"First time travelling alone and first time in a hostel, I was nothing less than amazed"

We are a backpackers and surf hostel located in Lagos, a beautiful town in the Algarve region of southern Portugal. Whether you are holidaying with friends or travelling solo we offer a social accommodation experience, perfect for making new friends along the way.

We are located a 10 - 15 minute walk from the Lagos old town – close enough to the great beaches and nightlife Lagos has to offer, but with the emphasis on getting away from the crowded streets and just taking the time out to lie in a hammock by the pool – something you won’t find in any other hostel in Lagos - our location offers the best of both worlds.

Incredible beaches both in the south and west coast are in easily in reach.

We have great shared common areas to hang out with other guests; alternatively you can get out into the garden and get your tan on, or challenge someone to a game of ping pong.


"We had a great stay at Bura! Especially loved the pool and bar area"

Don’t fancy the beach – enjoy the Portuguese sun lounging by our pool, then take a dip to cool off when it gets too hot!

Roof Top

"sunset yoga at the rooftop terrace was amazing!"

Perfect for yoga, but also great at any time - to catch some rays, a bit of alone time, or to enjoy the beautiful sunset with friends.


"A nice crew hanging out in the hostel bar having a great time"

We offer fruit smoothies, delicious freshly prepared snacks, as well as all your favourite cocktails and the cheapest beers in Lagos!


"I met so many great people and had such a fantastic time that i would have happily stayed forever"

Our lounge is great for socializing, chilling, reading a book from our swap shelf, or maybe a nap on our insanely comfy sofa.


"Free breakfast always a bonus and the pancakes were great :)"

We serve free breakfast every morning, including our famous pancakes. You can also use the fully equipped kitchen to prepare your own meals and snacks or come together in the evenings and enjoy our locally inspired meals, freshly prepared by our in-house chef.

Please note: The kitchen is restricted between 6pm - 8pm to allow the evening meals to be prepared.

Evening Dinners

"The home made dinners are amazing with plenty of vegetarian options as well"
