    This is the perfect hostel to experience Marrakech in. The location is superb and right near everything you need. The rooms and showers are clean and the hostel has an authentic feel to it. There are also two tortoises on the terrace. But the highlight of this hostel is the staff. Hamid made our stay at Marrakech so much easier and more enjoyable. He went out of his way to help us with whatever we needed and he made us laugh all the time. Highly recommended this hostel!

    I have a feeling that most of these positive reviews are fake. This is probably one of the worst hostels I’ve ever stayed at and I have travelled Asia, South America and India all through hostels. For starters, A few people in my room ended up with bed bugs. Another issue is that there were only 3 washrooms (room with 1 toilet and shower together) for the full hostel and it consistently lead to long lines (which was horrendous when nature called). There were many more problems which I can’t fit.
