Guess what? Byblos is also named and spelled Jbeil - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.

Byblos (Jbeil), Lebanon, is one of the world's oldest continuously inhabited cities, with a history of eight thousand years. The city has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the most interesting places to visit in the Middle Eastern country of Lebanon. While Byblos is the name mentioned in most guidebooks, it is officially not the current name of the city; Byblos is the historical name, but Jbeil is the Arabic name that locals use and which is often used on official signs.

The archaeological sites are what attract most people to Byblos. You can easily spend several hours to explore the ruins that can be found all over the central part of the city around the Crusaders Castle, which dates back to the twelfth century. However, Byblos, Lebanon is not only about seeing the historical landmarks. Byblos has a great vibrant souk, containing plenty of food stalls and restaurants, as well as local and souvenir shops. Just a short walk from the souk you will find Byblos’ port. Once a busy port, the port area is now more of a laid-back place -- it’s a pretty area with many good restaurants. A little bit further away, you will find a sandy beach where you can watch the sun set over the Mediterranean Sea. Byblos is a small city and all landmarks are concentrated, making the use of public transport within the town unnecessary.

Your options for a hostel in Byblos (Jbeil), Lebanon, will be extremely limited, as what exists is an accommodation that is sometimes referred to as a Byblos (Jbeil), Lebanon hostel, but it is rather a budget hotel with private rooms only. The lack of Byblos (Jbeil), Lebanon hostels is no reason to skip a visit to this picturesque seaside city. Lebanon’s capital Beirut is only thirty-five kilometers away, minibuses leave continuously and fares extremely inexpensive, so it may be a good idea to book a hostel in Beirut instead and travel to Byblos by bus as a day trip.
