Probably the best customer service we've ever had anywhere. Hamid was helpful and accommodating. Rooms are nice, clean, and warm (we visited in winter). Breakfast was good and location was convenient.

Our Riad Boujloud (in Fes - I've reviewed it on Tripadvisor) highly recommended that we stay at Chez Youssef for our home base during our trek into the Sahara & we could not have been more pleased. Our overnight bus arrived before dawn and Hamid was there in the dark, cold morning waiting to retrieve us & our bags. Once... More

We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely litte pension with only 4 rooms. Hamid and his wife Aisha are perfect guest hosts. Aisha cooked for us very delicious food in the evening and also a tasty breakfast was served in the patio. The rooms and comun areas are comfortable, quiet and spotless clean. Chez Youssef is only a 10... More

I visited Merzouga with my boyfriend for two days, first night at chez youssef and second night at desert camp. Chez Youssef is an amazing place, super clean, great decoration taste, comfortable, well equipped (AC in bedroom is mandatory considering how hot it can get in merzouga). But what really makes the difference is Hamid's kindness. He took care of... More

During my Morocco motorbike solo tour I stay for one day "chez" Youssef. What a lovely place... with an excellent atmosphere, tasty meals and a nice terrace to watch the moonlight and chat with the other guests. Hamid is the perfect host and his guest house is, probably, one of the best places to stay in Morocco (the location is... More

Chez Yousef was one of the very best places we stayed during our month in Morocco. Weary from a long bus ride from Marrakesh, lovely host Hamid welcomed us at the station and helped with our bags. On arrival we had a fantastic meal waiting for us. The food throughout our stay was ample and delicious – in particular the... More

This small (4 bedroom) guesthouse is the perfect place to stay in Merzouga. Hamid the manager was attentive and anticipating my every need. From inviting me to park my motorcycle in the courtyard, collecting bottled water for me on his moped, to ensuring his wife prepared an excellent vegetarian meal for my night out in the desert. Although there is... More

We arrived very early in the morning, but still our host Hamid was very kind and welcoming. The rooms are simple, but compared to Moroccan standards very clean and nicely arranged! We felt extremely comfortable staying at Chez Youssef. We also booked an overnight trip to the desert dunes with the help of our host (we can strongly recommend this;... More
