The location is very convenient, close to the port - just cross the street and you are in the port area and the center. Even close to the port it is a quiet area (the port is behind the fortified castle that is one of the main attraction of the city). Our room had a balcony and was very clean,... More

Easy to find location very close to the port but not noisy. Basic but clean rooms. Our bathroom smelt very bad I think a mouldy shower curtain and the grout on the tiles was bad too. The room was clean and tidy and the aircon great. We had a balcony with a view. The price was a little expensive in... More

This ended up being a surprise. We didn't expect to like Tarifa at all. It was just a stop before taking the Ferry to Morocco. This hotel was cute and located perfectly by the beach, the ferry and old town. The staff were very accommodating and even did our laundry for us. The room was comfortable and clean. Around the...

Me and my mate spent one night at this place on our way to marocco. 18th place on tripadvisior and "hostel" made me sceptical. But I was wrong! Great location, clean and nice rooms. Little small rooms though but we didnt mind. Price was friendly aswell. Next time i will stay in tarifa im going to stay here for sure.

We have stayed here for 3 nights. Location is great, very central and with a great atmosphere. Rooms were a lovely size and very clean. Basic but great value for money. Don't be fooled by the word "HOSTAL" in the name as this has all the commodities of a 3 star hotel. Nice clean and does the job as i... More

We stayed in this hotel mainly b/c we were planning a day trip to Tangier, Morocco, and wanted to stay in Spain both the night before and after. For the most part, we were happy with our stay. The hotel was literally right across the street from the ferry terminal, and there was a restaurant downstairs with decently-priced food. The... More

Each guest may have only one tiny cup of coffee from the machine in reception. I was told that is the rule. The coffee sachets are kept locked away and when I was refused a refill I felt like Oliver Twist. And bring a bottle of drinking water because that won't be replenished in the room. Anyway, for €35 my... More

I stayed here several years ago, but I think that time I was in a more modern part of the hotel, the rooms were much nicer, that said this time the room was warm, comfortable and very clean, the only issue was the lack of a lift. the Guy on Reception was attentive and very helpful

We stayed here the night before catching the Tangier ferry. We were on the first floor of the annexe and there was a lift, unlike in the main building. The room was comfortable and quiet, but unfortunately it failed the "hairs in the shower" test. Apart from its location, right next to the port and the old town, I'm not... More
