“Simple Room, Caring Family Owners”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

My wife and I recently visited the Algeciras / Gibraltar region, and we specifically chose to stay at this location because of its proximity to the bus station, the train station and the port. We entered Algeciras by bus and walked to the property. If you follow the directions you get upon booking your stay, you will get there just fine. In addition, the train station is directly across the street from the bus station. From Algeciras, we took a ferry to Morocco, and the port is also within walking distance from the property.

So, the location and the price were both favorable. The property is old, but fairly well maintained. Throughout our travels, we take our own sheets and pillows, and I recommend doing that as a general practice when traveling. While at the property, we needed some clothes laundered, so we asked one of the owners if they offered this service. She told us to leave the clothes, and that she would ask her cleaning lady to take care of it for us. Upon our return from exploring Gibraltar, we were surprised to receive all of our laundry clean, neatly folded and ready for us at the front desk. What the location lacked in modern amities, the staff and owners made up for in caring for their customers.

It’s important to note that this is not a hostel, like you might be used to. It is a “pension”, which is more like a hotel than a hostel.

Me and my travelpartner only needed a place to sleep, while we were visiting Gibraltar. The rooms were ok, the bathroom was ok, everything was average I guess. But the price was good, and then I mean cheap, so we didn't get more than what we paid for.

We selected this accommodation as it looked near train station and ferry port. We were assured on booking that credit card was accepted for payment but on check in they refused to honor that.
The room was small, one window opening out to street, and the remainder of furnishings primitive at best. The 'in suite' bath had translucent sheet plastic walls.and thus allowing a limited view to another out in the room. The saving grace of this place is that it is near the train station and not too far to the ferry and that is all.
