Liked: Only minutes away from Jemaa El-Fnaa , this riad provides anyone tired by the excitement of the main square with a safe haven of tranquility, pleasure and much needed silence interrupted only by the birds' chirrup and the calls for prayers. The rooftop offers comfy chillout area where one can catch a glimpse of the beautiful Atlas mountain range on the horizon and get a tan at the same time. The ground area of the riad serves as a cool hang out place with a mini swimming pool and palm and orange trees at its centre. The rooms are clean and the staff extremly helpful. The price for a week's stay hardly breaks a bank. It is a combination of all these factors; amazing value for money, relaxing atmosphere, friendly staff and central location; that make me keep coming back every time the magic of Marrakech calls my heart.

Disliked: Jaroslava left no negative feedback.

Liked: The hostel is in a great location

Disliked: There is absolutely no sign for the riad out the front, so it is impossible to find if you don't know where you are going. I organised a hostel pick up at the airport as our flight came in at 12am however the hostel never picked us up. The room we were in had no fan making it unbearable to sleep in!

Liked: This hostel was fantastic. Such a great vibe and the staff were amazing. Location was 5 minute walk from the square and the walk was safe and vibrant. The pool was a great relief after some very hot days and all very relaxed. We organised day trips through reception and they were great value for money! The room had 6 beds and all the travellers were friendly and considerate. Breakfast always on time and when you wanted it and advise from staff was extreemly helpful. I would recommend this hostel to anyone who wants a relaxed scene, but still has the cultural vibe of Morocco! 5/5

Disliked: Kimberly left no negative feedback.

Liked: Perfect location for exploring the medina. Nice roof terrasse. Pool but we did not use it since the weather was not as nice (pump works and looks clean). All of us (3 adults and 2 children fitted well into 5 beds room).

Disliked: Finding dogs poo everywhere athough staff tries to remove it at least once a day. Water was leaking onto bathroom floor.

Liked: Once you find the location of the hostel, it's very close to the medina and in a safe area.

Disliked: As much as I love animals and dogs in particular. I don't think the hostel owners should have dogs if they are incapable of potty training them. The dogs went to the bathroom wherever they pleased, including your bed.
