share and transmit is essential with Joy and Sensibility.

History from 2015 to today

the feder family

I, Dörte, joined the Surf Hostel Team in 2015 when the founders moved back to Australia. At first, I managed just the original Biarritz location. Then in 2016, I took over management of both the Biarritz and Bidart hostels. It was a perfect fit for me. I was combining my job with family life and working with a great team, all while providing travelers an memorable hostel experience. In 2018, the Parentys closed the Bidart location and my husband, Thomas and I decided to buy the Biarritz Hostel to continue the vision.
We’re committed to giving you the best holiday experience, and work passionate to raise the quality and standards of the Hostel for our customers. Since taking over, we’ve renovated all the rooms and bathrooms, launched a new webpage and booking system, and gathered a new fresh fleet of surfboards, bikes and wetsuits.
It makes us happy creating a space where travelers from all over the world can meet, relax, surf, and discover the beautiful Biarritz coastline and city – or simply enjoy a relaxed time together with old and new friends. At the Surf Hostel, you’ll find the perfect place to share your culture, ideas, sports and food with open-minded and fun-loving people. Our aim is that you go home feeling refreshed, energized and better than before you arrived.
Our motto is Come as a guest and leave as a friend. I myself, am originally from Germany, spent years travelling across Europe without a fixed address, and finally made Biarritz my home in 2004. I know how it feels to come to a place without knowing the culture, language and people – and the joy of finding a place and people that make you feel at home. We strive to give you that experience. Join our hostel family and find a space under our roof where you can feel welcome, safe and relaxed. Come and check it out for yourself

In the Beginning

The Surf Hostel story began in the summer of 2009. Christophe and Melissa Parenty were serving as Christian missionaries in Biarritz and had opened a English language school. They were living in a 5-bedroom apartment with their 6 children, when their landlord offered them another lease on a 3-bedroom apartment directly below. An idea came to them! Why not transform the 3-bedroom apartment to a hostel with a package offer – Bed + Breakfast + Bike + Surfboard? And that’s what they did.
Guests started arriving, and fast. The demand was so great that the Parenty family soon moved from their large apartment upstairs to the smaller apartment downstairs. With the extra rooms, the Surf Hostel could now host up to 15 guests. As the workload increased, people joined to help in exchange for room and board. That initial summer flew by in a whirlwind of excitement and learning on the run….. Through it all, Christophe and Melissa wanted the Biarritz Surf Hostel to be a place where people could experience a community where God was present.
