I used Saifi Urban Gardens as a short term place to stay while searching for a more permanent accommodation. I would say it is good for what you pay. The private rooms are spacious with their own shower room. Beds are comfortable and the linen is clean. It would be good if the rooms had a kettle and a small...

Great location, great atmosphere and great concept! This is probably the best low cost place in Beirut. It's full during at least a week so make sure to book in advance. The only bad point is that they know they are the best in this category in Beirut and sometimes they are a bit arrogant and the service is a...

Me and my girlfriend spent 4 days at Saifi , first impression .. everything is old and broken , the staff were there for nothing , we HAD to move to another room because someone else needed/booked our room ( like i care ). Verry verry noisy and unpleasant smell inside the room. The only thing good was the AC...

We needed a reasonable place to stay in Beirut for 2 nights and decided to experience Saifi Urban Gardens. Despite its nice-looking atmosphere, we found it very uncomfortable and definitely not worthy of long stay. The only positive thing perhaps was the hot water, free Wi Fi and AC. The room/bed attracts mosquito/bug and even though we got mosquito repellent,...

Spent three nights at Saifi. Frankly, a 2/5 rating is too high, but as the showers had plenty hot water, the beds were comfortable and the sheets clean, I couldn't give it the lowest rating. My biggest gripe was the noise. Friday and Saturday nights are unbearable, with EXTREMELY noisy live music in the ground floor café that go on...

Finding somewhere on a budget in Beirut is hard. But look no further! Saifi urban gardens, where we stayed for three nights whilst in Beirut was great. Location was excellent and just a 5 min walk from martyrs sq. The restaurant below serves excellent and good value Lebanese food and the rooms whilst simple are comfortable and clean. At $50...

The hostel is cheap and even cheaper if you stay long term to do one of the Arabic language courses. It isn't too far from the city centre, the awful souks and the life saving corniche. It is a clean hostel but run down, the Nazih family only lease the building and work hard with the cafe and entertainment side...

Nice area- easy to reach, nearly in the middle of the town. Near to Gemayze Street and to all of its bars, pubs and restaurants. The rooftop bar and also the cafe/restaurant at the basement serve good food. But the hotel/hostel was poor: not very friendly staff both rooms had large spots of mold on the ceiling and walls and...

What a brilliant night out. The food was good, but what made the evening were the live bands playing traditional Lebanese songs. The atmosphere was really good. I would book if I have the chance to go again. We sat inside by the window, but I would have loved to have been in the courtyard.

I loved this place for being an island in an adventurous place. I could walk to most spots in town. The Corniche is in about ten walking minutes distance. Most staff speaks English. Very helpful. I met travelers from all over the globe. Daily room service if you wanted. I have been there in December, so I chose not to...

“Apparently the upstairs front rooms are noisier, than the back rooms, which overlook the bus station.”

“They are all the same. Either it's a single room or group share. They all seem to be of an average standard. I had no complaints about that part of things. Wifi is terrible and logs out every time your phone sleeps. So get your own local phone with affordable internet. Get an upstairs room as downstairs rooms have no natural light and view of a wall of drinks crates.”
