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

The location could hardly be more convenient to the Casa Port train station (and is about a 10 dirham cab ride from Casa Voyagers) in a really cute square just barely in the medina. It's a quick walk to Hassan II mosque and an even quicker walk to Rick's Cafe. The staff is ok--I've met way friendlier--and you need to... More

As others have mentioned, the hostel's hygiene standards aren't up to scratch by any country's standard. But do ask for sheets- they'll give you clean ones. We stayed in a family room; at 220 Dirham it's overpriced, but due to lack of competition it's the cheapest in Casablanca. Staff was ok, a bit abrupt at check in but quite nice... More

Very unfriendly staff, especially the receptionist who even yelled at us for forgetting a bag at the counter. The two women serving breakfast are, however, nice and friendly. The rooms are very, very basic. The beds have no sheets, only a used blanket, and are definitely not clean. I witnessed that they are being reused for the next customer without... More

This place was totally convenient if you were coming in by train as you stay on until the end of the line, get off and walk down the street a few blocks and you're there. Bryan was really helpful and there's information available for further travel. The place was virtually empty when I was there so I had my own... More

Based on some of the previous reviews, we were prepared for the worst. But there aren't many budget places that we could find online, so we thought we would give it a shot. The front desk staff were very pleasant and made their best attempt to fit us in, despite the fact that we didn't have a reservation. We stayed... More
