I was probably there at a strange time as there were really strong winds, so there was no surfing/kitesurfing and no ferries to Morocco. Most people were stopping in Tarifa to go to Morocco, so the vibe was a bit dull as everyone was disappointed. However the hostel is fine, nothing special to be honest, but OK. Annoyingly though I didn't have a shower for two days as there was no hot water. And hand held showers? Really? The beds were fine, particularly if you're a fan of your Gran's bedspreads and blankets. The communal area and bar is actually really nice and a good place to hang with the hippies, I mean fellow travellers. Staff were very helpful too, though failed to tell me the ferries to Morocco were cancelled when I checked in and booked two nights specifically to go there for the day. All in all, average my friends.
