Problems started just arriving here, after not taking payment in Euros I was paying him the amount stated in hostelworld of what was left to pay in Dirhams but the owner would not accept it. He wanted to overcharge me for 2 nights and also the deposit ! After long arguing in signals (as the owner only wants to speak french or arabic) and 2 other girls having the same problem he took the money and just took me to a dorm I even did not choose. There are many nice places in Chaouen, I regret this.
Overall, it's a good location and pleasant stay at this hostel but not a wow factor. Value for money is great though considering the quality, facilities and services (which has a kitchen for use, not common in Morocco). The only problem arises with the challenges of language barriers and record keeping as you might be asked couple times whether you have paid or not!
Good hostel, nice staff. Bit dead but it's that time of the year, well located, nice terrace.

A very nice man runs the hostel but he has limited English
clean hostel and comfortable bed. no english spoken and you need to get in early to get a proper hot shower. nice simple breakfast and not too far from the square.
Great little place. Beds were not very comfortable but the hostel itself is great. View from the terrace is fantastic, shower upstairs was nice and warm, wifi worked very well and kitchen was fully equipped. Staff were alright, were a little strange with running away with our passports but in the end all was well. They also didn't seem to care that much about when guests were to pay. Close to the hill and a few minutes walk away from the Medina.
Close to the medina and a great view. Helpful staff. Really clean. Breakfast is bread, jam, and tea/coffee served on rooftop terrace..
Really relaxed hostel for a relaxed little city. Great location and staff are helpful when you ask for something. The only drawback was that there was only one shower with hot water for most of the time and there are no lockers but to be honest, no one is going to steal in a place like that. Really good price too, about €7 a night.
Situated at a quiet residential corner just a few minutes down from the medina square. The helpful owner is such a nice guy although he spoke only in French. This is one rare hostel where the owner personally serve us tea during breakfast! Wifi is available but not highlighted in website. Cosy and good place.
no lockers or room keys. in theory the room was locked when nobody was there, but i didn't see it happen the 2 days i was there. hot water ran out in the showers. breakfast costs extra.
Nice enough hostel, friendly staff with a central location. Can be a bit difficult to find when you arrive in chefchaouen.
We had an absolutely lovely stay at Aline hostel. The staff were all incredibly helpful and kind despite the language barrier. The whole environment of the hostel was incredibly relaxed, homely and welcoming. The roof terrace was a beautiful place to sit and the view of the mosque and the surrounding mountains was incredible. Such good value for money. Would recommend to anyone.
