Property Description

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.

    Perfect location for those coming to Essaouira for the beach activities. About 5 mins away from the medina by taxi which costs 7dh. The hostel is new so all facilities are in great condition. The staff are very welcoming and willing to help plan your itinerary. I will definitely choose this hostel on my next visit to Essaouira.

    I loved my stay at Essaouira Beach Hostel! The owner and staff are all super friendly and welcoming. The owner, Oussama, brought us to Skala to watch the sunset and we went to the market to get all the ingredients for tagine and made a delicious seafood tagine back at the hostel for a very good price! This is just one of the many amazing experiences I had at the hostel. Beds were comfy! Note: it isn't in the medina but the walk is short and it's a relaxing area on the beach, it was perfect imo

    Best hostel in all of Morocco! Perfectly located, he hostel is just a cruisy, scenic 10 minute walk from the Medina and is literally across the road from the beach! Super close to anything you need. This is the perfect place for backpackers! The hostel is very clean and has everything you need. Privacy in a large dorm room, good showers and HOT water!!! It’s a great place to meet other travelers and Oussama does an amazing job at making sure everyone feels welcome! See you again in 2 weeks!

    I had a great stay. All of the staff were really friendly and helpful. They suggested local things to do and ran events in the evenings like group meals and football matches. It was also so close to everything like the beach and the bus stop.

    The staff was great and very welcome! We arrived really late at night and they were still ok, and actually one of the guys offered me a tea and crepe even though it was 3am. Bathrooms are very clean, breakfast is more than enough and with quite a variety. The view from the terrace is amazing us it looks right to the sea and the vibe on the whole place was great!

    Lovely hostel. Bedrooms especially nice as you get your own curtain to have a space completely to yourself. Only downside was that the WiFi didn’t work in my room, but was perfect downstairs in the common room.

    Overall we really enjoyed our stay here! The whole building was very clean, and our private room was comfortable. The staff were friendly and couldn't do enough to help, and the breakfast was varied, it could be improved by providing coffee.The only minor complaint I have is, we paid to have our laundry done and it came back still smelly. The only other thing to be aware of is that the building is very echoey. There is quiet time after 11 and that works well. Overall I would stay again!
