Very basic, somewhere to get your head down

Posted Jun 2, 2014
Pros: The beds were large single beds. The air conditioning is cool. The restaurant has a wide choice of meals & daily specials.
Cons: English breakfast included in the board basis. Make tea/coffee making facilities available in the rooms. Service with a smile by some of the staff.
Location: Location is excellent - right in the heart of the West End. Close to the Bay & the beach, supermarket shops & bars & restaurants on the front.
When we first arrived at Hostal Florencio the reception area told us we were going to enjoy our stay. We were very wrong. The website stated the following for their standard rooms: Double or single occupancy - Beds were larger than your average single size bed :) Bathroom with shower and toilet Starter Kit - Shower was a dribble of water at different speeds :( TV and Wi-Fi - The TV had nothing but Spanish channels :( & the Wi-Fi did not work :( Mesa desk - Did not see the point of this if there was no mirror in front of it to turn it into a dressing table :( Air Conditioning and Heating - This worked but we did not use it as the rooms were cool enough :) We were expecting tea/coffee making facilities in the room & although it wasn't stated, we thought it was standard to have this facility but we were highly mistaken. Some of the hostel staff were very pleasant whilst others were rude - we didn't even get a 'did you enjoy your stay?' when we checked out. We opted for half board accommodation but the menus were very basic with 3 options each on starter, dinner & dessert for dinner - continental breakfast with stale bread & funny tasting ham for breakfast. An English breakfast was available separately for only 6 Euros & the dinners were just as cheap. The swimming pool is pretty much in the shade for a majority of the day as it is situated below the pool lounging area which is a sun huge trap. However location was ideal situated in the middle of the West End.

Started rough

The hot water in our room didn't work when we got there, and when they fixed it the shower stopped so we had to take baths but the water pressure was so bad it took an hour to fill the tub. Other than that everything was good the wifi was great.

If you're looking to stay right in San An, and are on a budget, this is a great option.

A short walk away from the harbour, very cheap and good value all around. Better than I expected when I booked.

Basic but ideal for clubbing holiday!

I was a little worried about booking a hostel, but felt little difference to booking a 2/3* hotel. The rooms were clean, basic, everything you would need (inc private bathroom, daily fresh towels). Location 5 min walk to west end / 10 to beach. Quiet stay, had no trouble at all. The only thing to mention, the pool & sun loungers are on two levels which makes it difficult to be social with other hotel guests.

Very good for the price

Pros: Location and price
Cons: Internet security on the top floor (4th) did not have any security.
Location: 5 min walk to beach, bus station & West End.
Central to the beach, bus station and the West End. Internet in the rooms was great. TV language was in Spanish, however, you can switch the language to English on the English programs. Bathroom layout (toilet in particular) was too cosy for my liking. There are a few stairs that cannot be avoided. Traveling heavy can produce some challenges.
