    Great place to stay. The walls had hand painted art and there was even a map of the world with flags painted in the outlines of the countries. The staff was great, bathrooms clean and they even offer activities. I went on a pub crawl sponsored by the hostel and had a great time and after checkout, they even stored my backpack so I could go out for a bit before I left town.

    This hostel was everything you could want; a great place to go whether you want a relaxing low-key trip or to go out and party. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable (especially Henry!) and socializing is encouraged. The facilities are cozy and clean. Overall, it was a great place to be and I would definitely stay again!

    One of the best hostel experiences I’ve had! Not only was the staff helpful and friendly, but you could tell they all got along and loved working there. The kitchen was fully stocked and even had spices. It was so easy to meet people and everything was very clean! I would recommend this hostel to anyone going to Alicante.

    I had a lovely time! It's a place filled with great staff and social travelers. Immediately upon my arrival, I was greeted and well taken care of. After a very early flight, Henry at reception offered to make me coffee. Since I was traveling alone he was kind enough to invite me out for beers later with other staff and visitors; it was a great! No worries in traveling alone, Henry will be sure to chat on and on and on, mostly about himself (kidding mate). Thx for the charger Emily! Cheers X! :)

    Had a great time here! I was delayed getting to the hostel in time for check-in, but the girl running the front desk waited for me even when she couldn't get ahold of me since I had no service being abroad. That was super nice of her because I otherwise would've had to sleep on the streets! I liked all the people I met in hostel! It had a nice terrace and lobby to hang out in. My only complaint would be that there was no organized gatherings in the hostel to encourage socializing.

    Staff was friendly and helpful. Social areas seemed nice, although I really didn't have the chance to use because of short stay. Confy beds. Good and safe location. Super handy for railway station, about10 mins walk. Toilets/bathroom arrangement & design really should be improved, 2 toilets/showers per floor for so many beds is not good.Bathroom I used had the most awkward arrangement; toilet tugged on a corner so you had to really squish between sink & shower to pass..building regulations plze!

    A bit disappointed. Limited access to common area because it's closed before 9am and the staff use it as dining area in the evening. The hostel is very close to train station but away from the beach, restaurants and night life. Any noise from the stairs can be heard in the room.
