We came into Tarifa by bus; right there at the bus station there's a sign pointing towards the Alborada. It was an easy 10-minute walk (with our luggage). From the hostal going the other way it's another 10 minutes to the old town with the ferry dock five minutes beyond. The people at La Alborada booked our daytrip to Tangier,...

We stayed here 1 night whilst en route to Morocco. Very nice stay, comfortable room, good value. It's worth mentioning that we arrived very late at night (1:30am actually) and there was no trouble getting checked in. Just send an email in advance.

Located in the center, few meters away from the shopping district and the old town. Also few minutes away from the beach. However what makes this place unique is the staff. From cleaners to receptionists they are all great and seem to be a big family. Rooms are very clean and the staff was amazing. You can see the amount...

Great hostal. Comfortable and clean with a great shower. I didn't have the breakfast as there is a large supermarket opposite. The only reason I haven't given five stars is because I felt it was slightly overpriced. Nevertheless it wouldn't stop me from returning.

The location is just 10 minutes walk from the old city. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was clean. The hotel interior is also beautifully ornate and there are some nice spaces to lounge in. Just a few problems with the amenities in my particular room. Firstly the hot water never lasted more than 5 minutes,...

A few hundred meters from the old town of Tarifa in rather uninviting surroundings this hostal offers clean and nice rooms with good free wifi and air condition. Very friendly and helpful staff. You can have your breakfast here, but it is not included in the room price. Good value for the money.

Stayed one night with a group cycling in this attractive 2 star hostel. Staff member was very friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and reasonably sized. The breakfast was good though there was no choice offered. The reception area was attractive and the old town only a short walk away. Good choice on a budget.

Free street parking. Small modern rooms with bath. Large lounge area. Host arranged trip to Tangier, Morocco and gave us a ride to the ferry. Walking distance to restaurants and old town. Breakfast was available at extra cost.

The hotel is clean and simple, the staff is friendly. This is a good launching point in Tarifa for beach excursions, trips to Tangier, and road trips to the Roman ruins located at Balonia beach about 14 km to the northwest. There is laundry service for €14, although like most of Europe, they air dry the clothes and will take...

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. It has a lot of good points, and the proprietors were super friendly and eager to please. However, it also had a fair number of annoyances. Overall I'd say it's a good budget choice. We were a little nervous approaching the hotel-- the surrounding neighborhood is rather run-down and dirty. The loading/unloading zone...

“Be aware that the Quads open on the street and not into the hotel like the rest of the rooms. Also, your credit card will be charged for 1 night upon booking (their booking engine does not tell you this).”
