Very friendly atmosphere with the best host SIMO!!! if you ever need any help with anything he will not hesitate to help you out! He's got few attractions in store and always knows the best spots to go to! ('whole in the wall' personal favorite) ;) The accommodation itself is also very good. Location is also very convenient with shops... More

Simo is the best. He will show you all the hidden spots in Esso, take you surfing, and basically just leave you with a special form of Moroccan hospitality that is something you'll remember for years. Be sure to listen to his advice on everything. And let him teach you how to surf if you dont know already. I planned... More

The atmosphere at surf and chill is one which not only reflects the chilled feel of Essaouira, but of Moroccan culture itself. The hostel is clean and tidy but also beautifully decorated. Simo is a great host, and also becomes a friend, as were all of the other guests at the time. I would definitely recommend staying here when visiting... More

Great value, clean and airy rooms, clean bathrooms, great kitchen, BRILLIANT location but the best part about this hostel BY FAR was the staff. Simmo is an absolute delight; taking us out for dinner, showing us where the locals hang out, I couldn't have asked for better service. Thanks so much Surf n Chill & Simmo; you guys are brilliant!

Awesome little hostel that makes you feel right at home, Simo is great fun and will not only help you make the most out of your stay but also be a great friend to hang out with. He took us to some great surf spots and on a spot of tree goat hunting. Check out his surf camps here too... More

We had the time of our lifes surfin and chillin with Simo... More
