The negatives though are basic decor and flooring, it was lacking in drawer and worktop space and with only one power point we were pleased that we travel with multi point extension lead for recharging mobiles, etc. The lighting was a single ceiling light, OK for normal use but no good for reading. . The towels were well used and designed for small people and you have to speak Spanish for the TV.
We stayed here so we could easily walk over the frontier into Gibraltar, especially for the New Year’s Eve fireworks and festivities there. If you are lucky you get to park immediately outside where they have two on street parking spaces. Failing that there is an underground car park across the road which will work out expensive so try to find an on road space. We left our car in situ for the whole of the five days and with the hotel business card in the windscreen there was no trouble and it was free. The hotel reception is manned by the proprietor (Andreas, good English), his father (very little English), and two sons (ditto grandfather), all of whom were very friendly and helpful.
We stayed in Room 201 which was large, basic, the bed firm but comfortable. The shower had good pressure and plenty of hot water. The air con worked well and the wi-fi is excellent.
This is a good standard hostel and for the price extremely good value. The bonus for us was we were allowed to keep our breakfast yoghurt in their fridge over night, the other point being its location for strolling into the heart of Gibraltar. Would we stay here again, yes, it fitted the bill for us but then it wouldn’t be everybody’s cup of tea but with two minor additions to the room it would be immeasurably improved. A) a small kitchen fridge and B) a room safe, although Andreas said we could leave items in his personal safe. A special thank you to Andreas who even moved his own car out of the space in front of the hotel so that we could park there for our final night without having to pay for garage public parking.
