A social hostel in the city center with plenty of amenities
Rua da Clemencia, 9 ,
Figueira da Foz
The Paintshop Hostel is the 1st hostel in Figueira da Foz. It was created by backpackers for backpackers. The property is just ten minutes walking distance from the train and bus stations, Europe's widest beach, and nightlife options. The hostel aims to meet every need with a fully equipped kitchen, DVD lounge, comfy beds, hot and 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 nightlife spots. Close to all the bars, clubs, casino, restaurants and beaches, it's a great option along the journey between Porto and Lisbon. The facility was created with the Traveler and Surfer in mind, and recently revamped in 2013, the Paintshop offers budget accommodation with private double/twin rooms and two, four or six bed dorms, with free breakfast and free internet/WiFi. You can cater for yourselves in the well-equipped kitchen or fill up on delicious local fish (peixe), meat (carne) and wine (vinho) at the many nearby bars and restaurants. 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.
