We spent four nights at Riad Mama Marrakech and it was by far the best hostel we stayed in on our journey through Spain, Portugal and Morocco. We were immediately welcomed with mint tea and Crystal told as all about the city and the hostel. Later we met Yusuf, Rachid and the other staff who were all incredibly warm, friendly and helpful. We spent much time talking to them and hanging out with the other guests in the main area, or the comfortable rooftop terrace. The whole place immediately felt like home, and everyone, both guests, owners and staff became like family.
Everything was clean and fresh, the breakfast was delicious, the atmosphere was personal, and we are all looking forward to coming back when we stop through Morocco again!
Just be aware that if you go to on a tour to the high dunes in the desert, it is about 10 hours away, and much of the time will be spent in the van. We failed to grasp just how far away it was and how windy the roads are. But there is plenty of amazing stuff to do in Marrakech and Mama's is the perfect place to stay and relax after the bustle of the city!
