Very nice place, pretty well located, with great staff, always friendly and ready to help out. You also have breakfast and towels included in the price. Only negative thing might be the closeness of the common room to dorms which can be problematic for some people, especially if you want to rest and there are people talking, drinking in the other room. But this is just a small inconvenience, there wasn't actual shouting or noise while i was there. it's a great place to spend a few days

Great hostel, location good, close to Ka;vin ter metro station,Vaci street pubs and souvenirs.On the street itself there are restaurants and fast foods, pubs and non stop stores. Very cheap, Perry, the guy working there is friendly and helpful.Only downside and complaint is that two of the private rooms (don't remember the numbers exactly) used to be one rooms which was then split by the owner in two.Problem is that the new wall is very thin, you hear everything next door.

location good,5 mins from jemma,but hidden in alley,might have to pay a guide to take help you.staff speak ok english but might move you from one room to other during stay.only one toilet for dorm guests,one shower,which are not clean and function poorly.some beds make annoying squeeky noise as you make slightest move and wifi often doesnt work. kitchen in very poor state,has stove and micro and fridge.only 5 euros for dorms but is too sketchy even for that price

as you exit the train station walk straight and after the roundabout at the corner on your left there's the bus station with a small blue sign.take bus 19 for 3.5 dirhams to last stop,place rcif staff really great,very good english speakers and helpful.medina very close.didn't like toilet inside dorm,you can hear everything and it can be annoying,especially at night.

Thank you for your comment and directions,Darida. Sorry for the toilet, but in general, guets prefer to have toilet inside room. The staff thank you for your mention about them.

because of construction going on as of jan '15 as you exit the port you go left on mohammed IV and turn right after the construction fence ends and enter the first city gate and then right again.after you should ask for directions or find the hotel continental which is on route.there are people wanting to take you to the hostel for a tip,3-5 euros,which is ok if you're tired or lost.hostel is cold and internet runs slowly on pcs but there's wifi.staff speak good english and breakfast is good.

it`s not a hostel,its a pension.we've booked double bed room and it was ok.positive thing is the location,in a bice winding alley close to the sights.negative is that staff generaly doesn't speak english,it really cold and the heating costs extra 3 euros daily.no kitchen or common room and wifi is really weak in rooms.overall it's ok,its the cheapest in the city i think.staff lets u use their fridge or microwave if u ask.

I stayed there twice and was satisfied. It's a family-run hostel, very cheap,good location, close to main square,old town,metro station.The owners are very nice.The shower is a bit small, so is the kitchen, but the dorm is nice and overall i recommend it. When you get to Dadiani street 30 there are 2 white doors.Facing the doors open the right one,it's never locked,go up the stairs and then and the end of the hall you'll see the hostel.”

1st Sep 2012

well, the only positive thing about this hotel is it's location and that you can get a single room pretty cheap.the metro station is one street away, about 5 mins and the citadel is about 10 mins away. but the staff don't speak a word of english, the rooms are very small, the shower didn't work, it squirted water everywhere from the wall, i couldn't lock my room when i went out. so just be prepared, but if you just want to sleep it's ok i guess.

good hostel, recommend it.. the proximity of the hostel to taksim square makes it reachable from the bus station or virtually anywhere in the city by tram,metro,furnicular. as you follow the directions noted on the site, when you do find domino's pizza, just go up to it's entrance and right next to it there's a door with Route 39 written on it. if you're not paying attention you could miss it. Loved the cats,they should have more!!

It's a good place, close to the metro,tram, to the the city centre, the staff is helpful. you can ask for breakfast, very cheap, they make something specific and interesting. the problem is finding it, cause it's located on the little square in an inner courtyard without any signs or directions on the street, so you'll have to ask around or as you stand facing the square with the tram lines behind you, it's a courtyard on the right hand side at the beginning of the square.

it's a good place, the staff speaks very good english, are helpful, it has a great atmosphere.the location is a bit tricky, but it resembles a nice little shanty town, i loved it. as you exit the bus,train station at the main entrance facing the boulevard,go right until the crossroads and then left.but there's the main road, and also another parallel small road between small shanty houses,that's the easiest way.then just check the street names and you'll find it easily.center is also 10 mins

loved it, not overcrowded, peaceful, the guy who was there was very helpful,the shower is big, clean, so is the hostel itself, great big kitchen.the only negative thing is the small room in which 4 people have to sleep. the location is not very well explained.from the clock tower,not facing the angel statue,the other side, go on the street which has the tourist info and then the first left,a curvy corner and the hostel will be on the right hand side, a new building, can't m miss it.enjoy

This is a cool hostel, located in an interesting little area.It's close to the centre, to the Mall, the staff is friendly, there's a nice common room, little yard, good atmosphere, the rooms are good, so I really recommend this hostel. Stayed there 2 nights and enjoyed it.I really loved the shanty little streets that surround the hostel.

The location is great,being right across the train and bus stations and also just a short walk from the city core.The staff is also very friendly,speak good english and they will help you if you're looking for something in the city or timetables etc. Other than these things, I can't really say much positive about the place. It's an apartment, so the place is small and feels very overcrowded even when it's not full.

It's actually hard to find, it's in a inner courtyard, overlooking a restaurant, but there's no sign on the street, I actually had to phone them to ask for directions, as I was standing right outside of the hostel.Other than that it;s a typical hostel, cheap. lying right next to the main square.

The location is really good, close to the roman theatre and the citadel,hussein and abdullah mosques, but serously lacks security and most of all cleanliness. But honestly, for these cheap prices you can't expect more. One bathroom didn't have lights, the other toilet couldn't be flushed, the noise can be heard in the rooms, so you can't sleep after 8 AM. but it's not disaster, it's ok if your a budget traveller,looking for a bed and a welcoming staff.

Really nice guesthouse, would reccomend it to anyone. The staff speaks very good english, the location is really good,a 5 minute walk from the church through the market. Great atmosphere with great music,beer, food, whatever. The only problem could be that the music is quite loud at night and some of the doors can't be closed properly.

It's an interresting hostel, being a church. it's quite easy to find, good location. you have very little space in the rooms, and it feels like an office space and it can get quite cold because of the stone walls of the church and the fact that the rooms are only separate by thin walls without a ceiling so you can practically hear what everybody else is talkin' or doin' in the hostel. Oh and you have to pay for the internet and if you want to leave your bags after you checked out
