Wonderful view, the rooms have a (shared) balcony on the ocean, simple furniture but clean and cozy. Staff super friendly and everything was perfect. Unfortunately at the first floor there is only one bathroom for 4 rooms. At the ground floor the 3 rooms have bathroom inside. We'll come back for sure!

The owners of the Blue Buddha were so friendly and hospitable. They arranged for us all to go out to dinner in a local restaurant on the second night, where they ordered local delicacies like gooseneck clams (so tasty)! Hostel was clean and had only two others staying in it at the time (offseason), so it was really comfortable and...

I have recently stayed in the hostel (room no. 3 - good one), the balcony view & location is amazing... Nathalia was really nice and helpful. We arrived at night and the worse thing was that on the booking there is different address, so we spent 30 minutes by calling with owners to find the way...and also asking 5eur for...

€ 90 for a room without a window to open during nights and asking €5 for borrowing a towel during the stay!? Nice and clean common-areas with a beautiful balcony on the seafront. Nice and helpful staff ( Nathalia ). Reception in another part of the village!? A great place for rich backpackers. Don`t ask for room 6! It`s just...

The views of the hostel are breath-taking, as good as any hotel overlooking the crashing surf. As soon as you get near your room you can hear the waves, its very cool. Its also impeccably clean and the hosts go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We had a brilliant time here and will definitely be back

The 10 bed-dorm is really big and nice, altough the showers aren't perfectly clean. The living room is very comfy and there is a balcony with a beautiful seaview! The hostel is central and everything is in walkable distance. I would go and stay at the Blue Buddha again! The staff is nice and welcoming and they do everything to...

We had a great week in Ericeira staying at the Blue Buddha. Miguel and Lucia are lovely hosts and create a really friendly atmosphere. They helped us sort transfers, surfing, SUP and even gave us a lift to yoga at Omassim. The surf school they work with (Ericeira Local) is really, really good. We paid a little extra for a...

When you are here, it feels like the nicest place on earth. Laid-back and relaxed, ocean-soaked atmosphere of it makes you feel at home. It is more of a beach house, then a hostel - the hosts have truly succeeded 100% with the concept of Home away from home. Ocean-front balconies, big luminous living room, nice spacious rooms - all...
