Great hostel! I had a great time here, very clean, good staff. The staff were really helpful with local knowledge and loads of fun to hang out with at the end of the day. Nice tasty home cooked food and a highlight of the stay was the roof terrace that has a bar and is a great spot to hang out with new people. Would recommend.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Atlantic. The service is excellent, the staff are great and the location is perfect. The hostel itself is also nice, especially the terrace. Not only was Môhamêd (manager) very accommodating with my requests but he also went above the call of duty. I celebrated my birthday at the hostel and was invited by him to dinner that evening and was even given a birthday cake! It was certainly a birthday to remember so thank you Môhamêd and the team at Atlantic!

Had a wonderful stay here--the rooms are very clean, the staff are kind and welcoming, and there's a great rooftop , it s a great place for relaxing, meeting other fellow travellers and eating dinner in the evening that you can sign up for a very reasonable price.

I was so happy to find Atlantic Hostel in Essaouria. The staff were immediately welcoming and I felt safe staying here as a female traveling on my own. The building is beautiful and has a great atmosphere for meeting new people. Relaxing on the roof terrace was one of the highlights of my time at Atlantic. The terrace offers panoramic views of Essaouria and a nice place to eat breakfast and get some sun before heading out for the day. I stayed in the 14 bedroom dorm and found it very clean.

I planned on staying in Essaouira for 2 nights but ended up staying in the Atlantic in total for arond 2 weeks as I even came back to say goodbye before I left Morocco. The hostel vibes are great, chill and relaxed. If you open up to the people in the hostel you'll find some good friends to hang out with in each and single one of them. Make sure to try Yassine's dinner and join or listen to Yahya's and Kahrim's music if ou have a chance. Cheers also to Mohammed, thanks to all of you guys

This Hostel is one of a kind. The atmosphere is really what you look for as a backpacker. I was suppose to stay 2 days and I finally stayed 5. The facilities are great : wifi works well, showers are clean, beds are comfortable and the cook (Yassine) is the best I have met in Morocco. At night after a nice supper with everybody, there is live music on the terrace (awesome panoramic view of Essaouira). This is the perfect stay to meet people, to have a laugh, to do yoga, to write or just to relax!

The Atlantic Hostel has a great atmosphere and a great staff. The dinners are affordable and delicious, and I would recommend them. I met a lot of great people at this hostel hanging out on the beautiful and spacious terrace. The only issue is cleanliness. This hostel is rather large, so I can understand how it would be hard to clean, but the rooms have a very funky smell in them. Ditto with the downstairs hangout room. Despite this I would still recommend this hostel given the atmosphere.

This hostel is just everything you could expect from a hostel but probably twice better! From my experience, the staff was amazing, the atmosphere was incredible on the rooftop terrace and the people I met were just so chill. I even booked 3 extra nights. Definitely a must in whole Morroco.
