I like their rooftop terrace, great view of the mountains and the valley. Close to everything.
Wouldn't recommend this hostel. There was a girl that was covered in bed bug bites and the staff refused to acknowledge this. They tried to put me in the bed that she got the bites in, and thankfully she told me. I did not want to stay here after learning this. I paid up front for 2 nights and decided to leave chaouen after the first night. I asked the man if it was possible to get a refund, and he was INCREDIBLY rude to me and refused. I would have been less annoyed if he was nice about it.
This hostel is insanely good value for money. A bit of a walk from the 'bus station' (they just drop you off on a main road) which is all uphill and can be tough with a heavy rucksack in the heat, but a spacious rooftop and good atmosphere makes up for it. You can't get by on English with the staff unfortunately, and breakfast is pretty basic, but man at this price I wasn't complaining!
Very friendly and helpful staff, the roof terrace was a lovely place to spend the evening with views of the Spanish mosque.
Great place -- I had a wonderful time! My only suggestion would be to add hooks for towels in the rooms and some form of security (ie lockers).
Stayed for 2 nights in March'15. Simple and laidback hostel, with great staff, as Yassin at the reception. I felt really welcomed there, with good info for all my questions, had a good time and great conversations with the staff and other travellers. Hot showers all day, breakfast incluided and plenty of blankets available for Chechaouen's cool nights. Nice rooftop terrace with awesome views and well equipped kitchen. Totally recomended
Great value for money but (walking) directions to the hostel could have been clearer.

Perfectly located, extremely close to the heart of the medina! Staff very friendly and polite, but language barriers make it very difficult to get directions or advice. Fresh and clean sheets, but cleanliness standards very basic in the bathrooms. The place is FREEZING! They give you heaps of blankets though. However, if you don't want to spend your day and night wearing your jacket, better go in the summer. Quite good value for money, if you book online, safe and welcoming :)
The staff is very nice and friendly! Breakfast is simple and good and served on the terrace which offers a great view of the mountains and town. Showers are always hot and the hostel is kept clean. I would recommend to stay here!

Beautiful hostel and amazing staff!
The hostel is a great place to come and meet other travellers and smoke and relax with brilliant views of the mountains.
Aline is overall a great hostel in which to stay. The staff is laid-back but still manage the hostel in a top-notch manner. There's a full kitchen and the terrace is the best I've seen with a view that looks up to the Spanish church.
wonderful place to stay. would recommend it. felt like we had the place to ourselves until we came to breakfast and suddenly there were people staying there! we were probably the annoying guests, with a small party in the lobby our first night with the guys running the place.
Perfect place to travel in winter time too Staff is superfriendly
Good! Not in the medina but very close but that means you can get a taxi to the door. Friendly staff, wifi was excellent, there was always hot water and the security was good. It's quite cold but they have heaps of blankets for you.
Nice location-not in the medina but close enough, easy to find. The owner can't speak English but nice. The owner's son could speak English anyway:) The breakfast was basic but value for the money. The facilities were old but clean. Nice view from the roof rounge. The one thing I didn't like was...it was so cold at night during my stay(mid of Nov) so I should have used my sleeping bag together.
loved it, all the decoration super pretty, the staff very nice, and the facilities worked great. just consider its an uphill walk , but worth it :)
aline seemed to have some poor reviews around the time i was here but i enjoyed my stay and saw nothing wrong (cleanliness or otherwise). Would stay here again. One thing that I would say is needed is getting connected with some of the tour groups in town like most hostels. Thus having the ability to help arrange excursions. I only got a poor black and white map from the front desk. Didn't matter though since i had my own guide book.
Nice and cosy hostel with a great staff! We enjoyed our stay at Chefchaouen in this hostel. We recommand!
Lovely place with a great roof top view in beautiful Chefchaouen. Staff are very friendly, and breakfast is great. No lockers but dorm rooms lock with key you can leave at reception. Very quiet while I was there, but town is not so touristy anyway.
