The Hostelz.com Review - Genuine, independent review you can trust.
If you end up in Fuerteventura's surfing capital in the north, Corralejo, and you're looking for a fun and social hostel with good vibes and surf rental, look no further than Surf Riders Fuerteventura.
Surf Riders is located outside of the city center of Corralejo, about a ten-minute walk from the ocean. It is located very close to the city's largest grocery store as well as restaurants and shops.
Rooms and Bathrooms
The dorm rooms are large, with comfortable beds and pillows. They won't win any awards any time soon, but they're fine. The shared bathrooms are kept clean, and although there are no hand towels, there's a foot towel for the shower and there's always plenty of solar-heated hot water.
The common spaces at Surf Riders are great, offering large spots to stretch out after a surf and talk to other travelers. The main common space inside boasts a huge couch and a large TV, where the hostel plays sports games. Out back, there's a large pool and lounge area, as well as a large seating area, grill, and ping-pong table toward the side. Their resident painter has created beautiful murals all over the hostel, adding to the vibe.
The hostel also holds a weekly BBQ on Fridays where you can meet with other travelers at the hostel and some people even come over from other hostels. There are two guest kitchens in the hostel, both attached to the main common area. The kitchens are relatively well stocked, although they're not great. There are no good knives for chopping, so if you're looking to make a solid meal, it can be a little bit tricky. The included breakfast is good, with a wide selection of options including cereals, muffins, meats, and cheeses. If you're looking for a vegan option, you'll have to bring your own supplies.
The Wi-Fi signal is sketchy, but this is pretty common on Fuerteventura -- you are on a small island off the coast of Africa, after all.
If you're looking for a chill hostel from which to rent a board and hit the waves, Surf Riders is a great spot. They offer comfortable rooms, a social atmosphere, and weekly BBQs so that you can lounge around by the pool and relax after a long day in the water.
