    Great atmosphere. Saïd was a great host and made me feel very welcomed, like most people in Morocco. Great place to stay as a female solo traveler. One of the few hostels in Marrakesh that sells beer and permits you to drink alcohol within its walls. A bit confusing to find, but that’s with almost any place in the Medina.

    I enjoyed my stay at the hotel but the location seems being in a labyrinth. You need to ask to the locals as the taxi can not get there.

    The hostel had a nice cosy atmosphere and the staff are friendly and helpful. The wifi isn’t great. Free breakfasts and towels are always very pleasant. It can get quite hot at night. The roof terrace is a good place to chill. Just be careful about some of the locals in the area near the hostel, some may appear friendly at first but will demand money/become threatening after helping you. The hostel is quiet, if you want to chill out without much noise come here.
