Really nice hostel, great roof terrace, breakfast to get you going, easy to find and close to the medina.
Everything's good. Expect for the shower that wasn't working properly.
Inviting friendly staff, delicious breakfast, beautiful secluded rooftop and comfy beds! A lot lot lot nicer than what you would expect for the price.

Second time staying here and it is as good as it ever was, thanks!
The hostel was empty and the beds are beautiful, the community bathrooms we got to ourselves. It's on the border of the medina, which can be good or bad. The son was extremely friendly, but as others said, it's hard communicating with the father. They take the key every time you leave the hostel, so they have to wait up for you on late arrival and we had to wake him up to leave early! We felt bad but it's fairly normal during travel. For $10/night, it's hard to complain.
A great Moroccan hostel experience overall. Clean, comfortable beds and blankets, above-average facilities (decently-equipped kitchen, three bathrooms with western-style toilets, good water pressure/heat). The host was friendly and accommodating, though he did not allow alcohol in the hostel (understandably) or for my engaged friends to share a room together (a bit harder to understand).
The bathrooms were extremely clean and the hot water was very good. There is a key to each dormitory that you leave with the front desk when you go out and the front door to the hostel is almost always locked. My friend was staying at a different hostel and they wouldn't even let him come inside for a visit so they definitely keep a decent level of security. Breakfast was just bad and butter with coffee but the WiFi worked really well and overall it's a good hostel for your money.
quiet location; yet not very far from the central square and the lovely river with its variety of small terraces is also closeby...good wifi reception and kitchen on terrace + small shops just outside... also friendly staff...
Nothing special but good standard hostel.
It's a small hostel with a pretty good vibe. The owner only speaks French and Arabic, and will charge you 80dh/night unless you challenge it.
Good hostel, well located, clean kitchen and friendly staff. Left luggage there during a few days while I went hiking without any problem!
The pricing online vs the pricing at the hostel is a bit different. Be expected to pay 80 dirhams for each night you're there instead of the remaining balance that is left on your account. We negotiated with him about it but he doesn't speak English very well so in the end it wasn't worth the battle. Overall it's a very enjoyable comfortable place to stay!
Good value for money, though the dorm room on the terrace gets loud due to people smoking right outside the door. However, this was the only problem I had with this hostel. The second floor was quite nice and quiet. The owner was very nice. The bathrooms were kept quite clean. Good place to crash for a night or two.
Compared to other hostels in Morocco this one was very clean. We felt safe and secure but there were no lockers provided. Very lovely people who ran the hostel, they booked a taxi and made sure we were up in time to catch it. They do not speak any english but then why should they, they are not the ones travelling. Definitely recommend this hostel though!
This hostel is really nice and the terrace has a view on all the mountain and the spanish mosque, it's so beautiful. Showers and beds are good. The kitchen is really nice and fully equipped. My only concern would be about the owner who tried to charge me the 15% that hostelworld takes when you book.
Very nice family run hostel. Rooms are comfortable and wifi works in them. The owner is kind and helped us getting a petit-taxi early in the morning. They also have a well-equiped kitchen for the guests, which opens right into the rooftop errasse. Beautiful view of the mountains up there!
Really nice, homey place. Good location for the medina, cascades and walks into the hills. Great kitchen and rooftop. Nice rooms and bathrooms and good hot water. Good WiFi. Nice staff with sufficient English.
the man in the reception is very nice and helpful; breakfest is good; even though it takes about 10mins to get to the medina but its still acceptable and convenient: i would really recommend it:
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.
