I haven't ventured to the Kasbah at night for many years but took a walk here during the day yesterday and the place really needs knocked down! The second we walked round the corner the boat party people practically ran at us and a man walked past and whispered 'hashish?' in my ear....no thanks. Some of the buildings next to... More

Me and the wife came here first night and that was enough. Groups of youths congregating, loads of timeshare scratchcard idiots trying to catch you and Shisha bars with bong pipes on the tables. Not to mention the place is very cramped together and claustraphobic. Looks very dated and we didn't feel at all safe.

The Kasbah Centre is centrally located with plenty of shops, restaurants and bars. There is also a Hyper Dino supermarket that is reasonably priced.

We seemed to end up here whichever way we went for a walk. A few small shops but all very dated. Walked through one evening and it looked busy with some music playing in the main plaza.

I came to this place 30 years ago I guess you don't think that things will change but sadly it's not the same as is the metro centre next door which has very few shops and mostly closed and run down
