Friendly staff, clean, comfortable, very central. Rooms were tidy and clean. Staff helped us plan our days and made sure we were comfortable with where were were going. Would really recommend for student groups as there was a great atmosphere there and so affordable.

I'm currently wide awake on their couch trying to sleep after getting bitten by bed bugs. I am pretty sure that the beds are rarely changed as they reek of BO and cigarette smoke. The guys sit downstairs and chain smoke inside so if you have respiratory problems it is not the greatest place to be. Go somewhere else and...

The sink in the bathroom on the second floor was flooded 5 out of 7 days. The rooms were fine, however, very dark, so I recommend...

Hot tea soon arrived and delicious cake, the guy could obviously tell we needed cheering up! My bag was carried upstairs for me into a spacious...

Such a great place - the atmosphere and character of the place is great. The staff really make this hostel incredible. Hamid, a guy who worked at the hostel was incredible. He was super welcoming, friendly and really helpful for everyday "Marrakech" advice and made me feel like the hostel was like a home. 10/10 would recommend!
