Good hostel, only problem is the lights in the rooms can't be turned off and they get shut off by staff at "11pm" but if the staff member forgets they can stay on for as long as 1:30am from experience.

Good hostel, great kitchen. Noisy, walls are very thin. The wifi is available in the rooms but very hard to connect. An enjoyable hostel to stay at

the only downside to this place is our aircon didn't work and didn't get fixed or even looked at while we were there. everything else was great, the common area was a good place to meet new people at most times of the day and night. the pub crawls are not the greatest but its only due to some of the bars being either to pricey or just to much effort to get from one bar to the other. good hostel, great staff, heaps of fun, close to the metro and an easy walk to the beach and La Rambla.

This hostel is great, the location is awesome and the rooms are clean and spacious. We were only meant to stay 3 nights but extended our stay for another 2 nights due to the value for money of this place and the city of Alicanté is well worth a visit. We would stay at this hostel again for sure.

this place stinks of cigarette smoke from the moment you walk in. we had to change rooms due to it being so bad in our first room, we asked to move to a room facing the outside of the building so we could open the window to try quell the smoke smell. the staff are rather rude at times but the young guy that works there was a great help. we also had a suspicion that the cleaner would smoke in the rooms due to finding cigarette ash on our window sill in our room that wasn't there earlier.

Great place to stay in the quiet back streets just off a main road and pretty close to everything you need. The atmosphere is far from a party atmosphere but that could be easily fixed with some fun nights up on the roof top terrace a couple times a week. The staff are awesome and speak very good English. When we arrived the staff member that checked us in, sat us down with a map and explained a whole heap of things about the city and marked them on the map and was happy to answer our questions.

This hostel is great, worth staying at for sure. There is no real common room so meeting new people is something that won't happen here. The walking tour with Pablo is excellent, he's a champ. The tapas tour is not bad to have a bit of fun but the majority of tapas is just bread. The pub crawl is fun but needs a better ratio in the clubs, way to many dicks on the dance floor.

Booked a 6 person dorm and turned out to be only 5 beds in the room due to it could and should have only had 4 beds in the room, typical money hungry hostels. the location was second to none and would recommend this hostel just on location. they also need to do some work on making it a hostel, for example, 1 or 2 power points in a "6 person" dorm is not nearly enough and the bar needs to get a pub crawl going or something to bring travellers together.

Had a great time at this hostel but next time we would ask to not be on the first floor as its just above a pub, the late night music was fine cause we were usually partying but the cleaners and pub staff would blast the music early in the morning and would wake up the whole dorm. when i told the staff of this they said they werent playing music and i was hearing things. food was awesome and vibe was awesome.

Bloody great joint to stay, just needs aircon in summer cause it gets real hot and sticky in the rooms. the food is great and is cooked by an absolute champion. the beer is the coldest in Palma De Mallorca and the location is pretty dam good. definitely recommend this place but hopefully they can get aircon.

Travelling in a group of 4, we booked a 4 bed room and got a 3 bed room with a roll in fold out bed as the 4th bed. we raised our concern and it was all fixed the next day but we should not have even needed to raise any concern as we should have got the 4 bed room straight away.way to often are hotels and hostels tryin to get away with this sort of stuff so make sure you speak up if it happens to you.

If you want to party dont look anywhere else. just be sure to upgrade your accomodation to the rooms with aircon otherwise be prepared to sweat like you have never sweat before, the cheap rooms range from tents to round concrete rooms that get that hot you cant be in there. this place is on the beach and the party just never seems to stop, IOS IOS IOS PARTY PARTY PARTY, cant wait to go back!

Great location, room was too small for us to fit our luggage in and the bed was tiny!

Where do I start. I really dont think this place should be on hostelworld.com, as this website is used by lots of young people who want to have some fun and this campsite does not like fun. there is a curfew of 11pm and if you dont abide by this curfew to the minute they get very aggro and abuse you in italian even if you go outside the campsites property. This is the worst place i have ever stayed. The location is also very average, it is atleast 45 min train from La Spezia. Comfy beds though.
