I arrived in Alicante on my own, after spending some time with family in nearby Benidorm. The information said reception was 'open all hours', but when I got there late afternoon, is was closed. I had to ring an international number which was posted on the door, for the receptionist who lived nearby to come and let me in. After... More

Very handy location for the old town, and suprisingly quiet considering the proximity of the bars etc. We were in an inside facing room so no view but the air-con kept the room at a reasonable temperature. The shower room was in need of some attention but otherwise the room was big and clean enough. The big plus points are... More

I stayed here August for 2 nights and again in September for another night. Friendly enough staff, rooms simple but adequate and the only drawback was the shower controls with push button taps that you had to hold in with one hand while attempting to bathe. Really surprised by the Breakfast, Cornflakes, Toast, Croissants, Cheese, Ham + Coffee or Tea,... More

We stayed one night here at the beginning of November. It was not very busy as it was off-season. The normal check-in times are until 8pm but we emailed the staff beforehand and asked whether we could come around 9pm. This was no problem and the receptionist welcomed us in a very friendly manner and even reparked her car for... More

We have to say that any problems with the area were outside the remit of the Hostel/Hotel. We had a double room that overlooked the street. It was clean, bright, had everything we needed. The staff were helpful, friendly, and reactive. When we mentioned mosquitoes they installed a plug in repellant which was great. We were in the centre of... More

We stayed here in the middle of july and there are a few issues that would make us not return! We stayed in one of the double rooms. First of all this is a Hostel not a Hotel! Noise: This is a very noisy hotel. i could hear everything that was going on in the lobby, corridor, stairway and outside... More

We took a city break in April 2011 over Good Friday. The location was perfect, close to a lot of restaurants, bars and attractions. Because the location is so central there is a lot of "nightlife" (noise) all night long. Bring earplugs if you plan on sleeping at night. Rooms were very basic but very clean. The staff were all...

A group of 10 of us stayed here for 2 nights, spread over two 6 bed dorms. The room was fine, with it's own shower etc and the beds were comfortable enough. All we needed really! There's free WiFi which was excellent to have and the staff are friendly and helpful. The immediate area comes alive at around 11pm and... More
