Lagos is one of the more popular destinations in the Algarve, known for its dramatic seaside cliffs, deep blue coast, and a plethora of restaurants and bars. It is also one of the most sought-after destinations in the country by visitors looking to get their party on, and the following hostels and guest houses are known for helping visitors get that party started.
If you want a spot with a homey feel, JJs Yard may be the right one to choose. Raving reviews on TripAdvisor boast the guesthouse’s maintained appearance and equipped facilities but also the friendly and fun atmosphere. Run by a local couple, Jay and J. Lorena, the facility is filled with personal touches and they organize events to help guests enjoy the area too, including bar-hopping nights and booze cruises. As with the other accommodations in the area, the prices will vary by season and in the low season (primarily winter), JJs Yard becomes more of a relaxing spot sought by travelers looking more for surf and relaxation.
A hostel with a name that sparks snickers is a good place to start when searching for a party spot. Cue The Rising Cock! Owned and run by Portuguese-American brothers, The Rising Cock is designed like a welcoming, party-loving, boozy family and previous guests seem to have plenty of positive reviews to offer. One of the top activities is a booze cruise around Lagos’s coast. Since life isn’t all fun and games, however, the Rising Cock does their part to make the world a better place, from green initiatives to social commitments.
Sometimes, girls just wanna have fun… without guys around. That’s why the owners of The Rising Cock created The Hen House, Portugal’s first all-female hostel. It’s just a few minutes’ walk from The Rising Cock hostel, where guests of the Hen House have full access to those facilities too, and it’s close to major restaurants, bars, and the local beach.
