Property Information:

Cloud 9 is located in the old medina, just a few minutes’ walk from the beautiful Plage Tagharte beach . We are right on the Avenue Mohamed Zerktouni, the most centrally located among the medina's streets and which allows the quickest access to central historical part.

We have free WIFI access!

Our purpose is not only to provide you with a comfortable stay, but to give you the opportunity to discover the ancient local culture, its history and its people.
The property itself is a rebuilt hostel and maintains a down to earth, warm, and familial atmosphere. The manager is native to Tinghir and can help you arrange your travels around the Medina’s winding streets, Skala du Port, Surfing classes and the public souk, among other places. Day trips that the staff can help with including trips to Paradise Valley and to the Sahara desert. We are connected with other travel businesses and can easily connect you with guides and transportation. Through your explorations, you will gain a unique perspective on the peaceful moroccan way of life.

If you are on the run from stress, Cloud 9 is the right place for you. We have a big patio, spacious rooms and hot showers. Our rooms range from single bedrooms, to double rooms, and a 6 bed dormitory.
We can accommodate up to 46 people in our rooms and many people meet each other and plan their days together in our furnished communal sitting area. There people connect over tea, shisha and their experiences.

The property home is built and decorated in a Hippy/Bohemian fashion. Sunroof lets the sun rays shine into the common room. Walls are covered in hand drawn art from various artists. Plants look down into our common area from ledges and corners, and the home comes alive with surf gear, photos of guests, and relaxed conversation.

We’d like to invite you to appreciate the beauty of Moroccan culture and architecture, and build a positive experience with our guests and staff. Guests are of all ages and bring interesting stories from around the world, and conversations can be mind opening.
Other amenities include a Moroccan breakfast for 20dh (2€) served with mint tea or coffee, traditional Moroccan Créps, fresh squeezed orange juice, banana and pomegranates, fresh bread with local honey and jam. We also have a washing machine on site and a printer nearby at a very low cost for customer use. For safety purposes, we offer lockers for important items. In the evenings, guests are also welcome to play guitar, lose the fear of differences and discover common roots and traditions. With the view of the medina from the top of our terraces you can let your imagination sweep you away to the enchanted tales of berber nights

We have no age restriction and you are more than welcome to book if you enjoy a young atmosphere

    Cloud Nine was the greatest hostel we have stayed at, the hospitality was incredible and the staff are relaxed and a lot of fun. We had some fantastic nights on the amazing rooftop terrace where we cooked family sized tajines and stayed up for hours chatting with everyone. The rooms are greatly sized and the wifi works well both upstairs and down. This hostel really looked after us and we will most deffinately be coming back here. I recommend this hostel to all travelers!! Thanks Cloud Nine :)
