I stayed at Marrakech Rouge as part of a 15 day volunteering scheme helping local children.
The hostel itself is tucked away about 5 minutes from the square and 5 minutes in the opposite direction to Bahia Palace.
I shared a 6 birth room with other volunteers, the beds are quite comfy and are changed on a regular basis by the maid. The hostel toilets, showers and floors are cleaned everyday around 11am. Breakfast is served 6:45 am till 10:30am daily, the breakfast is lovely and is an added bonus as not all places offer breakfast.
The staff are helpful and will book excursions, cabs and provide maps if you wish to walk to your destination. The staff are sociable and make you feel welcomed as soon as you walk in the door.
You can ask for mint tea and shisha at no additional cost, smoking is also permitted in the building but people normally smoke on the roof. You can sleep on the roof to escape the heat at night but may be woken by the call to prayer at 5am in the morning (It is nice to listen to it), although I never stayed on the roof others said it was the best sleep they had.
If you are travelling on a budget and enjoy social interaction, this is the place for you.
Thanks for the stay Karim and co.
