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.
