    Said is a wonderful person. He is trying to do his best every time. The beds are very comfortable and clean. Hostel has a really nice roof that the most people are coming together at nights. Perfect location and very easy to access anywhere. Thank you so much Said and other staff of Waka Waka 😊😊😊

    Such a lovely place to stay! Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 3 nights and had a great time! We met lots of lovely people on the roof terrace where there is a very relaxed and social vibe. The location is perfect and right next to the market with convenient connection to lots of places. The staff were lovely and so accomodating. The facilities were perfect with showers and towels aplenty.

    Waka Waka was a great place to stay in Marrakesh. My friends and I had a wonderful experience at the hostel, enjoying the laid back atmosphere and central location. The hostel was clean and in an amazing location to explore the old city. Said, the manager was super friendly and helpful, giving great deals on the day trips (which are a must if you’re planning on staying for a while). Waka Waka is a great choice for anyone looking for friendly staff and central location in Marrakesh!

    Hostel is in an incredibly central location. Can be quite hard to locate at first, but you quickly get used the surroundings. Said met us at the main road then showed us the way to the hostel and continued this excellent hospitality throughout our stay, even preparing dinner & teaching us a traditional Moroccan song one evening. The hostel amenities are quite basic, but the bathrooms are cleaned regularly and towels, breakfast & lockers are provided for free. Loved our stay, will be back soon.

    Had a great stay in hostel Waka Waka! It’s located right in the centre of old town Marrakesh, only a few minutes walk from the square. The hostel had a great atmosphere. Our host Said was so entertaining and made us all feel really welcome. He cooked everyone in the hostel a delicious meal that we all ate together- better than some of the restaurants tbh. Would definitely recommend hostel Waka Waka for anyone travelling to Marrakesh that wants a bright, fun hostel.
