We stayed here on new years eve and it was a fantastic experience. The staff are so friendly both prior to and during our stay. We booked directly through the refuge and Hamid could not have been more helpful. The food was lovely and HUGE portions. There was a great atmosphere at the hut. Our bedroom was a dorm with... More

Our first experience of the refuge was a delicious hot mint tea that was handed to us as soon as we arrived which made us forget about a long hike in the cold. We stayed in the refuge for three days and really liked it. The rooms are nice, clean and spacious. The staff is really friendly and helpful. It... More

Make sure you are not a solo female traveler, or traveling with a group of women. I was part of Jamal's group, traveling solo, and had a tent outside rather than a bed inside. My leader told me it would be quieter outside because the dorms are so noisy. Well, a few minutes after lights out, the proprietor was screaming... More

On the plus side comfortable beds, good food and slick organisation, also some nice little outside areas to snooze in if you are quick. On the downside sharing a room with a bunch of strangers and very basic toilet facilities. We knew in advance what to expect so no surprises one night was enough for me.

This place is great for what it is as any experienced outdoors, alpinist etc... person will see. Considering everything is brought up by mule the food is very nice (breakfast is poor so bring some cereal bars), the staff are friendly though often rushed with groups arriving past 20h00 and leaving before 04h00 in Spring. Dorms are noisy, smell interesting... More

Wasn't expecting a great deal from this place and pretty much got what I expected. Crowded hot rooms where I didn't really get much sleep, but beds were actually quite comfortable. Was well over 100 people staying the night we were there...4 toilets (two normal, two long drop) 2 showers and 4 was basins...you can imagine it wasn't the cleanest... More

Clean and quite comfortable, with spacious living / dining rooms, and the log stoves giving reasonable heat and enjoyment. The dorms are okay if a bit crowded, but not damp even in February. Plenty of snacks and drinks for sale and decent varied food (though we had our own excellent cook). Even got phone signal. Showers hot and clean, washrooms... More

We stayed at Toubkal refuge two nights in order to hike up to the summit. The place is basic, yes, but then this is kind of what you expect from a mountain hut in the middle of a National Park. So this is what my review does, evaluate it on the basis of it being a mountain refuge, basic, and... More

Busy - dormitories are packed, sweaty and smelly. Showers are fairly grim but at least water was warm. Don't expect much sleep - between noisy late arrivals and people getting up any time from 3.30 to reach the summit by dawn, you won't get much rest for the long climb ahead. You stay there out of necessity but one night... More

Dont expect to much from the refuge, the beds are comfortable, you will share with another 10-15 ppl and you will sleep about 1 foot away from them. The toilets were clean, there is one sit down toilet the rest are squat type toilets. The showers were okay, you have to pay for a hot one. We didn't eat the... More
