Mohamed was very helpful in recommending places to eat at a god price . He also helped us arrange to get a grand taxi to Tangier whith was much appreciated. The only thing that could use some improvement is the cleanliness of the showers and bathrooms. However overall a very good experiance. Great value for money.

What a fantastic spot with a gorgeous view from the rooftop terrace. The owner, Mohammed Ali, was incredibly helpful organizing taxis for us for an out of town day trip and to our ferry in Tanger. Cozy rooms, tasty food and smiling faces...I highly recommend!

Mohamed was the greatest host! He brought us tea throughout the day, showed us a great place to eat and took us to the bus station. There was heating in the rooms and the rooftop view was beautiful. One of the greatest stays!

We had an amazing time at this hostel. Mohammed Ali and his family were so hospitable and lovely. Would come back in a heartbeat! Thank you for an amazing time!

Mohammed (the hostel owner) was an excellent host. He made good suggestions for restaurants and cafes, and even walked us to one when we arrived late at night on the first day. He also arranged bus tickets to Tanger and drove us to the bus station. Although the rooms were small (lacked storage space), the general atmosphere was still very cozy. I just hope they have consistent hot shower. In the three days that we spent there, the hot shower only worked once (lasting only 5 minutes).

Fantastic location, best rooftop terrace in town. You can chill out all day and watch the mountains, river, Spanish Mosque and daily life go by Often Mohamed Ali and his friends play beautiful music. He makes sure his guests enjoy their stay. He also prepares yummy meals and tea So if you're looking for a comfortable place to relax after the craziness of Fes or Marrakesh or simply just want to chill out, I recommend treating yourself to a private room with a mountain view for a few days

One of the best stays we've ever had! To say the least, you will be hard pressed to find a nice, clean, comfortable place with a great staff as well. The owner was kind and generous but also very attentive - on many counts would share extra food that was brought from his family. We stayed in Chefchaouen for 4 nights and the location was great to get around anywhere in town or to simply watch the children play. Highly recommend staying here - you will not be disappointed!

The roof-top is nice with a great view and the owner really takes care that you feel welcome. Nearby is a parking (20dh/24h) so if you are with a car/bike it is a good option.

Wow - how much did we love our stay at Casa el Rio? There's not enough space to write it all, but staying here is the best decision you can make. Can't say enough wonderful things about the hostel owner, Muhammed Ali. He was a generous host from start to finish: upon arrival offered us to join him and his father for Friday couscous (from his grandma!), and was supremely helpful. We ended up staying an extra day because of how much we loved it here! Be sure to visit Akchour and wander the medina.

The only complaint we have regarding our mid-October stay at Casa del Rio is that our rooms (both of them) were VERY COLD. There was no additional bedding in the room, only a sheet and thin blanket.

We were so completely thrilled with our stay at casa del rio!! We all felt as if we were staying at a fancy hotel rather than a hostel. The setting, atmosphere and amenities were amazing. Our host Muhamed was incredibly warm and inviting and knowledgeable. He chaperoned us to 2 incredible meals in the city and helped us get to our bus. I would reccommend this hostel with flying colors!!

By far my favourite place during my stay in Morocco. The place is very clean and the staff are amazing. Mohamed Ali is the best host and will go out of his way to do anything including organising bus tickets etc.. Jamal at the frony desk is also extremely helpful and very friendly. It has the best roof terrace in town! Would recommend this place to anyone! 10/10

Casa del Rio is at the corner of the medina. My girlfriend got sick after we arrived and had to stay in the room for days. The staff took realy good care of us,brought us tea, food, helped with getting medication. There is no real hostel atmosphere, we were almost alone for 1 or 2 nights, but we can really recommend it.

Casa del Rio was in a very good location with excellent views from the terrace. The only negative thing was that the extra beds in our rooms were hard as rocks.
