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

Bardzo dobre położenie, świetny filmik pokazujący, jak dotrzeć do hostelu - warto skorzystać. Sam hostel ciekawie urządzony, przyjazna obsługa. Oczywiście nastawiona na sprzedaż, ale jeśli da im się do zrozumienia, że jesteś tak tylko po nocleg nie narzucają się z niczym. Pomogą w każdej sytuacji. Warto nie krępować się i pytać. Prosty nocleg w przyzwoitych warunkach, wart swojej niedużej ceny.... More

I visited three times while on a trip to morkcco and was never dissapointed - the staff were friendly and would try their best to adcomodate us no matter how busy it ws. The breakfast was great as was the free tea on arrival. Beautiful riad and great atmosphere - I love the marrakech rose!

I did not like my stay at the Rainbow Marrakech because I did not like the staff, I would not recommend this place. But that does not mean you will have a terrible experience too.

The hostel is well located next to the Place Jemaa el fna, but its although very quiet. The staff is friendly they weren't bothered to order taxis. Hicham was kind, he really like to chat with the guests. The rooms are nice, except the room on the roof (the room were we slept) is very tight.

This accomodation is superb value and in an excellent location, just a few minutes from Jeema El Fna square and therefore close to numerous restaurants, the market and of course the souks. The management were very accommodating and helpful, made us feel very comfortable and offered very good advice on restaurants, trips and prices we should pay in the souks.... More
