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: 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.

Liked: Great location near the main square in the Medina. Friendly staff, very welcoming. Comfortable beds, nice roof terrace to relax on. Very affordable. This is great value for your money and I would definitely recommend staying here if you visit Chefchaouen. Internet connection is good (but there is none in the rooms upstairs).

Disliked: Not enough showers, and that's about it. Oh and also, the description on how to get there is very basic and definitely not helpful - could be improved to be of better assistance to travellers.

Liked: Excellent service, great place to meet people and a fantastic camp to explore chefchaeoun from.

Disliked: The property was rather far away from the CTM bus station and it is an uphill climb to reach the hostel. Me and my spouse had to drag two luggages and a backpack uphill for almost 30mins before we reached the hostel. Definitely not within walking distance with all that load.

Customer review

09 September 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: When we checked out and wanted to pay the bill, the owner (?) of the pension wanted to charge us more than what they were supposed to. He claimed that the 10% deposit we made in advance through this website was not considered part of the total amount, since "the website kept the 10% of the bill". We refused this, and showed him the right balance, and then he agreed to charge us the right amount (but he still had the nerve to round up the number, and wouldn't give us the exact change -he later did-). We are not picky in general with hostels, but this is to bare in mind. Shows a bad attitude towards guests (no trust)... Also had to pay for toilet paper! Apart from this, it is well located and it's clean. Cheap place for budget travellers!

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: The terrace was nice to hang out and enjoy the sunset, free internet was a big positive, location in the medina was very nice and the staff very friendly and helpful. It was also handy that you could buy cold water and soda down in reception.

Disliked: The bathrooms could be better stocked with toilet paper and also the bathrooms floors could be mopped a bit more regularly.

Liked: La location è in una posizione ottima, le camere sono abbastanza pulite, ma estremamente spartane. Se si vuole incontrare gente è perfetto, il via vai è continuo.

Disliked: Le camere sono tutte rigorosamente senza bagno, ci sono 2 o3 servizi su 3 piani ai quali devono accedere tutte le stanze, nonchè tutti coloro che dormono sulla terrazza!!e non sono pochi. Le stanze sono economiche, ma non abbastanza per quello che offrono. Poi uscire dalla stanza appena sveglio e trovare dietro la porta gente che fuma a tutte le ore, non è il massimo. Il responsabile dell'albergo è gentile ma permaloso....

Liked: Great location. Friendly staff. Loads of cool people to meet there. Generally a very laid back cool place that I would definitely return to.

Disliked: I put some laundry in and it came back without missing a pair of socks. My advice is to confirm the number of items with the person you leave it with.

Liked: The location is perfect, right in the centre of the medina and less than a minute's walk from the main square. The staff are all helpful and friendly - we were greeted like family when we arrived. Rooms and shared facilities are very clean. There's a nice roof terrace where you can sit out with a view over the city. Free internet and wi-fi is also very useful.

Disliked: Could be tricky to find in the maze of the medina, but pretty much anyone will be happy to help you!

Liked: The atmosphere was great, the atmosphere of Chefchaouen is amazing and it's really captured in this hostel. The colours are fantastic and there's a roof terrace where you can relax and watch the sunset over the roofs of Chefchaouen, while listening to the evening call to prayer. It has a lot of character, I especially liked the tiny shower room you have to bend over to be in :) It's a lovely hostel, and so cheap! great value for money compared to anywhere in europe!

Disliked: The staff had allowed these men to come in and wait for us, who we presumed were other staff, who then tried to give us a tour of the town and ended up pushing drugs on us. It made me question the security of the hostel that they let anyone just wander in.

Liked: Excellent location (once you can actually locate the thing... the directions need to be a little more specific!). Perfect terrace and only a moments walk away from the centre "square".The free internet and cable TV are a nice addition to the super cheap rooms (we got the private for 160dh a night between us) and the staff go out of their way to accommodate travellers.Top place not meet people, but hard to really "party" in Morocco at any time-enjoy the views and hiking!
