Liked: Classical Moroccan style and decor. Spacious social areas. Very clean. Lovely terraces overlooking the souks of Marrakech. Great places on which to dine and soak up the sunshine. Buried in the souks and very close to Jmaa all fna. Felt safe as a single female traveller, although the alleyways were a bit spooky late at night.

Disliked: Not as cosy or friendly as some hostels. Attempted to call the hostel to request someone to meet/direct me to the hostel but the number given did not reply.

Liked: Felt very very secure, it was nice to be able to come back here after an exhausting day at the market and just be calm. Also, there's a ton to do at the hostel during the day! We did the cooking class (SO fun, made a tajin), had henna done, and had a hammam close by.

Disliked: We only had one safe locker for 6 people, so we were basically only able to lock up wallets and passports. Not a big deal, though, as it was a really safe hostel.

Liked: Excellent hostel! Very nice Riad design, that feels more like a hotel, but with hostel rooms instead of hotel rooms. Getting there is a bit tricky through the allyways, but a lot of fun in my opinion going through all the passages and archways! Very clean, very nice, and super friendly staff. I will def stay again! Oh, and very good breakfast - better than the other hostels I stayed at, who all offer free breakfasts.

Disliked: Too many common areas make it difficult to socialize and meet new people, since everyone is spreadout. Not a big issue, however, this really is a fantastic riad/hostel.

Liked: Really good location, just out of one corner of the main square. Take a copy of the directions though or you have no hope of finding it. Friendly staff spoke English, nice rooms/beds. Wifi and computers to use for free. Awesome roof terrace to chill out and watch the sunset over Marrakesh.

Disliked: Too many different places to chill out, so not as easy to meet people and chat. But great hostel, definitely recommend.

Liked: spacious living areas - all in Maroc decor with a mystic peaceful moroccan atmosphere surpasses all other hostel I have stayed at. you certainly feel comfortable and safe. Good breakfast, friendly place to relax and chill out when you are exhausted from the hustle of busy life of the Medina.

Disliked: It has a spacious open kitchen for us to cook but only one disappointment, no electric kettle to heat up water, and very little cutlery/crockery.mugs/cups etc., to prepare food. Also a microwave would be a bonus for quick heating. There is a varied menu in the terrace resturant which is very adequate for eating in, but sometimes its nice to have opportunity to cook something quietly by yourself. (specially if you are feeling unwell and want your own comfort food).

Liked: The pool, big hostel, good breakfast, big room with bunk beds that has a higher top bunk, so if you are on the bottom bunk you can sit up. Great location close to the main square. The pool is a godsend to relax in after walking for a few hours. Big shower, shower head isn't fixed to the wall so you have to hold it. Comfy bedding. Lots of lovely relaxing areas in the hostel. Kitchen area to cook in too! Would definitely recommend to stay at this hostel in Marrakesh!

Disliked: The room smelt a bit musty, no wifi in rooms. Could be very ho tin the rooms in August with no air con, only 2 fans. No drinking. Hostel should organise some communal things to meet people, hard to interact, no vibe there.

Liked: Never stayed at a hostel with a swimming pool before, so that was awesome! Rooms were a decent size and looked over the pool. Great location - a bit easy to find. Be aware the cafe mentioned in the questions had closed. Would have been nice if that info had been updated. Breakfast was fine.

Disliked: Some staff were a little grumpy. I heard people in other rooms moan about being eaten alive by bed bugs but I had no problems and stayed here a couple of times. The lockers didn't lock, it looked like they had all been broken.

Liked: Aircon in the rooms! Life saver after a long day out in the heat! Swimming pool, roof terrace with bar and plenty of space to chill out. Nice sized rooms with decent beds and private bathroom. Plenty of spaces throughout the hostel to chill out by yourself if wanted. Well priced.

Disliked: This is no dig at the hostel, as they give good instructions, but it's hard to find first time, especially when it's dark and your tired. But locals will help out.. For a price. I got charged 50 dirham. No issue when your led straight to the door and you realise it would have taken you all night to find it haha! We found the following day it is not that hard to get to from the main square. Only a few mins walk.
