Very nice people to welcome guests.


it is a great place to stay with excellent staff and atmosphere, I would only say that the bathrooms got out of toilette paper very quickly


Wnderful Location, away from the main road, quite. Inside a very nice looking authentic local athmosphere. Staff are very friendly, helpful and always ready to answer any questions. There is not much sound isolation....so if you travel as a couple...well you know what i mean :)

plug in bedroom wasn't fixed in the10 days I stayed (and one of the staff (simone) was very dishonest and stole money from me. I asked for my laundry to be done and he charged me 60 dirhams. laundry was returned to me in my original bag with the price written on it as 40 dirhams. he was a total scrounger, scabbing cigarettes and alcohol continually. the other staff were all really nice. shame that this conman was able to abuse his position right under their trusting noses.

When I booked there was written that the breakfast is included, but at hostel I had to pay for the breakfast. I told them that on the internet they have written breakfast included but they did't want to hear nothing.


Guys, do something with the terrace! It has such a great potential!!!


The sign is a little hidden on the right side so we walked past at first. The staff is friendly and ready to help. The rooms are ok but the toilets are not to well maintained and the blankets felt a little sticky. All in all its a good value for the money you pay.


Very well situated but not very clean, it was very dark in the hostel and in the rooms, not a very good atmosphere. But it's cheap so yeah
