“Wonderful Experience and Fabulous Place”
Reviewed 7 October 2011

we initially booked six nights here, but loved San Jose so much we booked another four nights. We also totally loved staying here. Our room was spacious, clean and had a great roof top balcony and was positioned in a nice part of San Jose just a couple of minutes walk from the restuarants shops and bars, yet quiettly tucked away.
The staff here were very friendly and helpful, especially the lady who seemed to be there the most with the short dark hair and lovely perfume and who spoke Spanish, French and English. I wish I knew her name as she made us so welcome and our stay even more pleasant than it was already. There was a spotless looking swimming pool too which I never manged to get into as we spent so much time on the beaches and in the sea. Not too far to walk to either of the main beautiful beaches Playa de los Genoveses (approx 30 mins but seems more like 15) and to Playa de los Monsul (approx 45 mins but seems more like 25), although all along are loveley little coves and beaches such as los luna. Make sure you carry on past Monsul and climb up to the look out tower too. If you stay here you wont be dissapointed.
Thankyou C and J X

Room Tip: Go for a balcony, if you can.

49 Euros for en-suite double in clean room with balcony (agree view from is not much to write home about) 12 minute walk into town with good choice of reasonably priced bars and restaurants. The hostal had a breakfast room but no evening meals. Not too touristy (few Brits) and out of town beaches fantastic. Would stay again if in area

We spent 2 nights in this hostal. Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable, air-conditioned and had a nice small balcony with a plastic table and two chairs. It's about 5-10 minutes walking from San Jose' beach and city centre and it's on the way to the stunning Playa de los Genoveses and Playa del Monsul. Friendly staff and free parking.
Very good value for the price.

All over average. The hotel faces the main road in to the village, so don't expect a view from your veranda. The hotel is a short walk in to the village center.
If you don't expect more than the basics, this will be a good place to stay.
