If you want a hostel where you are going to meet people, this is it. The staff are very friendly and the rooftop terrace makes for a good house party type atmosphere. Would stay here again, highly recommend.

I've been to a ton of hostels while traveling the world and this is one of my favorite. The atmosphere was excellent as well as the location but the best part was the staff as the continually impressed me with their great attitude and overwhelming kindness.

I have since returned 2 more times, and it never disappoints. I've been to Alicante a few times, and certainly plan to return again, and it's nice to...

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.
