Cheap for Gibraltar standards (30-40 pounds for a double room). Rooms are simple an clean. Very friendly and informal staff and good breakfast are served. One criticism was state of shared toilets. Smell was terrible but stopped at our door thankfully and toilets were not very clean and totally flooded. Didnt dare look at the showers, good for short cheap... More

For a single traveller this is the cheapest place to stay in Gib. Price doesn't include breakfast but you can buy it and its decent value for this rather expensive city. The dorm I stayed in had 6 bunks with pillows of variable quality and nice warm blanket. There was a radiator to plug in if the evening was cool.... More

Terrible hostel experience, we stayed 30 minutes banging on thhe door till they opened it. And the receptionist looked sleepy and was rude to us and not helpful at all. Bad mattress and in the morning we had to leave around 7 am, and there was nobody to check us out, so we had to leave a note with the... More

A relatively cheap hostel, the rooms are for six and we were a party of seven so he lumped a mattress on the floor for us after muttering to his friend in Spanish. The beds were very old and the toilets/dining area a little worn out, otherwise OK.

Stayed here for one night on our backpacking trip. The location is good, walkable from the airport and pretty much in the city centre. Easy to find. Stayed in a 6 bed dorm. Three not exactly comfy bunk beds, one table, small mirror and not much else. There wasn't really anywhere to put stuff on other than the floor. The... More

No locks, no lockers, no kitchen, one toilet and shower per gender for entire hostel. No outside food even allowed on the premises as they have their own cafe service (which i did not try). The location is ideal right outside casemate's square, but for the price of £18 for 6 bed dorm it's a huge rip-off. They do have... More

Unfortunatly the hostel is the only hostel in Gibraltar, it's pretty expensive but still the cheapes accommodations in Gibraltar. Pretty basic, but not very clean, the staff there are not very nice (only the manneger is nice). If you plan going to Gibraltar I would recommend you to try to find a better place in the other side of the... More

Pros: cheap breakfast, friendly staff, good showers. Cons: Noisy, no security, only one bathroom for each gender This is the only hostel in Gibraltar, so you don´t have much choice. The staff is helpful, its centrally located (everything in Gibraltar is) and they have a good English breakfast. They don´t have any lockers so you have to hope your room... More

Well I stayed here for a Few days last year in July before heading off to Malaga, anyway what attracted me was the price and locality to the Spanish border town La Linea De La Conception which has got busier.
