This is a great place for young people who want to get some Alicante nightlife. But probably not for anyone else.
The shared sleeping rooms have the bare necessities. There are lockers for your stuff for 1€, towels for 1€ also. The staff is friendly, helpful and fun and organise night outs which you can join. They know some cool locations.
Almost all the other guests where international people from ages 20 to 30. Most of them are travelling alone, some in small groups. English will be necessary to communicate properly otherwise you risk having noone to talk to.
If you pick a shared bedroom you will probably be sleeping with at least one person that snores loudly. My advice is, to go out with the rest of the people, have fun, and get at least so drunk, you dont care about the snoring anymore.
Theres a kitchen where you can make yourself some food. Common room with computers you can use for free, tabletennis and a large common balcony. A supermarker is just around the block. Lots of places to eat also.
If you want to have some fun, this is the place to go.
