The people staying in this hostel were amazing which is what saved it. The breakfast wasn't great. But there was always tea. They seem to put as many beds in a dorm as possible. I didn't get a good feeling from some of the people who worked there and always arched my stuff. Some things had gone missing while I... More

Cheap and good location, other than the alarm which goes off sporadically over town has a speaker right next to hostel so early mornings. Beds not great, staff kind of annoying, decent enough social vibe. There are better, but there are probably more that aren't as good. Safe bet

Great hostel in Marrakesh! Your not always guaranteed a hot shower however everything else makes up for this! The hostel itself is clean and your sheets are replaced everyday. You receive a full hot breakfast everyday with a selection of pastries. And the staff are so helpful and are always willing to give you some insight about Marrakesh or give... More

for location you can't fault this hostel. From Cafe France you are less than 2 minutes walk away. a little hard to find as it is tucked away at the end of an alley. The alley has the word rainbow painted on the wall. When you enter you find a traditional Moroccan building with all rooms coming off a central... More

definetely recommend! great location - 2 minutes to Jemaa el Fna and the souks, and amazing rooftop terrace - really good for hanging out in the evening and having a couple beers with fellow travellers (they sell beer right at the hostel, the price is quite reasonable for Marrakech). rooms are nice enough, and if it's too hot, you can...

During our stay in September, the hostel was busy which was positive for meeting fellow travellers but in the evening the heat was too much. For two nights we slept in an 8 bed dorm which was uncomfortably hot and loud being next to the common room. We then chose to have a few nights on the room terrace to... More

Amazing atmosphere. Staff were wonderful being incredibly helpful, warm and friendly. Happy to go above and beyond for you. Breakfast was huge and delicious. Amazing roof top (really nice to sleep on too). Good, clean and working facilities and great location. Can't wait to come back

If you want to have little fun while you are in Marrakech, Rainbow is the place. You will be right in the heart of the action Jmaa el Fna with its monkeys, snakes and souks. The staff is very helpful. Thanks to Nacer, Azdin, Karim, Jaoud, Hussein.

I travelled to Marrakech in December 2014. I stayed at the Rainbow Hostel in Marrakech for 3 nights and I was very disappointed. First of all the hostel has no heating whatsoever and since neither the doors of the rooms nor the windows do close properly, you can imagine how cold the place was at night. Secondly I was deceived... More

Very chill, friendly hostel. Lots of rooms so huge variety of ppl, 2 min from the square, lovely tea & breakfast, great roof overlooking the Medina. No lockers so keep valuables near you but felt safe.
