A KALEIDOSCOPIC explosion of artistic colour greets visitors to Hostal Plaza in San Pedro.

Most of the rooms and communal areas have bespoke murals which present visitors with a bold sensory delight.

The project is the brainchild of the Wynn family – Gary, Karen and sons Richard and Michael, who moved to San Pedro from the UK four-and-a-half years ago.

“There are so many hostels in Spain we wanted something a bit different so we would be remembered,” said Karen.

“We invite artists who are wanting to build their portfolio to come and paint at the hostel, we do this on an exchange basis, offering free food and accommodation and a chance to have a holiday in San Pedro.  We supply all the materials…… they supply their talent.”

The hostel has 18 ensuite rooms and a lovely roof terrace.
