The receptionist was such a rude dude. We arrived at 11 a.m. and he started to shout at me and my friends that the check-in was only after 3 p.m., being totally rude, and seemed that we kinda waked him up. The reception only worked at the reception and the price of the staying was pretty expensive. The worst thing at all was that the reception isn't 24h! We had to leave 6 a.m. and when we came to the reception to give the keys back the guy was SLEEPING and we had to leave the keys at the floor.
The staff was incredibly rude, and unbelievably disorganized. The room felt like it was barely being held together and it was nothing short of a prison cell. I found blood on the sheets before I even laid in it. It was an utter disaster.

Everything you need. Perfect for backpackers. The only issue imho - just two electric sockets in 6 bed room.
First thing you think of when arriving is leaving! We were rudely welcomed, there were no lockers, and the general atmosphere was unfriendly. The facilities were a bit old too. Nevertheless the place was very clean and in the morning we met another member of staff who was very friendly and almost made us forget how rudely we were welcomed.
no directions to the hostel, but it is listed on all the big tourist maps coming into the city. no breakfast, and really loud karaoke/live music from the nearby pubs at night isn't great if you're trying to leave early in the morning. otherwise, pretty close to shops and restaurants, staff is nice, and it's really the only choice for a hostel in gibraltar.
The location is the best aspect of the hostel. It's located about 5 mins walk from the main square/high street and the marina where all the main bars and restaurants are. In terms of the hostel itself, the facilities are in good condition, and the rooms are fairly clean. Not much in the way of atmosphere but it seemed safe and the staff were friendly. Only down point of the hostel was the constant noise of the nearby clubs and the smell of the chip shops that gets into the dorms.
