We stayed as a party of four adults inte ding to use it as a base for a few visits to Gibraltar. Period booked was for the 11th Sept to 14th Sept using two separate rooms.
What a great find as it turned out. The Hostel is a family run business, but the proprietor made it feel like we were honoured guests in his own home.
The hostel is situated about 500 meters or so from the Gibraltar border. It is a pleasant flat walk across a public square, then through a bustling cafe area. Plenty of opportunity to have snacks if you can't wait to cross the border.
The hostel reception area/bar/restaurant is on entry to the Hostel. The premises immediately strike you as being clean and tidy. Most of which has been recently refurbished. One lift serves all 4 floors, but as there are only 17 rooms and a perfectly adequate stairway, there is rarely any wait.
The rooms are pleasantly furnished with massive wardrobe storage. There is an en suite bathroom with both bath and shower. Both rooms are clean and tidy.
Requests for extra pillows were dealt with immediately. Service to the dining tables for food and drink was immediate as the reception desk is in the same room. Snacks were delicious and made to order.
An evening meal is available for only 9 euros which comprised 3 courses, with a perfectly adequate choice. Couple this with reasonably priced drinks which were on the large side and a nothing is too much trouble attitude from the staff and you realise why this is so positive a review.
The Hostel offers no parking facility, but there is a public car park just opposite which is about 20 euros for 24 hrs.
I must point out the role played by the proprietor, whose name for the moment escapes me. He is there from early in the morning until late at night making ones stay delightful and inspiring his family and staff to care for the customer. I have no hesitation in recommending La Campana.
