Jaouad and his crew were amazing- great vibe around the place, especially on the rooftop terrace! Cheap but good Moroccan dinner every night which gets everyone together. Place is kept spotless. Helped us get to the desert- sorting accom for us in Marrakech and checking up on us once we had left! Still message him now for advice regarding other places! This hostel goes above and beyond- def the place to stay!

This was my favorite hostel in Morocco. It was very clean, the staff was sociable, and there was a great rooftop terrace with hammocks. They also had cheap dinners which were delicious and really brought together everyone staying there. Don't rush your trip to Essaouria, stay for as long as you can!

I have spent the past 9 months staying in various hostels and Cloud 9 is by far the best one yet. It had such a bright and welcoming atmosphere with beautiful music and inviting smiles from everyone. The beds are incredibly comfortable, the entire place is kept very tidy, and there are plenty of accessible outlets, which is always nice. The staff were so helpful and genuinely glad to have you staying with them. The meals they offered were cheap and tasty and the location is very easy to find.

The water in the shower was cold and the sheets a little old, but the rest was great! Nice smoking room on the first floor. Totally worth $5

If you are looking for place to call your home for a night or more this is the place to stay! Rarely felt so welcome the minute I walked through the door. Super nice breakfast for just 2€ and dinners in the evening available.

Extremely friendly and helpful staff, nice social environment. We happened to be there for a BBQ on the roof in the evening which was really nice. Rooms are clean and comfy with lockers available. Over all a top hostel especially when you consider the price!

Never come, you'll never want to leave!! But seriously do come, it's in a new location and evolving its space. It's friendly and open with no exaggerated frills. Never slept so well and felt so at home so quickly. Everyone amazing!! :-) :-) :-)

I had an amazing time from when Jaouad met us at the bus stop! He gave us great recommendations for restaurants, sights and was always friendly and helpful. The hostel was so chilled that we decided to stay extra time. Hope to return in the future. Best place to stay in Essaouira, only bad thing is that you have to leave!

We could not be more please with our stay at Cloud 9. The atmosphere was very welcoming and we did not want to leave. Jaouad was very sweet and extremely helpful. He offered to meet us at the bus station so we wouldn't get lost, give us insider info on where to go for food, hamman, bars, etc and what prices to pay so we won't get screwed over for being tourists. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone looking to meet great people and get a peaceful nights sleep.

We really loved it at Hostel Cloud 9. It was right in the center of the Medina, easy to find and not far from the sea. The shower always worked (with hot water!) and it was very clean. You can use the kitchen, and there is a lot of space to meet fellow travellers. The owners where incredible friendly and helpfull!

The guys who run the hostel have created a very homely and welcoming atmosphere. They are very down to earth and helpful & regularly sit around chatting with the guests. A big tagine was made on one occasion which everyone shared, or you can use the kitchen facilities. Recommended!

This hostel is really perfect, it's super chilled and sometimes in the evenings the staff and guests come together to play music or cards and share a giant tajine. the staff make you feel like you're part of their family. The rooms have a lot of light and are really clean and from the rooftop you can see all of essaouira. It's in a really good location as well, close to everything. I would recommend it for all travellers.

I have stayed at Cloud Nine a number of times when visiting Essaouira. I continually come back because Jawaoud has done a great job of making this place a relaxing and chilled out home which is a great place to pass the days. The house is clean with lots of natural light, bright colors, good music playing at all hours. The staff is attentive to backpackers needs.

The roof top terrace is amazing, enabling you to enjoy the nice view above the typical morrocan roofs. Perfectly located, just a couple of minutes to get pretty much everywhere. Also, the staff will know some nice spots off the beaten path for you. The beds are super-comfortable with warm blankets which I found to be rare.

It may have just been the season, but this was one of the most calm hostels I've stayed at.
