The location ist very cool and you meet lots of friendly and cool persons. Besides the cooking at 10 o'clock p.m. there are many oportunities for aktivities. In the evening it is a litte noisy but don't forget you stay in a hostel and this is buiseness as usual.

5 Euro dinners every night were very good! A local bar owner took us for a walking tour of the city with lots of knowledge of the history and fun spots about the city. At the end of the 1.5 hr tour of the old city she asked for any free will donations for the tour(seriously no pressure to pay).... More

Very good located, good service and clean. The worst thing is: they have many common areas and instead of keeping them for leisure (like the living room couchs or the terrace hammoks, for instance) they use them as extra-bedrooms. As a result, it is overcrowded; at a certain time even restrooms collapse too.

Went here 3 years ago and just knew I had to come back. Was not dissapointed when I did! The staff is extremely warm and welcoming and besides keeping the place clean and tidy also makes sure theres cheap beer in the fridge for you to buy aswell as offer a cheap but delicious home cooked meal on the roof...

Unfortunatly it was not really clean. Meaning the was a lot of dust, dead flys and the cuchions were really old. and it was hot ;)... More

Arrived. Greeted with bizarre rule book which went into ridiculous details (don't put ash in the flower pots) and had a kind of joking theme that didn't really work. The place did not feel that welcoming generally, or as another traveler put it, it felt "tense". After coming back from an evening meal I was saying good night to a... More

Hostel looks really nice, cosy and relaxed. Fine breakfast, rooms and bathrooms. The best about this hostel is how it looks, the people, the location and all the activities they organize. Sleeping is only not very good: the whole hostel is open, so you can hear everything and everyone... If they do something about that, it would be the best... More

Casa Caracol is one of those hostels you find once in a blue moon and never want to leave - many don't! Colourful small rooms, an amazing rooftop terrace with hammocks if your budget's tight, a starlit open air shower on the roof, pancakes for breakfast and always something delicious for the evening meal - all cooked by the staff...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa CaracolMuch more than just a place to sleepCelebrating our tenth year of looking after travellers, backpackers and students in CadizCasa Caracol is about slowing down, unwinding, having fun and meeting people from all over the world in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We've hand built this hostel from the ground up over the last 10 years which gives it a unique character that the corporate chains can never match.Over the winter we've renovated the hostel, built custom-made wooden furniture and added even more common space - we now have more than twice the amount of common area to sleeping space. caracol's tail - extension on ground floor with hand made furnitureextra public computersnew hand-made wooden bedsbeach cruiser bikes for renthome cinema screen for movie nights2 new bathrooms - 6 in total nownew breakfast menu - hot breakfasts - pancakes daily evening meals available at backpacker prices cooked by our resident cheflog burning stove for warm winter nightsnew wi-fi repeater for internet access all over the hostelMore than just a bed for the night, the Caracol has evolved over the years since 2003 into a social hub. Now we can offer even more events and activites using our new extension, the Caracol's Tail. Have a look at our facebook page to see what others are saying about staying here.On the environmental side we promote recycling, energy efficiency and water saving in this dry region. ... more   less
