Maybe I am just too old for an hostel that Lonely Planet reviews as "acceptable", but my experience at the Youth Hostel in Casablanca was terrible. The receptionist was rude, the room had no windows and it was right next to the kitchen (as many of the other rooms), with personnel talking loudly since 6 in the morning. The sheets... More

People are saying its clean but it isn't. After a difficult night of trying to fall asleep, I stayed around the lobby waiting for my flight out of casablanca. Sitting round, I saw the cleaning ladies literally just fold the sheets back up without bothering to change pillow covers or the mattress covers. Sheets themselves were smelly and moist. Got...

It's a clean and quiet hostel part of the Hostelling International network. Located just inside the western entrance of the old Medina about ten minute walk from the Casa Port train station (from the CMN airport take the hourly train to Casa Port station about 30 minutes ride 65 MAD US$7). The place does not have a bar or restaurant... More

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
