Great value. Super clean. Very friendly. 2 minutes to the beach and 10 to the center. Cozy little bar restaurant.... Like we say in Spanish.... No pidas peras al Olmo. Genial. Q mas se puede pedir por un precio irrisorio al lado del mar en todo el centro de Almuñecar. Fantastico

The location is great, a few minutes away from the sea, yet seconds away from the many tapas bars. As the streets are mostly narrow and pedestrianised, it isn't possible to park nearby. This wasn't much of a problem as we found a cul-de-sac where we could unload, ran in with the bags and went off to park the car.... More

We loved thus place. In the centre of Almunecar old town and close to the beach. This is excellent value for money. Rooms are cleaned daily and continental style breakfast is served anytime after 9ish. All the staff were friendly and helpful and offered good advice. We would definitely stay here again and intend to. Thank you for the hairdryer... More

We stopped here for one night after a long drive from Valencia. We were exhausted when we arrived but the night receptionist, a very non-smiley gentleman, made us wait for 10-15 minutes as he 'couldn't find the booking in the system'. The hostal was not full - I could see a lot of keys in the room slots, so he... More

The hostel is generally excellent value for money, with well-appointed and spacious rooms and very comfy beds, and an excellent breakfast bar/cafe which is reasonably priced. The staff are generally pleasant but one receptionist was very short tempered and very actively rude to us during our stay. It is a shame, as in many ways it is an excellent hostel.

I really chose this due to the incredibly cheap price I paid, but there's no doubt I would return, and pay more if necessary, because it was SO sparkling clean, comfortable and such a lovely place, so central, such nice people... it was quiet, yet right in the middle of the town, and should be shown as an example to...

We had a wonderful experience in Hostal Altamar. Thanks to Ignacio for his help with the map and attractions to see in Almunecar. We wouldn't have had our best fried fish tapas experience without him. The place is very cheap and also very clean and quiet. Would recommend.
