Thomas Lindsay thinks…

"Lovely pension right next to the main square. Staff are helpful with any requests / question. The terrace upstairs offers a great place to relax and look over the town."

Liked: Great location in the heart of the medina in the beautiful town of Chefchouen .Excellent value for money, nice bedroom for the price, and very clean shared toilet/shower room. We stayed 2 nights here, would have loved to have stayed 1 more night and explored the area a little more, Chef is great, would love to return, very friendly, cheap, no hassle- this was brill for 2 female travellers, allthough this was our 1st stop in Marocco, so it only got worse! No major problems though.

Disliked: Bad internet connection when we were there, allthough no problem.

Liked: the staff were so helpful when i needed to change places for one night. also the location is really great and its very easy to find. very chilled rooftop terrace and great place to meet other travelers. you can book ctm buses from here and buy drinks and breakfast is good to purchase. value for money is also great. best place to stay in chef i think.

Disliked: the showers arent great as they're in with the toilets and sort of not exactly like a proper shower. also the door wouldnt close on one of the toilets. internet pretty slow and didnt always work.

Liked: very well placed and really good value for money - very relaxed and rooms a good size (i stayed in the 8 bed dorm)

Disliked: the shower on the first floor was not great - but the ones on the second floor and on the roof were good and usually free. the staff weren't that approachable, it seemed to be run by a group of young guys who sat around watching films all day - hard to tell who was working or not!

Liked: Great location and cheap. good place to meet people. Staff friendly and welcoming and the hostel was mostly clean.

Disliked: Bathrooms. Never had toilet pazper and there was a hole in the wall so anyone could look in. The door did not lock properly and get opening itself while you were in there. The first floor bathroom/shower is very short and I couldnt stand up in the shower: I am five seven. Wifi worked intermittently. There was a knife fight downstairs and a group of us were stuck in the hostel. Kitchen was terrible and always dirty.

Liked: This property is perfect for the price we payed. The best thing about it, it's the location, because it's right in the center of the Medina. Also, the atmosphere was very cool; full of nice young travelers looking forward to having a good relaxing time in the beautiful and peaceful city of Chefchaouen.

Disliked: The rooms are small and the bathrooms/showers are a bit uncomfortable. But still, it's ok for the price we payed. I really didn't mind this, but it's an importan thing to keep in mind for other travelers.

Liked: This hostel has a fantastic location in the most picturesque medina in Morocco. It is unbelievable value for money if you are looking to save a dime as well. If you are in the mood for a sociable hostel than you will find it easy to meet people here.

Disliked: Unfortunately the owners allow smoking anywhere inside the hostel (and smoke themselves indoors). As a result the downstairs rooms (and pretty much everywhere else) which i was unfortunate to have to stay in one night, had the putrid smell of cigarette smoke and if I was not offered another room I would certainly have left. The downstairs rooms also have no ventilation and border the common room, and i would not recommend staying here if you are put in these rooms. Hot water was also non-existent.
