Not knowing what to expect we were a bit dubious about staying at a hostel after listening to other travellers. We were not at all disappointed. The hostel was very clean & very comfortable albeit slightly quirky (but in a good way). The breakfast was very basic but better than one of the hotels we stayed at previously in El... More

The town is a strange place where horses are more accommodated than cars. The hostel was basic but seemed to be typical of the area and did the job. The air con worked well and all was clean. The highlights for me however were the reception staff who also served the breakfast. They both took time to explain things to... More

Beware that the hotel will convert your bill into GBP (UK customers) and charge you a mark-up for this. They did this despite my request to pay in euros. The invoice states euros, the card-reader display states euros, but the card-reader print-out (which most people stuff into their pocket or wallet without reading) states that they will convert it and...

we've stayed over a week-end at this hostal, a typical experience when staying in El Rocio, with the sandy street, the bar to attach the horses at the entrance, and the courtyard with lush plants just outside the room. Breakfast is a bit simple. But you get Wi-Fi everywhere for free.

Stayed in this hostal for one night on the way to Doñana national park (early morning visit). It is located in the Western-style village of El Rocio. The room was apartment-style, with 1 bedroom, one pre-room with a sofa, a kitchenette and a bathroom. Staff was nice, the room was very quiet and the bed comfortable. I did not have... More

OK this is NOT an hotel, but a hostal. That said it is as good as an hotel, and in some cases,better. My wife and I plus 2 friends (all 60+,but looking 30!!) spent 5 days there, from 26th Apl, on a birding trip, for which the area is renowned. So many pluses. Reception was first class, rooms were spotless,... More

Would recommend the Hostal. Most comfortable Helpful and attractive staff. Room air conned which is essential as the area is pretty warm from early season. Like most Hostels not all rooms have outside window, some overlook the courtyard.

The reception and cleaning staff were great, very helpful and cheerful. The room was very clean and serviced well each day. We found the room to be dark and a little depressing to spend much time in, the rooms have been converted from a studio apartment and the only storage are the old kitchen units, a mobile hanging rail with...

Of course you do not get lots of luxury If you only pay few euro for at double room incl. Breakfast. But you get a very clean room incl. Regular bathroom with shower. Nice breakfast and a hotel near the center of El Ricio and near the sea, where there are many different birds.

A really great place, with spacious rooms, with a fridge (great for storing beer), and an excellent shower. Probably one of the best things about our stay was the hostess, who was incredibly friendly, and always wanted to help. I don't really get it when people say that the hostal wasn't in the centre of town... I suppose it wasn't... More
