If stay here again. It had a pool which is perfect for the Marrakech heat! And a roof too terrace, beer which is hard to find and location is central. Good place to relax in the midst of Moroccan mania
While the hostel and facilities were really nice, it is a little big and feels more like a hotel than a hostel. This makes it not conductive to meeting people on a solo travel trip - otherwise was good.
The hostel is fine, but not great. The Barna Equity Point is much better, but then that one is expensive. The beds were large and comfortable, with huge ceelings in the rooms, but the bathroom was so tiny! That said, there was great water pressure and hot water in the shower. The breakfast had lots to offer, but eveything was of poor quality. Do not buy the hostel water under any circumstance, it is more than twice the price of anywhere else in Morocco, even the desert village we went to!
Really nice hostel, more like a hotel with a lovely pool to relax by, which is exactly what you need after a day in sweaty marrakech! Rooms are clean and comfy with en-suites!
Mainly enjoyed our stay, however they do have BED BUGS my friend is covered in bites. We stayed in room 107. Very relaxing and tranquil atmosphere though and the free breaky is good. We did the two night, three day desert tour which was amazing. The driving is all worth to for the night sleeping under the stars in the Sahara. However the staff at the hostel don't give you much info about where you go etc. I would advise to take snacks and toilet paper.

Great hostel. Staff left my dorm room open after doing a check for beds though. Left me concerned about my belongings. Has a pool though, air con in some rooms and friendly vibe.
Beautiful hostel. I chose it for the swimming pool and I didn't regret my choice. Not your normal hostel but there's is a good atmosphere as well as being set in a beautiful building.
One of the best hostel Ive ever stayed at!

Great hostel and for sure I will stay there again. Nice staff and clean rooms. It is big. The only minus is that there are allways people in frony of the door of the hostel. Hanging out there.
Beautiful, large hostel hidden in the heart of Marrakech. This is probably best for those who don't mind a bit of noise and an atmosphere, particularly around the pool area but there are additional relaxing quarters and a lovely roof terrace. Finding Equity Point is probably almost impossible without a guide to take you there at first but the staff were really good at arranging this for us. The riad is also well signposted within the souqs which was a massive help! Clean rooms too.

BED BUGS This hostel gave me and my friends bed bugs. They have travelled home with me and now I have to get someone out to kill them. £136 to kill them makes this hostel a very painful and expensive one.
The organisation at lunch time at the roof was quite poor as we were waiting to order our lunch and, after waiting for 30 minutes we had to leave because nobody was paying atention to us
I spent two nights in two different rooms in this hostel. First night was in 4 female dormitory bedroom. The room was at the same floor as swimming pool and it was the worst night I've ever spent in hostel! It was so loudly and stuffy, so I could not sleep almost the whole night long. Also this room is so tiny so it's hard to even place your baggage at the floor. The second night was in 6 female dormitory, the room was located at the 2d floor and this night (and room) was much better.
Overall good. Great location. Nice facilities layout. Staff was helpful. We stayed on two separate stays. Room first stay was large and cooly conditioned. Room the second stay was tiny and hot as heck.
It's located in a horrible place. There will be people harassing you to the you. Once there extort you for money. When I got to the hostel figured I'd be safe but they encouraged thugs to come in and get their money. Also if you ask for directions they send you with guys who want money. Staff is unfriendly and unwilling to help with things. Wouldn't recommend it for girls traveling or anyone alone.
Pool was amazing. Beds were very comfortable and very clean. The only downside was that people would put their towel on a chair next to the pool when they weren't there and wouldn't be there all day so no on else could use the chairs. Also there wasn't one general area for people to chat it was more like a rabbit warren. Pool was a plus- and breakfast!
Absolutely lovely. Washing machine, pool, great beds, kitchen, nice and helpful staff, good location, friendly people. What else do you need? Oh and a bar : )
Overall very good- but there was not one space for people to hangout apart from at the pool and people in the morning would reserve a lounger and not even be there for a lot of the day. Was very frustrating for me as I was at the pool for part of the day but didn't have anywhere to sit because peoples towels were on the only available chairs and they were no where to be seen! Other than that, good place!
A bit hard to find but hundreds of guides so you will be fine. Had a mix up with the rooms an they sorted it an even upgraded us straight away. Great stay.
