About Paintshop Hostel

Just 10 mins walk 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, comfy beds, hot & powerful showers, fully stocked Sports bar, beer garden, internet cafe, laundry facilities, bike hire, surf lessons and surf rentals. Since its new management in 2010, the Paintshop Hostel & Bar has become known for its friendly welcome, laid back atmosphere, relaxed and chilled vibe, excellent facilities and easy access to the local surf and night spots!

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 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 (starting from 290€) which include 7 nights accommodation, surf lessons, board & wetsuit hire and much more.

WARNING - 1 night will not be long enough!!
