The only good thing about this hostel is the owners. I had a chat with them, and they were fabulous. Everything else about this hostel is a 2. My sheets weren't clean, the staff was lazy even though there were many of them about. The price was definitely not worth the service. The wifi didn't even reach the rooms. The... More

I could not believe the reviews that have been made on here once I had visited Emile Hostel! This place is a well run family hostel which is clean, has comfortable beds and good showers. The staff here could not have been more helpful and friendly. I would recommend this place to anyone.

No staff, no reception, no room keys, no lockers or luggage storage, no kitchen, no activities, no breakfast. The owner is rude and more interested in chatting with his taxi driver mates. If he is there at all, that is he wanders off at random times, only to return hours later. The beds are old, creaky, sagging and terrible, it's... More

We chose to book here because it is the only hostel in Gib and we wanted the multicultural, embracing, fun atmosphere of a hostel except that this place DOES NOT HAVE ANY OF THAT. When we showed up, it was closed and we had to wait forever for them to open up. Once we got to check in, I ended... More

This place is to be avoided!! I have stayed in a lot of hostels but this place is terrible and its mainly down to the staff! On arrival the guy who pretended to work there was annoyed that he had to stop chatting to his friends and attend to us. The only possible good thing was it seemed to be... More

Avoid this unpleasant hostel. The below average facilities would be forgivable if the staff were any bit welcoming. If I could rate the service worse than terrible I would. Upon arrival were first treated like intruders and subsequently as an annoyance. There was no facilities to pay by card so the loutish receptionist demanded that he keep one of our... More

Cheap for Gibraltar standards (30-40 pounds for a double room). Rooms are simple an clean. Very friendly and informal staff and good breakfast are served. One criticism was state of shared toilets. Smell was terrible but stopped at our door thankfully and toilets were not very clean and totally flooded. Didnt dare look at the showers, good for short cheap... More

For a single traveller this is the cheapest place to stay in Gib. Price doesn't include breakfast but you can buy it and its decent value for this rather expensive city. The dorm I stayed in had 6 bunks with pillows of variable quality and nice warm blanket. There was a radiator to plug in if the evening was cool.... More
