A Hostel With A Difference – Purple Hostel

A Hostel With A Difference – Purple Hostel

For a few weeks now, I’ve been admiring a new piece of artwork that has recently appeared on a huge wall in the back streets of San Antonio. A 20 metre squid in a gigantic goldfish bowl certainly catches the eye!
What I initially thought was the work of graffiti artists with BIG ideas, actually turns out to be something more interesting.

The wall belongs to The Purple Hostel, the first and only accommodation in San Antonio that is dedicated to the LBGT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) market.
The company responsible – Ibiza Feeling – have taken a typical no-frills budget hostel and transformed it into modern and stylish accommodation that wouldn’t look out of place in Miami!

And what a transformation it is. Anyone that remembers the old Hostel Laurel will be amazed at the changes that have taken place. The rooms now are brighter, better-appointed and beautifully decorated, and the outside area is unrecognisable to how it was before.
There is a bar serving an impressive selection of drinks and cocktails, and the large pool is surrounded by tasteful furniture and plenty of sunbeds. After a hard night’s partying, it really is a relaxing space in which to recover!
Changes have also taken place in the reception area, which is warm and welcoming and leads to a bar and restaurant seating.

The manager, Janet, tells me that Ibiza Feeling are here for the long haul, and as well as already running the Red Hotel and both the Blue and White Apartments in San Antonio, they are about to start work on another transformation; the Es Pins hotel in San Antonio Bay.

The Purple Hostel opened in the second week of June, and I’m sure many of you will agree that Ibiza Feeling should be congratulated for taking on this project and investing their time and money in this particular area of San Antonio. The hostel is located in one of the quieter streets of central San Antonio, yet just metres away from the paseo which leads to the Sunset Strip, and a short walk will take you to the nightlife of the West End and the big clubs.

The Purple Hostel adds another much-needed dimension to the accommodation market in Ibiza, but don’t forget we have many more places to choose from if you’re looking for somewhere to lay your head please get in touch.
