Booked this place for 4 nights based on the reviews and wasn't disappointed. Basic decor in the room but well equipped with a decent shower, air con, fridge and super view. Lovely continental breakfast. The only reason I've marked it down slightly is the bed was rather hard and the double bed had one long pillow along the width of... More

Excellent value for money hostal. We stayed in room 11, with the same views over the town as from the restaurant, down over the town to the port. A good place to watch the sun rise! The room was comfortable, clean and spacious, with excellent air-con and the bonus of a fridge. Good buffet breakfast taken in the restaurant, where... More

We stayed recently en el Dorado for 4 nights (room 33). It was brilliant. Very spacious, clean and quiet room with a private balcony overlooking the village /bay. Staff including Carmen and Sergio(?) were very attentive. We hired mountain bikes at the hostal to visit the nearby beaches (Monsul/Genoves). Otherwise, if you don't have a car - be aware there...

We have holidayed in San Jose about four times over the last 10 years and this is the best place we have stayed in. As most reviewers say, this will make you think again about staying in a hostal! The hotel is well situated close to the village so that it is a short walk to the bars and restaurants... More

Everything has been perfect, tidy room with TV and Air Con and a small fridge. We also Enjoyed the swimming pool a lot. The hostal Is close to the Cabo de gata Natural Park, 3 really nice beaches are part of the park. The only thing Could be better is the restaurant, nice atmosphere but not really good food.

It is a really really great place. Not only the fabolous view what You can get from your room and your terrace but also from the restaurant or bar of the hotel. Room was clean and comfortable. Very good that you can park just from few steps away from your room. Was lovely the park between the rooms

We stayed 9 nights at Hostal el Dorado & can say that it is amazing for 2 stars.  Our room/suite was huge with stunning views over San Jose & out to the mediterranean sea. The room was spotlessly clean with a comfy bed & quality towels/sheets, you also get to chose your pillow type from the pillow menu.  There was... More

Okay, I’ll admit it, we were feeling a bit dubious about staying in a two star hostel. We expected to be far from the town and beach in a small… well, let’s call is a cell. However, we couldn’t have been more wrong. We found this to be a charming place as well as great value for money. We had... More

First time we have stayed in a hostal, and it won't be the last. Had everything we could want, spacious balcony, clean large room, good bathroom facility, excellent friendly staff, swimming pool, fantastic views and charmingly relaxed restaurant. Also excellent value at £60 pounds a night. Easy walk into San Jose. We were on the top floor and it involved... More
