    I do not like that i have to unclick the last sentence to avoid to end up on google search!!! @@@Would you like your name to appear on our website?@@@ and i do not like the exchange rate of hostelbookers. and honestly hostelworld getting more competitive.

    So annoying that you ask if it describes itself accurately without providing a link to the entry. Also that you cannot see all of a user's reviews, to see if they are someone you identify with or not. Please stop (especially South American) hostels from claiming they have a bar and/or a cafe when in fact they only have a fridge or nothing at all.

    Please stop hostels claiming to have a bar when in fact they only sell beer from a fridge. It seems really common in South America. The advantage of a bar is the atmosphere, not primarily the alcohol.

    You should let people search for specific facilities (e.g. washing machines) and also to filter reviews by more options (e.g. type of traveller).

    Whatever I put here, nothing ever improves. One should be able to search/order by specific rating category, and to filter reviews by type of guest (e.g. solo traveller, age, gender). One should also be able to search for any facility, e.g. washing machine, not just the supposedly 'popular' ones.

    Easy to use, need to get realistic photos from global backpackers, the place looks NOTHING like it actually is.

    The usual. Easy to find places, easy to read up about them, and easy to book them!

    I have never written a bad review before and my standards really aren't that high, but I really feel that people should be warned about this place. An absolute con. When we spoke to the receptionist about the restaurant she told us that we were European and should be used to paying this price for food. We left after the first night and found a hostel for 150 dirham a night

    No problems. It would be useful to be able to pay the full amount via hostelbookers online.

    I love the site. Most of the time I can get exactly what I want or what is the best option for me at the time. It is easy to use.

    disapponted that the deposit went up. we found hostel world in general had more options in colombia than hostel bookers

    Sometimes its a bit full (the offers pages), and easy to lost. A new UI would be good!

    Hostelbookers is very easy to use. Made my reservations with no hassles, and good to see other peoples recommendations.

    Very good! The website is easy to use, very simple & user friendly. I would either recommend hostel bookers or hostel world but I think you guys work together!

  • Lucy McNamara

    Fine no extra fees or booking charges anr room got booked. found out all info, apart from the nearest train station...would have been handy as i was coming from karol bagh and tuk tuk driver ripped me off, but hey ho whne you're feeling rough and sick you'll pay anything.


    08 Dec 2014

    It always gives me the best price. Maybe it's a bit less competitive that it's necessary to pay a certain percentage of the total price in advance though, I've been very content with HostelBookers.com since I stared using it.

  • Mehdi Zoutal

    I recommend this hostel to anyone who wants to be in the center of Marrakech, not paying much and enjoying travelling people from all around the world and really good staff!!! Do not hesitate and go ù

    it is so worthy to save money. even i tried to contact some hotels directly, but most of them more expensive than your site.

  • Walter Chung

    05 Dec 2014

    Really good, and easier to find places to stay. Just don't like how the deposit gets charged in multiple currencies, causing descrepencies.

  • Lorenz Gehrmann

    Me and my GF we stayed at the WLFT Hostel for 4 nights and we felt in love with the city and with the hostel itself. We have already been to so many hostels around the world, but this is definitely in our TOP3. Just from the beginning we felt so warmly welcomed and in good hands..a perfect start for a short holliday trip. At an awesome location you will get to know the city easily. Thank you very much Rita and Pedro for having us and see you guys soon. Greets from germany ;-)
