The place is nice and well organized. You will find many goodies in the fridge for you breakfast. The dorms are clean and there are curtains in every lower bunk bed that enable you to hide away while sleeping (a feature most hostels simply miss to offer). Most important, however, is the atmosphere in the hostel. The owner gives you...

The hostel itself is not the prettiest but very cozy. We had a private room which was very clean and next to the kitchen. I guess if there are some noisy guests people might feel annoyed but we had no issues. The location is OK because the village is not that big. The highlight of the hostel is its owners....

Glauco is the best host you could imagine. When arriving at west hostel, I was the only guest - but he made me feel so welcome! Tons of tips about what to do, a barbecue, a lesson in portuguese salad preparation, portuguese drinks - I got it all. Thanks Glauco, for the awesome time! I can definitely recommend west hostel...

Spent two nights at the Hostel West in Peniche, great experience, the staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. They have a well equipped kitchen, with evertything you need to cook your own food, plus they have an inside and outside common "chill out area" which is very cozy. If you...

We spent three days in Peniche during our trip in Portugal and we left our hearts in Peniche. Staying at West Hostel isn't so much as staying in an hostel but rather spending a few days at a mate's place. Glauco is a fantastic host, he provided us with a detailed map of Peniche and even offered to arrange surfing...

We spent a weekend in the West Hostel in Peniche as part of an inter-rail trip around Portugal last Summer and of all the hostels we stayed in, despite being slightly smaller, it had an an atmosphere and ambiance that no other hostel could match. Rather then focusing on having mod cons like televisions and lots of computers, the emphasis...

Charming hostel close to surfing beaches, supermarkets, town, market...It is super clean with a nice terrace and couch where you can mellow out. The kitchen is well equipped and breakfast table is set ready for everyone in the morning. The owner is very accommodating and goes beyond his means to assist you, always interested in getting to know the guests....

We came to the hostel one day earlier before our reservation and the owner fixed us a room quickly even though it was fully booked according to the internet, which was a very nice gesture from him. The owner seems like a genuinely friendly guy. The place felt really cozy and most of the other guests seemed like they had...

We stayed in West hostel with my friend last September. The location of the hostel is good, not far from the beach and very close to the shop. The guys running the place are really kind and relaxed, so were the rest of the people staying in this place (although they were few years younger than us).

“We stayed in a double room with a private bathroom. I saw there is one room with the windows to the street, but we stayed in the room on the other side of the house, next to the balcony, where you can dry up your wetsuit. If you like you can choose from a dorm as well.”
