Campus & Facilities

At Saifi Institute students have access to a variety of facilities to help them study and relax.

A lively, affordable and truly mixed place.

Library

The institute houses a peaceful library area on the first floor with chairs and tables where students can study and complete group projects.  We also provide some board games for students to play.

A collection of books is available in English, French and Arabic (the three languages used in the Levant). Students and teachers can donate used and unwanted books to the library for everyone to enjoy.

Stadium

There is a stadium area on the second floor where we regularly hold free movie nights for students. We also use it to give special presentations to students on a variety of topics relating to the Arab world.  Details of these talks and movie night are provided on the website under special events.

Garden

Just below the institute is a small garden with tables and chairs where you can relax, hang out and eat lunch.  Our garden provides students with some calm, green space away from the bustle of Gemmazye.

Café Em Nazih

At the base of the steps below the institute is a café serving home-style Lebanese food at reasonable prices. Café Em Nazih is a relaxing open-air space surrounded by trees that serves drinks (non-alcoholic and alcoholic) and food from 8 am every morning until 4 am. The café serves a dish of the day as well as traditional Lebanese mezze and breakfast dishes. On the weekend it hosts traditional Lebanese music and dancing, and during the week runs a pub quiz (in English) where foreigners and Lebanese mingle to test their general knowledge skills!

Saifi Urban Gardens Hostel

Saifi Urban Gardens Hostel offers clean and reasonably priced accommodation located next door to the school which makes it a convenient choice for students studying at the institute. The hostel offers private rooms (and bath), or shared dorms inclusive of internet wi-fi and breakfast at Café Em Nazih.

Coop d’Etat

On the roof of Saifi Urban Gardens Hostel is a bar providing great views of the city and a cool breeze in summer. Coop d’Etat offers music, cocktails and dancing until late every night if you have the time and energy to party after Arabic class! The bar also offers American style food and snacks.
