I had a great time at this hostel. The best part about it was the atmosphere - it was really easy to meet other travellers and the complimentary Moroccan tea & cookies were free-flowing. The owner was a pretty cool guy too. Breakfast was included, and there was free wifi, although it was a bit slow at times. The hostel... More

This is the best hostel in Marrakech. We crash there late in the night and they found a place to sleep even without a reservation. We like the mood in there! We meet a very nice travelers there. And the owner give us a lot of information a travel advices for the rest of our journey in Morocco.

We stayed here for 5 night and it was the best experience one can ever imagine. We paid 4.5 euros a night with breakfast included. On top of that they were making tea for us 4-5 a day for free, organised a trip to Sahara for us at a really good price(we checked other prices on the street as well)... More

Went to Marrakech on my own, the first time I've ventured out by myself actually. For this reason I wanted to stay somewhere where there was a chance of meeting fellow travellers to explore the city and have a few drinks with in the evenings. After reading reviews of Marrakech I was quite afraid of getting lost as soon as... More

Stayed there for two nights after a desert tour in Morocco and what a wonderful hostel. I was warmly welcomed the second I walked in and the staff were so unbelievable. Tea all of the time and a wonderful breakfast. Everyone at the hostel had a very relaxed vibe and I felt at home the whole time I was there.... More

Stayed here for the better part of a week with some friends of mine whilst in Marrakesh. One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in, the staff were unbelievably helpful and provide you with a huge breakfast every morning as well as mint tea throughout the day. Location was perfect and beds are surprisingly comfortable! They were doing... More

I chose Waka Waka due to its proximity to the main square, souks and hammams. I booked it for one night initially and ended up staying a whole week. The first thing you will notice is the amazing colourful decoration with natural light cascading in. You are served tea on arrival and unlimited top ups throughout the day. There is... More

I really liked the atmosphere of Morocco in this simple hostel. Service is very friendly. Wi fi is good. They also provide package tours to the desert. The hostel is located in the heart of Marrakech. And I love the tea this hostel provided.

I miss my Waka Waka family!!! Such generous and fun hosts. I was a solo female traveller and had a perfectly wonderful experience. I'd go back in a heartbeat. Bring earplugs (in every hostel), but noise varies with guests. Good times, homemade breakfast and dinner parties, great people.
