Great hostel and staff! Great location, nearby Supratours busstop in the heart of the medina of Essaouira. But the best about this hostel is the ambiance and positive vibe. The staff is not only very very friendly and kind. But a lot of fun too, very generous and they do everything they can to make your stay unforgetable. Most of them speak good English. The guests were a colorful mix. The rooms aren't expensive and the atmosphere is priceless. Was supposed to stay only one night, but stayed 4.

It seems to be a cool party place, but not a deal to those who just want to sleep. Very noisy and neither hot water nor doors (!) in the shower.

Amazing hostel, amazing staff, more a family than a hostel actually. I planned on staying 3 nights and stayed 6 instead. It felt like home, coming back from a walk and cooking together, making music and singing. Loved it. Im going to be back as soon as possible.

We were on the deparment offer by the hostel, its great, a big place with terrace, nice view, space and all integrated. The only bad thing is that boiler hasnt gas, so the water was close, but I really recomend the deparment is really safe and the location is great.

BED BUGS! Everyone in our room had large amounts of bed bug bites, which the staff unfortunately seemed unfazed about. Disappointing as otherwise it could have been a nice place, but please do not book here until they have cleaned up their act and thrown out their mattresses!

especially for single travellers hoping to meet people and make friends, and for all travellers to get a feel for the local spots. Having the cafe downstairs was useful !! Good location

The hostel was very difficult to locate, they tell you to follow the signs but they are all rusted over and illegible. But it is a great place to tour around Essaouira from. The hostel was not very busy, so my friend and I were given our own room, which I really appreciated.

Really friendly and helpful staff made us feel at home. Amazing atmosphere and vibes, definitely going back soon. Great location and the roof terrace has a BBQ and plenty of sun. Osfour the Manger and Simo the majic number make the place what it is. Thanks

A very relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Cleanliness left a bit to be desired but good enough if you're doing things on the cheap. Views/vibe on the rooftop terrace a definite highlight.

A fabulous hostel. Enjoyed my first stay so much I went back for another week. Owner and Simo are friendly and helpful. It is a great place to relax,socialise, meet fellow travellers and learn how to cook Tagines.
