Have stayed here three times on two separate visits and found it on every occasion a clean, welcoming and friendly Moroccan experience. Fully recommend, excellent terrace, great facilities and wonderful staff who can help you get the best out of your stay in Essaouira. They have always provided free mint tea on arrival, a welcoming boost after the inevitable rigours... More

Friendly staff even walked us to the beach and a the surf school we were trying to find. We got a great price and a nice dorm room. The hostel is clean and has a nice terrane to relax on. We were invited to group dinners and the rooms were quiet at night.

This is honestly the best hostel in Essaouira. I am serious. Before finding this place I walked around to check out almost all of the hostels in the medina but this one attracted me more. Why? Because it was genuine. The guys who work here are real guys who want you to stay at their hostel and share their experiences... More

It was not really clean, sheets and sofas were dirty and facilities were quite damaged , some beds were not in proper condtion etc... The location was good , inside of medina. It is a bit hard to find it.

I stayed at this hostel for a whole week. The pace was immaculately clean- likely due to the cleaning lady who was there every single day. The beds were very comfortable, although a bit squeaky. Showers were ok, but no bog complaints. The wifi was pretty good, and the kitchen was adequate for cooking. No breakfast, but for the rate... More

I never usually write reviews - but now I feel I must. I said here for one night, and accidentally left my kindle. I contacted the owner, who said he had it and would sent it back to me. A week later, I received a $200 from Amazon - over 40 books had been downloaded - with titles such as... More

We just stayed for a night, but i have to say I really loved this place. It was easy to find because it shows up on our offline Ulmon map app. The directions given by the hostel were also pretty straightforward. Rooms were clean, didn't notice any bed bugs. the atmosphere was great. The way they set up the hostel... More

The supratour bus from marrakesh drops you off just around the "bab marrakesh" entrance to the medina . As soon as you get in the medina, just go straight and keep notice of small signages in white and blue text. "Essaouira hostel". Googling this location would be advisable as the essaouira do not have the best of street signages( worse... More
