About Us

Hostel do Mar and Studio do Mar is a small family-run accommodation which was fully renovated and opened its doors in August of 2016.

Matteus is the main boss of the business, he is now six years old. He loves people and enjoys helping, he speaks Portuguese and Norwegian with a hint of English, and his favourite task is untidying. Santiago is the CEO, he is almost four, and has the greatest smile. We also have Pedro, father, Portuguese, pulling all the strings behind the scenes in the hostel. Pedro does all kinds of things; emails, check-in, cleaning, making beds, fixing and maintaining, but his favourite task is talking. Ask him about anything, Pedro knows the area very well, and helps out with all kinds of outdoor-surf-windsurf-walking-cycling-related-queries. Last piece of the family is Kirsti, mother, Norwegian, working as an architect, and therefore only helping around the hostel every now and then. Kirsti designed the hostel, including the custom-made furniture. Her favourite task is creating.
Welcome to Hostel do Mar & Studio do Mar, we hope you feel at home!
