We stayed as a party of four adults inte ding to use it as a base for a few visits to Gibraltar. Period booked was for the 11th Sept to 14th Sept using two separate rooms.

What a great find as it turned out. The Hostel is a family run business, but the proprietor made it feel like we were honoured guests in his own home.

The hostel is situated about 500 meters or so from the Gibraltar border. It is a pleasant flat walk across a public square, then through a bustling cafe area. Plenty of opportunity to have snacks if you can't wait to cross the border.

The hostel reception area/bar/restaurant is on entry to the Hostel. The premises immediately strike you as being clean and tidy. Most of which has been recently refurbished. One lift serves all 4 floors, but as there are only 17 rooms and a perfectly adequate stairway, there is rarely any wait.

The rooms are pleasantly furnished with massive wardrobe storage. There is an en suite bathroom with both bath and shower. Both rooms are clean and tidy.

Requests for extra pillows were dealt with immediately. Service to the dining tables for food and drink was immediate as the reception desk is in the same room. Snacks were delicious and made to order.

An evening meal is available for only 9 euros which comprised 3 courses, with a perfectly adequate choice. Couple this with reasonably priced drinks which were on the large side and a nothing is too much trouble attitude from the staff and you realise why this is so positive a review.

The Hostel offers no parking facility, but there is a public car park just opposite which is about 20 euros for 24 hrs.

I must point out the role played by the proprietor, whose name for the moment escapes me. He is there from early in the morning until late at night making ones stay delightful and inspiring his family and staff to care for the customer. I have no hesitation in recommending La Campana.

Wifi non existent in room and needed for planning so it was very disappointing that it wasn't available. Black mold under window in room was a bit nasty. Only one plug in the room one in bathroom so it was hard to charge up camera and phone. The Air Con worked good which was nice in July. TV was a small flat screen multi channels. The bathroom was a bit strange 1/2 tube size created a pool of water out into the room so watch the shower pressure. The knob to turn the shower head was broken off. They also had strange long pillows rather then regular individual pillows. Smal tear open shampoo and shower gel and small hand soap bar were good as we had forgotten ours. The closet came with an eclectic assortment of hangers. Small desk and chair but would need to move the bed if you want to use it. The stairwell was a storage of shelves two bed farms and one mattress. The was a lift although we didn't use it.
Restaurant downstairs also operates as reception. Parking garage across the street although the hotel has two spots out front. The main road that runs into Gibraltar is just around the corner and the border is about a 5 minute walk
About 3-4 streets down from the hotel is an area of shops and restaurants plenty to choose from.
Overall a very good location and a hit the budget mark so would stay again only if wifi is assured.

Room Tip: Parking free on no color curbs, blue pay meter yellow business use. Find a non painted curb and park for free. Cable car up to Gibraltar If you pay before crossing you will pay .70€ more than the Gibraltar side. You need to exchange your prepaid tickets when you get there. Skip the line and go to the ticket booth side door. Watch your bags, the monkeys will try to take them!

We stayed there in April, as we visited Gibraltar, and this hostal is perfectly situated near the border. It was incredibly cheap and I was expecting for some things to be wrong, but instead everything was fine. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are nice. Huge wardrobe and bathroom with bathtub, warm room and comfortable beds. No meals were included in the price (it was too cheap anyway), but we had dinner in their restaurant and it was amazing. Well, we love Spanish food, and we were not let down this time neither. We had the "menu del dia" (menu of the day) for only 9 Euro each, and everything we had was delicious. The border is a mere 5 minutes walk in almost straight line, so you can't get lost. The city centre of La Linea is right around the corner with plenty of shops and bars. Would definitely go back and recommend this place!

Room Tip: Don't go around searching for any fancy restaurant! Try the Spanish food they serve as it is great!

We decided to stay in hostal la campana because we were visiting Gibraltar and it seemed cheaper than hotels on the rock .
Upon arrival we were greeted with a receptionist with absolutely no knowledge of the English language . We were asked to leave our bags in the room before they cleaned it . We walked into the room horrified with what appeared to be human excrement on the pillows .
We then had to leave the hotel without our baggage and passports for an hour while our room was cleaned .
Other than this we returned to a fresh clean well equipped ensuite hotel room within walking distance of the rock .
