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.

Great location and atmosphere. However no one speaks english and there arent any lockers.
Very difficult to find but more than likely a helpful local will take you. Nice blokes who run it. Far from bus stop, as far as you can get.
This hostel is in one of the prettier parts of an already beautiful city. Bathrooms were a bit run down, but definitely a value for money hoatel.
It's managed by an elderly fellow who is the most polite and relaxed fellow around. His son took over for a few days, and is kind of a stoner. Generally good people. No, they don't speak English at all. The place is very clean; it's a very homey place. The other people staying there were generally tolerable. There is one shower on the first floor that works, and one on the top floor with only cold water. 3 working bathrooms. Definitely worth it for the price. Will go back in the future.

I really loved this place though I was only there for a night. It's located right next to the medina and waterfall, which is great. And it has a really wonderful atmosphere. I met a bunch of great people there. I highly recommend it.
Staff don't speak English so it was hard to communicate but they are still friendly. The hostel is quiet close to the medina. Best to get a taxi (1.5€) when you arrive in Chefchouan as it is a fair walk from bus station and all up hill.
Cheap, well-located, clean and with very helpful staff. The hostel manager even went to buy some bread for me in the evening when he figured out I'd be leaving too early for breakfast the next day!
I had a really good stay here and met some great people. I can only speak english so there was a language barrier but it was no problem. The staff(family) are absolutely great and help with as best they can. I totally recommend staying here. The view of the rif mountains are gorgeous and there is a lovely corner to chill in the night time.
Someone please kill the neighbours rooster
pros: close to the medina, roof terrace, met nice travelers cons: staff doesn't speak English, You have to pay extra 2 DH per breakfast (so it's not included), bread was dry, butter already yellow :/ no lockers, one evening to few water for taking a shower and cold. washing opportunity - but 30 DH for a small bag and washed by hand from staff. tiny rooms and they don't change the sheets for the next guests many ants are running around only wifi
Booking Aline hostel was a wonderful decision. Amid all the chaos that Morocco can bring down on you, Aline was a calm, peaceful, and secure oasis, even during Ramadan. The staff is friendly, honest, and responsible, and make a point of being courteous. The hostel is on a relatively "wide" street five minutes from the central plaza and, once you know where it is, can be found easily. Clean and efficient facilities. A decent breakfast provided on the terrace with a great view of the mountains.
There were no lockers, but security turned out to be totally fine. The entire place was completely chill, even though the hostel was nearly full, so I never thought that anyone would steal anything I left in the room. Also, instead of lockers, the staff lock up the bedrooms during the day to prevent theft.
