My female friend and I easily went from the big square to the hostel only with the directions provided by them, we didn't need any transfer from the airport (we caught the local bus for 30dh each) and we didn't ask for information. The door of the hostel is a bit hidden, but we had no problem finding it (you... More

I loved my stay at waka waka hostel! the atmosphere is amazing, everything is chill and relaxed. the common room is nice and big and comfortable. The roof terrace is beautiful. The beds are a little hard, but they are fine. There are 3 bathrooms, and most of the time this was enough, sometimes you had to wait a little.... More

The staffs are really nice and are doing their very best to make you feel comfortable. The beds are clean and comfortable. It's not perfect though, because there is not enough bathrooms... More

This hostel made me feel very welcomed and definitely added to my Marrackech experience. The common areas were always playing good music and relaxed conversation with other travellers and the staff was always flowing. Some evenings the music was loud and conversation lively but the staff makes sure to stop or quiet down at 2300. After busy days in Marrakech... More

I stayed at Waka Waka twice within 3 months and had a great time both times. Hussein and Karim are the best and even remembered me from 3 months earlier. The hospitality was really welcoming with tea upon arrival and a hustle free environment, which was relieving for Morocco - where you get tricked and conned constantly. I felt like... More

Spent my first night at Waka Waka celebrating the end of Ramadan. Morocco is one of the most memorable experiences of my life, would 100% visit again and would definitely return to stay here! The owners were very helpful and friendly in making the Moroccan experience exactly what it should be. Met some truly amazing and like minded travellers that... More

Hostel Waka Waka offers a great social atmosphere for travellers at an incredible price. There is always a good vibe to the place, 24 hours a day. They welcome guests with tea and biscuits and often throw parties and cook for the guests. I would only say don't come to this hostel if you don't want to socialise and make... More

Amazing atmosphere here. We arrived, and immediately welcomed in by Hussein, with tea and biscuits. Staying here felt like a little family, as everyone was sociable, and we would cook meals together, and eat it on the lovely roof terrace. I can't recommend Waka Waka enough!
