“Nice experience”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

We chose the hostel to start our city-trip to Marrakech and so we stayed there the first two nights and also got an airport-transfer arranged because we arrived late in the evening.
Everything worked fine as arranged by mail before.
The hostel was nice but a bit cold in winter without a real rooth. The atmosphere was good, even though some parts of the staff were sometimes more interested in a cat that in travellers ;) But we were on holiday, so no big deal about the time.
Rooms and beds were cleaned well daily and the breakfast was great (and selfmade during day). They also offered good advice about restaurants etc. (even though I don't understand why travellers are told not to eat on Djemaa el-Fna at night).
All in all I can recommend staying there!

I enjoyed my time with Ali at Marrakech Rouge. He's super cool and was always eager to help and show everyone a good time. The place was always clean and my bed was very comfortable. The place was a little hard to navigate, especially at night, because of the poor lighting. Otherwise an awesome place for 95 dirham a night. Also well located, very close to Jemaa el Fna.

I spent four nights in this very cool structure - a moroccan riad transformed into the most colourful hostel ever - and I just loved it.
The position is great - not the easiest to find the first time, but a few minutes to the main square of Marrakech (Djemaa el Fna), in the very center of the medina.
The atmosphere is chilled-out and friendly and the staff is so nice and welcoming that it takes them just a few hours to make you feel at home.
Breakfast, moroccan tea and shisha included.
Definitely an amazing accomodation in an amazing city.

Highly recommended. RMR is one of the best hostels we have stayed at. Although the facilities (bathrooms, rooms) are fairly basic, the atmosphere is excellent, & the endless supply of free sheesha & tea, free breakfasts, & all the common areas/sun terrace makes it the ideal place to meet people. The guys working there are incredibly friendly and helpful (although not super fast). V useful location 5min walk from the main square, and the hostel is an ideal base for the different excursions they put on.We were a bit chilly in our room & the common area in the evening, but it was midwinter after all.

We stayed here as part of a charity hitch hike to Morocco from England. Upon arriving we were very disappointed to find that the private room we had booked was detached from the main Riad area where everyone else was. This made it difficult to interact and get talking to other travellers.

More than this, it was clear that the room we were in was normally someone elses (eg a member of staffs) bedroom- the bed was unmade, there were childrens drawings in drawers and other personal items such as womens clothes (including a bra) in various places throughout the room. I found this very strange and a severe let down having read other reviews and originally really looking forward to staying here. Also on one evening we saw A MOUSE scuttling around the room.

After we brought our concerns to the staff they seemed rather apathetic towards the whole situation. In general they were helpful in other areas eg showing you how to get around on a map. The only thing they did was remove some clothes from the room. I honestly think the area we were put was staff quarters as there were middle

aged local people wandering around, kids laughing, running around and watching TV.

The main hostel area was colourful and really nice. Put a downside on the final leg of our trip to be in the staff quarter area, removed from other hostel goers, which was not helped by the attitude of the staff towards our concerns. The option of private rooms should be removed as they are not incorporated into the rest of the hostel experience and are very obviously used by non-hoste goers the majority of the time.

Room Tip: Dont book a private room, if you do dont expect what you see online.

I've stayed here with a friend in december '13 for three nights. The staff was amazing just like the atmosphere and other guests. The hostel/guesthouse is designed for meeting and hanging out with other travellers.

“What can I say about this incredible place...Lots. Marrakech is a crazy place and once you get to the hostel the excitement is washed away in a see of pure luxury and relaxation. Thousands places to lie and chill and chat with other travellers about the incredible thins to see do, eat and buy in the red city. You can ask for tea or coffee through out the day and they are accompanied by the most incredible biscuits. Rooms and fab. Terrace is great for sun. Make sure you try the shower on Terrace!”
