X hostel Alicante is by far one of the best hostels I've stayed in. Very clean, great communal areas, amazing staff who made me feel so welcome and were so helpful - thanks so much to Rosie, Verity, Stacey and Joni! Great bunch of girls who are so good at their jobs, nothing was too much to ask of them!...

I've been to X Hostel in Alicante twice now, extending my stay each time. The couple who run the hostel are very friendly, welcoming and have a lot of awesome advice about the city. The best part about X is the rooftop bar. Everyone having dinner up there together is always the highlight and if you travel solo, you are...

This hostel is probably our favourite so far out of our 8 months of travels! Loved the small hostel vibe. Everyone was friendly and staff helped to bring people together every night which made it a really fun atmosphere! Awesome happy hour specials, so nice that they're not trying to rip you off constantly like a lot of big hostels....

This is a laid back hostel with cool and friendly staff. We were here for 1 night. The rooms, washrooms and halls etc. are a little old fashioned though. The location is good, but then Alicante is a small town. It is a nice one to spend a night or two.
