Fell totally in love with San Jose having stumbled across it almost accidentally and Las Gaviotas is the perfect base to explore this beautiful place from. Lovely big bedroom with decent sized balcony and great big bathroom. Best of all the room had a fantastic shower. Las Gaviotas is certainly as good a standard as any of the 3 star... More

My partner and I stayed at this Hostal for one night during a 3 week stay in Almeria. Located just 5 mins walk from San Jose on the main road, this is a lovely Hostal which is far more like a hotel. Rooms are cool and extremely clean with a view of pink bouganvillia and the swimming pool at the... More

This was my second visit to Las Gaviotas, it is a basic but very clean Hostal and is suitably situated on the outskirts of San Jose, ensuring a quiet nights sleep. The beds & pillows are comfortable and the linen spotless. The bathroom was ok with a bath & shower, the towels were a bit thin and need replacing. The... More

Our scuba diving club recently had our annual pilgrimage to the Cabo De Gata area and we all stayed in las Gaviotas for the 2nd year running. The situation of the place is only a 10 minute walk from the port and beach areas, on the edge of San Jose, and is therefore very quiet. Rooms are clean and are... More

49 Euros for en-suite double in clean room with balcony (agree view from is not much to write home about) 12 minute walk into town with good choice of reasonably priced bars and restaurants. The hostal had a breakfast room but no evening meals. Not too touristy (few Brits) and out of town beaches fantastic. Would stay again if in... More
