I showed up and there was no power, no running water, and an extremely rude woman who was presumably the proprietor. She promptly ignored me while I stood waiting to check in after which she informed me that they had no record of my reservation. The place was surrounded by auto repair shops and other industrial shops rendering it extremely sketchy at night (when I arrived). In sum, literally none of the advertised features, nor any of the basics for hostel-style accommodation were met.

tiny tiny rooms with 2 or more bunk beds,no privacy at all. Our bathroom was theoretically ok but very smelly, room downstairs in the courtyard at night freezing cold (November). The woman who prepares the simple but sufficient breakfast is very kind. Roof terrace could be more comfy and they could wash the cushions more often. We did have BEDBUGS (and other travellers as well, so be prepared). I guess you get what you pay for although cleanliness should not be un-cared for, no matter how cheap.
Weirdest hostel experience ever. The guy who owns the place is a crazy drunk. Who yells at guests. He was friendly toward me and one other friend but his attitude to alot of the other guests was very poor. The room had bedbugs..... and they kept trying to tell us we hadnt paid. The lady who works there is kinda cute and always singing but speaks no english so if your french isnt up to par you could have communication issues.
Very good hostel for the price however there were issues as other reviews have mentioned, mainly about the manager. On arrival he tried to charge 210 euros instead of 21 - when we argued that he added an extra 0, he smiled and said that english people were clever. This could have been excused as 'banter' but later when i requested a receipt for my payment, i entered a 20 minute argument as the infamous drunk staff manager said that i was rude to ask for one. WARNING = be prepared for a battle
It was nice to stay in this hostel. They need to clean up a little more but its still a good choice. A good relation between price and quality.
The hostel announces itself by saying that all rooms have air-conditioning. We booked two nights: - The first night, although we booked a 4-bed-room (we were 4 friends), we were put in a 5-bed room with no air-conditioner unit. That night we couldn't sleep almost anything. - The second night we were put in the room we were supposed to have the first night, and the things changed. It had a nice bathroom and also a nice air-conditioning machine. The staff is friendly but can't speak english.
In a country like Morocco where it is 45 degrees air condition is needed. But although we were promised air condition all we got was a fan on the floor not reaching up to the top bunk where I was sleeping. The staff can only speak french and arabic so forget communication. Every night outside our room the staff and their friend smoked hookah and had loud music. But the riyadh was beautiful with a nice roof terrace.
It was a 25 minute walk from the Madina - yes we did get breakfast however, it was only bread. The owener spoke next to no English. Also, we paid for our stay on the 2nd night and when we went to leave the owners demanded that we paid again - when we refused as we had already paid they became really aggressive.
The hostel was pleasant enough. Staff spoke very little English. Be wary when paying as if you pay early they will try and re-charge you and can get quite aggressive when doing do so. Trip prices offered are also inflated so look on Internet as well to make sure you get the best price. Breakfast is included however this was just bread and mint tea so not great.

Horrible. As we arrived, they did not even change the bed linen so on beds there were hair and dust. The rooms are incredibly small and there is no conditioned air. We found a huge cockroach in our toilet, that was so small that, sitting on the wc, your feet could touch the door.There was no water in the early morning and during the day it came out just from the shower, not from the sink. No keys so someone got things stolen. Poor breakfast, no dishes for everyone. They tried to be paid more.

Nice Place to stay for some days in marrakesh. Nice staff, friendly people and a great roof top. Everything was fine for only 3,30 € per night.
I was a bit worried about staying at such a cheap place but actually it was much better than we expected, the value for money is amazing. Good location and nice place to hang out, breakfast is good and the staff are nice. Definitely recommend this place for anyone wanting to save a few dollars yet still be comfortable and enjoy Marrakech,
The staff is so friendly and the homemade tajine was the best!! Salaam is super nice and we loved him!
