The colorful decoration and shape of the building make its charm. the location is ideal in a quiet little street. The staff is really friendly and helpful. We liked the "rules" and way of thinking of the place ! Strongly recommend it ! Unique critical point, the shower didn't have sufficient pressure ... PS : we did love the open... More

I spend a whole week in the hostel case caracol and my opinion is mixed. First, I came without an reservation and it was no big deal to find a bed for one week. An army of people is working in this hostel, not all at the same time but I remember a minimum of ten boys and girls over... More

Hola Stephane So great of you to take the time to write us a review. We are very proud of our hot pancakes for breakfast, rooftop terrace with hammocks & homemade meals every night for 5 euros. And the "best location in Cadiz", yes that is us - 5 minute walk to the beach and bus/train station. We were glad... More

This is 3rd time I come to Casa Caracol for Carnaval de Cadiz. Price, location, breakfast and atmosphere are as good as it's always been. Check-in is welcome any time, there will always be a staff welcoming newcomers, thanks guys!

Nicko is nice guy and the staff as well. Great for backpackers. Perfect location, many offers of assorted activities, social grill parties and trips. We stayed in Pirates house and was OK too. Dinners on the terrace with splendid view to the cathedral.

Beautyful created hostel in the centre of Cádiz(old town). Lots of common activities every day - like the Pizza evening yesterday! Yummy! And yoga every morning on the roof top terrace. And of course the famous pancakes for breakfast every morning! Adsolutely delicious!!!

This hostel is so well run, and has such a great vibe with people always willing to do activities and just relax with you. The free pancakes are great, and the roof terrace is perfect to chill out on. The only downside is that the rooms at the back were a little stuffy. Who cares...
