My weekend at X hostel was amazing! My only regret was that I didn't stay longer. The vibes there were one of a kind, everyone that stayed there were great people and the employees were so kind it really made you feel at home. I really didn't know what to expect when I first got to Alicante, my brother had... More

This is a laid back hostel with cool and friendly staff. We were here for 1 night. The rooms, washrooms and halls etc. are a little old fashioned though. The location is good, but then Alicante is a small town. It is a nice one to spend a night or two.

Thanks X hostel for another great stay! Loved this place, its staff and fun times. Alicante was really worth the trip. I hope to be back in summer to enjoy the beach and the sun. Keep up the great pub crawls!

Nice hostel with great facilities; lots of showers/toilets, actual working WiFi, terrace, chill out room, computers, breakfast (pretty average but still available). The location is quite good. Close to the train station and cheap kebab place and a supermarket. The kitchen is very good too.

In a mixed 6 bed dorm, 3 sets of bunk beds, social events in hostel, pub crawls and bbq. Issues with people we shared with, EXTREME snorers, people putting the fans off and shutting the windows during the night, boiling heat and horrific stench, and really noisy street outside. Fine for a night or two but can't imagine being there... More

Great hostel to spend a few nights in particularly for a solo traveller who likes good nightlife. The staff are all amazing and friendly. Meet some fellow travellers who I will never forget! There is good kitchen facilities, the dorms are clean if a little hot during summer months and the staff organise nights out and party games most days.... More

I spent a week in July in X hostel with three friends and had the best time. The staff were so welcoming and helpful from the moment we arrived and if you ever have a question, they're happy to answer.

Went on a whim with a few mates when we had a free week. Turned out to be an incredible city, but the hostel made it into the greatest week of our lives. Awesome crew working there made every day an adventure and every night an absolute party. Everything from the couches to the rooms, the kitchen to the outdoor... More
