    The staff at Waka Waka Hostel showed us more hospitality than any other hostel has in the entire world! Staying here made me feel like I was staying with family! They were so accommodating (they let us store our bags for free for 3 days while we went down to the Sahara Desert and even made us breakfast before normal breakfast times since we had to leave early!). They also offered us free orange juice upon our arrival (which is a must). The hostel itself is cute, and the location is great!

    Love this hostel! The atmosphere is fantastic, the beds are pretty comfortable and the shower is hot! All the staff are really friendly and helpful too, you can book the excursions through them for cheap and get picked up from the hostel. There is a communal locker but bring your own lock for it. The open roof is super cool but the rooftop has to be the best bit, super chilled out and comfortable everyone there even the guests are so friendly and there’s turtles on the roof!

    It’s my first trip to Marrakesh and I was pleasantly welcomed by Said and he looked after me through out my whole stay helping around and explaining everything very well. Waka Waka is very close to main square and walking distance from all main attractions. I felt really comfortable at the hostel and Elias make always sure that the breakfast is very good! On my next trip to Morocco I’ll make sure I’ll visit again Marrakesh and stay at the hostel again.

    Very cute and quaint place. The breakfast is good and they have great service! Slightly in a somewhat dark street and their bathrooms aren’t the best, but it’s the best value for your money.
