Dark dreary room with horrid filthy wire mesh over the window. Saggy bedsprings making for an uncomfortable night's sleep. Bed linen smelled musty. Hot water ran out before I'd finished showering. No self catering facilities. Not even a kettle to make a cup of coffee. Nightmare security, only locking the front door at night, rest of the time everything open...

I stayed in a 6 bed dorm witch was very clean. For £21 the location is outstanding, right in the center. The staff on my arrival were very friendly and chatty. The owner took the time to tell me a bit about Gibraltar, places to go ext. This hostel has a good vibe with the potential to make some buddy's...

The only good thing about this hostel is the owners. I had a chat with them, and they were fabulous. Everything else about this hostel is a 2. My sheets weren't clean, the staff was lazy even though there were many of them about. The price was definitely not worth the service. The wifi didn't even reach the rooms. The...

I could not believe the reviews that have been made on here once I had visited Emile Hostel! This place is a well run family hostel which is clean, has comfortable beds and good showers. The staff here could not have been more helpful and friendly. I would recommend this place to anyone.

No staff, no reception, no room keys, no lockers or luggage storage, no kitchen, no activities, no breakfast. The owner is rude and more interested in chatting with his taxi driver mates. If he is there at all, that is he wanders off at random times, only to return hours later. The beds are old, creaky, sagging and terrible, it's...
