Travellers Rest Souika is very well placed near the main square. It can also be accessed from the bottom end of the medin from Lalla Horra. Basic clean rooms with plenty of shared bathrooms dotted around the building. Has a good restaurant with fair prices. Good rooftop terrace with views over the town but the rooftop is also used for...

Pension Souika is just a stone's throw away from Medina, located in the narrow street of enchanting Chefchaouen with many great shops offering all sorts of merchandise. Rooms are nice and cosy, some of the staff friendly, talkative and eager to please. The hostel is great value for money, very popular with young people.It is pretty clean, with all the... More

The hotel is located in a town centre, in the centre of beautiful medina. The room we slept in was comfortable and cosy. The staff speaks good English. It feels like in hostel, cause many young people stay there. The disadvantage is that there's only 1 bathroom for 1 floor and it's quite small and not so clean.

I had a brilliant experience at Penstion Souika. There's something about Chefchaouen that is just magical, probably helps that everywhere is blue... Anyways!! This hostel is lovely, great value, very quirky. I paid the extra euro for a bed in a dorm as opposed to matress on the roof, though they didn't look to shabby either! Everything was very clean-...

Chefchauouen is an enchanting and beautiful place and I would 100% recommend going there. I came to hostel Souika cause I was on a shoestring and was in the mood for meeting some other travellers. I paid 40DHS (4 euros) for a bed on the terrace, and did as I intended. It is a nice hostel apart from the people... More

I started my trip around Morocco in Marakesh and I really wasn't keen on it because of all the hassle and noise etc. Chefchaouen generally was such a welcome break and Souika was brilliant. You can sleep on the roof terrace for about 40 or 50 Dirhams which makes it incredibly cheap and the terrace is really lovely and has... More

If your just looking for the cheapest place in town it's good value at 40DH for a bed on the terrace, wifi and some stinky toilets. Often some hash dealers hang around the entrance because they know the kind of people who lodge there but they are no trouble

Very cheap and very noisy. Friendly staff. One toilet and shower per floor (about 20+ persons). This hostel (neither hotel nor pensione) is very close to the main square and a good location from which to explore the haunting blue hillside town's alleyways.

This place was pretty cool and Chefchaouen is a very very cool place. The directions are very easy once you get to the main pedestrian square. You can sleep in rooms or you can use the cheaper option of sleeping in the open air upstairs which I did and it was fine. There are large square tents inter-connected all around... More

As far as hostels in Morocco go this place is pretty good! Located perfectly just of the main square in the medina. Nice roof terrace and a couple of lounges with couches to relax. I was here in the end of November which means it get's pretty cold at night. The place doesn't have any indoor heating (none of the... More
