Located in Famara, it is not that touristy, which imho is a good thing. Surf house was great. Just the usual hostel, all the necessary basics are there, lots of sand in the apartment (duh), but gets cleaned by the awesome cleaning girl on a daily basis. Met a lot of russian people, Americans, Norwegians, and other insane members of society. Had a great time surfing, relaxing & chilling out with people in general. Beach is about 10 minutes walking, should be doable with a hardboard (and otherwise you can just leave your board at the surfshop which is closer by the beach). I'd recommend renting a car for some variety in your surfing spots (Harrieta was the best surfing experience), as well as to see some sights, although Lanzarote is mostly desert and the landscape may look more like Mars. But hey, who cares; you've got sunshine and sea all around. Hostel was also dead cheap. Really friendly people. Bars are dead cheap, maybe dated interiors or one of them (sunset) smelling like a men's urinal, but again, they serve their purpose well.
