlight of Bura Surfhouse was the swimming pool. And, if you came for the beaches, they are only a twenty-minute walk away.

There was a rooftop bar and lots of activities like BBQ nights, pizza nights, and live concerts. I loved that Bura Surfhouse also offered beach trips, hiking trips, paddle-boarding lessons, and plenty of other activities, to fully explore the area. Don’t miss the hiking adventures to the remote parts of the stunning West Coast.

I also really appreciated the free pick-up and drop-off from the bus station.  It was so nice not to have to walk to the hostel with all of my luggage.
