Hi! I'm planning a 3-week-trip in Spain from late Dec. thru early Jan.

Through a guidebood "Let's go", I've selected several accomodations to stay in. Due to my budget, I always prefer a cheap place, but I also want clean, and conveniently-located places.

Among my selections:
Salamanca - Pension Estefania
Avila - Pension Continental
El Escorial - Juvenil "El Escorial"
Cordoba - Residencia Juvenil Cordoba
Sevilla - Pension Vergara
Granada - Hostal Venecia

If you have been to any of these places listed above, please give me your comments about whether you'd recommend it to others or not.

Thanks a lot!
I have the dream of smiling at you on a street of Spain this winter.

whatsinspain, just so you'll be sure what you're getting, only those two with "juvenil" in their titles are youth-hostels (called "albergue juveniles" in Spanish). The other two ("hostal" and "pension") are privately owned and operated budget hotels and you'll have your own private room - not a shared room with bunk beds like in a youth-hostel.

And if I were you, I'd be careful staying in Sevilla's Pension Viagra. I've heard stories about that place... wink
