Reviewed 14 March 2012

Hadn't stayed here for a couple of years. Cheap place to stay, not far from train or bus station. Now all the rooms have a different theme, love it.

El Cid hotel provides cheap accommodation in Fuengirola. Location is good - it's about 10 minutes walk from the beach and there're a lot of restaurants and cafes near by. The rooms are spacious; we had a tv-set, an AC and a balcony in our room.

The main problem was about linen - it was clean but smelled with chlorine.

I appreciate we all have different ideas of what constitutes a good hostel, but please don`t consider staying here. We booked 9 nights through Hostel Bookers & stayed 30 minutes, 15 of those involving hotel clerk trying to find our booking details! We were directed to room, lift & coridors smelt awful, room like wise. Nothing like the pictures on web site. Hotel not aware of free airport pick up & breakfast advertised on Hostel Bookers website. Yes the hostel has had patio doors double glazed, but no other improvements in evidence. Room dilapidated & smelly, bathroom nothing like pictures. Of great concern was illuminated signs outside hotel advertising rooms by the hour??!! Payment for full stay demanded by desk staff, we declined stating above reasons. Transrered to anotherclean oleasant hostel!

There was a problem with my booking because at that time they were not affiliated with HostelBookers.com. They took this Hostel over from the old owners who just left it and ran in the night. They are working steadily to upgrade it and put it back into good condition. They refunded my deposit saying it was more important to have a satisfied customer.

All windows and doors are up graded to double insulated glass so you will get a decent nights sleep. The rooms are clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The rates are good. My room had a freshly renovated bathroom that was great. While I was a bit leery at first after the 1st night I felt very safe and found my 5 days there very pleasurable. It is centrally located. If you are not looking for luxury this is it.
