    One of the nicest and cosiest hostel I've ever been to! Stuff was super friendly, special greetings to Radwan who definitely was the funniest guy here haha, thank you for the great time! Also the dinner in the evening was super delicious! Spending time on the roof terrace was absolutely perfect for just hang out and read a book, for us also perfect for having breakfast or play cards. Perfect for staying longer, unfortunately we just stayed for 2 nights. :)

    We went for two nights at Atlantic Hostel where we met awesome people to discover Essaouira. The staff were like family in the end; they took good care of us. The floors are locked under a door code, and the rooms are open. There are lockers under every bed tho (bring your padlock) The food was INSANE, they are the #1 in TripAdvisor! CousCous is the chef in the house, he will treat you will all the typical Moroccan food and the best mint tea. Breakfast for 2€ extra worth it in the rooftop!

    The hostel is very well located, staff is very friendly and kind to help you if you have any questions. Breakfast is amazing from the rooftop! Overall I had a very good experience except from the tractor sleeping next to me! But that’s what hostel life is about :)

    The staff is very friendly. The dinner is well worth sampling in the evenings - the food is amazing. The toilet and bathroom is cramped and could be much cleaner. Avoid booking with the hostel. They sent me to a Hammam that was horrendously overpriced. The "harman" turned out to be a small room with cheap tiles in the back of someone's house. Felt thoroughly ripped off. No doubt the hostel got a cut. This left a horrible experience for the rest of the trip.

    Strange atmosphere , outside the front door is always a group of young men , inside is a hangout for the large amount of Moroccan men, they don’t hire backpackers as volunteers so the staff are always just hanging around. Bathrooms always flooded and only cleaned once a day even tho it’s 1 toilet to 20 people. Shower is a pipe sticking out of the wall. Beds are a bunk, no shelves or powerpoints or curtains. But..... it has a cool terrace... you put up with the rest of it for the terrace
