“Amazing hostel, a travellers ideal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

This place is just simply amazing. The hospitality and friendly staff are second to none. Nothing was too much trouble, organising 10 very tired people into comfy rooms and allowing us to get ourselves sorted very late at night was a real help. Great local info, free flowing tea, comfy and clean all round. Great mix of people staying who were all really friendly and organising trips together really helped to make a memorable holiday. Thanks and 5 stars.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are good but if going during a hot spell, avoid roof rooms as there is no air con...

This is a must visit in Marokko, i was never been in such a great hostel like that, the atmosphere was amazing. The prices are about 5-15 Euros for a night, you also got the option to stay in a tent at the roof top for like 6 euros and watch the beautiful medina of marrakech by night. When I first came in and Ali (kinda like the Manager) were welcoming me, i felt like beeing at home.. he's one of the coolest guys i've ever met. Extreme friendly staff and most of the things are included in the price like maroccean tea or breakfast. And you can smoke shisha where ever you want.. sadly the only not included stuff. The hostel is quite huge, you won't think of it when u pass the small entrance, but that is a typical Riad. On the top you have chillout areas and relaxing couches. The staff is flexibel with your bookings and everything is taken easy so you can enjoy your stay. In conclusion i would say, that this is one of the best hostels i've ever been to.. seriously. good prices, a lot of different people and cultures from all over the world, perfekt atmosphere, a lot of excursion offers and everything can be booked from there or the staff does it for you. so if you thinking of travelling to marrakech, you should definitely stay in this hostel, its worth it.
Thanks for the nice memories and i hope to see you guys again ;)

Room Tip: use the tent on the roof its the cheapest and the nicest place if you want to see marrakech by night...

I doubt my trip to Marrakech would have been so enjoyable if I had stayed somewhere other than this hostel. The staff were the main reason why this trip was so wonderful since they were very friendly and helpful from the moment we walked in till leaving. The atmosphere within the hostel was very relaxed and cozy, with all the free tea and shisha provided. The location is prime as its walking distance from most of the touristic locations including Jemaa El Fna square as well as the museum. We booked a private room with two beds for 5 nights and paid nearly $100. Also worth noting is the great value for money as well as the free breakfast. If I ever go back to Marrakech, this is the place I'll be booking. Recommended to all.

This Hostel was the perfect choice. Nice atmospherer with verry homely chilling place in the Riad or on the roof. It is directly in the old Medina, just about 5 walk minutes away from the big plaza. Malek and Jamal are verry kind hosts, gave us the perfekt travel tips. Tee and breakfast is included and taste gread.
If i come back to Marrakech i will deffinately stay here and i suggest everyone to do same

We had a great time - 4 of us stayed in the double ensuite rooms for 5 days.

The staff were fantastic and the hostel was a perfect haven in the hustle of central Marrakech - the roof terrace and indoor lounge were wonderful spaces for relaxing. Breakfast was one of the best I've had at hostels.

Downsides were that the enclosed nature meant our rooms were permanently damp from the ensuites and we could hear everything going on, particularly the doorbell through the night, which kept waking us up. Also one of the rooms was impossible to lock from the inside, though the hostel felt so safe that this wasn't really an issue.

Would recommend it!

Just returned from a trip to Marrakech and had a very good experience in this hostel. We had a double room with en suite which was good. My only critiicism would be that the room was a bit damp and musty, but you take this with a pinch of salt as you're staying in a traditional Riad, therefore ventilation will always be an issue.

Friendly staff, AMAZING breakfasts and walking distance to all the great things about this city. I highly recommend this hostel.

I stayed in this charming riad for three nights and had an amazing experience. Seriously, I had no idea where I was going to end up, after a week hitchhiking from the UK... Marrakech, a lovely city, but most of all, the managers and the employees of this accommodation make a huge difference. Very helpful, generous, friendly and always willing to help!!!
Great breakfast, very clean, hot water ( and toilet paper, rare to find in Morocco).
Slept in the tent on the roof top. It was raining the first night but felt like I HAD to, such an amazing view and very cosy.
Nice shishas, amazing decoration... GREAT VALUE for money!Wow, i'm gonna miss it!

Room Tip: Have a real maroccan experience and sleep on the roof TOPPP!
