    The first thing you will notice upon arrival was friendly smile from the staff who look after the property, Very nice people who are super friendly and always ready to look after their guests. Especially BIG THANK YOU to Luis for his help & full of local knowledge and going that extra mile :)) Excellent location ( walking distance to the beach) and the price. Amazing atmosphere, we met great people while staing at the hostel which was a bonus. Hope to be back :)) Karolina & Holly X

    This is a gem. A short tram ride from Alicante brings you to within 100m of this oasis. Its 2min walk to a fabulous beach and 5 mins into El Campello town centre. The pool/kitchen/patio area is great for hanging out or having your meal. The staff were very friendly too...what more could you want? I took a mark off for the soft mattress and some bits floating in the pool. This place is great for just chilling.

    Such a cozy and beautiful hostel! It's amazing to have a pool with this range of price. It is located up on the very steep hill but the entire hostel is on the ground floor which is quite convenient.

    Not quite the hostel experience we were looking for- removed from the city centre, felt a bit like we were staying in the middle of no-where! There was only one working toilet, which wasn't ideal either. Staff was really lovely and helpful, though! This type of accommodation might work for some people, but for me it was worth it to pay a bit more and stay somewhere else.

    The guy running the hostel was really friendly. But it wasn’t right for me, I thought beach hostel near an amazing beach (and it was), nice relaxing couple of days. But the hostel is more backpackers party hostel with loud music and the most uncomfortable bed Ever. I’d booked for 2 nights but at 3am when I was still awake I booked into a new hostel for the second night because I couldn’t face another night there. However if you’re traveling around and want to meet people you might love it.
