We had a great time at Riad Baraka. The terrace was fantastic and conducive to convivial conversation. Location is great for access to the main square and right in the middle of the old Medina. We very much enjoyed chatting to the staff who were extremely helpful. Overall, the Riad delivers what it promises, it's clean, relaxing and friendly.

The hostel is clean, beautiful, easy to find, and well located. It's just a few minutes walking from the main plaza and a nice stream that runs by the town. The staff are absolutely amazing - friendly, helpful, energetic. The terrace is really cool and offers a great space to hang out with new folk and relax. Also, the breakfast, while not free, is delicious and well priced. I would definitely stay here again.

Unfortunately the rooms not really soundproof but this is nature of building and I guess not much can be done

Possibly the most comfortable hostel bed I have ever slept in! Beautiful hostel with great staff and a really nice terrace on the roof. Really nice welcoming atmosphere and a great place to meet other travellers. My dorm was on the ground floor, the bathrooms were three floors up but they provide dressing gowns! I've never had that! I would have loved to stay for longer.

LOVED this hostel. If you're going to Chaouen stay here. The rooftop terrace is magical, especially at night when the call to prayer sounds around the entire town and you're surrounded by it! It's really close to the medina entrance and some great restaurants... even a great hamam (you MUST try it)! As a solo traveler it's a great hostel to meet people at, too. Also, take them up on the waterfall trip to Akshour (400 DH flat rate for a cab there and back) - really fun day out.

WHAT an adorable place! Riad Baraka is absolutely perfect for a stay in Chaouen. It's a few floors tall and has the most amazing rooftop terrace that has the most perfect 360 view of the blue city from right in the middle of it. It's super easy to find -- about a 2 minute walk from the medina entrance -- and right by a couple great restaurants and even an awesome authentic hamam! Staff is knowledgeable and helpful, free towels, place is super clean and neat - I'd go back in a heartbeat!

Great hostel if you want a little bit of a western influence. Building is really interesting, quite expensive compared to local offerings. Beer available if you need it. Good, but not really Morocco!

The Hostel is beautiful, very clean and confortable. I stayed on the private ensuite and it was perfect. Location is good, not really easy to find once its in the middle of the medina, they should have more signs with directions. Breakfast is not included but you can pay 2,5€ for a one, basic, but different from morrocoo breakfasts in general, in case you want something different. Atmosphere is nice, easy to meet people and the terrace is really cool!

the hostel is the best one I have stayed during my time in Morocco. The staff was super! and gave great recommendations as to where to eat. The whole place was well maintained, and super super clean. The bed was comfortable, again the best I had slept on in Morocco. Lovely terrace! It felt like home. I only stayed one night because my trip was near the end, I would highly recommend this place if you are thinking about a get-away trip to Chefchaouen. I wish I have an entire week there.

This is a nice riad with a beautiful terrace, conveniently located next to the main gate. The atmosphere is not as relaxed as in other similar places.

Nicest looking hostel I've ever stayed in - the view from the terrasse is absolutely amazing, It's a really chilled, relaxed atmosphere in this hostel, and the young guy who works here is really nice and was always looking to help. Great location in the centre of the medina. Only negatives are that you can't lock the doors and only a small locker (so no place to secure you bags) and that breakfast takes AGES - go down early and order if you're in a rush. But breakfast is amazing here!!!

This hostel had an unbeatable location and rooftop terrace. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and the vibe was tranquil. The proprietor was from the UK so communication was never an issue.
