I spent two nights at this hostel and will definitely be going back for more! We booked online, so it was only 40MAD per night (€4) and was such a great place. It is all decked out in cool Moroccan décor, and the rooftop terrace is really relaxed. There are no windows in the rooms so it gets quite hot... More

I spent 5 nights in this hostel, and enjoyed every single one of them. The staff is super friendly, helpful, and works long and hard hours. They have only three bathrooms (with toilet and shower), but somehow I never had to wait long to use one. Everything (kitchen, bathrooms, common areas) was kept very very clean, which is a huge...

The hostel was quite hard to find, tucked away deep in the old market section and poorly signed. The staff were friendly though there was only one main area downstairs that had wifi and a place to chill. Unfortunately with such a small area the noise from the tv clashes with the music which clashes with the conversation and makes... More

I stayed at waka waka for two nights, with a three day visit to the Sahara in-between. This hostel exceeded my expectations beyond belief it was by far the most comfortable and hospitable hostel I have stayed in. The manager and staff were incredible host and treated us as if we were guest in their own house with constant mint... More

We got back from the sahara and came to Waka Waka for two nights, and it was such a delightful stay. The staff were very friendly, the breakfast was amazing and above all it was clean. The staff are very relaxed, on point with mint tea and lovers of shisha. Couldn't have had a better time here and met so... More

Fabulous hostel, with very friendly staff who really know the meaning of customer service. Quirky decor, lovely atmosphere, great food, great price, superb location, free WiFi, mint tea and shisha available all day, superb roof terrace, very clean and safe. A little hard to find initially, but friendly locals assisted us. Highly recommended.

This hostel is basically a party hostel, so if you are looking to meet other travelers, this hostel would be good for you. Almost everybody that checked into the hostel was friendly and sociable. I liked it, but there were some definite cons that made my stay not as enjoyable as I had hoped. The reasons I gave only 3... More

I have stayed in many hostels and this place has such a great, chilled atmosphere like nowhere I've stayed before. On arrival you're given mint tea and biscuits (they give you unlimited shisha and tea- it's so lovely!) and almost at once I felt at home and relaxed. There's always music playing downstairs and everyone hangs out either there or... More

For the duration of my time spent in this hostel i felt like i was at home. Beautiful staff, hand on foot service 24 hours round the clock and unlimited shisha. Simply sublime. In 200 characters it would be impossible to describe the impact that characters i had the fortune to meet at this hostel will continue to have on... More

Pros - AMAZING place, great staff and fun environment! Cons - No air conditioning in the rooms (too hot and unbearable in the summer) and place is hard to find. If you can get over the cons, you are in for quite an experience. One of the best hostels, hands down!!! Thank you Hussain :)
