Well it is very cheap and you get what you get for this money: a bed and breakfast. Very cold in the winter cause they don't have heaters or conditioners, there are no blankets, men's wc don't have doors. Though it is situated in a square next to the other much pricier hotel, and it's near the ocean and train... More

I don't get why people always seem to give bad reviews when it comes to hostels, I mean what do you think you are expecting, to be honest it's not the best hostel, but it's also not the worst, the place seemed reasonably clean & tidy & the Dorm I was staying in didn't have any bunks which was a...

Booked a private family room for a couple and while it was spacious, it was very basic. Blankets provided were warm and beds were okay. Its a very open-spaced hostel so was pretty noisy at times. Stayed two nights, and the second night, heard someone running and made a loud crash/ bang noise in one of the rooms. That was... More

To be straight to the point, our room smelled like cat piss, and looked worse. Not joking. I do not recomend this hostel to anyone. There are not many options in Casablanca, but we recomend to pay a bit more and stay in some where else.

For 15€ you can't expect more: it was clean, well located, it has wifi and the sheets were at least clean (after asking for new ones). So i would not highly recommand this place, but you can stay there.

The first time I came, 3 weeks ago the place seemed to be running well. It might be for the low season or for the ramadan, but if its quiet dont expect the same level of professionalism. The person in charge was friendly enough when I arrived. But I was a bit surprised to hear that the hotel was going... More

Look, as it says above, for $6, what do you expect? The staff was friendly, the place was reasonably clean, the wifi worked, and you're right in the Medina. I've seen quite a few complaints about this place. I'll reiterate; it's $6 a night! As a backpacker, think about equipping yourself with at least your own toilet paper, earplugs, and... More

I was looking for a cheap place to spend one night and it was cheap. Thus as expected - not very clean and not very cozy. Room I stayed in wasn't nice and one could hear everything from the corridor and other rooms. Good things - it's in a good location, staff was friendly (one guy a bit too friendly),... More

NOT RECOMMENDED. Steer clear of this hostel. It was closed when I arrived (even though I booked it and they charged money on the day after). I tried to knock on the door and call reception but to no avail. Not to mention there were couple of junkies and drunks sitting on a front porch. So I had to find... More
