I stayed here for a month and really loved the place. The staff were fantastic, helpful, friendly and warm. It was impeccably clean thanks to the wonderful and hard-working cleaning staff who are a real credit to the place. The food is some of the best I had in Beirut and I ate out a lot and had a lot...

I stayed here for a week when I arrived in Beirut and it was the perfect starting point- in a great location with lots of other travellers to meet. The rooms are large and clean, the free wifi is fast for Beirut, there are lots of common rooms and the showers are good. I found the staff in reception, cafe... More

This place has great facilities (rooftop bar is a must), and it is in a great location. However, the staff let it down dramatically. If you get anymore than a grunt you are doing well, which is a shame because the place has great potential.

There aren't many budget options in Beirut and Saifi gardens is the best option for a hostel. It's cool and very hipster, with its artsy exterior, cafe, and rooftop bar. It's a great place to go with a group of friends, as I found this to be the most common way ppl travel to Beirut. Not many solo travelers and... More

the location is very good (in the heart of cool gemmayzhe), but the room are very noisy because of the road passing a few meters (literally!) from the rooms and a bar with live music. The bar is however nice, and it serves good dishes and cocktails and it helps in giving a charming atmosphere. The rooms are no more... More

We stayed at Saifi for five nights and it was a great experience. The staff is very helpful and the vibe perfect! The rooms are clean and spacious and there are plenty of common rooms where you can hang around. There is also a very nice rooftop bar and cafe downstairs where you can eat lebanese cuisine while playing backgammon.... More

I stayed at Saifi Urban Gardens for five nights. I flew in to Beirut at 2am and arrived at the hotel in Gemmayze (very central location) at 3am. I was pleased that a very helpful member of staff was able to meet me at the hotel to check-in at such a difficult hour. On the whole I enjoyed my stay... More
