    The Spanish by the Sea Hostel is located one street away from the main road and therefor is very close to all the bars, restaurants and supermarkets but still not too loud. Lot of the people there take Spanish classes and it‘s easy to meet new people. They also offer different activities everyday and if you are a Spanish student there they are mostly for free. Definitely can recommend it!

    Fabulous

    (Based on experience in 25+ hostels in this regions): The other (north) side of the island is a little more happening but it's a very short walk. Staff is incredible, free breakfast is great, bathrooms were dirtier than I hoped. I've seen some better ones but I've seen far worse on the island as well. I would check out Cliff's first and this second.

    Booked ‘Basic Twin Private Shared Bathroom’, but were given a private with 4 single beds and private bathroom. Pros: nice communal area, good location and kitchen Cons: terrible wifi, Spanish lessons right outside our room at 8am Not much atmosphere, other guests weren’t all that friendly - although not hostels fault.

    Good fun but would need more fans in the dorm rooms. The neighbourhood is cool and the whole experience is nice. Staff are friendly, responsive and helpful.

    What a crappy place. The building and rooms are old and ugly; you’ll feel “yuck” when you see it. The shower has no hot water and the door is broken. Basically the facilities are from WW1 and beyond repair. The rude guy at the front desk is obviously fed up with work, called another guest a j**k, and showed up 2 hours late in the morning. Instead of apologizing he just came up with excuses. I’ve staid in >100 hostels in my life and never given such a low score before. Stay on another island!
