Looks like it used to be an ok hostel, but it's extremely rundown now. Only one member of staff for the entire place (he's really nice), but often he is difficult to locate since he's running around dealing with everything. Washing machine is terrible, don't do laundry here. Location is right next to the dunes entrance... But you have to pay to climb anywhere on the dunes. Video cameras, alarms, barbed wire fences everywhere.


I really enjoyed my stay at Charley's! He's always willing to help. The location is also great...right next to the dunes. Very quiet and peaceful with trees and fresh air. You'll see a lot of camels on the road, which is fun. Other facilities are fine. Nothing fancy, just what you need to get a good night's sleep, shower, do laundry. The food is good as well. The bar didn't seem to be open but it was a slow time without many guests.
