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

Rooms are clean, water nice and hot, showers the best we've ever had in any hotel anywhere!! Nice breakfast of toast olive-oil and tomato, as well as lovely orangejuice. Neighboorhood looked iffy at first but absolutely no problem.... More

Not a hostel. This is a quality hotel at a great price 45 euros/night mid-November. Comfortable, clean and quiet. Quiet street about 4 blocks from the port. Very hospitable and helpful owner. Too elegant to be called a hostel. No guest kitchen or cooking facilities. Free luggage storage for our two day trip into Morocco.

We spend 3 nights here while visiting Morocco and Gibraltar, this past September. We were a bit suspect of the area when arriving, but absolutedly no problem, main street just around the corner and a great pleasant walk to the harbour. The place is immaculate including the rooms and common areas. Owners very helpful and even drove us to the... More

This hostel is located outside of the walls of Tarifa. But only about 7 min walk. We have never stayed in a hostel before but if this is what hostels look like then we will stay again (I do think this is the exception) We arrived here early so the town was very quiet and the area seemed sketchy. But... More
