One of the best and friendliest hostels I stayed in. There was a strong social, partying atmosphere, yet also relaxing. The staff were friendly and helpful, engaging a lot with the backpackers. Made a lot of friends and only intended to stay 1-2 nights, as did a lot of people I met there. However, the stay was that great I...

I've been to a ton of hostels while traveling the world and this is one of my favorite. The atmosphere was excellent as well as the location but the best part was the staff as the continually impressed me with their great attitude and overwhelming kindness.

I have since returned 2 more times, and it never disappoints. I've been to Alicante a few times, and certainly plan to return again, and it's nice to...
