What can be said about Waka Waka. It is comfortable and has a cool vibe. The rooftop is great. The breakfast is great and there is always tea on hand. Mehdi and Nawal really made the trip great. They are supper attentive and very fun. I would recommend this place to anyone.

it is not the type of place to call luxurious, but it was the best among all hostels where I stayed in Morocco, the atmosphere & friendly staff helps you befriend everyone there, travellers or staff members. clean rooms & bathrooms, yummy breakfast in the nearby cafe rouge, even maybe guitar nights on roof terrace.

We stayed at the hostel for three nights. They are very unorganized and could not even find our reservation! On top of that, when we came back home and we counted over 93 bed bug bites all over my body alone. My three other friends came back with bed bugs as well. You really get what you pay for.

The hostel staff is not very friendly and inattentive. The beds are small, and since the rooms are connected to common areas, it tends to get loud. The entire place smells like smoke, so beware if you are sensitive to the smell. As another reviewer mentioned, the bathrooms are dirty and always wet from the shower. You can find other... More

We stayed in Hostel Waka Waka for four nights and are so happy we chose this hostel. The hostel has loads of character and is a throughly enjoyable place to chill while you are exploring Marrakech. Abdelhamid and Nabil are excellent, funny entertaining, respectful hosts and are so helpful. Breakfast is always included. Definitely recommended.

I can only recommend this nice hostel where me and one of my friend spent 3 times 1-1 night. It has a cool atmosphere, the rooms and the bathroom are clean. At the last time they hadn't got any vacant bed but we could have slept on a couch for 4€ on the teracce .

This is an awesome little hostel. I've hosteled all over the world, and really, this little place is tops. The guys who run this place are so kind and attentive; they make the place a little refuge of home in crazy Marrakech. The place is comfortable, with lots of chill space, beautiful homey Moroccan decoration in a riad/courtyard-style place. They... More

Stayed a total of 4 nights in Waka Waka, and loved every minute! Beds were comfy and facilities were good, with towels given if you needed. Abdul was an incredible host, helping us with whatever we required! Would highly recommend- hostel has great social vibe and amazing rooftop area.

My friends and I stayed here for two nights and they were the worst two nights we have ever had. We've stayed in dozens of hostels across the world and this one is by far the worst. My friend got bit by bed bugs the first night and requested to switch rooms. Other people in the hostel were also bitten.... More

Waka waka is the perfect hostel. We arrived in Marrakech and our bags had been lost and Abdul was the biggest help, he was absolutely wonderful. The rooms are cosy and colourful and warm and the hostel is located in a prime location!!! Good breakfast too!
