Big Chill is a Hostel made by backpackers for backpackers. It's more than you would ever expect, it's unique, and it's different because we want to offer you your home away from home with our homely feel and the best social vibe.

We are located right in front of one of the top ten beaches in Europe Praia Dona ANA, just one minute away from paradise.

We recently renovated our hostel with a brand new Lounge and a great outdoor terrace with plenty of space for everyone! We have 2 massive kitchens and one top roof terrace for those special BBQs and plenty of outdoor space everywhere.

Every night of the week there is something going on around the hostel, such as:
Our Famous Shisha nights on the terrace
Popcorn & Dive inn movies with plenty of selection
BBQ parties, Games & social events
Darts and kicker competitions,
The Backpackers Big Night Out (Free Pub Crawl) (Wednesday and Saturday)

There is always something happening at the BIG Chill! We have awesome tours and deals at the hostel, from:
Surf, wind surf, kite surf, wake board lessons
Bike hire, Kayak tours
Boat trip/parties, Jeep safaris
Climbing, adventure sports
City tours and beach tours
Theme Parks, Water Parks
The list is never ending

You can also choose to take the Bus or Train from Faro to Lagos.

From Bus/Train Station (On Foot):
Once you arrive in Lagos, follow the main avenue along the river towards the city fort, once you pass the fort going uphill, you will have a fire station on your right side. After the fire station keep following the main road for a few meters and take the set of stairs left on the road before the bridge to “Estrada da Ponta da Piedade” and follow the road straight up until “Praia Dona Ana”. Once you see the beach “Praia Dona Ana” on the left, Big Chill is just on the right side slightly up the road.
Also you can get a Cab/Taxi from the station for as little as 5.00€ or 7.00€, but ask in advance to avoid any disappointment.

By Car (From the Motorway A22):
Take the exit that says “Lagos/Vila do Bispo”. On the second roundabout take the 2nd exit to Lagos direction. On the next roundabout follow straight till you see the traffic lights. From there until the next roundabout, at the roundabout take the first exit and follow the street all the way down onto the end and take a right in “Estrada da Ponta da Piedade”. Follow the road up and once you reach the beach “Praia Dona Ana” Big Chill is on your right side slightly up the hill.
