I will be working in Algiers or Hassi Messaoud. I'm wondering how much freedom I would have.
I'm Canadian caucasian and working in the oil/gas industry. Putting data into software.
Would I be able to run along the beach. I'm not much into sightseeing so I would only want to get outside because of cabin fever etc..
Thanks in advance.
Is it safe to visit? and is 1 week enough?
I am planning on going to algeria in a few weeks, hopefully. There are not any cheap hostels in algiers, algeria online, like many other countries, so I will have to find one via word of mouth. I am looking for nothing more than 15 dollars a night. Have any backpackers been to algiers? If anyone knows of some hostels that are very low budget, let me know the name and address. I would really appreciate it. I have already searched the internet. Thank you!
I have just google searched an looked around for budget Accomodation. I cant seem to find anything in Algiers.
What im after is either: BnB, hostel, motel, hotel
cost 10-50 USD/Euro a night.
location: either city centre or pretty mucrh anywhere in Algiers that has access to the metro/transport.
any websites or reccomendation will be helpful.
P.S im a budget traveler

Tell me please, good beaches of Algiers!
I'll be living in a hotel "Grand Hôtel des Étrangers", near the railway station "Gare Centrale".
I ask them to indicate on a map and tell how to get to.
When is it best to go to Algeria, that could swim to the sea and in the desert is not too hot?
Oh, i see i'm not the only one who asks about safety in Algiers. I found a ticket not very expensive for a weekend in Algiers but the recommendations from my government are very bad. they say don't go alone, don't visit the casbah, don't go without a person from the country...just what i wanted to do :-((. How is the situation really there?...it would be more useful to know the opinion from non algerian people, who went there as tourists, like me.
Thanks a lot,
Are there any beaches in Algiers that you can swim at? If so, is it appropriate wear a normal guys' bathing suit(shorts) in Algeria? Also, is Algiers safe for a white American? Is Algeria a very conservative country? Can I wear shorts and a t-shirt, or is it innapropriate? PLEASE REPLY ASAP!! Thanks a ton!!!!!!!!!
I am thinking of visiting Algiers in May 2006.I would really welcome some information about the advisability of such a trip as I am a woman and I will probably be travelling on my own.My Govt travel pages are quite negative. I have also read some pages by VT members who live there.Friends from Algiers believe it is safe to visit now. I would not be going beyond the city. Please, I am so hoping you will respond with not only some travel tips but also some places to see when I get there. Thanking you in advance Jackie
Hi, My husband is Algerian. He wants to take me this spring. I want to go and meet his family but at the same time I'm a little scared. I was wondering how much restrication is on women over there. I wont get stuck there if I want to leave the country and he doesn't. I've just heard so many horriable stories about women being forced to stay in a country. thank you
We are going to Algiers and we need to find what do we expect to pay for a round trip from Paris in June. We also need to know the hotel prices on the beach. Thank you.
