Hostal San Jose
Ranked #8 of 11 San Jose B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 June 2014

The pension in nicely located just a stone's throw away from the beach.
The top floors rooms have balconies with a sea view.
The rooms are basic, but clean and nicely looking.
WI-fi is sometimes not working, but it is free, and it is in the room.

It is a simple place, but has all you need if you are just looking for a clean and comfy place to sleep, as you spend your days on the beach.

The reception of the pension is in a nearby Hotel Don Ignacio, so go there first before you arrive to the pension.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor has no sea view, only the ones on the top floors.

We booked for 1 Saturday night and were so impressed with location and quality for low budget at 45€ accommodation that we booked another night for 30€. Will stay here again but need to have an apartment next time as eating out 3 times was too expensive for us. We were only a few minutes down the steps to the beach and even the walk back up the steps or the gentle hill should not put you off other reviews for this hostel.

San Jose is a bohemian predominantly Spanish resort, which is surrounded by fantastic locations of natural beauty. Historically the area of Nijar, of which it is a part, has been home to many major film sets from spaghetti westerns, such as "The Good, the bad and the ugly" starring Clint Eastwood, through to Indiana Jones and his last crusade and more recently Susanne Bier's film "Brothers". All this to say that when you're in San Jose the last thing you'll want to do is stay indoors. So opting for a well-priced basic self-accommodation room with a neat terrace and views of the sea and surrounding hills is a good choice. The main points in favour of this hostal are the price, the air-conditioning in the room, the cleanliness, the proximity to the beach, and the possibility of using the Hotel Don Ignacio's swimming pool. Oh and of course the Wifi was also helpful. The beaches at Cabo de Gata, including Playa Monsul where Indiana Jones was filmed and Playa Genoveses are stark in their beauty, wild and accept dogs. The restrictions on cars parking next to these beaches means that they will never be packed and only early-risers, mountain bikers or hikers will make it there... San Jose front is lined in the evenings with small jewellery stands, which have well-priced creative fare. The hostal was therefore absolutely suitable for my needs on this holiday.

Room Tip: all the rooms have terraces so couldn't recommend one in particular.
