Expert review of Hostal Parque

Safe, modern and a cut above most other Ibiza town hostels - a real find for fussy travellers.

A nice modern alternative to the zillions of rustic or run-down options in Ibiza town, Hostal Parque is clean, modern, safe and has great food – all high priorities for me. While some rooms are small and a tad clinical, it’s all about the location for me, right in the heart of the main plaza, with the world (well, Ibiza town!) at your feet below.

Location: 

Presiding over the end of Ibiza town’s prettiest square, Plaza del Parque, and sitting at the base of the imposing stone walls of the ancient fortified city, Dalt Vila, Hostal Parque is surrounded by bars, great restaurants for all budgets and within minutes of the best shops. It’s an area buzzing with excitement from breakfast through till the very early hours, and I always feel very safe walking through the well-lit surrounds to the 24-hour reception – a big plus for girls travelling solo.

Bedrooms: 

Standard rooms are quite small (and some pokey singles don’t have windows) but they are modern and very clean. Personally, I love the aticos (Hostal Parque's version of penthouses) as they're more like a boutique hotel room than basic hostel digs (and priced accordingly) with huge comfy beds and a large, sun-drenched wooden roof terraces with views straight up to the cathedral. Sightseeing while sunbathing – now that’s my type of holiday.

Public areas: 

The lofty reception area - open 24-hours - is at the base of the stairs leading up to the rooms and is joined on to the café, a great place for checking emails (or Facebook) with a coffee. It’s a pretty messy space, as the desk is covered with flyers and leaflets of things to do, but that’s not a bad thing, as the flyers are more informative than the staff!

Eating and drinking: 

The ground floor café is an Ibiza institution. Open from 7am and serving up breakfast in typical Spanish (I love the tortilla), English, German and French styles until 2pm. Then the varied daily menu takes over – simple and tasty bites like soup and risotto of the day, roast chicken and pasta dishes; good holiday fuel ups. In December, they set up an amazing oyster bar outside, complete with red carpet and Champagne.

Leisure facilities: 

Staff can arrange any kind of activities you’re after - whether a boat trip to Formentera, horse riding or Spanish lessons. Just ask. Repeatedly.

Service: 

Service here is slow to say the least - you may have to ask for things more than once. I get the feeling some of the staff just can’t be bothered helping tourists, which is a shame, given that they work in hospitality.

Who stays there: 

A mish-mash of travellers from all over the globe. Have a listen to the conversations around you in the café and you’ll hear German, French, Dutch, Australian and English accents prevailing.

Price advice: 

It's not cheap given the hostel tag and prices are pretty much non-negotiable. I’d advise booking early, to get a room with a view as they're often booked well in advance.

Pros: 
Modern and clean
Very safe
Cons: 
Slow service
