A bit dissapointed with this hostel. My room have been upgraded from female dorm to double private room ensuite with no extra cost. The room is okay but the bathroom is too small. The hot water didn't work well or maybe it takes longer time to work?? The location is excellence. Near supratours bus stop. Only 5-8 mins walk. And located in Medina.

i don't understand why you have been disjointed, we given you a butter room with no extra cost, the map of the town, free tea all day, free and clean towel, the room was clean, you only paid 4.20 euros balance, you said the location was excellent, so why you are not happy... you are not a traveler, you are a tourist you haven't been travelling in the hostels before, so next time go to a hotel it's butter for you

The hostel was initially a little difficult to find and I was surprised that it was family run rather than by young travellers, but my stay was so much better because of it: they invités me to eat meals with the family and even took me on my own person alors night tour of the Town. Plus I visited Essaouira during a low season so I ended up having the dorm room all to my self! The staff really made this visit special for me and I will definitely have to return one day! Thank you!!

We had a fantastic time at Essaouira Youth Hostel & Social Travel and the staff (especially Simon) couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating of our needs and requests. I'd definitely stay again and would wholeheartedly recommend this place to friends

This hostel is the best in Essaouira! Everything is ready for the guests. Breakfast in the morning...clean rooms...wonderful staff. I stayed here for 1 month and I had the best time of my life...plus I met some really cool people. I loved the vibe in this hostel compared to all the others in the city. Also, it's centrally located right in the middle of the medina. Don't even bother looking anywhere else to stay. STAY HERE!

This hostel was absolutely amazing. There was a smaller group of people staying there, but we became a family in the few days we were there. We cooked dinners together, and spent evenings up on the rooftop terrace. Great atmosphere and great location. The owners of the hostel were also very hospitable and made sure we had everything we needed. Will definitely be back!

Bright and airy hostel - the first I've seen in Morocco along with the best sleep I've had yet. Good if cramped facilities though the kitchen could do with a clean. Great value for money. The guy at reception is rarely there though and no lockers that I could see. No breakfast either. Overall a great place for the price though, just be careful getting in the hammock!!

I think the guy at the reception didnt take his work seriously. He was playing music at 1 am and was stoned very often.
