I stayed here for three nights in April. I switched from I stayed one night in the Hostal El Dorado and then switched to Hostal El Puerto Genoves. It was a good move. The room was comfortable. There was a small terrace with room for two chairs and a table. It doesn't have a good view. The location is convenient.... More

We stayed 3 nights in July and very much enjoyed our stay! The staff was very friendly, helpful and professional. The location was nice with easy parking on the street and at walkable distance from the beach, small stores and restaurants. The room was always very clean and had a small balcony. However, we enjoyed the terrace more, as we... More

We stayed two nights at the hostel in January. The staff was very professional and competent. Very clean and well organised. Great breakfast. The only place we could find including breakfast in San Jose in January. We had to leave before breakfast time on the last day and a small breakfast was placed in our room the night before. Would...

Very friendly manager. My gluten intolerance was no problem for breakfast. Very convenient location for the town restaurants and bars etc, and for getting in and out of town to explore local beaches and further afield. Rooms well appointed and bathrooms seem very new. The only issues to bear in mind are the beds are hard - I was comfortable... More

We wanted to stay in San Jose and booked this hostal based on trip advisor reviews. It was about 5 minute walk to the town and beach, which meant it was nice and quite, but very convenient. The manager / owner was so helpful and friendly. The room was good for a hostal with air conditioning and a ceiling fan.... More

This is decent, simple little hotel, in central San Jose, a slow 5 minutes walk from the main beach, and near the centre of town. Clean, pleseant rooms, friendly owners, good breakfast, free parking nearby, and a good base to explore Cabo de Gata.

The hostal Puerto Genoves was a good place to stay, about five minutes walk from the beach and the small central town area. The room was good sized, great shower, good terrace and a cool basement room that had a large kid play area and sitting space. The breakfast was good, generous, with good coffee. The owner was helpful, and... More

This place was easy to find in San Jose. The room is simple and clean, free wifi available in the room. The breakfast was again simple but perfectly enough and actually provided a lot of choice. We stayed there for 3 nights and the room was cleaned each morning.

The hotel actually did not provided the room as booked on the website. The room was clean, the ambience in the premises stuffed with "bartulos", sometimes less is more when it comes to interior design. Located close to the city center, although the San Jose beach would be the last to stay on. After we pointed out that we did... More
