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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
