The hotel is in a comfortable position to reach the center or the beaches (just a few minutes walk). The staff is friendly and very nice, room was small but very clean. The wii-fi is free. The value for money is very convenient. Only drawback for us: the quality of the mattress and the presence of a single pillow "marriage."... More

Family of 4 (kids aged 8 and 11) stayed in one of their Quads for 3 nights. Very clean, quiet and family friendly. We would stay here again. Be aware that the Quads open on the street and not into the hotel like the rest of the rooms. Also, your credit card will be charged for 1 night upon booking... More

Warm, friendly, clean, hospitable, near everything, in a town that is a bit rough around the edges, which means it hasn't YET been totally spoiled by spoiled tourists (people like me.) No complaints, only praise.

We booked two rooms and stayed three nights in October. This is a family owned and family run facility, one block from the main street, a 5 minute walk from the bus depot, a 2 minute walk from a supermarket and, in the opposite direction, about a 10 minute walk to the port. We were on the second floor (no... More

We booked this small family run hotel as a jumping off point to visit Tangier, Morocco, and were pleasantly surprised with the accommodations. It is spotlessly clean and comfortable, with somewhat basic decor. The remarkably inexpensive price included a simple, though well prepared breakfast. The owners could not have been more pleasant and helpful. It is located a couple of... More

En route to Tangier, we stayed two nights in this delightful family run hostal. It is very clean, if a bit basic, well located and managed by a quite helpful family. Indeed, the morning we checked out, one of the brothers who operate the hotel drove us to the port to catch our ferry to Tangier. The breakfast is basic,... More

My mother and I stayed here for one night and we were very impressed. It was clean, comfortable and the facilities were very good. The staff were friendly and helpful; one of our lamps had a bulb not working and they came instantly to replace it. Our toilet was also not working, this was also rectified immediately. The hostel is... More

We stayed one night in Tarifa (would recommend more nights if you're going, it's a nice little surfer town!) after arriving at the lone bus stop at the north (I think?) end of town. The hotel is well-advertised for the most part (via signs from the city bus station / stop) with a good location, although the walk to the... More
