I had a great three nights stay at Hostal Africa. Loved the location, walking right into the old town of Tarifa. Eva and Miguel were super nice and helpful. I had asked for a room in the higher floor which was not available but when there was a cancellation, Eva offered to change my room to Room 10 which was... More

The place is clean, I had a couples suite and it was a large room which was hot and without a fan but staff did lend one. The roof is beautiful but gets closed off at 12. The Internet is a bit spotty however Staff are nice and warm.

Hostal Africa is in a great location, easy to get to the beach, and right in the old town just a minute away from Tapas bars. The view from the roof terrace is really nice. No breakfast included, which was OK as we went out for coffee and pastry. The room was very basic and plain. WiFi in the lobby... More

The hostal is simple, but clean with a very nice roof terrace, where you have internet access. No warm water problems like in some other reports. The building itself is a little bit in the morrocan stile with an open inner courtyard. Very clean hostel with a very nice and friendly staff. No breakfast available, but enough places around the...

Very clean and perfectly situated in the middle of the old town, this place still manages to be just far enough away from the noisier streets to let you get some decent sleep. Although furnishings are basic, it has it's charm, and the building itself is authentic and well-kept. The roof terrace is great, but be aware it closes at... More

Let me add my praise to the others who have reviewed this hostel. I loved the interiors and the sunroom on the roof was amazing. I stayed for five nights and spent many happy hours up there reading books and surfing the internet. I stayed in Room 7, which is small but has everything one needs. The staff were great... More

Brightly painted rooms offer good value, as well as the boisterous welcome from staff and easy reservation service via email. The terrace is a winner as well. If I could have a special starring system for terraces, 5 stars. "I an see Africa from here". The rooms arent huge but clean and nicely done. Easy walk from the bus station... More
