    Hostel staff was extremely nice. The hostel is located in the heart of the Medina so it is easy to access many things. The hostel also had a great atmosphere that was laid back and provided opportunity to meet people. I very much enjoyed my time there.

    Great crowd! Met lots of travelers & Moroccans on holiday. Easy location, clean rooms, good breakfast (paid extra for eggs). We stayed in a private 2-bed that had a window & then a mixed dorm without a window. Room with window was definitely a nicer temperature at night. Heads up - there’s a fixed taxi rate throughout the city so you should only pay 7 dirham from the bus station to the gates of the old town, not per person, per car.

    The ChillArt hostel is a very nice renovated riad in the centre of Essaouira medina! You can enjoy the soft cushions of the ground floor or the sun on the rooftop looking at the waves and birds. The staff is very caring and friendly, people keep returning and it's not a coincidence. Special thanks to Pierre, Nadia, Hamid & Mohamed for all those nice moments! Will definitely come back!

    Private room was a little claustrophobic, but had an excellent ensuite bathroom. Staff was very helpful and someone was always available to answer questions. Definitely a young but easy going crowd. Great location. Room could have been cleaner and smelled faintly of cat urine from the street below.
