The coach left Paris late because the driver was arguing with a passenger who had a ticket for herself but not for her baby. We nearly missed our train in Madrid because of this.

It was OK. A bit tight between chairs but fair.

Engelbert B.August 27, 2018 | 

Overall, my experience with ALSA was fantastic. I just wished the internet connection was more stable as I couldn't connect anymore after about 30 minutes.

Your driver is so inconsiderate. We came down to go to the restroom in San Sebastián for he said only 10 mins, but after less than 5 minutes when we were out, the bus is gone. ALSA driver saw how terrified we were so he took us in the bus to Madrid and we had to chase our luggages. I called your help desk to look for our luggages and all they say file a complaint. I will never never never ride Eurolines again and I will tell friends NOT TO RIDE IN YOUR BUS AS WELL. I will put it on Social Media.

There were no toilet papers in the washroom, no soap and no running water.
