All I can say is good things about this hostel, and as I read some of the awful reviews I start to believe that people have this hostel mixed up with another as I think there may be a few with the same theme or run by the same people. I arrived easily enough as the directions were simple but good, they also have a video on YouTube of how to get there from the main square so I knew exactly where to go from when I stepped foot off the bus from the airport. They welcomed me in and I sat down and they brought me mint tea and some snacks while I chatted to some other people. I showed him my reservation email and it was all sorted. I was in a 4 bed dorm which was right next to the common room but it was very good. I might have got a last minute deal as I only paid about €1.60 each for my first two nights.
They showed me around, there is a middle floor and then a terrace balcony with couch/beds and chairs and tables plus a room and a shower and toilet. They have 4 tortoises that live on the roof and just walk around, cute and friendly little things.
The beds are a little hard at times but mine was springy so it was fine, I would suggest bringing a pillow or rolling up some clothes as a pillow as they are quite big and hard but it's not too much of a issue.
There are women that come in everyday and clean the rooms, make the beds, empty the rubbish and I think they keep up a good standard. They have a bird call doorbell so that you can come back at any time of the night and it won't wake anyone else up and the are all super friendly and will go out of their way to help you.
They also have great Internet, better than my hostel in Madrid. It reaches the whole hostel, even good enough to Skype on the roof. Also the breakfast is very good, a selection of breads, pancakes and pastries and they wil make you mint tea any time of the day if you want.
Would highly recommend, a well rounded quality hostel with Moroccan flair!
