Old Center Hostel is perfectly located, a minute away from the beach. The atmosphere is also very friendly. Would definitely recommend it

Close to the bus station and beach and downtown, the location was great, and the owner was very helpful and kind. The only downside (not the hostel's fault) is how loud the neighborhood is at night. If you want to go out and party, it's fine. But if you want to go to bed early, it's difficult to sleep with the noises coming up from the street. Otherwise the hostel was great!


thank you for your kindness


Great ,location, great hostel, very clean and nice.Highly recommend to everyone.


The Old Hostel Alicante is situated in the very heart of the city on the square of town hall, just few minutes of walk away from the yacht port, city beach, beautiful walk along the sea. IIn it vicinity are numerous bars and restaurants offering typical food. To get to the hostel from train or bus statios is easy, it taketakes about 15 minutes walk through the old city.


Great hostel in a perfect location! Very clean and the owners were very friendly! Would definitely recommend!


The only reason why I didn't rank the hostel higher was simply because there is no hand soap in the bathrooms. Personally I think that is disgusting and why would you want to even work in a place where germs from the toilet can be spread so easily when all you have to do is put cheap bar soap even to prevent this. Location is A , staff is friendly and helpful, room is what you'd expect for a cheap dorm, common area isn't meant for a hangout but ok. With the beach so close it's great overall.


it´s nice hostel and comfy
