Relatively good location but the streets leading to the hostel are very quiet and dark at night. Rooms do not have external facing windows and the only ventilation is through the center courtyard in the middle of the hostel, making things *very* warm even at night. You can sleep on the terrace but those spots get taken really quickly. Noise from the communal area also gets amplified upwards towards the rooms making it hard to sleep. WiFi is spotty and slow and often does not connect.
The hostel is really nice. Staff is great. Just dont expect a good night of sleep.. they keep the music playing until midnight and there are no doors on the rooms.
Great people, great atmosphere, great place

BED BUGS. The staff have no clue how to get rid of them so don’t get your hopes up. The staff reaction was unacceptable - they laughed, called me stupid and argued that it wasn’t bed bugs despite the evidence (other hostellers actually got a photo of one) , one manager was apologetic but told me that there were only bed bugs on the terrace (this is not a new problem). I was bitten in my dorm. Ignoring that, the hostel is kind of boring. Better places to stay in the city for the same price.
Location is great only a 5min walk to the main square (Jemaa El-Fna) even though REALLY HARD TO FIND in the first place!! As you arrived you're welcomed with a green tea and can have some for free for 24hrs! They sell beer in this hostel which is great because its really hard to drink in Marrakesh they also do shisha ! The roof terrace is awesome you can sleep there if you want to because it does get very hot and stuffy in the dorms ! Breakfast is great and the hostel also do tours !!!
This hostel was the first hostel I have ever stayed in and let me say I got spoiled. Truly the most incredible experience.. great people.. the staff does everything they can to make you feel at home. The terrace is incredible and everyone is super social. Free breakfast free tea and shisha!!! Every night everyone hung out in the terrace there are no curfews or silly rukes. I will definitely come back. This is what made Marrakech fun

Amazing place. Great staff, lots of fun and very helpfull. Love the free tea and breakfast. I meet a lot of people in this hostel, it has a great atmósfera. Bathrooms could use some fixing. I will defently come back!
This is an awesome hostel. Probably my favourite in all my travels. The rooftop was the best part with a great atmosphere. Big breakfast to fill you up in the morning. When sleeping in the beds it gets very hot but you have the choice to sleep on the rooftop. Staff are very helpful when you need to find things. Would highly recommend this!!!
