Your home in the middle of the Atlantic

"Staying with us is a unique experience: you get to surf waves in the middle of the Atlantic and, when not surfing, you have an entire island to explore. Angra do Heroísmo is the perfect combination between low travel mode, seaside culture, history & untouched beaches."

The Azores have nine volcanic islands with pristine beach breaks, world-class reef breaks, dreamy, long point breaks and it has consistent waves all year round.

From October to April is a good time to surf. It's our winter, spring, and autumn: be prepared to ride some world-class waves. Remember: even though temperatures are good all year round, it is rainy from October to April, but we can still find some good waves for a great session.

The best time for beginners is from June to September when it's warmer and we can find some rideable waves, great for starters.

The lodge

Mid-Atlantic Boutique Hostel is a unique hostel with a privileged location at the lovely Angra Bay in Angra do Heroísmo, a fantastic town classified as World Heritage by UNESCO, on the wonderful Terceira Island, Azores.

We’re located in “Rua Baixinha”, the first street in the city of Angra do Heroísmo. In a down run area of the city but full of history, great views and potential, we identified this building as a really special one. We decided to make it happen and a two-year restoration has been done to transform this building into something magical!

Our lodge is 30-second walking distance from a mini-market and 3 minutes (or less) from the historic area of Angra do Heroísmo, marina and beach = there’s paid parking 20 meters from the hostel and a free car park about 100 meters from the hostel.

We offer 1 Studio Room, 2 double / twin deluxe rooms, 2 mixed dorms (6 beds each).

Surf

We are partners with Associação de Surf da Terceira, a local non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the practice of extreme sports, specially surf, as well as defend and preserve our waves. You can book a lesson during your stay and surf the amazing waves of the Azores.

Leading trips since 2019
André Leonardo
André Leonardo

In 2013 André Leonardo (the founder of Mid-Atlantic Hostel) went on an extreme mission around the world to meet entrepreneurs and exciting new business ideas. He traveled alone to 4 corners of the world for one year, taking only a backpack and a camera.

He went to 23 countries during this journey, from US and Canada to Australia, Japan, India, or Kenya. With very little money, he slept at hostels, airports, train and bus stations, used Couchsurfing and has seen the world with no filters, as it really is. He gathered inspiring entrepreneurship stories throughout his 126-thousand-kilometer journey.

From that experience, he dreamed about building his own hostel at his hometown to show this amazing paradise in the middle of the Atlantic to everyone who loves to travel, experience, and see the world as it really is.

He went from the Middle of the Atlantic to all the world. Now it’s time to open the doors of the Middle of the Atlantic.
