We booked for 2 nights in a private room in Casa Caracol because of excellent reviews on internet and the hostel was also highly recommended by Lonely Planet.

It wasn't a good feeling upon arrival to be told that the room you booked was in a different location. We were told the main building was fully booked. While talking to the receptionist, we saw loads of people walking in & out from all doorways, also, people coming in & out the very small kitchen right next to the reception. Many staff and guests, all looked very busy. The receptionist told us: our "nicer place" was just 400 metre away. It turn out; the room was about 10 minutes walk to a rundown building at a corner of a very quiet back street; the stairs was dimly lit so were the rooms; with most room's windows obstructed by some kind of building materials, none of the windows can see out. The place feels dead and unsafe. A notice of warning: to lock up your windows and doors as there were thieves around.
It was definitely not a place we wanted to stay. But after lugging our baggage around, we were just too tired.

We were later told that the hostel has only few staff. Most of the volunteer-staff were backpackers. They were untrained; they weren't there to give informations as they have no local knowledge and have not been anywhere yet. It was a joke.

Room Tip: I would be careful with the booking. Try one night first.

We got the private loft room which was located right in front of the reception. Cozy and cool room but does not have a en suite bathroom. Fresh pancakes were made for breakfast which was nice. Thanks to Danny from the reception for amazing recommendations for dinner and bars. His energy is infectious!

Casa Caracol is a friendly hostel located close to all the desirable places to visit in old town Cádiz. Close enough to walk to everything. The place has a very fun environment from decor and plenty of areas to socialize. Large game/movie room. The roof top has comfortable hammocks to relax on during the day. They actually rent those out during the night for travelers just looking for a place to sleep on the cheap. Bathrooms are of course shared. There’s a rooftop bathroom/shower that is roofless providing for a unique showering experience without missing any of the wonderful Spanish sunshine. Breakfast was provided in a community setting cooked by some of the hostel volunteers. Great place to stay if you’re looking for a cheaper very social hostel environment.

We stayed in the pirates building for three nights. Our room was perfect with AC. The breakfasts although basic are more than adequate. The roof area fantastic; sheltered areas and open areas with seating and couches perfect for crashing out during the hottest part of the day. Everyone running both hostels was friendly and very helpful.
If you travel to Cádiz and want to stay in a hostel you won’t find a much better option.
