The hostel itself is not too bad. The place is really colourful, but the beds are very uncomfortable. However, I got eaten alive by hundreds of bedbugs. On my right hand alone I have over 60 bites, and the rest of my body is equally bitten. There are so many of them, you can see them crawling over the floor.... More

I stayed at this hostel for three nights with my friends, and we loved it. The stuff spoke English well - which is not common in Morocco in general -, the hostel was really nice, with common places on the ground floor and on the terrace, and with lots of foreign, young travelers. On Sunday, we had dinner there, that... More

I stayed at this riad for four nights. I was greeted by a warm smile and welcoming atmosphere. The hotelier Sayd brought me some delicious tea and sweets. He is from the Sahara and was kind enough to answer all of my questions regarding his culture, customs and where to visit on my stay. He had a very warm disposition... More

Rainbow is a converted riad and the interior is absolutely stunning: colorful, laid-back common area, and a beautiful terrace to relax on at night. They give you a huge free breakfast of assorted breads, which I made into two meals each day. I stayed for 4 nights and met great people. Hassan (who runs the place) as well as his... More

A colourful hostel located inside the medina, very close to the Place Jemaa El Fna. The location is good although a bit hard to find at first, hidden in a small alley. With extremely friendly staff you will feel right at home here. It's a perfect place for meeting other travelers. They offer a good Moroccon breakfast and can help... More

I travelled with a group of 40 students and we stayed at Rainbow hostel. It has a beautiful common room where we were offered tea immediately. The rooms are nice and the location is great. I would recommend staying at this hostel!

We arrived in Central station of Marrakech very late in the evening. So decided to call the hostel to inform them we would be late for our check-in. The hostel said it was no problem... They even offered to pick us up at the trainstation... We decided to walk because we wanted to see the city at night. Unfortunately when... More

Spent two nights at the hostel in a single room - price was at par with other central Dars and Riads in Marrakesh. Rooms and community areas are quite clean. My bed however was the most worn through and unstable bunk bed I ever slept in in my entire life. Rooms are also extremely noisy - very close to mosque... More
