Good location, good functional facility that met my needs for a clean, room for one person with wifi that actually works
We originally intended to stay in a hotel in Castro rather than a hostel. However, by the time we came to make our booking all of the hotel accommodation was gone. We chose the Villa de Castro on the basis of its good reviews. In general, I would concur with the favourable tenor of most of the reviews. For an overnight stay it would be ideal. The room was bright and clean and well equipped.Better, for instance, than a Travel Lodge in the UK. It had a slightly quirky layout that you wouldn't find in an anonymous British chain hotel room. For instance, the bathroom towel rail was located just in front of and above the toilet so that any towels hung down over your head. The bathroom had a large toilet roll holder and a soap dispenser. Clearly neither of them were ever replenished. There was a loose toilet roll on the top of an adjacent cupboard. You were expected to provide your own soap although there were some sachets of shower gel. The room was cleaned and the towels replaced regularly. You could request the room to be serviced by leaving a tag on the door handle. The kitchen was reasonably well equipped although there were very few utensils or crockery. For British visitors an all-important omission was a kettle. We bought one for 8 euros in a neighbouring hardware store. Essentially, the kitchen was adequate for preparing a continental-type breakfast. There was a bakery about 50 metres away where we bought pastries for breakfast every day. The staff were very friendly but you do need to have some rudimentary Spanish. My son wanted to go to Castro to practise his Spanish and he had plenty of opportunity to do so. Without his ability with the language we might have had more difficulty with communication.
The main drawback with our room was the air conditioning. We had chosen it particularly for the air conditioning but the location of the unit, just under the window, meant that it was very ineffective. We tried using it on the first night but the noise disturbed our sleep without making any difference to the temperature. We managed thereafter by opening the window. My son's room had no air conditioning but his was no warmer than ours. Other reviewers have commented on the location of the reception desk. When we arrived it was on the second floor which was quite awkward with heavy cases. During our stay it was relocated to the first floor landing just outside the communal kitchen. This was much more satisfactory. The hostel has no lift and would be unsuitable for the elderly and infirm. The other possible drawback was the absence of any car park. Car parking is at a premium in Castro. There is a large underground car park near the sea front that costs 14 euros per day. This is only a short walk from the hostel. However, the hostel is clearly unsuitable for those who want ready access to their vehicle. We hired a car for one day of our holiday and parked it in the underground car park. This seems a very secure location and not too far from the hostel. Incidentally, there is no car hire company in Castro. You have to go to Laredo or Bilbao to hire a car. For most of the time we used the buses which are frequent, cheap and convenient. In summary, the hostel provides good value accommodation at a convenient central location in Castro. It would be excellent for visitors touring around the region. It is not particularly suitable for the elderly or those with limited Spanish skills.
The hotel kitchen and laundery you could use if you wanted to cook or wash while staying at the hotel. Helpful staff.
Upstairs reception meant you didn't regularly see the staff.
nice little hostal in close walking distance to the historic center as well as to the beach. Relatively quiet, very clean, friendly staff.
parking is a bit of a problem in this location, but this can't be blamed to the hotel.
Clean, comfortable and ideal for a short stay
Wifi was't great but it wasn't a huge problem for us
Location was perfect, staff was more than accommodating and very helpful. Our room gave us a good view of all the parades. Wonderful hotel.
Great location, Comfortable, clean, refurbished & spacious rooms. A beer vending machine at reception was novel. Very friendless and pleasant staff.
I was a bit concerned about the fire evacuation plan given only one access.
Location in town. Room facilities good.
Having to pay to park. Staff were pleasant but some were confused and hard to find common language. I am fluent in English and French but not Spanish.
Cercanía al casco vorjo
Really good value for money. Friendly and helpful staff.
Didn't get WiFi signal in the room (far away from router, I guess).
good location for a short stay
very loud and poorly soundproofed
Good location ,friendly staff,
three sets of stairs
Convenient location in a very beautiful town.
Staff unable to communicate. The Kitchenette (main reson we choose this Hotel over others) had appalling facilities; chipped plates, no mugs, sub-standard cookware and kitchen tools. Efforts to rectify the issues with the staff were uneccessarily frustrating and complicated. Unsafe electrical wiring attached to the bedhead that kept faulting. This needs urgent attention.
Excellent location, great budget hotel, lovely staff and great town. The hotel was perfect. We stayed two nights before we took our ferry home and I wished we had longer. Hotel is two mins from the beach and five mins from the 'old town' front. We stayed in a room with my partner and three children (7,5,2) and we were really comfortable. If you stay three nights or more you could use the kitchen which would be a bonus, but we found great bar 'Mano's' where we had drinks and enough 'Raciones' for our dinner for 16 euros, super fresh calimari and prawns. Better than the 'pricier' bars on the front.
Wish 'dinner' started a bit earlier in Spain!
