Clean, inviting, homely feel. A home away from home. We stayed in a 5* hotel (apparently, sarcastic bbm face)! We left because the service was AWFUL! I have never stayed in a hostel before but after spending money on a hotel my budget was tight. Based on my stay at Hostel Riad Mama Marrakech, I have been converted, breakfast was...

I chose the Riad Mama based on the gorgeous pictures of the hostel, taken in the common rooms, and from just outside the hostel. And while it was pretty as a picture, what really made my experience were the people. The staff was super friendly and helpful (and spoke english!) but there were many other guests traveling alone and with...

The people are what make this place; Crystal and Youssef made us feel really welcome, looked after me when I was ill and made excellent suggestions for trips and places to visit. The building is quirky and individual and for somewhere that's only been open since August its very comfortable and clean.. The staff were polite and always happy to...

When I arrived in Marrakech, I meant to stay only four days, but had such an amazing time (in many ways because of this hostel) I ended up staying a week. The hostel is beautiful, clean, and comfortable with lots of common space. It was easy to meet other guests to travel or spend the day with. The owners are...

I travelled to this hostel along with two other friends on a two week trip to Morocco. After quite a journey from Paris, we felt immediately welcomed and put at ease by the owners. Our rooms were always clean, our breakfasts were tasty, filling, and we never waited long to eat. The location of the hostel is perfect for running...

As soon as we arrived, the owners offered us overpriced excursions and offered to get us a taxi to the airport the day we were leaving (which was double the price, probably due to their commission being added to the service). Is it a hostel or agency? We had short time to use the kitchen, which is tiny. Breakfast`s included,...

We can also help you set up the adventure of your life with day and night trips to other cities… Go to the beach for the day in Essaouira, take a hike on the trails and waterfalls in the mountains of Ourika Valley or even go camel riding and spend some time in the Sahara… After a few days of adventure, you may want to relax, come back to Mama Marrakech and sense that this hostel is your home away from home. We desire that you to feel that this experience is one you want to tell your friends about or feel safe enough to come back alone, because you are a part of our extended family!

“All the rooms are super comfortable and wonderfully different: Go for the 4bed (Bob Marley room) Ground floor if you don't mind the noise. 1st floor for peace and quiet The terrace rooms are the best during the hot season. (the night sky is amazing)”
