“Great hostel tucked away. Ideal for a surfing weekend.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013 via mobile

Stayed here with quite a few friends for the weekend in Biarritz.

It is minutes from the airport in a taxi and we had a nice welcome from the staff when we got there.

Jono and all the staff were very helpful and welcoming. We were given maps with bar locations, restaurants and places to avoid, directions to both beaches too.

The surf boards and bikes came in very handy as we tried our hand at surfing. The beach and town is a 20 minute walk, all down hill and not very strenuous. It's a little bit trickier getting back as there are not many taxis about and after being on the beach all day it can be a bit of hard work walking back.

Breakfast was served each morning between 8:30 and 9:30 and was varied too. A great way to start the day.

We took all of the bikes out on one of the days, rode them in to town and locked them up, then cycled back after surfing all day. A great idea and a nice touch for the hostel to have this in place.

If I was going back to Biarritz with friends or for some surfing, I would definately stay here (if Jono will let me ;-) ). If this was a weekend away with my wife, I'd probably stay a bit closer to town, but with friends and for surfing, it's pretty perfect.

Stayed for three nights at Surf Hostel Biarritz after reading the other great reviews on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint.
Jono and the other staff are so hard working and friendly and helpful.
The breakfasts are delish, better than any restaurant, and set you up for a morning of surfing. Having free boards and bikes is also brilliant!
15-20 min walk from either Grand Plage or plage de la cote de basque.
Great gang of like-minded people both working and staying there, overall fabulous experience. Would go back in a flash! Thanks Jono and co!

Such an amazing place with amazing staff! Jono, CJ, Josh and the crew made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. Jono's breakfast's were unreal and set us up perfectly for an adventure filled day in Biarritz. The bike hire that is included make the journey to the beach super quick and accessible. Place is clean, beds are comfy and atmosphere was chilled and relaxed. If you come to Biarritz it's the only place to stay!

Couldn't have been better. Staff were very friendly and helpful, rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast served each morning was delicious. It was also great to have bikes and surf boards supplied.

We had an amazing time at the Surf Hostel in Bidart.
Very friendly and welcoming staff, very clean, only 10 guests in the house so felt like being at home and everyone gets to know each other, good atmosphere, relaxing, great location, and nice to be just outside very busy Biarritz. There are 2 beaches about 5 minutes walk with very good surf schools (we went to Bidarteko - highly recommended). All the facilities are close by and if you want a bit more of a nightlife then the bus is free to Biarritz (about 10 min to the centre of Biarritz). Included in the price is a hot breakfast every morning and we got a different dish every day. You can also easily get to St Jean de Luz or San Sebastian from there as well if you want to surf and do a bit of sightseeing.
We will definitely go again!!

Room Tip: 3 rooms: - 2 rooms x 4 people (Garden and Mountain Rooms) - 1 room x 2 people (Sky Room)

Jono and the rest of the guys made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. I'd booked the hostel for 14 mates and nothing was a problem. The place is very clean and well equipped. The breakfasts were also well worth getting up for. Serious value for money. They also chuck in surf hire for free which is a nice touch. If you're looking for a relaxed/chilled place to crash in Biarritz- look no further. Jono's knowlege of the town is also great for people new to the area!

A bunch of us stayed at The Surf Hostel for a weekend of surfing in Biarritz and found it to be absolutely perfect for what we were after, with great bonuses thrown in. Jono and his team were very welcoming and extremely helpful and happy to give us the lay of the land and tell us where we should go. The breakfasts which were cooked for us each morning were wonderfully varied but all delicious - so much better than the all day, every day cooked breakfast you might expect. Was excellent value for money and hassle-free to have bikes and boards thrown in. The location was perfect for us too - not too far from the airport but still only a pleasant and easy stroll in to town. Even the after-stay-support was excellent: when I left a jacket there, Jono was extremely helpful in getting it sent back to me, the next day, free of charge. Great hostel, great team, great weekend had by all.
