Customer review

31 August 2009

Liked: From my review the hostel seems to be very nice. Indeed the atmosphere is nice, cuz there are always many kids staying there that hang out in the pool, the best part of the hostel, and on the terrace. The location is also good, once you know how to find it by bribing the local kids. Despite all this my stay was terrible! The place is dirty well above imagination. There is dog-shit in the dorms and that's not even the worse part... I was to tired to realise the first night but the place is full of bed bugs! The second night i didn't manage to sleep because of that. The staff helped me with some medication and made me change room, but not luck! Bed bugs there again! I would not recommend this place... not at all!

Liked: Nice property but unfortunately it doesn't look taken care of. The lady running the place seems too keen at all times to make a profit but not keen as well to offer a good service. One shower and one toilet for the whole place is a bit shocking but we managed. I got bitten by bed bugs, the marks appeared the morning I left the place and felt too embarrassed to mention it. Someone told me the bed bugs were from the old wooden furniture?? One nice thing is the plunge pool, also ... I was able to sleep on the rooftop terrace and that was really great! And the rest of the staff were quite nice although they didn't speak that much English either French. Many thanks!

13 August 2009 Rosannah would recommend this property

Liked: excellent location, plunge pool was AMAZING and definitely needed in the summer heat. The main downside was the staff. The owner, we found to be extremely unhelpful, unwelcoming, grumpy and we got the impression that she didn't want us there at all. As long as she stayed out of the way it was ok! other than that, very pleasant riad.

12 July 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The only thing bad about the riad is to find it for the first time. It is really close from the main Plaza but it is hidden and with no indications. Ask the children around the plaza they will help you but also ask so for some money. :)The riad is really good to relax. has a huge terrace/balcony and a little poll. The staff is very friendly and will help in everything you need.

Liked: Very helpful staff. The staff work very hard to accomodate you.Nice atmosphere and ideal location right in the middle of the Medina.But very difficult to find. There seems to be a law in Morocco against nameplates on the door. This would help finding the place. The medina is very confusing when you first arrive.
