the man who manage the hostel Hisham made me feel very welcomed and definitely added to my essaouira experience. The common areas were always playing good music and relaxed conversation with other travellers and the staff was always flowing Very friendly and helpful staff at all times. Very good value for money!!!

Our 2 days in Essouira were very pleasant, unfortunately we were there in very low season so we cannot really comment on the atmosphere but I bet when the hostel is full it has a very nice vibe.


LIke most hostels in Morocco, the value for money here is staggeringly low. I've stayed in cleaner, fresher, more atmospheric places in most of the Third World for half what you pay here. Perhaps should have tried bargaining. The dorm was so small that there is no airflow and the management is haphazard- they never have any change and so ask you every time they see you to pay for the next night despite having no change.
