Why a hostel?
You do not have to spend a lot of money in order to visit Spain, especially Alicante. If you choose hostels for accommodation instead of the expensive luxury hotels, you have the opportunity to save a lot of money that you can use for something else. Here is a list of some of the best hostels in Alicante; I hope you will find it useful!
La Milagrosa and Versalles Pensions
La Milagrosa is a hostel that you will find in the beautiful old town, patiently waiting for you on one of the narrow streets. It is situated less than 100 meters from the spectacular esplanade and the beautiful beach, right next to the fantastic Church of Santa Maria. It offers services like rooms with bathrooms, television, internet and breathtaking view towards the castle. For just 55 € a night for two persons, I think it deserves a look. Versalles will receive you with one of the friendliest atmospheres you have ever encountered. It is just 40 € a night, price available for two persons. This hostel is perfect, especially for students who do not mind sharing the room or bathroom with 2 or 3 of their colleagues. However, everything is very clean, so thinking about the budget, you should definitely take it into consideration.
Gran Alacant Guesthouse
This guesthouse is situated very close to Santa Pola, so it has an easy access to the swimming pool. The biggest advantage of this guesthouse is that it is situated very close to the shopping centers, the beaches and the restaurants, so you will not have to spend a lot of money on transportation. The only food service it offers is the breakfast, so take this into consideration. Even though rooms are not connected to the internet, you have internet access from the computers of the hosts. Gran Alacant asks for cash payment on arrival, so if this is fine with you, then the hostel is perfect. However, keep in mind one thing: smoking is not allowed indoors, only on the terrace, so if you are a smoker, this might not be a suitable place for you!
Goya de Alicante Hotel
The 84 rooms of this hotel are very comfortable and their big advantage is that they are fully equipped with everything you need. The restaurant is a fine one, so you will have the opportunity to enjoy delicious traditional dishes. Try it!
