The Youth Hostel is situated in the district of Contrueces, on the outskirts of the city, thus facilitating the enjoyment of both rural and urban Gijón. Although the hostel is located in a peaceful spot, it is also very close to the city centre, which may be reached on foot or using public or private transport.

It is a manor house dating from the end of the 17th century, remodelled in 1992 as a hostel, conserving some of its most notable architectural elements. A new remodelling in 2001 enlarged the capacity of the hostel to the 116 beds it has at present, as well as incorporating improvements in tourist facilities that are both different and of interest to users.


The hostel remains open 24 hours a day, which means that users can enter and leave when they need to, as long as they respect the rest of the other people staying there and quiet hours from midnight to 8am.
