“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2012

I have just returned from staying at X Hostel...it was amazing! All staff were friendly and helpful, and the organised tapas nights and pub crawls were fantastic. It is perfect for solo travellers as drinks on the roof terrace is a perfect way to meet others. It was clean and had a really good atmosphere. Many travellers I met extended their stay -as it was such a good vibe! It's the best hostel I've stayed in. I will definitely be returning ....to beat Alfie at table tennis :O)

My friend and I were on foreign exchange in England and wanted a break from the weather and went out on a limb and booked a last minute flight to Alicante. We got so lucky choosing this hostel. The people who worked there were so nice and so mellow and it was so easy to get to know everyone. It was the off season while we were there which is why it was so quiet and relaxing (which was exactly what we were wanting) but I'm going back this summer and am looking foreword to the more up- beat summer festivities. The Hostel people put together a really great pub crawl which we didn't go on but that i plan on going on this summer when i go back.
Also everything was really clean, there was a great kitchen, computers downstairs to use and great character all around the hostel. Theres a nice terrace out on the roof which is great because of how hot it gets.
The location is amazing too. its set up from the hectic touristy area but in perfect walking distance from everything to do and theres a supermarket around the corner.
its just a bus and a few blocks from the airport too and only a few blocks up from the train station which is great for backpacking.
Im so glad i stumbled upon this treasure!! Im excited to stay here agian

Hostel X was a great place to stay for my friends and I in Alicante for a weekend. The owners are so fun and helpful, they organize pub crawls and tapas nights.. it´s a great way to hang out with the locals and see what makes Alicante so fun. I loved my stay here. The rooms and bathrooms are really clean and the staff is unbeatable!

We`ve been there for new years eve with a couple of friends. This place is located in the center of Alicante. Its about 15 min walk to the beach. This place seems to be perfect for party people in the summertime. When we were there it was quiet what was good for us.
The staff is very friendly and they care a lot about the customers.
Would recommend this place not for a romantic trip but for single travellers or groups.

X Hostel Alicante, is awesome! The environment is fun, and easy to meet new people. The owners and staff are really fun and friendly. They organize a wicked pub craw, definitely do it! It is a really social hostel, as they always organize activities after the beach. The rooms and bathrooms are clean, really clean. There is a good social area to chill in. The location is also one of the best! www.XHostelAlicante.com
