We had a lovely stay here. Staff were very helpful, and the location was great for leaving on the ferry to Algeciras the next day.

great house, great stuff, good breakfast, marvellous rooftop! Unfortunateley we had the room in the groundfloor, which was really dark, noisy (lobby directly in front of the room) and stuffy. To get to the private bathroom, you have to cross the whole lobby. The night was really bad, because there were such a heat in the room and what turned out at home: the little bugs in the bed were bedbugs :-(
Dar Jameel is a little jewel! The atmosphere is great, am evening on the separate all windows roof top "mini-tower" over the Medina's roofs is spectacular! Just be aware that the hostel is located in the old town's labyrinth, needed some advices from friendly Maroccans to find it. However this is part of the hostel's charme - you don't expect it in this surrounding. When walking from the port it is rel. easy to reach. Only bring ear plugs if you have a light sleep! Staff is super! (Family 4kids)

Dar Jameel is gorgeous; the rooftop terrace is very pleasant, breakfast is delicious, and the friendly staff greet you on arrival with mint tea and biscotti. BUT: bedbugs. I awoke in the night to dozens of them, and in the end had over 100 bites. The night clerk was very apologetic and moved us to a new clean room, but in the morning the manager said "they live in the wood, it's not a problem". And the room was already ready for the next victim. Overall: wonderful, but check for bugs.
Perfect! Everything from the fantastic warm welcome, the amazingly beautiful room, to the great City Tour on offer, making my stay in Tangier fantastic. It was such a great introduction into Moroccan hospitality. Thank you very much!
My mom and I really enjoyed our stay here! It was the best riad we have been to in Morocco! We would come back here any time for a nice relaxing weekend! I would recommend to anyone willing to spend a few extra dollars for a real Moroccan experience!
A very beautiful dar. The manager was extremely helpful. Our room was off the main foyer, which meant that we could hear any activity in the lobby and felt we had to keep our voices down as others could likely hear us. Very close to the ferry.
Very nice hotel (it is not hostel at all!), very nice stuff - friendly and helpful, great place to stay! CLEAN!!!
I cannot even begin with how amazing this hostel was. We had a private room, the entire hostel is beautifully tiled inside. Breakfast is a must, fresh fruits, bread, and made to order eggs! We were floored with the excellent English of the staff, their quiet friendliness, and the atmosphere of the hostel. Lots of spaces to relax, a beautiful view of the city and medina from the rooftop terrace. WiFi was solid, too. I highly recommend it to anyone traveling here. Loved it!
This hostel was AWESOME. It was beautiful inside, the beds were huge, the staff was so nice, and breakfast was great! Definitely worth the price.
My wife and I stayed at this riad on 20/21 June 2013. A blue taxi from the train station takes 15 mins. We were warmly received and given mint tea /pastries. Our room, on the ground floor, was clean /spacious. Breakfasts, served on the top floor, had a varied menu and were rather tasty. Staff throughout the riad were most friendly and capable to deal with queries.Town centre with shops and restaurants was an easy 10 mins walk away.The port is 15 mins walk away.Would we stay here again,certainly.
The building was beautiful! I felt like my room belonged in a museum. I also had a bathroom all to myself because no one else was staying on my floor. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. And the place couldn't have been cleaner.
The hostel wasn't very busy when we were there but that was probably just the time of year/season. We stayed in a double room with a private bathroom which was beautiful and very clean. The included breakfast was lovely every morning and the staff were very friendly and helpful.The location of the hostel was good and we felt very safe inside.
Very friendly and helpful staff who were very willing to spend time with you and explain where things in the city are. The rooms are spotless and beautifully presented. I was in Tangier working and didn't feel as though I had to worry about leaving (photography) equipment in my room and not being with it because the property itself is secure, as was the room. I would definitely recommend Dar Jameel and stay there again next time I visit Tangier.
The rooms are HUGE and so nicely decorated! I couldn't believe the value for money. There is great breakfast and a wonderful terrace. The staff were incredibly helpful, making recommendations on a map and organising taxis and tours. They even negotiate the taxi price so travellers don't get ripped off (massively helpful in Tangier). The place was very clean - will definitely stay again.
I am quite impressed with the interior of the Hostel...not only the lobby, but the rooms!!! ...to look at the Hostel from the outside you would think, what have I done? ...well, what you have done is choose a Hostel that is in a good location, with a great rooftop view, and a filling hot breakfast!! ...I definitely will visit here again especially with the informative staff. Thank You!
