The location is great! just walking distance from all major attractions in the downtown area. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and the facilities were clean. A great experience overall! I will definitely be returning there the next time I visit Beirut.

The pick-up at the airport was perfect, the location in Beirut's district Gemmayzé is ideal to explore downton, the surroundings are interesting to discover and feel the spirit of ancient Beirut (before the civil war). A place which I can really recommend for a stay in Lebanon's capital.


a superb place to stay . owners are so helpful and the best that you could want to have. the best place to be in Beirut for sure with the most helpful owners of friendship and kindness !!!!!!!


While you couldn't dream of a better host than Mady there are however a few drawbacks to staying at this location. On the plus side: unbelievably friendly and cordial host who will always help you. Lots of privacy. Security: excellent. Spacious rooms that are very clean... However, the building doesn't have a generator which means in a country with daily power cuts that there is no electricity for 3 hours (no lights, elevator, internet,...) each day at a different time: very inconvenient!


The best thing about this hostel is its location, near to the bars on Gemmayzeh but not too close to be disturbed, near and within walking distance to the downtown, very easy access on the other road where taxis/ service can be stopped at, its high location gives very nice wind and the cleanliness of the whole house. Mady is also the best hostel owner I have met. I really felt at home during my stay and like what she told me, I have found my second home in Beirut.
