The hostel is in a perfect location, in a small alley just off one of the 2 big streets of Essaouira medina. The new Moroccan guy at the reception is one of the kindest guys I've ever met from a hostel staff.. always smiling and with a positive attitude, ready to help for anything. The main living room next to the reception is cosy but the other facilities are quite simple and sometimes poor (especially bathrooms). Good value for money anyway!
The place was very dirty,almost everybody staying there got bitten by bed bugs. I even met people in marrakesh afterwards who stayed at that hostel and also got bed bug bites.
