Property Description

What is Riad Dia? Quite simply, it is the house that you may have once designed in your head and though 'no, its just not possible I could ever live in a place like this'. An incredible traditional riad with the atmosphere of a backpackers hostel, Riad Dia is located less than a minute from the main square Place D'Jeema el Fna. With a lovely swimming pool in the communal courtyard - colorful, sunny and social, lots of dorm rooms (and these are no ordinary dorms - they are seriously luxury), and several terraces to relax on, sunbathe, put the world to rights.

The riad is traditional, but the colors are bright and wild! It is an inside out, upside down, topsy curvy house. The gardens are indoors - you can even do some fruit picking). Sit among our courtyard gardens with fellow travelers and new friends; make crazy plans for your travels - they will definitely become realities. Or, don't make crazy travel plans! Just enjoy our unique atmosphere over tea and shisha.

Groups are more than welcome. We have significant experience with all kinds of groups, and it really is the perfect space in Marrakesh for a trekking group, photography class group or student group.

Riad Dia is a little contrast of a riad. It is perfect for independent travellers looking for adventure and a place to relax and at the same time it is a one-stop shop for your entire Moroccan trip. We can help you with every aspect of your trip and you don't even need to leave the swimming pool!

    The stay was amazing. Right in the city centre and really enjoyable (especially for the price). The experience was completed by the service given. Especially Junes who runs the place. He was always happy to help and created a really great, friendly atmosphere. As well as playing some amazing guitar in the evenings and providing the tunes.

    Possibly the best place I've ever stayed at on holiday. An amazing location and great way to meet other travellers from all around the world and make new mates! The staff ate absolute legends! Big shout out to Younis, Yousef and Mouad! So friendly and accommodating! Younis is a great desert blue guitarist! I highly recommend this Riad to everyone!!

    I absolutely loved my stay at Riad Dia! It’s a very social hostel with wonderful staff that are very accommodating and knowledgeable about the city. I felt very welcome during my stay. It’s a perfect hostel for a solo traveler hoping to make some new friends in a new city. I highly recommend this hostel and will be staying there again if I come back to Marrakech.

    Such a great place! It is one of the most social hostels I've ever been to, be prepared to get to know practically everyone there. The staff truly care about you and your experience.

    Staff was great, as well as the location. Very social and nice to have a rooftop area to chill. Unfortunately not nearly as clean as it seems from the reviews and pictures. Also the bunks were super rickety. You could feel it fairly drastically if the other person even just turned on their side.

    Bathrooms were pretty gross and I saw a couple of cockroaches but other than that its a fine place to stay right by the main square for super cheap. Have a nice terrace to smoke in too

    Everything was pretty good but there are only 3 toilets in the whole place so you have to wait so long for a shower, especially in the morning or night. Also, my dorm had 12 beds and only 2 power outlets so it is really hard to charge stuff.
