Linda and David were super helpful all the time. Breakfast was lovely and we felt like home during our stay. The house offers plenty of facilities for surfer practitioners. You will want to stay longer than planned!

Such an amazing experience staying here, couldn’t have asked for more friendly or hospitable staff. Outstanding location which is within walking distance of a supermarket, loads of surf/hire shops, at least 5 surf breaks and many bars, cafes and restaurants making the night life pretty suburb. The hostel was in excellent condition and was always clean, the people staying and...

We stayed there for only two nights (unfortunately :D) and everything was perfect! It began with the free lift from Peniche bus station and continued with a warm welcome from Linda who showed us around the hostel. It was very very clean and the garden and the rooftop terrace were perfect for having a meal or just relaxing. The staff...

I had 6 days booked at Captain's, but would have stayed much longer if I could. The area of Baleal is amazing and a surfers paradice. Just around the corner you find Peniche and so many beautiful local experiences, including the Island of Belenga. Captain's log House was not just my base during my stay, but a place I felt...

For a surfing trip on my own I went to Baleal. I planned to stay only a couple of nights in Captains Log House, but it was so good that I stayed there for two weeks! The people, the ambiance, the house itself, the surf, the small cosy village Baleal, it was all perfect! Super easy to meet new people,...

I had a really great time at the Captain's Log House! Even though my friend missed her flight and I unexpectedly ended up being on a solo trip I never felt alone for a second (I stayed a week).

I stayed here for 9 nights in mid-April. Highlights included the free pick up in Peniche, the excellent free breakfast, the pool table downstairs, secure garage for storing bikes/surfboard/wetsuits, super friendly staff, clean rooms, BBQ and a great price. It's quite a small place so there's a really homely atmosphere. I'll be coming back to Baleal in the summer and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Captain´s Log House is a recently built beach hostel / surf lodge intended to accommodate people from all over the world. Is owned and run by travelers for travelers. There are more than 5 surfing spots at walking distance. Captain´s Log House has a unique decoration design, and a wonderful friendly atmosphere. Guests can cook and eat together. Someone travelling alone can do friends here. There is a particularly fabulous fresh grass smell, and it is very relaxing to lay down on the grass at the sun, after surf/stand up paddleboard (or other ocean sport). Upon request there are yoga/pilates/massages, etc in the garden. The beach is in the back of the house, so you can listen to the relaxing sound of the ocean every night. Or you can delight with the beautiful sunsets seen from the house balconies. ... more   less
