Property Description

The Essaouira Beach Hostel is NOW OPEN as of July 2019! Come check out what’s about to be the most talked about hostel in Essaouira, where you can enjoy comfort, good company, and the beach just out the door.

The Essaouira Beach Hostel is located just a one minute walk from the beach, the outdoor basketball court and the football facilities. We are a 10 minute walk from both the Medina and Supratours. We are a 5 minute walk from the CTM bus station. Taxis can be taken anywhere in Essaouira for just 7 dirham. Tasty and affordable shops and restaurants are right down the street. The location here is unbeatable - out of the bustle but in close proximity to everything you need and want!

We offer dorms and private bedrooms. Each dorm bed has a blackout curtain, a small private locker for valuables, a reading light and outlets for both your phone and laptop. Below each bunk is a storage locker for bags/luggage. Dorm rooms have privacy boards between each bed so you always have a place to call completely your own! Every room has windows to let in the fresh ocean air, and all private rooms have a beautiful view of the beach. There is free wifi throughout the entire hostel.

Every morning of your stay here you can expect a not only free but DELICIOUS breakfast! Free hot tea is served daily. Free Couscous Fridays! There’s a shared kitchen for use of our guests, and traditional Moroccan meals will also be available to satisfy those tagine cravings! Smoothies, coffee and tea will be available on the roof terrace in the evening as you watch the sunset.

We offer a variety of excursions and day trips to the most highlighted places in Essaouira as well as all over Morocco! You can choose from activities like surfing, kitesurfing, kayaking, fishing, horseback riding, quad biking and camel riding. We also offer 4, 3 and 2 day excursions to the Sahara Desert and other sites in Morocco if you’re interested.

    One of the best hostels I've stayed at in Morocco. The Location is perfect, just off the beach, with surfing and kite surfing equipment/lessons readily available. Wonderful facilities, and such warm and welcoming staff. I've had the pleasure of visiting during Ramadan, and have gotten to break my fast each evening (iftar) with the staff at the hostel, and it has been a highlight of my time here. Even got to learn how some of the dishes are prepared. Highly recommend Essaouira Beach Hostel.

    I really liked my stay at Essaouira Beach Hostel. The staff is super friendly and they support you with anything you need. The breakfast and the dinner is very good and authentic. They offer a lot of activities like surf, quadtours, cooking classes and many others. The chillout areas are cozy and very nice decorated. You can hang out inside the building and outside on the rooftop terrace with a perfect view to the ocean. The beds are very comfy and the facilities super clean. Highly recommended!

    I arrived ill in Essaouira, and everyone was so nice and took care of me. The rooms are clean, the bunks with individual plugs and lights are great, especially if you need to rest. Couscous on Friday has been delicious and with the guys starting to play music a perfect last evening!! Thx to everyone!!

    Fab guests I made some great friends here, we were all stranded with Covid19. Had some fab times talented staff are great but the owners had a fall out, whilst we were there which caused ongoing tension. The manager was at times verbally abusive & inconsistant as was one of the staff members to me. The hostel is cold & there is no designated quite space, work area or indépendant guest kitchen. Its a great area, stress of the situation was obviously impacting the staff team & guests.
