“Good mountain refuge”
Reviewed December 19, 2011

Just spent a week at Les Mouflons for mountaineering and climbing.

Had a good stay and did not suffer from cold - all those flocking to the other refuge definitely missed out! Thanks to two new wood burners we stayed nice and toasty each night, which was good, as the outside temperatures plummeted to more than -8. The burners were also very handy with drying kit each evening. The dormitory was a steady +3 degrees each night, but plenty of blankets (provided) solved that.

Otherwise, enjoyed good food from the staff, who were also friendly and helpful and the place was kept clean and tidy.

warm and welcoming with a big wood stove and hot mint tea upon arrival late in nov. from cold and windy conditions. i negotiated for a bed with blankets, dinner and breakfast for 150dh. might be cheaper at the refuge toubkal, but this place was great. the hosts are very nice and have crampons and climbing gear for hire if you need them. i did the summit without them as it has just dumped about a metre of snow in the days previous. well worth the walk.

Room Tip: it was low season so i had a room to myself.

My wife and I stayed here in mid-October for one night as part of our ascent to Jeb Toubkal. After extensive research (was not sure which of the two refuges to pick) we opted for Les Mouflons given the availability of private bed rooms which I thought would provide a quieter sleeping environment. Most mountain guides prefer to stay at the Neltner hut but it only offers communal sleeping rooms.

The main dining area is very comfortable and warm. The food we had for dinner was excellent and the quantities beyond huge. The room itself was fine. Definitely cold and humid, but I can understand that it's impossible to heat rooms in a hut at such altitude. Luckily our warm sleeping bags allowed us to sleep without issues.

The biggest disappointment about the Les Mouflons refuge was how poorly they treated our mountain guide. On the morning of the ascent we woke up at 4am to have breakfast at 4:30 before our departure. Our guide started having breakfast with us but after a few minutes he was kicked out. This happened very quickly and quietly and I didn't understand what had happened in order to intervene. Our guide had breakfast at the Neltner hut and later on in the day he clarified what had happened, to our amazement. For a reason we didn't understand, they didn't want guides to have breakfast with their clients in the main dining room which was very disappointing given the purpose of the hut, the altitude and the weather.

Bottom line is that our stay there was fine but where extremely disappointed with the treatment our guide received. This seems to be a common theme and the reason most guides prefer to stay with their clients at the Neltner hut.

If you are planning on climbing Toubkal or even just want to walk up the refuge and stay and go back down again I would definitely recommend staying here. It is so fabulous to arrive after the long walk up, its wonderful to have a shower and walk around in the provided flip-flops. The meal is good, although always vegetarian I think because it helps you to acclimatise better. It can be a bit cold, but just ask for some blankets and you'll be fine. they are very helpful, although it you are not used to the altitude and not the fittest, ignore their advice on how long it will take you to get to the top!

We had heard mixed reviews of the refuges, saying they were overcrowded and noisy at night. Not 'aux Mouflons' which was very quiet. Clean and comfortable, alpine refuge standard. Good food and service. More expensive than the other refuges but was much, much, much quieter. Pay for shower

We stayed there the night of June 19th. We had stayed the previous night at the Annexe les Mouflons in the village of Imlil which is also recommendable.
Facilities are basic, consisting mostly of dormitories but we booked a private twin bedded room which was OK. There are no bedsheets though but only blankets.
The food was good overall and service very courteous. No electricity available before 6:30am which is not very convenient when you get up at 5:30 to start the ascent at 6:00am!

Room Tip: Either option is private room or dormitary.
