Unbelievable that such a hostel could go on existing, especially given the availability of only ONE toilet on the first and main floor...beyond imagination.

The staff ran around because they were busy and wanted above all have fun themselves. The bed was not really super and the breakfast was not much. It's quite a nice place but everything is very outdated. The beach is close.

The rooms were sparse, but adequate. Lockers in the room were a great idea. I didn't realize I signed up for a mixed dorm and a man joined our group of women around bedtime, but he was nice and left early so it all worked out.

We've been very happy with our stay in this hostel. The breakfast is included in the price and they even provide eggs. The employees were very nice and all speak at least four languages. The bathroom situation would be the point that has to be worked on: there are only two bathrooms for the whole floor (including many bedrooms) and only one of them has a toilet in it (the other one contains only a sink and a shower). The water in the shower is also cold half of the time.

Nice backpackers hostal, very nice staff who wanted to explain a lot! They even recommended us a very good hostal in the centre because they were full the next night. Breakfast was very nice with eggs and bread and marmelade. The atmosphere was nice and great to meet people. Good dorm with nice bathroom ensuite. It was not in the centre but still very close by!

Bed in double room very uncomfortable. Showers are rubbish. Not worth the money but you might struggle to find a cheaper alternative so central.

There was something off about the atmosphere in this place. The staff was a bit closed off to the clients. Cool kitchen with free coffee!

This hostel was great and exactly what we needed after a hectic week in Morocco, the guy working there was real friendly and the place was right near the beach and old town, Unfortunatly we only had 1 night here, but Tarifa is definitely somewhere to go back to and We would definitely stay here again.

Great value for the money spent. Our group of 8 reserved a whole room (8 beds) for 4 nights and didn't have any problems. The staff at the front desk were very helpful, and gave us a map marked with recommended restaurants, bars, and beaches. Our room was cleaned daily, and any valuables we had were locked in lockers in our room. The hostel is in a great location, within a five minute walk of the beach, stores, or the old city. Would definitely stay there again.

Great place. Would be nice to have somewhere to hang out after midnight instead of being forced to bed like summer camp.

The dorms are very small and the beds are very uncomfortable. The toilets and showers dont actually give you the privacy you would expect, big hole in the wall going to the other toilet and no real doors, just slidedoors without a lock. The overall atmosphere in the hostel was also poor, not a nice place to hang out at.

The location is quite good indeed. The things that bothered were the arrogant bloke at the reception (some italian guy) and part of the faclity. In the bathroom you can barely lock the door. At that particular moment, there was a single available toilet in the whole hostel. The guy itself, would not comment at all.
