This is a fun hostel, but it is not a madhouse. We are not Party Central. You're never far from a great party in Lagos, but following it up with a good night's sleep in a relaxed and serene environment is priceless. That is what you will get at Gold Coast.

The Double rooms (exclusive for couples) have the same facilities as dorms, but they are located in our second building, 40 meters away from the main Hostel. Check-ins are at the given address.
Please note: Children or any person under 18 years old are not allowed. Thank you.

The Gold Coast Hostel welcomes you with our chill atmosphere and relaxed vibe. We have several types of rooms with air conditioning. Each room is made for 1, 2, 4, 6 or 8 people. The Hostel provides free individual safes. Breakfast included (light continental breakfast).

Main check-in time is between 12 PM and 12 AM. No access to our premises before 12 PM.
Payment is in cash upon arrival.

A large kitchen is available for guests use. You can enjoy and drink in our terrace with town views. Not to mention the common room. There is also a barbecue and fun for everybody. And for our guests, free broadband and WiFi Internet access.

Come for our Sangria tasting evenings and other surprise specials.

Specials:
We make bookings for transfers from Faro Airport to Lagos and from here to there. Suitable for small or bigger groups. A 48 hours advance booking is desirable. Please contact us right after your booking is done.

The town:
We are in the heart of Lagos, a small laid back town, famous by its good vibe and party atmosphere, not to mention the warm and sunny days. Here you'll find top quality beaches with their clear sands and clean waters.

Our coast has great quality of air and seawater hard to find elsewhere in Western Europe. Lagos has also an interesting historical heritage. If you are experiencing Spain & Portugal, travelling here its definitely a must, since Lagos has the perfect atmosphere for everybody.

Some activities:
We are located in a area which has marvellous conditions and multiple choices on Surf, windsurf, kite surf, sailing, kayaking, microlight flight, jogging, horse riding, safaris, sea faris, grottoes trips, fun parks, water parks, big game fishing, dolphin watching and much more!!
Our team has experience in promoting accommodation and working with tourists who enjoy outdoor and sportive activities, such as Surf in the West Coast and much more. Check details with us when you arrive for the check-in.

Portugal is easier if you are in a budget since most supermarket food and beverage is cheaper then in most western European countries. You can also get food out in lots of places.

At Gold Coast we help you with any information you might need about Lagos and area and also about other great places in Portugal, what to see, how to get there, bus and trains timetables and more.

For those hardcore parties looking to live it up like a rock star and have the best week you'll never remember, we strongly suggest that you book one of the other places in town who specialize in creating that type of atmosphere. You're never far from a great party in Lagos, but following it up with a good night's sleep in a relaxed and serene environment is priceless. That is what you will get at Gold Coast.

Private rooms have the same facilities as dorms, but they are located in our second building, 40 meters away from the main Hostel. Check-ins are at the given address. If they are not available, contact us for more options.

Coming from Faro or Lisbon you can take either a bus or a train. They run several times a day, being even more frequent on the summer and on weekdays. Coming from the north of Portugal, you'll go to Lisbon first and then directly to Lagos.

Coming from Spain: you can go to Seville and take a direct bus to Lagos. Sometimes you may get a bad info in Spain about this. Some people don't realise there is a direct bus and they will inform on alternatives which are time consuming and not necessary since you can take the bus in Seville (Plaza de Armas station). The buses to Lagos run twice a day, on a daily basis (this can vary depending on the time of the year).

Flying to Faro Airport: you can take a taxi or a bus to Faro downtown where you'll find both the train and bus stations almost side by side. As mentioned above, you can use one of those to get to Lagos.

The Gold Coast is close to the Lagos main public transportation, such as bus and train. About 10 to 15 minutes walking distance.

By train:

Walk through the Marina, cross the suspension bridge and turn left to the main avenue (Descobrimentos Avenue). Continue down the main avenue, you should pass a Repsol Gasoline Station on your right hand side. Continue on for a minute and you will pass a fish market, taxi stand and post office (on a commercial street). Then, there is a small square with a funny statue in the middle. (Attention please: don�t walk to much on the main avenue or you�ll get to a big square with another statue far from us and you�d have to return).
From there (small square), enter Rua (street) Garrett towards the next little square. You will see at one corner a snack bar named �Cavaleiro�. Enter the long street around the corner from it (Rua C�ndido dos Reis) and go up the hill. Turn the 4th to the right, which is exactly our street �Gil Vicente�. You'll find us at the number forty-eight.


By bus (except for the Renex bus):

Leave the bus station towards the river and turn right into the main avenue (Descobrimentos Avenue). Continue down the main avenue, you should pass a Repsol Gasoline Station on your right hand side. (Start here, please, if you arrived on RENEX bus). Continue on for a minute and you will pass a fish market, taxi stand and post office (on a commercial street). Then, there is a small square with a funny statue in the middle. (Attention please: don�t walk to much on the main avenue or you�ll get to a big square with another statue far from us and you�d have to return).
