“Lovely building, wonderful people, excellent value.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

The people here really make the riad. Asis and Ibrahim are extremely friendly and welcoming, speak fantastic English and French which can be hard to find in some places. There are also 2 lovely women who work here who can't do enough for you. For the price, the hospitality and the quality of the building I really cannot recommend this place highly enough.

Room Tip: The rooms that you are offered vary widely. Riad Massin catered to solo travellers very well with 4...

Yes I would stay there again, it's better than a hostel/hotel!!! It has great character and a honest feel that I have never experienced staying abroad. Riad Massin has a 'home away from home feeling' that is really welcoming in such a crazy city like Marrakech. Perfect location if coming and going via train or bus and its still close enough to all the sights and everything else in the Medina. I found it first go using Google maps in conjunction with the trip advisor map. Also the AC was so good I needed a blanket in August!!! Thoroughly recommend this as a great place to stay in Marrakech!!!

Once inside this Hotel/Hostel, you'll realize what Marrakech is all about. I was welcomed with a hot cup of tea, a map of the city, and lots of smiles. The Riad itself is a genuine moroccan building, and you'll loose some time just admiring it from the inside. Just beware of strangers offering to guide you there: they'll want tips!
The Riad provide tours to the Saara (must-do!).
Near the Souk and Marrakech's main atractions.

On january 23rd I visited Hostel Massin in Marrakech for the 2nd time. The staff was so very friendly and made me feel at home again, just as I experienced it last year.
The staff is absolutely what makes this hostel stand out. Brahim and Aziz are excellent hosts and will help you out if you have any questions or guide you in to the right directions.
The two Ghadiza's are also so friendly and make sure to go the traditional Hammam with them. Quite an experience!
I would recommand this hostel to solo travellers, group travellers or couples. Since the staff is super friendly and it is well worth the money that you spend.
I will definately go back the next time I am in Marrakech.
