We didn't make any reservations prior and thought we'd find something when we arrived. We walked through the new part of town and saw many places, but not really to our taste. Going through the gate into the old part of town it took us about two minutes to find this place. We went in and the guy at the... More

For me, it was the first time in a hostal. I have chosen double bedroom with private bathroom. The hostal is in a distinctive street of Tarifa, all white and Moroccan style. The building itself is really nice, with a patio and an amazing terrace from which you can see Africa. Really recommended!

It is almost impossible to find lodging in Tarifa in August at the last minute. We were just so lucky the day we passed by( following lonely planet recommendation). We had a spacious, extremely clean ( they changed towel every day!) double room on the first floor for a very decent price . It was a very quite place despite... More

Great central location. Helpful staff and really quiet nights for being right in central tarifa. Cleaned daily and good beds. Staff were still friendly early Sunday morning when I woke her up to check out forgetting to warn them them night before!

I chose this hostal because of the recommendation in the Lonely Planet guide and I was very happy I did. It is in an excellent location, just inside the old wall with easy access to all bars, beaches and eating places. The two staff, Edu and a young woman (sorry I didn't get your name) are extremely helpful and friendly.... More

What I love about this hostal is its’ quiet yet central location just inside the old town walls. Five minutes walk in any direction and you can be seated at a bar sipping a glass of wine or in a restaurant deciding which seafood to dine on. Rooms are reasonably priced, simply furnished in clean, fresh, striking mediterranean colours, dazzling... More

The rooftop views, the location, the rooms, the service, it was all WONDERFUL! The only downside is that there are no elevators, so be prepared to carry your luggage up a few flights of stairs. This hotel is beautiful inside and out and has a very Mediterranean feel. My friend and I shared a room with two singles in it... More

We stayed here for a week in October and the location of the hostel is really central. Our room was just perfect and spotless. There is no air conditioning but it really was not necessary. Everyone we spoke to in reception was exceptionally helpful. Edu in particular went out of his way always to answer any of our questions and... More

Friends and I stayed here for one night in three rooms. The rooms are simpe but had what we needed. They have free wifi, but no TV in the rooms. There is a balcony on the top level with good views. We got tips on where to eat. There was not much open as it is off season. We found... More

We booked two rooms @ 100€. Comfy twin beds, small clean bayhrooms with good showers. Simply decorated in North Afri an style. Helpful young man on reception able to advise on good birding sites for eagle migration and whaleing trips. Would stay again. Great location, but you will need to park (free) outside the old town walls.
