Myself and my partner stayed in this delightful oasis of calm in October. It was my 4th time time here and I was so warmly welcomed back. Perfect hostel, perfect hosts, perfect location and perfect vibes. Keep it up Brahim and Magic! The room we were put in was incredible. Will be returning (again!)

The people in the Hostel make you feel like you are staying with family. They can arrange anything you'd ever want, Simo and the other guys helped us with arranging litterally everything we wanted. From changing bustickets to another day even after we already got them, to walking with us to the hamman to book a massage. If you want to eat or drink something in the Hostel you can get it and they also arrange BBQ's and dinners every now and then. I'd recommend this hostel to anyone!

Great hostel, awesome vibe. The staff are brilliant, rooms are cleaned every day. The rooftop with kitchen is a massive bonus and great place to hang out, not to mention the regular group dinners. Definitely recommend staying here!

Staff amazingly friendly and warm, especially the two Simons... so nice to come into this hotel after being out in the busy Medina, to find a mellow , relaxed ambiance, with good music, welcoming and caring hosts!!! Big, clean rooms, beautiful terrace, lots of space... great breakfast made by the older Simon, who I generous and kind. The younger Simon goes out of his way to always greet with a sincere smile, and I always prepared to help out if you need anything... so happy I found this place!!!

An amazing hostel/Riad to stay to spend some time in Essaouira. The hostel is a bit remote in the Medina but after a bit of walking you will reach the main streets. The hotel manager Magic is a great person !! The place is lovely and very well decorated and you can see that Magic is a big fan of 70's and 80's music !! If I ever went back to Essaouira, I would book a bed at Hostel Essaouira !!

Although very cheap, it's not worth it! The hostel is filthy and smelly, the rooms horrible with terrible pillows and mattresses. The staff were okay, though not overly friendly, and the location is fine, with Essaouira being pretty small. It was the kind of place where you don't want to touch anything, and was not a good night's sleep!

Was an ok hostel for the price, but my friend and I got eaten by bugs. It looked like bed bugs, we told the staff and he passed them off as mosquito bites (definitely weren't). Booked 5 nights but only stayed 3, he wouldn't give us our money back for the other 2 nights.

We stayed at Hostel Essaouira for the festival and were really pleased we had chosen to stay there. The staff were so helpful, getting our bus tickets for us and cooking delicious food. The hostel has a great atmosphere. I would definitely recommend.
