I was transferred from riad amlal as they were overbooked! Dont know how that happened as I booked it a month ago... i was then transferred a couple of doors away to riad jakoura. i showed the owner how much i had left to pay after the deposit to hostelbookers. he seemed a little hesitant but gave me the keys to my room and showed me around. the room was ok. only issue was the the standing water in the shower which i didnt mention as it didnt bother me much, i have seen worse. (what do you expect for budget hostels?) i was out during the day and only came back around 3pm for a little rest then i would head back out until 9pm. i ate outside so there wouldnt be any extra charges from the riad. everything was fine until it was time to pay up. i showed the owner the printout again of how much i owed. he ignored that and gave me his calculation of how much he thinks i owed. i told him that im not paying that and to go and sort it out with riad amlal. as he wasnt getting anywhere he told me that i had to pay tax. which i have never heard of!... feeling intimidated by that time i just payed up, said bye and walked out!!!!
its a nice place and in the heart of marrakesh and would of recommended it to anyone but the feeling of being intimidated is not a good feeling. so on that basis i wouldnt recommend it!!!
funny thing was that i was going to leave a lot more tip than what i ended up paying at the end!!
