“Very friendly stuff! Very helpful. A pleasant stay”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

We have rarely seen such a cute and nice hostel. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous. If one turns with a request or question to the staff, they always try to make everything possible. We have witnessed something so rare in this form worldwide. The standard of the rooms is the price reasonable. The location between the port, the shopping area and bus station is perfect. Special Tip: the double room with twin beds has a huge rooftop balcony with a wonderful sea view.

Kind regards from germany: Stefan and Martin

This is a no-frills basic hostel. We were in a private double which had a little ensuite. The shower was good and the quality of the towels was excellent. The beds are extremely firm and our room was really noisy - but Beirut is noisy! However, if you are on a tight budget this would be perfect - the staff were very polite and friendly and the location is excellent. It is almost a shame that they don't do up a couple of the rooms and charge more!

I came to Beirut in August 2012 to study. My plan was to spend a few days at Talal and then rent a flat. But now it is March 2013 and since then I'm at Talal; live here.
There's nothing more to say...
Just 5 minutes to Gemmayzeh, 5 minutes to Downtown, 3 minutes to Charles Helou bus station (where you can take buses to Byblos, Jounieh, Tripoli and Syria)...
You can use the kitchen... (well, if you're in Lebanon go and taste the traditional food, don't spend time on cooking)
The owners are so friendly and helpful. You can get all tips about Lebanon; where to go, how to go *in the cheapest and easiest way*
It feels like home.

We are 3 friends just arrived after 4 nights in Talal Hotel in Beyrouth. The manager and the team are VERY nice, professional, and welcoming.
The price is very good and the location too.
THANKS to the manager and the people working there.

Room Tip: if possible on the 3rd floor

The place is pretty nice. The stuff are funny and with good sense of humor. Rooms are clean, not a lux. Good location. The kitchen is free to use like in a hostel. There is a free coffee and tea all the time.
