“Had a wonderful stay here with Concha”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

My wife and I only were able to stay one night here but Concha made us feel like family!
The guest house is well marked and just a short distance from the castle walls. The hostel
is very clean and welcoming. The shared bathroom was pristine. There was only one other
person staying during our October 2013 visit which made it extra quiet and easy.
Concha speaks enough English but really enjoyed speaking Spanish with us. The bed
was very comfortable and the breakfast was very nice.

Room Tip: We had a private double room and we saw the common room with a few single beds as well as a dorm be...

We stayed in Argonauta only for one night, but we immediately felt at home.
Sometimes you stay in great place with no soul and even if it's marvellous, you leave without any regret. Sometimes the soul of the house is so dominant that you wouldn't want to leave. This is the case. Concha is a perfect owner and her house is simply unique.
We had the double room (see picture) and we really couldn't ask for more.
There is free wifi, breakfast included and free use of kitchen.
Moreover Obidos, even if it's a bit too touristic, it's really charming.
Step in Argonauta :)))

Helpful, charming, cosy - we couldn't have asked for anything more from our stay here and we'd recommend it to anyone. The town itself is lovely and it would have been great to stay longer but unfortunately we had to move on. Thanks to Concha for a wonderful stay...

What a gem ! We were a little apprehensive about staying in a hostel at first but as soon as we walked in the door Concha the owner made us feel at home . Situated just outside the town walls its a perfect location . You are free to use the kitchen if you want to make a meal or just a drink . Concha is very helpful & made our stay a memorable one .

By far the most beautiful hostel i've seen in my life. The location is just perfect, close to the castle but in a more quiet point. The living room downstairs is like a room taken from a fairytale. Full of vintage stuff, cool things and memories. The rooms are also perfect. There's a fireplace inside the room running all night keeping you warm and making you feel like you are really back home. One of the best thing about the hostel though, was the owner. She is very sweet, passionate for life with great energy and she makes you feel like home. Cant wait to visit again.

My gf and I stayed one night in this guesthouse at the beginning of January. We were the only ones in the place and the owner (Concha) was on holidays in Spain. The place was obviously very quiet but we absolutely loved the location, the bed warmer (as it was cold out at night), the neat layout, the fireplace and the service that we got from Concha's neighbour. The customer service was great to the point where we were recommended restaurants and loaned bikes to go on a 10km bike ride to a lagoon with a view of the Atlantic.

We felt right at home in this guesthouse and it was hard to leave. Definitely a recommended place to stay!

If you're planning on visiting Obidos you should give this guest house a try. You won't be disappointed. The house is located 2 minutes walk from the castle, very clean and cozy, and the owner (Concha) is super friendly and sweet!

Room Tip: If the private room is available take it. You get more space.
