In the centre of town

You find the Hostal Africa situated in a privileged district of the historical part of Tarifa and you will be enchanted by the relaxed atmosphere of the hostel and its warm and welcoming surroundings.

Let us invite you

We reformed an antique house of the 19th century to transform it into a welcoming space for travelers. Many have passed in the last 14 years of its existence and they all enjoyed the lovely atmosphere and tranquility of our hostel, where we offer all kinds of useful information, so our guests can enjoy an all-round holiday.

Small is beautiful

We only have 13 rooms, with a pretty courtyard full of flourishing plants and a breathtaking panoramic terrace, where you have a splendid view over the roofs of the old town, across the straights of Gibraltar to the African coastline. There you can relax after a day on the beach or sightseeing.


Travelers and tourists of all walks of life and countries visit us every year. They enrich our house with their culture, languages and mentalities.


We offer an excellent price-quality balance, with laundry service, WIFI and storage room for sports equipment and bikes. Also your luggage can be stored there if you like to go for a visit to Morocco.

Welcome to the Hostal Africa! The hostel opened its doors in 1998 and we are working since then with the same enthusiasm and spirit offering a centric place which is comfortable, simple and economic. Situated in the centre of the old town, you can enjoy marvelous views from our terrace over the surrounding roofs to the Straights of Gibraltar and further on to the African coastline. Tarifa is perfect for either enjoying numerous outdoors options, or to simply have a well deserved rest.
