“Social, home away from home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I stayed here with my mate for like four nights. It has such a great communal feel.The location is great, close to the main square but tucked away down a nice side street. There is an unlimited supply of free tea and delicious bread. The staff will bend over backwards to accommodate you here. One night we arrived back at 4am from clubbing and they let us in without the smallest hint of annoyance. They also cleaned up my vom when I was sick and cared for me. Definitely worth a visit and a stay if you want a home away from home in Marrakech, if you want to meet people. Ask for Mohammed he is a mad dog.

This Riad is tucked into a small side street only 1 minute walk from the main plaza Jamaa el Fna. The guys that run the place are fantastic and super helpful. They arranged taxis, showed us where to eat (walking us to the restaurant), and always had tea ready for us whenever we wanted.

Breakfast was included and the price was very reasonable.

Plus the small pet turtles that live on the roof were a huge hit with my kids. We stayed a total of 4 nights spread out on two occasions and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a hostal in the Medina of Marrakech.

I stayed at the Marrakesh Rose Hostel for 6 nights. It was probably the best hostel i have ever stayed in. The people are as friendly as it can get and helped me with everything i needed. the breakfast is good and the rooms are very clean. but really the most important was the time we spend together drinking tea and chatting with the staff and the other guests. all in all I had a great stay!!!

Stayed here twice during a week. We returned because it had a relaxed atmosphere. Luke and colleagues were excellent hosts and supplied all we needed. Centrally located near the medina and excellent value for money. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone.

Luke, bro!!! Keep up the good 'work'. We will definitely return!!

Greetz,
