Liked: The staff were extremely helpful and it's a good place to meet other travellers. The Riad is also a great place to unwind and the common areas (especially the terrace) are very cosy and inviting.

Disliked: While I understand the need for order and I can also imagine that younger backpackers might be a bit hard to deal with sometimes, the amount of rules painted and posted all over the Riad muted some of the magic of the place. Not the most romantic place if you're travelling as a couple either.

Liked: Unfortunately we were sick the day we stayed at Riad Baraka. Anne was very kind to us and gave us some info about he pharmacy and a fan for our room. This Riad is spotlessly clean and they also serve (for an additional fee) a great brekkie.

Disliked: Only one tiny toilet for those without en suite facilities, other than the toilet inside the front door.

Liked: We booked the double ensuite and sent email to re-confirm before the trip. but upon arrival, they said the room was occupied and changed to a double room share bathroom for us with a small discount. It's fine. the riad is well maintained, great roof area. though the share toilet is very tiny. and hot shower only available before 10pm. Good location. Welcome staff~

Disliked: no email response when sending re-confirmation, and our booked room was occupied by others.

Liked: The location, the terraces, the room, the comfortable bed and linen and blankets, the clean bathrooms. The staff is cool.

Disliked: The shortage of toilet paper and hot showers only from 7am to 10 pm. I'd like to have a hot shower before going to bed and after coming back at night. No kitchen facilities and no places for hanging the clothes to dry. More like a hotel room than a hostel.
