Welcome to "The White Butterfly"!
Hostel "The White Butterfly" is an old 4 star hotel building that has been converted into a vintage hostel in Lagos, deep in the south west corner of Portugal. It´s right in the heart of the buzzing historical center of town.
All the bars and restaurants are there on the doorstep, great value Portuguese cuisine, international food too, bars to chill or party with original music and drink deals. All this within a 5 min (most of them less!) walk from the door. warning: walk home may take a little longer,....... Lagos is famous for its bars!!
Hostel "The White Butterfly" has dorm rooms and also private double rooms for couples or triple rooms. Breakfast is not included in the room price.
WiFi is available in all areas and is free of charge.
There's a large communal room and a huge patio, with a stone Jacuzzi, to hang out in, suck back a cold beer and get some sun, all surrounded by the building.
The house is very old, its like a castle inside! Carved stone stairs, original tile or wood parquet floors, antique furniture/fittings and rooms with high ceilings. You feel like royalty when you walk in the door of the oldest new Lagos hostel!
In our Hostel you can find kitchen facilities for our customers and staff use, where you can prepare your meals.
We offer free coffee in the morning for our guests.
The reception has someone there 24 hrs a day.
There's a great selection of activities in Lagos..... surfing, fishing, mountain biking, sailing, kite surfing, sea kayaks, boat charters, grotto trips, horse riding, skydiving to name just a few.
Our friendly staff are here to make you feel welcome, and help you maximize your stay in Lagos....
Lagos has several beautiful beaches. the infamous Praia da Batata (Potato Beach) is less than 10 mins by foot, with caves, grottos and more secret beaches you can explore at low tide. Meia Praia is a 5 km long open beach close by, Porto do mos, Praia do Camilo, Praia Dona Ana and more all there for you. Enough beaches to go to a different one every day!
Cabo São Vicente (Cape st. Vincent) is a half hour drive from our Lagos hostel, where people used to think the world ended.... of course that seems silly now that we know the world is flat. Monchique is about 45 mins away, the Algarves highest mountain, where you can see the entire west coast, south coast and even Spain on a clear day.
