The Best Affordable Hostels in A Coruna, Galicia, Spain

La Coruna, or A Coruna as it is often called, is a nice seaside town with a historic old town, great food, fun bars, and plenty of culture. It's also home to the world's oldest working lighthouse, the Torre de Hercules. Other sites like the castles, museums, pre-Roman settlements, gardens, an aquarium, and more will keep you entertained if you tire of the beach or the old architecture of the old town.

Hostel-like accommodation can be somewhat limited in A Coruna, as the town is not very large and most options are hotels. The places listed here are affordable and cater to budget travelers and backpackers, although the fun dorm vibe that you're looking for might not exist here at all in any of these establishments. So, do your research first before booking, and have a great trip!
