The Paintshop Hostel is the 1ST and BEST hostel in Figueira da Foz, created by backpackers for backpackers. Just 10mins walking distance from the train & bus stations, Europe's widest beach & nightlife we've got everything you need for a comfortable and fun stay on this popular Atlantic seaside resort including: fully equipped kitchen, DVD lounge, hot & powerful showers, fully stocked bar, beer garden, internet cafe, laundry facilities and free parking. Since its new management in 2010, the Paintshop Hostel has become known for its friendly welcome, laid back atmosphere, relaxed and homely vibe, excellent facilities and easy access to the local surf and night spots!

Close to all the bars, clubs, casino, restaurants and beaches, it's the perfect place to break the journey between Porto and Lisbon. Lovingly created with the Traveller and Surfer in mind, and re vamped in 2013, we offer budget accommodation with private double/twin rooms and 2, 4 or 6 bed dorms, with FREE Breakfast & FREE Internet/WiFi.

You can cater for yourselves in our well-equipped kitchen or fill up on delicious local fish (peixe), meat (carne) and wine (vinho) at the many nearby bars and restaurants. Or leave the cooking to us on a Monday night and enjoy Homemade Woodfired Pizzas! Create your own pizza from a delicious array of toppings on a freshly made pizza dough base, and we'll cook it up in our own pizza oven! Wednesday night is our favourite night of the week... BBQ! An awesome spread of grilled meats, burgers, coleslaw, salads and potatoes. Everybody stuffs themselves full before heading out for a night on the town!

The newly refurbished Paintshop Bar and Beer Garden is a great place to kick back after a long day at the beach and make new friends. On Friday nights get ready for the 'Paintshop Bar Crawl' drinking cold Superbock and Vinho together in our courtyard before touring the best bars in town grabbing free shots along the way!

The Paintshop Bar has a Big Screen HD TV where we show all the major sporting events (including the 2014 World Cup Football Live Games) and hold our 'Hangover Sunday' Movie nights with free popcorn.

If you feel like staying in and relaxing we have heaps of DVDs and there is also satellite TV in both the hostel and the bar. We have an internet cafe where you can surf the internet, charge your iPod, upload your photos, print your travel tickets and skype family & friends. There's a pool table in the hostel too and a book exchange...so grab a book to take to the beach or for any long journey ahead.

No matter if you're alone or travelling in a group, make sure to ask about the large number of activities in and around the town. Kayaking, surfing, tennis, horse riding, 5-a-side football, scuba diving, chilling at the water park or sky diving, theres something for everyones taste! We also hire out mountain bikes for exploring the beautiful scenery, and skateboards to use in the local skate park.

Figueira da Foz is a Surfers Paradise - with uncrowded beach breaks and point breaks for 15km North and South along the coast, and here at the Paintshop Hostel we provide Surf Hire of wetsuits, bodyboards, longboards, Mini Malibus and short boards! Or if you're new to surfing, our experienced surf instructors will give you lessons for only €30 for 2 hours. For the really keen we have organised our 'Surf Camp' packages (from 299€) which include 7 nights accommodation, surf lessons, board & wetsuit hire and much more.

WARNING - 1 night will not be long enough!!

'Absolutely everything has been wonderful from the lovely welcome to the personal lift to the train station at the end of our stay. From the big things like good internet and amazing pillows + showers, to the little things like remembering everyone's names' - Anna and Ashley (Australia)

'Loved the laid back atmosphere, the surf and the Super Bock! Also cheers for all the where to eat and drink ideas. Will definitely be back' Tim and Andrea (Germany)

'A piece of home from home - you'll find it difficult to leave' - Emma (Australia)
