Property Description

Do you want to experience the desert like a local? Are you hoping to find yourself? Need a break from the craziness of Fes or Marrakesh? Don't have the money for an expensive "desert tour," but have plenty of time to enjoy what the desert offers? If your answers are all yes, Le Gout Du Sahara hostel is probably for you. Whether you're traveling alone, as a group, or as a family, there's a place for everyone at Le Gout Du Sahara hostel (Hostel Hassan).
We're not luxurious. We're just a basic hostel with beds, toilets, showers, breakfast, wifi, outlets, and a whole lot of heart.

Get to know our Amazigh hospitality. Our door has been open to travellers since 1994. Arrive morning or night. Have some tea. Take a rest. Plan your stay. Ride a camel into the desert to watch the sunset. Camp in the desert. Sleep under the stars. Hike to Erg Chebbi summit to watch the sunrise. Take a traditional sauna by being buried in the sand. Sandboard down the dunes: Share meals. Life lessons are free of charge.

We're located in the center of Merzouga, less than a two minute walk from the Supratours bus station ( and local taxi stand. It's a very small town, but you can find nearly everything you need. Le Gout Du Sahara is close to all the major attractions of the Erg Chebbi desert. The dunes can be explored by foot at anytime, while the nomad camps and black desert are more easily reached via camel or atv.

WARNING: 'While CTM ends in RISSANI, an additional 15MAD shared taxi will bring you here. Note that 4x4 guides will offer a ride for 10MAD, but they will take you deep into the desert an overcharge for camel tours.

After trekking you can relax on the outdoor terrace just in front of the house, or in the spacious common area. Both are also a great place to plan your next adventure and meet fellow travellers. Reception is open 24/7 and the hostel owner, Hassan, is happy to answer any questions you may have. Desert trips can also be arranged on request.

The hostel is decorated in the traditional Berber style. A mix of private rooms and dorm rooms, along with a bathroom, surround an open courtyard from which you can see the stars at night. In the back, overlooking the west oasis, you'll find a second terrace where it's possible to enjoy a bonfire in the evening. The hostel is clean and well maintained with a friendly informal environment. Wifi, breakfast, tea, and luggage storage before and after check-in are all included.

Cancellations or changes are accepted up to 24 hours prior to arrival. View House Rules

    I cannot say enough positive things about this place. Hassan is AMAZING! The most kind hearted and helpful host I have ever met. He will help you organize yours, camel rides and transportation. The breakfast is massive and there is always coffee or tea available. Definitely stay here if you are coming through Merzouga. You will not regret it.

    I've been travelling for 10 months and this is the best hostel I've stayed in. First 10/10. Hassan is the nicest guy ever and had cooked dinner for me when I arrived at 9pm. Breakfast, tea and snacks all day included in the price. It wasn't busy when I was there so I was given a private room for no extra cost. Hassan will help you book desert tours and has all the advice you need. Hostel is clean and has a great atmosphere and is located near everything in town.

    This was definitely one of my favourite stays in Morocoo. The town is super chill and the hostel is really comfortable, you feel at home straight away. Hassan is one of the friendliest people I've ever met, he's incredibly caring, helpful and really knowledable about the area. He will do anything to make your stay more comfortable, he genuinely just wants to make sure you have a safe and happy stay at his hostel. Also the cats are the cutest!
