“very satisfied to a solo traveller on a budget”
Reviewed 16 November 2012

The location was great for me, only went straight downhill from the bus station and took a left turn at the end of the road, 15 minutes. And it's located on the rim of the old town. I got a single room without bathroom for 22 eu. The shared bathroom was on the hallway but quite private, we gotta have the key to use the bathroom and I could take time in there. I felt like it'd be the same as the one in the room but this one just located outside. The room was small but not cramped. The window looked out to the front road, foliage trees, the top of the church from the old town and the sky. My room wasn't colorful as shown in the pictures on the internet. It was just simple, soft tone and clean. I prefer it this way. They had sink in my room, that was strange for me but can't deny it was quite convenient. The staff was kind. I got offered the town map on arrival (their map had the town in wider scope than I had from the tourist information center.) I took my time at the lobby surfing the net a lot, the staff prepared seat for me, provided me candies saying sweet for energy :D I had good experience there.

The Hostal Mindanao was a real find and as good as anywhere that I have stayed at the price. It is handily placed for the bus station and the major sights of Salamanca. Initially I had shared facilities and asked to be moved when an en suite became available. This happened and I was helped with the move. It is clean and with character. Wi-fi is available and 24hr reception with very helpful staff. I will stay there again when I visit this remarkable city.

Room Tip: Rooms on third floor out of range for the wi-fi.

I stayed at Hostal Mindanao in November 2009 when I came to Salamanca for a job teaching English. Later in 2010, visiting members of my family also came to stay. Monte and his wife could not have done more for us, the room was clean and comfortable, we had help with getting to know Salamanca and other parts of Castilla y Leon with plenty of recommendations. It's affordable, and close to the centre. I would highly recommend the Hostal, and when I come back to Salamanca I'll stay there again. Thanks guys!

I stayed at Hostal Mindanao on late November, 2011. I had a great overall experience and will recommend it to everyone wanting to spend a few days in Salamanca.

The hotel is very well located. From it, you can easily walk to both the bus station and the Plaza Mayor and everywhere in the city center. Also, it is located next to several hospitals.

The installations are actually very good for the affordable price. However, the best thing about Hostal Mindanao is the staff. They were very helpful to me providing general information about the tourist attractions of the city, nearby places to eat, internet cafes, bus schedules to other cities and a place for buying an electrical plug adapter. On top of that, when I lost one of my contact lenses, they even helped me find an optician clinic that replaced it in less than 48 hours.

When I go back to Salamanca, I will certainly stay again at Hostal Mindanao.

Staying at Hostal Mindanao was a great experience. I stayed in Salamanca for a week. Hostal Mindanao was close to the Plaza Mayor, yet far enough to provide a relaxing, quiet, experience. It is located on one of the major streets that runs around the center of the city allowing for easy access to anything in the city. The staff were very nice and helpful. They were courteous and always accommodating. I would recommend staying at Hostal Mindanao HIGHLY!

I stayed for a weekend in the Mindanao in a twin room in June 2006 with a friend. We were on a very tight budget and found the Mindanao met our requirements. The staff were friendly and competent and the room was clean. We paid Euro 38 per night for a twin room with 2 single beds and a private shower. My only complaint was that the balcony door didn't have a lock so we were a little nervous about leaving our bags in the room, but there were no problems. There was no air conditioning but it didn't bother us. For less than 20 quid a night each we were happy!

Recently, I have been to Salamanca. The visit was great. Salamanca is a wonderful city in which I really enjoyed learning Spanish history and art. The only problem was this "Hostal Mindanao". My room was really dirty, the bathroom was tiny, the window and doors, broken. Besides, I had booked a twin room, but they gave me a double room. My complaints were futile. My advice, choose another hotel.
