The location of this hostel is unbeatable, right on the water. Unfortunately, there is some shady management happening here. We watched a woman get thrown out for being "crazy" at midnight; the owner ran and followed her up the stairs very aggressively. We were also mishandled at check out after leaving 11 Euro for the key deposit and only receiving...

Romantic beach, on Passeo Maritimo Ruiz Pablo Picasso, is perfect for everyone; enjoy quite water, sandy beach, sunbeds and sunshade, and since comfort comes after an effort, feel free where you can enjoy the best meal nearby on the beach.

The staff here is really awesome and friendly. Extremely accommodating. They even have a great restaurant attached where if you're staying you get 10% off dinner and alcohol. My boyfriend says their burger is one of the best he's ever had. Good options for vegetarians. The patio is nice to just have a few beers and hang with other people...

Very neat and clean room, and the staff was super friendly. Only some spoke English, but we managed to figure it out anyway with my rusty Spanish and a little bit of sign-language. The hostel is approx. 20-30 min from the city centre, which suited me fine, since I enjoy walking. It was also easy to find, and right by...
