Liked: The location is quite good if you really want to experience the craziness of Marrakech. For us the street sellers were overwhelming so we weren't so happy to pass them everytime, but that is not hostel's problem, the place is just next to main square. The area downstairs is quite nice, as well as the roof terrace. Breakfast was also quite proper

Disliked: The guy unfortunately couldn't speak any english, so we tried our best in spanish, which is very poor from our side. I didn't expect that, so it was a huge problem, as I was hoping for plenty of advises from staff. I don't know if it was just for our stay, but roof terrace was closing at midnight, and we were asked to leave the downstairs lounge area at 1am. Another issue came when paying for the accomodation. He used rough exchange rate, which was like 10% more than the actual, but it still dropped my mood, as I expect the fair calculation at hostels - even in Morocco.There are no keys, neither for the room, nor for the main entrance, you have to knock everytime you go in. It was quite hot in the room too..

Liked: The plunge pool was amazing on hot days, and it was great to stay in a riad so close to the central square.

Disliked: The hostelkeeper was not overly helpful with tourist information.

Liked: Nice common area, good location.

Disliked: Staff were eager to blame us for their own mistake (they mixed up airport pickup times) and gave us an overpriced room (very hot, small and with a stinking toilet) the first night. We got a better room the next day.

Liked: the riad has much character. located in the centre of the medina which is very convenient and you are in the centre of local life. at the beginning you think it is lost in those numerous streets but it is quite easy to find it. you are provided with a map.the staff is very welcoming and helpful.

Disliked: i liked everything

Liked: Friendly staff, beautiful common area, and very secure. The location is perfect, too

Disliked: The noise proofing leaves something to be desired. If your room is on the first floor, it sounds like people talking in the common area are right next to you
