Really good hostel. more than friendly staff, helping you get around and with infomation about the city, history and events. The place itself is a beautifull building, build in traditional style. A amazing common room, wich i think is quite important for travelers who set out to meet new people. The lociation is exectly in between the old and the new part of Marrakech. I booked this hostel and didn't know what to expect, luckely it the hostel provided everything i needed. worth it!

The place was ok. It looks very nice, it's clean, but a bit difficult to find, and uncomfortable if you stay in the second building, as you need to ask a staff to go with you to open it. A bit of a hassle. The staff was also ok. I would say the main point in its favor is that it's cheap.

One of the best hostels I have stayed in. We arrived by coach at 4am on very little sleep and went straight to the hostel as we didn't know what else to do. We woke the manager and he told us that our rooms weren't ready but took us to a quiet room with sofas, gave us some bedding and let us sleep there for free. The next day we were shown our clean and comfy dorm and had some good cheap breakfast. The hostel was full of interesting characters and there are excellent communal areas to meet them.

Felt so welcomed here, the atmosphere was great and I was taken care of the whole time. A great place for different nationalities to meet and use as a base to see Marrakesh. The riad was gorgeous and the breakfast and lovely ladies serving it were great as well.

They work together with Massin 1, 2 and Casa del Sol (same owner).You might get a room next door(not recommended) or even at CDS(which is pretty much inside the souk, close to the square.No lockers, if you check out you can leave your laguage in th hall but sometimes there's no one to have a look at it.I think this is a good Hostel although the reviews are bit too optimistic. I stayed there 6 nights in 4 different room and I had the opportunity of staying in both Massins and I also was sent to C

Cheap accomodation next to cheap restaurants in the old town, just ask someone on the street for directions and tip 10 or 20 dirhams.

We had a nice stay at Riad Massin, the breakfast (not included) is very decent, the hostel was clean and we weren't cold (in winter). We had a room right next to the common room though, which is unfortunately not soundproofed at all, so we were woken up early by a group of early risers having way too much fun 3 meters from our bed. We heard the hostel has multiple locations depending on occupation rates and room type, so YMMV. In terms of value for money, it's really good though.

Although it's quite close to the bus stop(if you're coming with Airport Shuttle) it's far from Square, Souks, gardens etc. If you like walking, that's no problem, the walk up through the sreet market is a nice one.15 minutes from square, 30 minutes from everything else. Staff is attentive, kind and helpful: excellent. Not included Breakfast for 25dh is ok (coffee,tea,milk,butter,jam,bread).Poor wifi+one pc.No lockers for bags.Very noise because of the eco of the lobby.Wcs re better then in India

This Riad has so much character and the staff are friendly and helpful! It's located in an alley which can feel a little unsafe finding in the dark. They monitor the door 24/7 but the rooms don't have locks and there wasn't a place to lock up our bags. For the price, you can't beat it!

There was something wrong with the website and in the end, we were unable to stay at Riad Massin as the private room we had booked for was occupied. Despite this, the owner of Riad Massin was extremely helpful and brought us to one of the hostels nearby, making sure that we went comfortable.

Nice hostel, in a central location for both the medina and the new city, the hostel is split between two building and a bit of a pain that you have to go into the main building and ask for someone to let you into the 2nd building. The hostel is very good value for money but lacks a little in facilities, kitchen and laptop are also used by the staff leaving the kitchen unusable (as not the cleanest) but as the hostel is cheap enough you can afford to eat out

We stayed in the Riad as a family of four in a 4 bed dorm. the room was tiny, but clean and comfortable. the bathroom was shared and here was some noise from the shared courtyard, but we loved our stay and came back two more times! the staff were great and helped us with lost luggage and other advice. Very friendly. Location was a bit out of the center of things, but we appreciated that! Only the bathrooms could be a bit cleaner.

Good hostel, inside the Marrakesh Medina and near of the Gueliz neighbourhood, where is the modern part of the city. The guys of the hostel are really helpful with everything you need.

The people who work here are amazing. They work so hard, and always so friendly. They don't charge enough for their bunks. Great atmosphere.

Pleasant, very cheap, relatively quiet stay with no problems. Only complaints: the showers have no curtains so there is always a large amount of water all over the bathroom floor and there are no keys (except for the lockers) so a staff member always has to come to let you into one of the two buildings which is sort of inconvenient. Otherwise I would highly recommend Riad Massin.

This riad is a great deal for the price, and the staff are simply great! Very helpful and friendly. The place has a lovely roof terrace and common area. The dorm room was a bit small for six beds but it was clean.

A lovely old riad, formerly a luxury hotel.

For 5 euro, we had pretty low expectations for this place, but it was absolutely beautiful! The owner will greet you with traditional mint tea and a great talk about everything there is to do in Marrakech, along with great tips (like how much you should expect to pay in the souks!) This hostel also has great connections for excursions- we did a GREAT day trip! The airport pick-up was also awesome as this place is kind of hidden. Great location- close to both the newer area of the town & Medina!
