The rooms bathroom were clean, the beds were fine, tv, had an AC, definitely need a bigger water heater, so if you tired to take a shower in the am, you would not get hot water. It is right downtown Tarifa, and within walking distance of the beach and a store, the ferries to Tangiers, etc. The downside, the noisy... More

We had a room on the upper floor with a balcony and a sea view. Lovely. the room was nice and quiet for sleeping. The balcony doors were... More

In the unattractive part of Tarife Spain this seems a popular spot near the beach till u try to sleep. A main road with a building site opposite.Constant traffic garbage trucks and deliveries. No reception at all at night till 9 am. Clean but air con not working in 30 degrees plus.

Workmen started renovations early in morning as installing a lift. Room was 2 flights of stairs up and very steep stairs. Owner upset and rude that we didn't book our day trip to morocco... More

Went to this hostal after asking some other travellers at the bus station about a place to stay, they were staying there too. We walked in about 6.30pm and luckily they had a room, the guy was helpful and welcoming enough. The rate... More

Just to start - I did not stay here in 2010; I stayed in Nov 2007 but tripadvisor won't let me select a date prior to January 2010. We stayed 2 nights, and the photos online show a renovated hotel from the one where we stayed. As I recall they were doing their renovations while we were there. The room... More
