We only stayed one night unfortunately, but this was a great hostel, friendly, safe and clean, located close to the old town square. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, we felt at home straight away. I recommend this place to anyone who wants to meet some nice folk and chill Out on the terrace.

Our stay was absolutely perfect. The room are cheap but cosy, breakfast is excellent, the terrace is great and everybody is SO nice. The location is perfect, in the medina. You must stay there, that is for sure!

Now i see that a lot of travelers share my opinion about the hostel owner, British lady Emma. She really IS very rude and totally not helpful. As a hostel owner i kindly ask her for discount and i did not get any answer. We had to pay extra for keeping my small bag for few hours ( totally nonsense).... More

Dear Bojana, It's totally fine to ask for a discount but it is a different thing to demand one and be upset and rude if you don't get it. And to be honest, we don't really see the point in giving a discount for a one night stay in a dorm at 68MDH (6.20€) per bed. As you mentioned correctly... More

Great place to stay, very relaxed environment. As previously reviewed, fantastic terrace on the rooftop with nice views of the town and mountains. Anne made sure our stay was comfortable (we booked two days but liked it so well that we stayed for a third day, missing our extra day in Fes... but well worth it!)

Our group stayed here for one night and that's enough. The lady owner was rude, arrogant and lots of don'ts in this hostel treating this hostel like an university hostel. Practically no facilities provided. Even though they have a small kitchen, it's out of bound. Private use only. Practically no space to move around and the rooms are so small,... More

We loved this place!! The views, atmosphere, staff, cleanliness, rooms, food - everything was amazing. This is a have-to-stay destination in Marrakech. also male sure that you book - a lot of travellers had tp find other accommodation as Anne was fully booked, and understandably so. The only negative was that Anne had a full-on confrontation with one of her... More

Rooms were clean, bathrooms clean, lovely rooftop terrace with loads of space to hang out. Breakfast was really good and cheap as well. Great wifi! All the staff was great, we had a great time with Anne,... More

Not only the rooms are extremely clean but also the people there are fantastic!!The wifi, and the map drawn on the wall made everything so easy! Plus Chaouen is such a lovely blue town! I even met an American couple who stayed there a couple of years ago and now revisited the riad again!! I love the sweet butter bread... More

Best hostel in all of Morocco! If you go, make sure to bring some chewing tobacco for Anne ;) The roof terrace and decks give you incredible views of the mountains, and Anne is honestly the best person in the world. She will protect you from the hagglers and give advice for all the things to do in the city!
