Property Description

Are you looking for positive vibes, a relaxed atmosphere, comfortable space, great music and a piece of art? Then you are at the right place! The Chill Art staff is here to show you how to chill to the maximum! We are professionals in improving the art of chilling and will help you master your skills!

The secret behind Chill Art’s vibes is simple:

We are not at work, we are at home.

We are not a team, we are a family.

We put passion into each centimeter of the house, each meal served, each word said, each song sang, each decoration made.

We love the place, we love what we do, we love each other and we love all of you!

The friendly Chill Art staff will welcome you with open arms, guitar in one hand, paint brush in the other. If you’re an artist, you’re more than welcome to leave your mark on our place!

We put our hearts into creating a unique space to meet the needs of couples, families, solo travelers or big groups by providing two private double-bed rooms with a small comfortable living room, two small dorms, each with one bunk-bed (private bathroom in one of them), three dorms with four, six and eight beds, and a small apartment situated on the terrace with a double-bed room, living room, bathroom and kitchen.

You will love the laid-back atmosphere in our comfy living rooms, equipped with musical instruments and a sound system for your listening pleasure. We have a projector and a big screen so you can enjoy movie nights almost like being in the cinema. Resting on our terrace will enhance your Chilling Skills - it’s one of the highest points around, with a breathtaking view of both the Atlantic ocean and the city. A fully equipped kitchen situated on the ground floor provides everything you need for culinary experiments.

We love spending time with our guests! Cooking and having breakfast together is one of our biggest pleasures and our cooking skills are already famous among our previous guests. But most of all, we are here to teach you the real Art of Chilling. You will never be the same after spending time in Chill Art!

Live music, delicious restaurants and the fishing port, colorful art galleries, infinite shops with Moroccan handmade goods, hammams, cozy cafés.

    The hostel’s location is quite convenient, the passage leading to the hostel is a bit dark, but it is safe. The decoration of the hostel is artistic. The staff are helpful, but sometimes are not around the front desk. The upperbed of the hostel has no rack, for me it is a bit dangerous to sleep at night, I was afraid to fall at night. There are two cats in the hostel.

    The entrance to the hostal is obscure and for a solo travel it could be scary but have a good location overall. I saw the front door open several times with no one in reception that’s why I think it wasn’t really secure. The place is beautifully decorated and has a great terrace.
