The staff was amazing. Whether it was setting up a hookah with Moroccan tea at 2 am or walking you to their favorite restaurant, they always did it with a smile. Incredible location and ambiance. With pool was a life saver. Pay the extra for A/C

This hostel is a perfect place to stay in Marrakech. It is beautiful inside, it looks more like an expensive boutique hotel than a cheap backpackers' place and this made it a wonderful place to return to after a long day of exploring the city. A dip in the central plunge pool is a great way to cool of and... More

It is located near the most famous place (Central market Djama el Fna)! Easy to find it though! They have also all the services to take you from the airport and facilities to the... More

I don't think there is any negative of this hostel. Amazing location, right in the city centre and in walking distance of everything (although,it is tricky to find at first so you will need the help of locals). The staff are so welcoming, friendly and helpful and we have good fun with them throughout our stay. They went above and... More

Great location, right next to D'jemaa El Fna. Great atmosphere and lovely, helpful staff and owners. Helped us with organising excursions all over Morocco for good low prices, and showed us the best places to go in Marrakech. Hostel itself is beautiful and has a great terrace! Would Recommend to anyone!!

I've been in morocco for 15 days and have traveled to many of the big cities and popular destinations and this was my favorite place to stay of anywhere that I went. NOTE: this place isn't a 5 star hotel, it is absolutely the best place for the price but there isn't temper-pedic beds and huge walk in bathrooms. To... More

Great atmosphere and very central location. Laid back aproachable staff are always willing to answer ANY questions you fire at them. They offer alot of packages like all other hostels but its often cheaper to organise trips yourselfs. Pool is good for a dip. Slept on terraces most nights due to the heat. Beds arent the most comfortable but all... More

The hospitality of the owners and employees was great and generally the atmosphere was good. However, I was a let down by a number of aspects after reading previous reviews. Observations: -no air con or fans- super hot in rooms -sheets were never cleaned on any of the beds the whole time we were there -shower only worked properly on... More

This is exactly what I look for when traveling a foreign country alone: A+ location, amazing/helpful/flexible staff, beautiful spaces for hanging out, tons of other travelers, and a cheap, comfortable place to sleep. Would recommend Riad Dia to anyone in a heartbeat.

We attended a cooking course at Riad Dia with chef Aida. We learnt to cook 3 different savory dishes and one sweet. The day started by going to the market with two lovely girls from the hostel to buy all the ingredients for the food we chose to cook. Aida then helped us prepare all of the food and took... More

What is Riad Dia? Quite simply, it is the house that you may have once designed in your head and thought "no, it's just not possible I could ever live in a place like this." An incredible traditional riad with the atmosphere of a backpackers hostel. ... more   less
