Everyone in the hostel is good at heart and warmly welcoming. We went surfing and have been taken to good spots around essaouira, moroccan food inclusive (best berbere omelette ever). The surfing instructor Youssef is really good, bringing you to the next level - if beginner, intermediate oder advanced. Simmo will organise the trips and everything you need for a... More

We found this place by accident after getting a hotel in Marrakesh and organizing day trips. The Hostel owner called me the day before to go over logistics since we had a 2.5 hour drive to them she wanted to personally make sure we got there ok (which really put our minds at ease) once there we had such a...

Had a wonderful stay at surf and chill. It's very clean, tidy and comfortable. The hospitality is outstanding- they helped us hire a car which we wouldn't have done otherwise. They also showed us the best tagine we've had in morocco! Would highly recommend- thanks Ryan, Cathrine, Aiesha and Simo for a great time :)

I spent a week in Essaouira and stayed here, and it's safe to say it really made my trip. The location of the hostel is great, inside the medina and near the main gate of Bab Marrakech made it really convenient for exploring. The rooms and facilities are clean and the beds very comfortable with clean fresh sheets (a real... More

We went to Essaouira to get away from Marrakech for a few days. We met some people in the street and they told us about this hostel. Good place to stay and they also offered cheap surf lessons, which we took. A really good experience over all!

Although the rooms are basic and the showers didn't always have hot water it is without a doubt one of the more fun hostels I have ever stayed at. A small place with friendly, very chilled out staff and a relaxed atmosphere. It's the perfect place if you want to meet other travelers, there are a lot of surfers staying... More

The Surf and Chill hostel is located deep in the Essaouira's medina (old town) with shops, beach, city's port and restaurants "at arm's length". The neighbourhood is quiet and clean. The hostel staff are very friendly, reliable and responsive people, especially Wadie, a friend of the hostel's owner. There are 2 shared bathroom areas which are clean and comfortable. The... More
