I stayed for two nights, in different rooms and I can recommend it warmly, one of the best hostels I stayed in. The beds are great, the rooms are large and very pretty, both the dorms and the private rooms. At the restaurant they serve decent Lebanese food for a very good price. The only things I didn't like very much, were the bathrooms which were generally clean but not very good, especially the quality of the showers were poor. In one of the rooms you couldn't hang up the shower head and I had to hold it while showering. Also they don't have a kitchen which the guests can use like other hostels do. And their wi-fi is very slow, but that is normal for Lebanon. Good place to stay if you're a women travelling alone, there are many internationals and female solo travellers come there a lot, you will not stand out. Also it is in a very good location.
