The rooms were clean, smaller than the one I chose but no complaints. Plenty of bathrooms and the terrace area was really nice with hammocks! Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast wasn't great but it was free, not a lot of options. Worth the price.

We had a private double room with shared bathroom. Everything was clean and nice, the location is perfect both for the beach and for the old town. Lovely atmosphere and great breakfast included! Definitely recommended

Rude staff, terrible rooms.. Do not stay here! Very unhelpful staff over email meant i had trouble finding the place and they weren't clear about rooms. No atmosphere either... There's much cheaper and better value hostels nearby, just book one of those on the night

This hostel is really nice. The staff are so friendly and nice and always ready to help. They even invited me to go partying with them after their shift. I stayed in a double bedroom, it was just perfect and I had my privacy. If anything the breakfast that was included was really bad. Only bread, butter and two types...

The hostel was nice, with a very helpful staff and a good location: not far from the city center or from the beach. Regarding the equipment and the staff it would deserve a five star, but we were a bit disappointed with the breakfast and the condition of the bathroom of our room. If you are looking for a cosy...

Had a good experience at this hostel mostly because the staff were incredibly helpful! Staff gets 5 star though the hostel itself is average. Pros: - Staff as mentioned - location is close to the beach, centre town and ferry (small town so not difficult). - Nice kitchen - Rooftop terrace - Clean - Extra blankets on the bed Cons:...

Clean, friendly, and cool house-like environment. The kitchen was very well stocked and the location was great, both near the beach and the center of Tarifa, where there are plenty of restaurants. A couple small things to note: The wifi did not work very well. Also, there are only a couple bathrooms for the whole hostel, so at times (like...

Oh my goodness, I'm such a fan of this restaurant! I have been wanting to try Melting Pot for a couple of years but it hasn't worked out until our girls trip over Spring Break. I so wish there were more of these restaurants! It will now be a "must" when visiting Birmingham. It's a little pricey, but if you...
