Staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. Loved the free breakfast in the morning but otherwise the hostel was quite boring. Outside of the terrace, there wasn't anything else to do. My room had a window facing the street but it was so noisy outside, you couldn't really have it open.
It was really nice staying at the Riad, I had a wonderful experience thanks to the staff that were very friendly and helpful. I learned a lot from them about the culture and about Ramadan and they spent time with me and helped me have a wonderful time. The Riad ia located in a nice area, very central and accesible and I was surprised of the cleanliness of the showers. The rooms are very small, though and it is very hot in the summer, as there is not air conditioning, just a ventilator.
This place was relatively cheap, but even for the low price I wouldn't recommend it. The room was small with very little ventilation (no AC or ceiling fan). During the day it was like being in a hot box. The common areas were also small and hot, and it felt awkward relaxing there. In a place as crazy as Marrakech it's important that you can chill out at your hotel, and we didn't find that at Amour Riad at all.

I really liked this hostel. :) The staff was very friendly. The locations is convenient, but hard to find the first time without a guide.
I really enjoyed our stay & would recommend it to anyone. The staff were friendly & helpful, free breakfast was perfect for the start of the day! Good location, central but quiet.

The Amour de Riad hostel has a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. The property is very authentically Moroccan and colourfully decorated. Rooms are cozy but comfortable. There is also a terrace on the roof which allows great views of the Medina. The staff at the hostel are quite possibly some of the nicest people in Marrakech; they're very genuine and helpful. They also go above and beyond to make your experience personalised, and will help in anyway they can. Great riad overall, I'll be back!
Excellent location, friendly and helpful staff, thoroughly recommendable

This riad was the cheapest option in Marrakech and I can testify that it is a great value for money. I paid £10 for a single room per night. The riad is very close to Jamma all Fna square, although tucked away at the end of one of the narow alleys in the Medina. I had no problems finding it though. Just read directions given and look at the map beforehand. The riad is small, fairly clean, but quiet basic. Ideal for unpretentious traveller. My single room was very small though.
Excelent localization, Staff was very helpful with all we needed, always. Good breakfast. Smoking was allowed in comon area, in the middle of the living room! That bothered me..
Really dangerous, situated in a small road in Medina, where pushers will be annoying you and ringing to the bell of the hostel if you don t do what they say. Small and cold ( in the winter) rooms, it costs less than the others just because it offers less. I Wanted to chenge it after twenty minutes. Please don't go there: spend two euros more but check in in another place. Prons? Just the huge breakfast...
I definately recomend this hostel, it is down a quiet street right in the middle of the medina. Lovely roof top, staff, and lobby. not a loud party place, i got a good nights sleep.
A great little place to get away from the madness of the main square. A very tranquil and intimate place. I will go again.
Amazing value for your money and super-friendly staff in this lovely riad in great location! I couldn't wish for anything else.
담요에서 냄새가 너무나서 덮지도못하고 밤엔 너무추워서 덜덜떨면서잤어요 침대옆 벽지도 다 떨어져서 너덜너덜.. 호스텔내에서 주인이 담배도피고 아주 최악이었어요
Everything at amour de riad was amazing ! That staff there are so friendly and unbelievably helpful. They even found me a towel so that I wouldn´t be cold after leaving the public baths. The location is great, just minutes from all the excitement, and the hostel can set you up with some awesome tours. I spent a night in the desert and it was incredible. I totally reccommend you stay at amour de riad when you go to Morocco ! -jayc

Very cold in the morning and night. Hussain the host kindly gave us extra blankets when we asked which helped. However, whenever we were sitting in the lounge area, it was very cold, and also quite dimly lit. Very close to Jemaa el Fna which was helpful.
The Medina can be quite overwhelming but the host was very gracious. Would recommend.
Traveling solo as a female I had some concerns regarding my trip to Marrakesch. The hostel was just the perfect choice for me, Hasna. Hussain and Meriam made me feel at home and took great care of me. I just loved my breakfast in the morning and the clean and safe environment they provided. I was always greated with a smile and can not just say enough food things about this place. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
I strongly recommend this place! I felt so good during my stay at Amour di Riad! Very clean, comfortable beds, hot showers and a tasty breakfast. Houcine (the host) Is such a great and helpful person! Thank you so much Houcine with staff!
