I think overall it was a lot different than I expected. It was extremely beautiful & the reception lady was VERY NICE however some of the other staff especially those patrolling at night were very rude & everything was based around getting payments even if it was at the early hours of the night. Also it was extremely extremely cold & I am Canadian and saying this.

The riad was actually very lovely, there were tours, shisha, breakfast and hammams available. The road was beautiful and colourful as well. The staff were also lovely, always making sure that everything was alright. The only problem for my friend and I was that we had chosen to visit Marrakech at a time when it was raining/flooding, so what would've been a perfect accommodation during warmer times, did not work too well for us.

Only one bathroom with shower inside for the whole floor. Had to go to the lobby to pee if there was a line for the shower. Only one outlet in the room, had to take turns charging our phones with 6 other people. We went on a desert excursion overnight, but still had to pay for that night at the hostel even though we booked through the hostel. Excursion was a disaster, they gave a refund to some of the people who went, but we didn't get a refund. I'm going to keep calling until they give me mine

Great location and the staff were awesome. My only gripe was the sheets on both of our beds were either not washed or not washed very well. They smelled like the last few guests 💀. Note they do not have lockers for your valuables. We didn't have any issues.

An excellent stay in Riad Dia! Staff were helpful and will go the extra mile to make you feel welcomed at all times. Breakfast starts from 6.45am which was great for early starts and there are a variation of day trips they will organise for you. Located nice and close to the main attractions in Marrakech with an atmosphere perfect for single and group travellers to socialise. I would highly recommend!

Once you found your way (def check the video directions!) friendly and warmhearted loving people await you. The Riad is beautiful and the breakfast really good. I just wish I had been shown around a bit more, like where the bathrooms are, where the towels are, etc. But it was alright to just ask.

Staying at Riad Dia was great, arriving in marrakesh was quite confusing; arriving at Dia was so nice free tea and the staff are really helpful and patient, helps you make sense of a busy city: The free dinner on friday was lovely the roof terrace really nice too, the staff make the place though always happy to help whatever the time: I would definitly reccomend this colourful vibrant place for anyone coming to marrakesh: Anita/Leila

Once you step into the hostel you are greeted with the warmest welcome and some delicious mint tea (that you can get any time of day). Layla was amazing and helped us with any questions we had. She even offers henna designs which look amazing. Great location just near the main square where the markets are. Would stay again and did at the end of my 2 weeks in Morocco. Breakfast provided and not many power points in room but able to make do.

You will want to go back! Incredible location, panoramic roof terrace views, charismatic staff, as much free tea as you can drink and we even got a free dinner with live music on our last night. This place made our holiday!

We have stayed at that hostel for 3 or 4 nights and i can tell that the atmosphère is pleasant. It's not a five star hotel but you can find what you want there.
