I haven't even left the hostel yet but I couldn't wait any longer to leave a review. The hostel is lovely and absolutely gorgeous. They have a wide variety of room choices and each of them is spacious enough. The whole experience is amazing. The hostel is incredibly clean and the staff are all super friendly and devoted to providing... More

I don't even know where to begin. Chefchaouen is such a magical city in and of itself, but if you wander the tight, blue paths you'll eventually stumble across an absolute GEM of accommodation. As my title indicates, I'm coming up on 4 months of traveling, between Australia, Southeast Asia and much of Europe and this is most definitely the... More

The lady who owns it is super friendly! Very clean, especially for Morocco! Best roof top terrace! Highly recommend. Have been here twice! A little hard to find at first.. At the main entrance, go right and then the first left and keep walking and you will see the sign. We even got a little farewell as we left!

We genuinely loved staying at this hostel,the double room was great value, the breakfast that's available was delicious and a welcome break from heaps of bread, the staff are lovely and helpful organising days trips or onwards travel, and the roof terrace was the best I saw in Morocco.

The main indication of how much we liked this hostel was that we stayed there about 10 nights, far longer than we originally planned. There are several reasons why this is is so: Firstly, it was the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in. Secondly, the people who worked there were really helpful and friendly, always willing to help, give... More

Great hostel clean and well located! I will definitely book it again on my next trip in Chaouen! The rooftop terrasse is unbelievable with a nice view of the city. Chefchaouen was my favorite place during my 2-weeks trip in Morocco.

This has to be the worst place I've stayed in out of the 50 odd hostels in my life. It was so bad that me and my friend decided not to let the owner ruin our stay in Chefchaouen and we left without even staying for the night (even though we paid and they refused us even for our second... More

I really enjoyed our stay in Riad Baraka. It is an incredibly clean, well decorated hostel, where double twin rooms are somehow just about as cheap as larger dorm rooms (I think it was 11 euro vs 11.50 a night!). The staff is generally friendly, especially the young dudes who work around there. Breakfast is not included but it is... More

Nice place, good location and good price. When we got there they didn't have our reservation but managed to get us a private room when we had booked a dorm at no extra cost. The only inconvenience was the owner, who we found a bit rude and bfast isnt included.
