Reviewed 17 June 2014

I first stayed at La Campana 6 years ago when it was a pretty dark and dismal place with cockroaches so big you could put a saddle on them. Six years later, and they've done a pretty good job of renovating it. Don't get me wrong: it's not the AC Hotel, but for the money, it's excellent value: the rooms are bright, the bathroom much cheerier (hot water in the shower), and the staff really very friendly. For anyone wanting a base to either see the area or go to Gib, this is a great value.

When we arrived the proprietor could not have been more helpful, he was lovely. He was full of advice and gave us an excellent recommendation for a tapas bar. Our room was clean but a little disappointing, we had nowhere to put anything and the shelf in the bathroom was not level so we couldn't use it to put any toiletries on. Room was clean though. Location was good to walk to Gibraltar.

We stayed for a long weekend at Hostal La Campana and I have to say it was fantastic. It is family run and nothing seems too much trouble. The Proprietor speaks very good English and is very helpful. (not all staff speak English though, so it may be useful to bring a small Spanish language book)
We had an apartment on First Floor and a very strong wifi signal throughout our stay. The accommodation was spacious, clean and tidy with a daily mail service.
The en suite had a shower and a bath and there seemed to be hot water throughout the day. Beds were very comfortable; with additional pillows and blankets available in the wardrobe.

Breakfast (optional) was charged at a 2 euros per person and was freshly made toast with a cafe con leche (white milky coffee); both were delicious.

The walk to the boarder of Gibraltar was 5-10 minutes and is very direct.

I much preferred this accommodation to any I have previously stayed in on Gibraltar and I will definitely be returning again.

If there is one negative, it is that the hostal can be noisy at night. By the very fact that it is a hostal, it attracts groups of young people to it and they were a little noisy (within their rooms) late in to the night. I did go and knock the door and politely ask for them to keep the noise down and they responded immediately with an apology and noise reduction!

Last tip... visit nearby La Chimenea for the best tapas in the area. Look it up on tripadvisor....

Room Tip: Book a room on Floor 1 if wifi signal is important to you as we had excellent wifi throughout our st...

Facts: very close to the border with Gibraltar, very clean & well looked after, great value in a good price. Good location also to visit the City of La Linea. Next door is you will have a very tasty tapas bar..where you can seat, relax & have a tasty bit & glass of a good wine... You will also see the chef cooking for you... Typical Spanish tapas bar...

Staff: extremely nice & helpful, I wasn't well & they were helpful with extending the stay with no additional charges and help my boyfriend to find a nearest pharmacy. I was very grateful. In a normal hotel they will just say that the check out has passed and you need to pay for another day..In La Campala they were friendly & understanding .

Many many thanks guys! We surly will be coming back...

Ps when we visited the downstairs restaurant was still being done so we haven't had a chance to tast any food, but im more then sure..its very tasty

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.

Wifi non existent in room and needed for planning so it was very disappointing that it wasn't available. Black mold under window in room was a bit nasty. Only one plug in the room one in bathroom so it was hard to charge up camera and phone. The Air Con worked good which was nice in July. TV was a small flat screen multi channels. The bathroom was a bit strange 1/2 tube size created a pool of water out into the room so watch the shower pressure. The knob to turn the shower head was broken off. They also had strange long pillows rather then regular individual pillows. Smal tear open shampoo and shower gel and small hand soap bar were good as we had forgotten ours. The closet came with an eclectic assortment of hangers. Small desk and chair but would need to move the bed if you want to use it. The stairwell was a storage of shelves two bed farms and one mattress. The was a lift although we didn't use it.
Restaurant downstairs also operates as reception. Parking garage across the street although the hotel has two spots out front. The main road that runs into Gibraltar is just around the corner and the border is about a 5 minute walk
About 3-4 streets down from the hotel is an area of shops and restaurants plenty to choose from.
Overall a very good location and a hit the budget mark so would stay again only if wifi is assured.

Room Tip: Parking free on no color curbs, blue pay meter yellow business use. Find a non painted curb and par...
