The staff was great, very friendly and helpful. Location was great as well, right on the inside of the old Portuguese wall. It's a lovely little hostel, with a great breakfast, beautiful decorations and nice rooms and bathrooms.
Clean twin room with shared bathroom. Well located inside the small walled part of the city. Nice roof terrace. Friendly staff.

This hostel was OK - our room was quite damp and mouldy, pretty old and in need of some paint etc. the riiad had a roof top which was quite nice and a good place to sit. One of the staff members Hassan was great, very friendly and incredibly helpful. The town itself is not worth visiting, it is promoted as a beach town however the beach is actually used as a garbage dump! So I wouldn't waste my time in visiting,
Despite the reservation, at our arrival they were overbooked and forced us to spend the first night in a room which was not finished yet and very very wet. Cleanliness of the rooms is very poor as well as of the glasses, plates they give you for breakfast. Prize for breakfast is too high compared to what they serve, we had to pay 2 additional euro each for mint tea (awful). Wifi did not work in rooms but only close to the desk. Very poor english speakers (only french).
This place was fantastic- perfect location, exceptionally clean and great bathroom. However, it was the friendly staff who really made this place stand out from others that we have stayed. There was a very welcoming atmosphere and the terrace was the perfect place to spend a relaxed evening. Thanks.
