The hostel is generally excellent value for money, with well-appointed and spacious rooms and very comfy beds, and an excellent breakfast bar/cafe which is reasonably priced. The staff are generally pleasant but one receptionist was very short tempered and very actively rude to us during our stay. It is a shame, as in many ways it is an excellent hostel.

I really chose this due to the incredibly cheap price I paid, but there's no doubt I would return, and pay more if necessary, because it was SO sparkling clean, comfortable and such a lovely place, so central, such nice people... it was quiet, yet right in the middle of the town, and should be shown as an example to...

We had a wonderful experience in Hostal Altamar. Thanks to Ignacio for his help with the map and attractions to see in Almunecar. We wouldn't have had our best fried fish tapas experience without him. The place is very cheap and also very clean and quiet. Would recommend.

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
