This review will be pretty much the same as you will read elsewhere, so I'll keep it short!
Starters, don't let HOSTAL put you off - this is a very pleasant 2 maybe even 3 star standard hotel with a small but nice pool area, and clean but very cold pool! The pool bar is fairly priced, and the food is very nice! We were not offered air con when we went in, and I'm glad we didn't. The room we were in was quite hot on our first night, but temperatures at night seemed to plummet from then on, so we didn't need air con, or have the balcony door open. The room was a decent size, only two plug sockets though. Big wardrobe, drawers and clean bathroom with shower attachment.
It isn't right in the centre of San Antonio i.e by the EGG or West End, but it is only a short 10/15 minute walk away. You can either walk along the street, or the more scenic beach way and pass Linekers bar, Itaca, Ibiza Rocks Bar etc. So a perfect location in my eyes, as these bars are way better than the West End. There is a Spar across the road which is very cheap for alcohol, and you can take it back into the hotel, although there isn't a fridge.
We were a group of 2 girls and 3 guys (26/27) and we found it a lively but clean place to stay. The towels were changed every day, rooms cleaned thoroughly and the pool area was clean. During our stay, another guest smashed a glass by the pool, and it was cleaned up immediately. I've been in other hotels where that has not happened!
The infamous night porter! He was a bit grumpy and needed things explaining a lot, but we found him ok. However, during our stay he regularly forgot who we were and who we were with, and we often had to come back down the stairs after he called us back down to be sure who we were! A little annoying, but if you laugh it off then he's fine. It's really good how secure he's actually trying to keep the place if you think of it that way, & we also saw him collecting up people's belongings that had blew off the balconies one night and was trying to find who they belonged to, which was really nice.
The hotel itself is for the young and lively, lots of noise at night eg banging doors, shouting etc but I did hear the night porter tell them to shut up and go to their own rooms! The pool area was busy but if you got down there at 10.30/11 then you could have a choice of sunbeds.
All in all, I'd definitely stay here again as the price is fantastic and really good location in my eyes.
