What an awesome hostel in the medina of Essaouira. The city is one of the best of Morocco in my opinion and this hostel is so nice. Lovely people working here I just felt good all day long, chilling in the top of the hostel and speaking with people from all around the world. Definitivly a place to meet new...

This is a beautiful hostel - the location is great and the price was awesome for us (Like 60Dh). The owner is crazy (mostly in a good way) and his cooking is awesome. The communal meals in the evening were delicious and really added to the atmosphere. The only thing worth mentioning is that there was a lot of smoking...

Really nice staff and enjoyed the meals in the evening! We loved the highest rooftop of Essaouira and would like to chill there one time again. Moreover we liked the conversations with the people working there.

I booked a 6...

Brilliant location, in the middle of the medina. We found it by chance just walking from the bus stop straight down the main road. It's definitely one of the cheapest hostels in Essaouira (50DH when we visited). There's a great atmosphere there, the staff are incredibly welcoming and friendly, and there is always music there. Slightly musty beds, but overall...

Awesome place to stay while in Essaouira, best staff ever with many wise words about Morocco and everything really. Constant music being played on bongo's, guitar etc. The location is awesome in an area a little more local with tons of fresh fruit etc being sold everyday. Many thanks to the team here for an awesome 4 days in Essaouira....

Highly recommend staying at the woodstock. The owners were EXTREMELY helpful in every aspect. The place has a cozy comfortable vibe and we always felt welcome! The facilities were impeccable, breakfast was great and with a great location it's a must for travellers seeking a real taste of Morocco. Really can't say enough good things about this place. Definitely will...
