Great stay for the one night transfer to Tarifa. Perfectly situated right next the bus station and very helpful staff. Thank you
The staff at the reception was very weird (it's the only word I can use to describe him), he did not speak English and seemed very irritated when I did not understand what he was telling me in Spanish.
24h reception, pretty close to the harbor. No AC but a ceiling fan, wifi available. I planned to stay one night but became sick and had to stay another night. Staff was super friendly and helpful, called me a taxi to the hospital and tried to help me where they could. They didn't speak english at all though.
Extremely basic, not very clean, in a very dingy area of town. It served us well for our purposes—a 1-night stopover between the train and ferry. The staff was very friendly. Beyond the kind staff and practical location, Hostal Versalles is not desirable. Room was grimy, bathroom was extremely small, shower drained slowly, almost no common space, and street noise flooded the room. Overall, it served our purposes but I would not return nor recommend it, even for the practicality of location.

This is a no frills hostel that is a perfect location for anyone making the trip to Tangier needing an overnight stay. Algeciras itself is a hole of a city, not much going in but the hostel is 4 minute walk to bus stop and about 10-15 walk to ferry terminal. Did feel very safe at night so we just stayed in. Wifi works well and owners were friendly, if you need a place to eat cafeteria Goya on the front stretch near road to ferry terminal was great and really popular
The hostel is located in the harbour quarter, which seems to be one of the poorer areas in town. Otherwise everything was fine, except that the bathroom had an odd smell.
