It was ideally situated to walk where ever we wanted to go. The room was clean with private bath. We didn't have any issues with noise and were very satisfied. The only down side to the room was it was advertised as having wifi in the room and we couldn't get reception. It was great in the common area but... More

I have spent 2 weeks there, together with my 12 years son and were both delighted. It is a hostel, not a 5* hotel, let us keep that in mind ;-). The hosts, Cecile and Ignacio, and their staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful. We have enjoyed their friendliness and recommendations. Hostal Altamar is located at 200 m from the... More

Just returned from a week at Hostal Altamar and can honestly say it was a delight to stay there. My room was a huge double with Air Con on demand,TV (not that I watched it)and had a full bathroom and was spotlessly clean as were the communal areas of the property. The couple that run it are interesting and helpful... More

I stayed here 2 nights in a double/twin room. It was comfortable and clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. The location is on a quiet street a few minutes walk from the main beach. I always felt welcome and the place was quiet. Breakfast etc was offered but I chose to eat in the town as there was... More

This was a lovely hostel to stay in. I happened to be passing through and found great value for money and service in this place. The owners were very friendly and helpful.
