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!

Please note:

Cancellation policy: 48 hours before arrival. In case of a late cancellation or No Show, you will be charged the first night of your stay.

Riad Dia is a traditional Moroccan house with the buzzing vibe of a hostel. It's set around a sunny courtyard with a swimming pool and fruit trees in the middle. With loads of terraces to relax on as well, you can sit and drink tea, or sample flavoured shisha with your new travelling friends. Rather stay busy? We organise activities ranging from cooking classes to local Gnaoua music nights. Breakfast's included, so you'll have plenty of energy for the day ahead!


We're not sure what's more colourful, our hostel or Marrakesh's main square Jemaa el-Fna. Since it's only a 4-minute walk from Riad Dia, we'll leave you to make up your own mind. You can get a freshly made juice from one of the stalls and watch the traders haggle. To get to us from Marrakesh Menara Airport, catch bus L19. It takes less than 15 minutes and you'll be dropped off at Koutoubia Mosque, an 8-minute walk from us. Our entryway's right by a spice shop.

Rooms and Dorms

We have private rooms and mixed dorms with linen and towels included at Riad Dia. If you want to cool off after a walk around the city's pretty Majorelle Garden, come back and sit under the air con. You'll also have your own locker for storing your bags. With cushions scattered all over our communal areas, guests have been known to nap outside the rooms, too.

Extras and activities

There's a kitchen on site, so you can make like a Moroccan and cook up some couscous. You can also order yummy meals in our café. The travel agency that runs our hostel has loads of trips around Morocco, from stints in the Sahara to quad biking at Lalla Takerkoust Lake. If you're more into DIY travel, use our free Wi-Fi – and tips from our friendly staff – to come up with your own itinerary. We have free city maps to help you along the way.

    Hostel Dia is just the best. Full of colour and so much character! And the staff they care! Youssef is a legend checking on me and my sister when we were violently ill from something we’d eaten before arriving. Even bring us water and juice when we needed it. All the guys here are so nice, getting you with a give smile and arriving with mint tea just when you feel like it! Big love too this happy place. I’ll be back

    This hostel is the best place you can stay at in Marrakech! The staff is so helpful, they helped me with good places to eat and the buses to get around the city! I even forgot my lock and the staff lended me one for my stay! It’s also perfectly located, very near the square! I also met a bunch of people and felt safe as a female solo traveler! I highly recommend this hostel!

    Did the 3 day Sahara tour for €80. Was decent for the price, but there were plenty of hidden costs with tipping guides, limited pricey lunch options etc. Also worth considering that the camel ride is only a short distance into the Sahara. Overall a great experience though

    We really enjoyed this hostel. The layout, common area and atmosphere of the hostel were all great. The staff were really helpful booking a tour out to the desert. The showers and rooms were good but not amazing, however definitely great value for money and exceeded our expectations.

    While staying at the Riad Dia the staff made me and 2 friends (all young females) feel extremely safe and comfortable. They offered advice on things to do and answered any questions we had about Marrkech! The bathrooms were not clean/new, but they did the job. There was also one 2 functioning so this led to waiting in line for the bathroom almost every time. The location was perfect and the atmosphere was very welcoming and fun!
