“Very surprised!”
Reviewed August 22, 2008

Just returned yesterday from a 6 night stay at the Hostal San Francisco in Cala D'or. We wanted a cheap getaway as we had already had our main holiday earlier in the year and we were on a tight budget. I saw this hotel coming up at a cheap price and we decided to take a gamble and go for it. As the hostal is only rated ar a 1* I was very worried about what we were going to get but I was pleasantly surprised!
Underneath the hostal there is a travel agency and this doubles up as a reception where we collected our key on arrival. The lady who works in there is one of the most friendly and helpful people ever! They offer excursions, airport transfers and a bureau de change and I would recommend this agency for any extras that you may want to book.
Our room was on the first floor over looking similar properties at the back. We had a small balcony with chairs. In the room there are twin beds, a dressing table, wardrobe and bathroom with shower. The bathroom was very clean & quite modern. The room itself wasn't massive but larger than I expected and again clean. Plenty of hanging space in wardrobe. The mattress on my bed was slightly hard but this did not stop me sleeping! The cleaner made our beds on a daily basis and we even got clean towels every day! The towels were a bit hard a worn but always clean so this wasn't really a problem.
There is no lift but the hostal is only 2 floors so not too much of a problem. There is a drinks machine on the first floor. Also fans and fridges can be hired which I would recommend as it was very hot in the room on a night!
Breakfast was included and served from 8 till 10. It consisted of bread, cheese, bacon, ham, fried eggs and water melon! Also juices and hot drinks. The breakfast was fine.
The hostal is situated right on one of the main streets in Cala D'or. As we were at the back it wasn't too noisy but I would recommend taking ear plugs in case you are in one of the front rooms which I imagine are a bit noisier. Shops and restaurants are immediately outside and it is only a 5 minute walk to Cala Gran & Cala D'or beaches.
I would probably stay here again as we had a good experience and the location is very central. Don't be expecting 4 or 5* luxury because it quite simply is not. The accommodation is very basic but clean. As long as you bear this in mind the San Francisco is ideal for a cheap break.

Wanted an inexpensive break abroad as weather in England had been depressing this summer. Found this accommodation and took a gamble. Only rated 1 star, what would we get?

Well en-suite facilities, bath and shower, although no plug for basin or bath! 2 hand towels,2 bath towels - a bit hard. Twin beds also fairly firm, but beds made each day and towels, linen changed once during the week.

We also had breakfast included which consisted of eggs,bacon, little sausages, ham, cheese, bread, croissants, jams, juice, tea/coffee.

Location was literaly just across the road from main shops and restaurants. Couple of minutes walk to 2 beaches. Quite small but lawned areas to sunbathe on as well as sand. Lifeguards on duty on larger beach - Cala Gran. Plenty of low key night life and great marina with boat trips.

Good atmosphere for family holiday, but no lift in Hostel so not too young child friendly.
