The second stop of our 17 day trip to Spain and France was Ibiza. We wanted a low-cost option, mainly to keep our luggage while we were out partying or lazing on the beach. Hostel Rosalia looked like an okay place while booking. But turned out to be a disaster.
It is really far from the airport (buses to San Antoni are at a frequency of 90 min from the airport). And from the bus-station it is another 15 min walk... a pain if you have luggage - as it can't even be rolled along on the cobbled streets.
We arrived at noon (we are 3 couples), and only one room was ready. The guy at the hotel desk was a bit of a slimeball. He demanded the entire payment on check in, even though 2 rooms weren't ready. And selectively understood what we were trying to communicate. We dumped the luggage in one room and waited till 1.30pm when the rooms were finally ready.
The rooms are very shady, with moldy beds. The water from the shower leaks out and forms a pool on the floor. There is only one table fan. The location also sucks, as it is about 15 min walk from the nearest beach... and far away from the party places. We rented a car, and managed to get around much more comfortably.
Oh and the pool in the pictures? It more like a little pond.More
