We are a backpackers hostel and surfcamp in Lagos in south west 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.

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. Our roof terrace is a great place to chill with a book, and you can also join our regular sunrise and sunset yoga sessions - great views for zenning out!  We also have a kitchen where breakfast (it’s free!) is served every morning, including our famous banana pancakes, and you can prepare your own food, but don’t forget to join us for our great family dinners prepared by our in-house chef, all fresh and locally sourced.

Some of the highlights of the Bura Surfhouse take place in our pool bar where you can enjoy a cold beer, one of our creative but always refreshing ‘cocktails of the week’, great food, and the chance to get to know the staff and your fellow guests.  We love getting to know all of you and hope you will feel at home with us.  

Our bar is a chilled out environment to enjoy a few drinks with new friends after a day getting exhausted in the surf or just lying in the sun.   It closes each evening at 10.30pm when the party shifts into town so we can respect our neighbours and those who are getting up early.

While we definitely enjoy a few beers and a mojito or two (or five!…), and we love to take all our guests on a great night out, we are not a wild party hostel and our ethos is about showing you there is a lot more to Lagos than the inside of a bar–so please bear this in mind when choosing to book with us.

Please note:
Bura Surfhouse we have a strict over 18 policy.
We have a dog, so please take this into account if you suffer from pet allergies!

"What a great hostel!"

"I spent two weeks at Bura! I definitely loved Lagos, but staying at Bura was one of the best decisions! They helped us with everything we needed, making our holidays...Did I mention the awesome staff?? Love them all."


"“Best 'effin' place ever!”"

"Bura is the best place I have ever stayed! In over 30 countries I have never felt so at home. Family is an understatement... I felt closer to the Bura family than I do my own... Do yourself a favor and stay here, even if its just for the people! I love it and will, for sure be back!"
