Be aware there is now 2 « Home Stay Valery»
Valery 1, at the second level, slighly higer prices with less comfortable rooms.
And there is «Home Valery 3» at the third level. The best there is the helpfull staff, you can ask for almost anything. We stayed in Beirut using it as a base and use the public transport to go all around the Lebanon and coming back at night. We walk easily to city center, University area, sea walking side, restaurant and transport out. The room was average hostel with cable TV. The bathroom with hot shower all the time, have been rebuild but need most of the time some cleaning. You may want to consider that almost everyone smoke in Lebanon including the hostel.
