Small hostel. Nice, friendly multilingual moroccan staff. Overall clean hostel but bathroom floor was wet most of the time. Overpriced I feel at 85 - 95 dh per night in a 6 bed dorm.

A great place to stay and relax! It's a simple but clean hostel. The owner of the hostel is a really nice guy that helps you when you need something or want to know more about the culture. And he's a great cook!! Would recommmend it to my friends!

Cloud 9 is a wonderful hostel. There are no limits and everybody is very relaxed. Besides that there are lot of activities offered. I loved the cooking lessons, where we prepared tajine. The staff is very open minded and it is quite interesting to talk with them over marrocon lifestyle and their goals. Thumbs up!!! I forgot to say, that the Hostel has to roof terraces with a nice view on the Medina of Essaouira.

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in, nothing is impossible for the hostel owner, from haggling the best motorbike parking to coming with me to the bus station and managing to get my motorbike on a bus to Marrakech! Amazing friendly hostel wish I could of stayed longer!

I love this hostel - I stayed previously and was invited back in June for the Gnaoua festival - I didn't hesitate to book a bed. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the atmosphere is brilliant and meeting other travellers is easy, the location is great and the staff are really friendly and very helpful

Great place, the guys running the place are very friendly and entertaining. They pick you up at the gate of the medina so you won't have any problems finding it. The place is kept clean and has lockers to keep your belongings safe. There's a very laid back atmosphere here. Solid (free) Wi-Fi! Good place to meet some other travelers too!

We stayed for one night and it was great! The staff is very friendly and the location is perfect...and very easy to find. The hostel offers a cooking lesson for dinner but we weren't able to join but when we returned later in the evening it smelled amazing! The rooftop terrace is lovely and a great space to hang out with friends. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

Very well located and cute hostel, less than 10 minutes walk from the beach and right in the heart of the Medina. The hosts, Jaouad and Assan, are great guys and will help you with any doubts you have. I would definitely recommend Cloud9 and most likely will come back here if I ever go back to Essaouira. P.S. If you are coming here from Marrakech take Supratours, not CTM; it is much much closer. And I recommend you call them beforehand...The hostel is very hard to find on your own!!

We enjoyed the rooftop terrace to the fullest! This hostel has a really nice staff, with whom we had very interesting conversations. They made a gigantic effort to return my forgotten blouse. Thank you guys, we had a great time! XOXO

Great hostel. All the guys working here are so friendly and will help sort you out with anything you need. Great to chill out on the roof, but watch out for the seagulls. Would recommend it to anyone.

The staff was very friendly and the location was good. There were only one toilet. I got a room in the roof, it was very quiet but the wifi was weak or not available, I had to go close to the stairs to be online. I stayed in a 6 bed room and the beds were so close to each other that there was no space for the belongings. There was no sign of the hostel so it was a bit difficult to find it. Good value for money, 15 min walk to the beach and in the middle of the medina.

I had an absolutely amazing time at Cloud9. Not only was it in a perfect location, but the staff (Assan & Jaouad) were so lovely and very helpful. It was a very relaxed vibe and was a great place to just chill out. I've stayed at a lot of hostels and this is one of the few that I have actually felt at home. The other guests were awesome too! Definitely recommend the Tagine cooking class!!! Definitely the best tagine I had in Morocco, without a doubt! I will be so sad to leave Cloud9!!!

Good roof place to hang out, exellent location , hot shower delicious classic food ( tagine) and also breakfast . And the staff who runs the place were so welcoming and helpful every day. This place is really good value for money. Thanks for everything!

I loved my stay at cloud nine! It has a great location and I met lovely people, the owner Assan is very friendly and welcoming! I stayed in the basic 6 bed dorm, and it was small but nice, the bathroom is also small but kept clean. I definitely recommend!

I stayed here for 4 nights in April and was just blown away by the kind staff and welcoming vibe. I met so many cool, chilled out people. The staff are so dedicated and go above and beyond to take care of the hostel and the guests. They recommended and organised a range of activities for us, which was great. There are hot showers, the rooftop was a great place to chill out, the kitchen is clean and well equipped (there was a group tagine a few nights, which was awesome). My favourite hostel ever

FANTASTIC STAY! The private room was very clean and tidy and comprised a double bed and a shower with a good stream of hot water. The toilette was situated only a step away. The dorms were also very clean, the beds immaculately made with warm blankets provided. Great roof terraces! But the best thing was the people. We had a great night making a traditional tagine and the hosts were so friendly and helpful organising transport and activities. They also make a mean breakfast! Recommend!!
