Really nice and clean riad with a great Terrasse.
Staying at Riad Baraka was awesome! I've never stayed somewhere so clean - the linen smalls clean, the rooms, the entire place! And, to add a cherry on top, they have a better breakfast than I had anywhere else in Morocco. The terrace is also pretty sweet and Joe and Trevor are super helpful!
Great place! Best and cleanest hotel/hostel on our 3 weeks trip. Friendly and very helpful staff. Highly recommended.
Lovely terrace and really close to the main square! Not the best staff though: not as kind and helpful as the others you're gonna find in Morocco. Anyway, i would stay there again and totally recommend it.
Well designed, very clean, great place to stay in a very cool town.
This was our greatest stay in Morocco, and, paradoxically, the cheapest one. The place was impeccably clean, very easy to find and sooooo tastefully decorated. Loved modularity regarding breakfast and other services. We eat coffee and cigarettes in the morning, so it was great that we didn't have to pay for another breakfast we would not touch. The guys running it were great, they even helped with some gastronomic aspirations. Thank you heaps for that! We can't recommend it highly enough.
Joe and Trevor were the best hosts ever! Joe sure knows his stuff about Morocco and you can get a lot of info from him if you just listen to him talking. Walking to the Medina is so easy and just like a maze going through there! He had a fab Terrace to sit on and you could actually take a nice hot shower too! All in all, we had a great time there and would go back again if we go through there next time. Thanks so much Joe and Trevor!
Had a wonderful stay here with my boyfriend. The guys were really helpful, even found me another place to stay when they couldn't fit me in! Great location and terrace on the roof is awesome to watch the sunset.
For me, perfect in every way. Great location in the medina, but not so far inside that you can't find it. Amazing views from the rooftop terrace. Fantastic breakfast. Top hosts. Fast wifi. A wonderfully relaxing stay.
Loved our stay! Stayed here with my boyfriend in a private room it was clean and comfy we got fresh towels each day to. Great hostel and value for money! Joe and his brother were amazing hosts so friendly and helpful! Location is great really central to everything and easy to get around. The roof top terrace is beautiful with the most amazing views of Chefchaouen! You can purchase beers and wine which was a bonus! Breakfast was delish best coffee in morocco! Would definitely come back!
Had a great stay at this hostel with my boyfriend! Joe and his brother were extremely helpful. The hostel is in a great location, always clean and the rooftop terrace has a beautiful view overlooking Chefchaouen. Reccomend having breakfast there aswell! Much better value than in town and really fresh. Also reccomend walking to the waterfall at the national park, well worth it!
Just nice and recommandable! nothing more to say!
If you're trying to decide between Riad Baraka and somewhere else...stay here, hands down. It's a spotlessly clean, absolutely gorgeous hostel that's an incredible value in a quiet, centrally located area of the medina. We originally booked for one night and ended up staying much longer...we would probably have just moved in permanently if we could! Very safe and secure, with comfortable beds, and an absolutely incredible terrace. Joe and his brother were a joy to chat with, and so helpful!

Joe and his brother were incredibly kind and helpful. The Riad is impeccably clean, has a gorgeous terrace, and is situated very nicely within the lovely Chaouen medina. I highly, highly recommend it!
Location, staff, room, terrace all perfect. By far the best hostel we stayed in in Morocco. Great value for money.
Definitely, Riad Baraka deserves a 100%. Beautiful place, very clean and welcoming ! The owners has understood one thing that most riads don't : Music! There's always very cool music all around the place so that the atmosphere is always nice! Five minutes after my arrival in there, I asked Joseph to book my room for an additional night ! Worth the time ! And Chefchaouen is amazing !!!!

Great place! Clean and fully restored. Best place I stayed in Morocco!
Nice place, very quiet. The owner is a great character and very informative. Probably more suited to 25 age group, not really a party hostel. But I thoroughly enjoyed it. Beautiful terrace and views.
At the beginning we had our problems with ben (the host). He doesn't to be interessted in making his guests feel comfortable. But after you accept that he is just like that you get along well with him,
