Seriously one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. They're very accommodating and helpful. The breakfast is AMAZING. It's absolutely huge for a hostel. The location is great, right beside a ham am if you fancy one. Also, they have a cat, which is a big seller for me. One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. Would... More

Staff are as helpful and friendly as possible. The place is the friendliest hostel I have ever stayed in. The rooms are clean and cosy. Look out for the resident tortoise on the roof and if you have some they really love to munch watermelon. Look forward to staying here again on my next rip to marrakech.

The staff at the hostel almost force you to write a review in front of them and give 100% so I'm unsure how accurate some of the reviews are on Hostel World. Saying that, I don't know why they feel they need to tell people to give them 100% because this hostel is easily the best I stayed in Morocco... More

This hostel has everything you can ask for in a hostel, super friendly and helpful staff (especially Ali!), amazing breakfast, comfortable and clean rooms and dorms and a very relaxed atmosphere. The location is absolutely ideal in the medina and the house is beautiful (although I do have a few concerns when it comes to fire safety..). If you are... More

Only the friendliest people work here! Moroccan tea, cookies, shisha, they will kindly bring you all. Great service, the location was perfect and the best hostel i've stayed at so far! They really made me feel at home and gave me a hard time to leave.

Great location about 4min walk front the main square. We got a private double room on the third floor, which was ideal as it was a bit cooler than staying on a lower floor. The staff were only too happy to help, and would make a (free) tea/coffee at any time of day or night on request. Hamouda in particular... More

Best way to experience Marrakech, stayed here after hitch hiking from the UK. Great atmosphere, lovely decor, social and chilled out.. all for so cheap! Nice breakfast, unlimited mint tea and shisha, really enjoyed staying here. Got moved to a sister hostel on third night which was also great!

This hostel made our stay in Marrakech so enjoyable. The beds were comfy, even in the 10-person dorm. The breakfast was filling, the location is ideal to explore the medina and city, the rooftop was beautiful and the free shisha was the way to end the night right. The absolute best part of this hostel was the amazing staff. They... More

Pros: Owners/hosts were great and welcoming. Interesting building and rooftops views. Nice sightseeing package tours available (we enjoyed the Essaouira and 3-day Sahara trips). Cons: Sound from common area travels. Showers could have been warmer. We were happy overall with our stay here, and highly recommend it for other backpackers and budget travelers. :)

As a westerner coming to Africa this place made Marrakech feel like home. The entire place is intricate and beautiful. The hostel is all open air and very communal. The staff there were as hospitable as I've ever seen and that's coming from someone from Georgia. The breakfast was homemade and authentic. There was also complementary hookah for those who... More
