ThThe Paintshop Hostel is Figueira da Foz's 1ST and BEST international Backpackers, located in a traditional Portuguese town house, lovingly created with the Traveller and Surfer in mind! A stone's throw More from the bars, clubs, casino and blue flag beaches of Portugal's popular Atlantic surfing resort. We offer cosy private rooms and 2, 4 or 6 bed dorms with FREE BREAKFAST & INTERNET/WIFI. You can cater for yourselves in our well-equipped kitchen or leave the cooking to us on our weekly BBQ and Pizza Nights whilst you relax in the courtyard with a cold Superbock or Cocktail from our private bar.Feeling adventurous? Let us organise surf lessons or equipment rental for you, or horse-ride and cycle through the beautiful local landscape. Prefer kayaking along the Mondego River, no problem! If the only work on your mind is working on your suntan then relax at the nearby beach or swimming pool.Whatever your passion let us fill your holiday with great memories!Life's a Beach so come to Europe's widest and look no further for a place to stay.
