Liked: The location is easy to find and is only 10 minute walk from the town centre, the staff were friendly and helpful. The terrace was lovely, with sun beds for bathing and tables and chairs to drink mint tea in the sun. The rooms were clean, comfortable and the showers were hot and refreshing. This hostel is everything it says and more! I definitely would recommend this place to anyone! Best stay in morocco!

Disliked: Nothing!

Liked: It was very tranquil and comfortable. The decor was simple but really nicely done and the rooms are large and airy. Our host, Mahmood was friendly, helpful and respectful and I would gladly recommend staying at Dar Al Hamra to others.

Disliked: The only thing I would recommend is to find the property before sunset as it could be difficult to find in the dark (as are many of the accommodations in and around the Medina area).

Liked: A truly exceptional place to stay in terms of value for money and location. Even locals, who know how to strike a deal, were suprised at the overnight cost at Dar Al Hamra. Book now before the price doubles to something in-line with what others are charging on the same street. Amazing place; we'll be back asap.

Liked: It was a gorgeous old riad, very traditional, with an extremely friendly staff and a beautiful central courtyard and terrace. Good location a slight bit away from the madness in Djemma el Fna, but still inside the walls.

Disliked: Typical of Moroccan properties, you could hear everything going on in the rest of the house from the room, so it could be hard to sleep in when others are having breakfast. A little tricky to find, but there were signs.

Liked: Dar Al Hamra is perfect for backpackers, solo traveller or couples looking for a cheap room in the Medina. The staff is very friendly and are there 24 hours to answer questions. The room was clean and tidy, it's well worth the price!

Disliked: As others reviews mentioned, this hostel is incredibly quiet to the point where it's boring (I was the only guest in the hostal on that day).

Liked: The hostess is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very good with a lot of choice. There is always a cup of minttea ready if you please.

Disliked: The place is very quite except for the mosque near the riad which has a very loud minaret call at sunset. The place might be a bit hard to find. Please make sure you'll ask a taxidriver to bring you to the Bab Dukala Mosque in the corner you will find a port into a derb, take this derb and then take the first derb to the right, the riad is at the end of the derb.

Liked: We really enjoyed our stay at Dar Al Hamra. The staff were all very helpful and friendly, and our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The location was great in that it was a short walk to the main square, but far enough away that you could have peace and quiet. Breakfast served on the terrace was a great way to start the day.

Liked: Quite and tranquil place to stay. With a proper Moroccan feel while still being very comfortable and very clean. Amazing breakfast each morning (pancakes, coffee, freshly squeezed OJ). Nice private room, big shower. Good location, just a short walk from the main souks and tucked down an alley.

Disliked: Nothing, but if you are planning on meeting people then its not the best place.
