Liked: Clean and spacious.

Disliked: I stayed here 3 years ago and they blocked off the kitchen and dining area for 2 weeks for refurbishment. I return 3 years later to find it still blocked off. There are no catering facilities at this hostel. Totally overpriced for what you can get elsewhere but they get away with it because of the shortage of accommodation in Tarifa. If you can DONT STAY HERE

Liked: location

Disliked: the lady in the reception (the guys were nice), if you want to use a locker you need to have your own padlock (??!!), almost nothing included in price, but in general not bad..

Liked: Cheap no nonsense. Close to centre

Disliked: Almost impossible to get to sleep. I was in the annexe and the hostel made no effort to enforce a notice which said no noise between 12 and 5 am. Young people were noisy and drunk coming back at 5 am from the pubs.

05 April 2010 Jessica would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel isn't too far from the bus station at all. It's not super close to the port but definitely walking distance. It's located on a street with a lot of clothing/surf shops. The lady who checked us in wasn't too friendly; in fact, she was rather short with us. They kept one of our passports during our stay, which I didn't like. The size of the room is pretty standard, we didn't feel that the hostel was as clean as it could've been, and the water pressure was pretty weak. The walls were thin and one of the beds was creaky. This would be an ok place to stay for a night or 2 but not longer.

Disliked: Jessica left no negative feedback.
