We booked two rooms @ 100€. Comfy twin beds, small clean bayhrooms with good showers. Simply decorated in North Afri an style. Helpful young man on reception able to advise on good birding sites for eagle migration and whaleing trips. Would stay again. Great location, but you will need to park (free) outside the old town walls.

Clean tidy, just far enough away from the bars (5min walk!!!!!), and quiet due to it being slightly up a hill in the old town of tarifa. I've stayed here for years... Not literally, but each time I visit I always stay here.... It's clean and tidy... The staff are friendly and helpful. Shower pressure in room 10 can be...

Hostal Africa is a wonderful little hotel inside the walls of old town Tarifa Spain. I was expecting average but was pleasantly surprised by what we found. The place was wonderful. It was also as clean as a whistle. Our room (third floor walk up) was bright and airy and just outside the rooftop deck. The staff (only a couple...

I arrived jet lagged having pre booked a budget room for 28 euro for a couple nights. Upon departure I was told I had stayed in a premium room and therefore had to pay double. The first staff member I spoke to understood the error was on their side. He claimed that they had no rooms for $32. That it...

Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was large, very clean and the bed was comfortable. Wifi is fast. Best of all is the location: in the old city, close to great cafés and not far to the ferries. We wish we had booked for longer.

Very clean, private, reasonably priced rooms. Some with shared baths which isn't a problem for us. Beautiful views from the large rooftop patio which has a bungalow to escape from the sun. All the employees are nice and speak pretty good English. Try it.

Hostal Africa, a small hotel ("hostal" means small hotel) in the Old Town part of Tarifa, Spain, is well worth the price. We had a very simple room, up many stairs, with a great breeze. Customers have access to a nice rooftop area, with a cabana, that was very nice also. It is a simple place with no extras at...

We were surprised that for a hostel, it was wonderfully quiet. It could be because everyone was out partying much later than us though! The shared facilities including the bathroom were kept spotlessly clean, and the double room was very simply furnished but functional and clean. A great cheap place to stay!

Very clean, excellent location (old town), comfortable accomodation. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The best feature is the roof top terrace: big, amazing view, wifi, open air and sheltered relax area on it. The hostal has free wifi throughout the establishment, even though the connection isn't always that great.

I had a great three nights stay at Hostal Africa. Loved the location, walking right into the old town of Tarifa. Eva and Miguel were super nice and helpful. I had asked for a room in the higher floor which was not available but when there was a cancellation, Eva offered to change my room to Room 10 which was...

“Can't say anything about the other rooms but our room was top floor right outside the rooftop deck. We loved it. The bathroom was small but many European bathrooms are. It was not as small as some we had on this trip. I wish I could share photos with you but I forgot to take any of the hostal.”
