Hostal Facundo

Tarifa, Spain

Located midway between the bus "station" and old town. Maybe they had problems before as many little rules are posted everywhere. OK, but it still felt a bit unwelcoming. Bathroom always smelled odd (no flushing the toilet paper...), and never any soap. There is a kitchen and TV room, but lights out at 11pm. Key deposit is a bit steep (20€). Early check-out and no luggage room means, if taking a bus, you'll likely wait for hours WITH all your bags. I wouldn't stay here long, but OK for 1 night.

Summer Cadiz

Cadiz, Spain

Took longer to find than directions imply! Central market and beach nearby. The few hostels in town all seem overpriced (no exception here). Staff were friendly and helpful when asked, yet still seemed disinterested. Full kitchen and the common room were great. There are lockers in the room, but STILL: the front door always right open + no locks on room doors! So ground floor anyone can walk right in and enter your room + staff weren't always at the desk. Why not just have keys or a buzz-in??

As the name suggests, this is more of a small, simple hotel than a hostel. But the value is worth it. Ronda is small, so the location is perfect, not too far from anything. We only stayed one night, so no complaints about the room, don't expect anything too fancy (as cheap students, we didn't!). Only real complaint was that the shower was pretty weak and didn't feel too clean. But the owners are nice enough, and the breakfast (though simple) was pretty good. I would stay here again!


Granada, Spain

Here you feel relaxed and welcome right away. The design of the place is funky and fresh, just beneath the Alhambra. Plenty of bars, tapas and whatever you want just down the hill. The rooftop terrace has amazing views! Juan is great, friendly and very helpful. A/C in room, though we didn't need it (in Sept). Only tiny issue: toilet door-lock was broke (don't ppl knock??), breakfast is a bit simple (but there are plenty of cafes nearby anyhow!). Best hostel I stayed in in Spain. 100% recommend.

Patio 19

Malaga, Spain

A nice family-run hostel in an old building with a small inner courtyard. Located just northeast of the city centre, with plenty of cafes, bars, restaurants and tapas within walking distance. Great, real breakfast is included! I would definitely stay here again. There is a small kitchen area on the first floor, though I can't recall if there was a stove (I think not), but you can still prepare simple things. It could get hot in summer (duh), but wasn't a problem in Sept, but there are fans.

Jardim de Santos Hostel

Lisbon, Portugal

Good location, near to where you want to be, but still a little removed from too much noise. Hostel is big, bright, open and clean. It was a quiet time of year when I was there, and so was the hostel, but I'm not complaining about that! Would definitely stay here again. The staff were also very kind and helpful.
