Great hostel near the big square but you do have to navigate through a few shady looking alleys to get to the hostel and the pushy fake guides awaite your arrival at the beginning. The rooms are nice and the facilities are very good. The hostel has a nice restaurant and a terrace on the roof. One hostel worker was kind of a pain in the ass and kept sending groups away to their room because of noise while others didn't mind.

Other than the rooms being a bit chilly at night (our heater did not work), our stay at Equity Point was fantastic. Great breakfast, lots of places to sit and relax, close proximity to many of the markets and cafes, and safe, We used the hostel to book a ride to the airport and a day trip to Essaouira and were satisfied. Staff was helpful and always available. Convenient that the hostel accepts both Euro and Dirham for payments!

i stayed there for 2 nights, the toilets are in the room and the doors don't close properly so you hear everything! They failed to pick me up from the airport and had to make my own way then tried to over charge me. Unfortunately a friend had a problem just out the front of the hostel where a man tried to sexually assualt and rob her, altough this was nothing to do with the hostel the manager was not interested in informing other travellers of the risk and showed no remorse.

This hostel is really nice and has a nice rooftop and swimming pool. On the other hand, I didn't really like the atmosphere. For me, this hostel felt more like a hotel instead of of typical hostel. Although, if you are looking for a nice place to stay and hang out, this hostel wont disappoint you! It is quite hard to find, but once you know the directions it's ok. There are small signs, but you can always ask someone for help (and pay them a small amount of money afterwards)

This hostel is amazingly clean, good location near Jamaa el Fna, could be hard to find, but if you follow directions you will manage to get there. Staff is really friendly, room is nice. Breakfast is simple, but its included in the low price.

The street corridor leading to the hostel is always crowded with some opportunists, must pay attention. I would not recommend to go alone at night to this hostel. Everything else was OK and the buildings interior is very nice.

very beautiful hostel inside. only complaint would be that staff was not very helpful showing the facility and left us to wander by ourselves. and didn't like the locals waiting outside main entrance waiting for tourist to come up and either beg for money or harass you to show you around for money. felt the hostel should not allow the loitering right outside their door. .

Nice hostel in an old building, bit of a maze! Our room was tucked away next to a staircase and quite small but good enough for our stay. Staff were lovely, always very helpful. Beds were super comfy! Location was perfect, just a few minutes walk from the main square.

The Medina area sure is a maze but you won't be having any problems in finding the hostel if you just follow the instructions given in the "Map and Directions". When you have walked it once and paid attention to the landmarks, you will remember it for the rest of the stay. The hostel was very clean and the staff was friendly. Ear plugs are recommended since the noise from the common areas might be disturbing during nights. The rooftop restaurant was a great place to meet people and socialize.

Hard to find in the beginning but that goes for most places inside medina. Once familiarized, pretty easy to locate. Big general space, nice courtyard with a view, spotlessly clean(at least in Moroccan standard I guess). Great rooftop view to chill, or a have a free buffet style continental breakfast on(simple but sufficient). Only improvement is to offer little better ice breaking stuff(events, etc). Hard to get to meet people unless during the breakfast.

The hostel was a little difficult to find thru the winding alleys especially at night... the wifi only worked in the reception... the bedrooms and beds were clean, altough there were no top sheets so you just have a big blanket which everyone uses so I'm not sure how clean and hygenic this is....? The pool and the inside of the riad were lovely but the pool is not heated so not good for winter time.

This is a luxury hostel! With clean rooms, hot showers, a great roof terrace and even a swimming pool! A little slice of luxury within a very hectic medina! The only problem we had was that we had to change room 3 times for the 4 nights we were there, but the staff always have a smile on their face, and it was worth changing rooms just to keep the great location of the hostel. The courtyard can also be quite noisy if people party & stay up late, and it echoes into the rooms.

Fantastically beautiful hamam inside the Medina, close to Jemma El Fna and everything. Very hard to find because it's lost in a small Medina street, probably they should provide a special map for that. Room didn't have proper lockers. Breakfast is average. Generally clean. Concerning bed bugs, people that go to the desert usually bring them back. If they don't clean properly, it's not the hostel's fault.
