Really disappointing place to stay, the location by the dunes is nice but the hostel looked mostly abandoned with no one around, a thick layout of dust over everything and one women caretaker who spoke next to no English. We had read reviews and expected a lively place with good facilities and info re tours, sightseeing etc. However, the room and premises were very dirty, facilities extremely basic and the only info on offer - written on the walls - turned out to be completely out of date.

Pretty much 'Meh: The Hostel'. Place isn't bad, but it is far from town. On the one hand, this is nice because you're near the sand dunes, which are very pretty. However buses stop running in between 7 and 9, so if you're like me and have dinner at 9, then second dinner at 11...you might run into some logistical issues. Courtyard setting was cool, however it was also home to a large family of Swallows. Good for the 'ambience'. Not so good for the 'perpetual fear of being shat

Charley's had everything you need in a guest house, including a great location! My friends and I are particularly grateful for the help the staff gave us, after they helped a girl in our group recover her lost phone. Thank you for everything!

Great location next to the dunes. The biggest downside is that the bathrooms aren't overly clean, but I honestly didn't think they were terrible. Do the camel camping trip organized by the hostel. Very neat experience.

It's far out, which makes you think you can go to the dunes but there's a giant fence. Though taking the bus is easy. Charley has great camel ride hookups. I did an overnight one camping in the desert and watching the sunset/rise for 400yn. I thought it was a great deal and really enjoyed it.

The proximity to the dunes is not really beneficial, because you have to pay entrance anyway. Otherwise good value stay, probably even more so when there are more people staying over. I recommend staying downtown though to enjoy the night market and better access to transportation etc.
