    This place is lush and down to earth. Staff / volunteers are all lovely, a mixed bunch and full of heart. Other guests were varied but invariably sound as 2 pounds. It's very calm and DIY re the personal experience, which I like - but also their plans for the place are great and something to look forward to. Sweet!

    I had a great time at the Colony. The people were so chilled they may have been frozen. A definite highlight was the group dinner on Sunday where you could experience and enjoy traditional Lebanese food with staff and new found friends. The staff were incredibly helpful arranging for a car to pick me up from the airport, chaperoning me to the hospital and translating when I needed treatment for an injury and providing general information about things to see and do in Lebanon.

Sleeps where so so good (∪。∪)。。。zzZ Staff are on another level of soundness and kindness. All ways there to chat and be helpful. Location is perfect to get about, nice lil shop around the corner Its rare when I travel that I miss the hostel I stayed in. The Colony Beirut reminds me what hostels are all about Brought a warmth to me heart. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

    The staff are super awesome, the feeling there is like a big family. The beds are comfy and the position in close to the highway so it's easy to get around by bus. They have begun to put on events such as movie nights and other social activities. Say hello to the cats for me if you go!

    First and foremost, the people working here were friendly and helpful. The location is a 10 minute walk to a very interesting neighborhood There were a number of cats in common areas and quite a large number of kittens running about. Beirut is great, but I would not stay at this hostel again....but the staff were nice
