A really nice hostel within the Marrakech medina. The pool, roof terrace and the bar (with alcohol) made it remarkable nice for beeing in the heart of the medina. I liked my first three days so much that I got back for another three after my trip to the desert. I would recommend them to improve their wi-fi though. You had to be in the reception or close by to use it...

En general esta bien, buena situación y grande riad, pero una cosa es la gama y la habitación , es humedad por eso la gente siempre estaba a la fuera , en la terresa o the swimming poor

Great spot with cool facilities. Hard to find at the start but once you find it it's easy to navigate your way back. Only bad thing was I put my luggage in the luggage storage room and it isn't locked. Someone went through my bag and stole money and credit cards. A lock on the door would be good.

This hostel can be a bit hard to find at the beginning, but once you get used to the labyrinth of streets, you realise it's located 2 seconds away from everything. The building as such is absolutely AMAZING. Many chilling spots in authentic Moroccan architecture. Desert tents. Straight out of 1001 nights! Astonishing rooftop and great view. Room cleanliness was a bit mehhh. The reception staff is a not so insightful and a bit vain, s

Good place to stay! Breakfast was great with coffee, mint tea, orange juice, bread, jam, cakes, and pancake-like pastries. The rooftop terraces with chairs are really nice. The pool was closed for cleaning when we were there but it looked like a good area. Rooms are fine and bathrooms were good with hot water. Staff was friendly. Lots of other people staying there but the hostel is so big that there didn't seem to be one main place to meet others. Location is prime. Definitely recommend!

The hostel was really close to the Main Square and to the Souks, so great location, the breakfast was not a huge buffet, but really nice for the price. Unfortunately there was no water in the pool, but there was construction going on, so it will probably be there soon. Very nice terrace with a nice view of the sunset.

Maybe the best hostel I've ever been. Location is great, 3 minutes to Djemaa el Fna. Difficult to find first time, but will discover an excellent hostel. Staff is great, at disposition for everything at every hour. Higly recomanded!!!

Salaam alekoum ... Equity Point is like a resort for backpackers! Really enjoyed my stay because I found it so easy to meet people around the breakfast table, around the pool area or on the terrace at sunset time. The staff is lovely! Cheers Amagi

Truely a backpackers resort and the place where everyone seems to be. Huge terraces, restaurant, bar, good breakfast and a killer hidden tent room. Worth the money if your wanting to find somewhere close to the medina Jemma El Fna and wanting to meet a lot of people.

İf it were not at its present location, this place would have been a 7 star hotel...Pool, the building itself and so many architectural details. As a traveller, we are so lucky that it is a hostel. Breakfast is poor. Could have been richer. Mattresses are comfy and blankets are new and soft. Atmosphere was not so good but it is low season and I could not see so many people around. Staff is helpful and welcoming. Thanks Equity Point!

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.
