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!

Hi there ! Thank you very much for your nice review. Hope everything is okay! Take care and have a safe trip


Best hostel in Essaouira! Very friendly staff and the rooms are clean and cosy. They serve dinner for all the guests for a very small price. And because of that you get to know all the guests in the hostel as well. The atmosphere was so good here! Thank you!

Hi! Thank you for the nice review. we are glad you had a good time in Essaouira .See you next time Inchallah / All the best !!


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!

Hello Kevin ! I'm happy you had a great time in our hostel ! You were a sweetheart and it was a delight hosting you and listening to the crazy stories of your book. Take care, hostel cloud9


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

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you experienced to have a cold shower. The heat is on now, so our guests always can have a nice and warm shower. We hope you had a great time in Morocco. See you next time!


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.

Thank you for your comment. We were pleased to have you at our hostel.


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!
