Property Description

Backpackers Hostel / Camel Tours / Desert Oasis Camp



Whether you're travelling alone, with friends or a family, there's space for everyone to feel safe and welcomed.
We're not luxurious . We offer free breakfast, tea and Wi-Fi.

The hostel takes place in a traditional berber house. It has private rooms as well as dorms that lead to 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 its possible to enjoy a bonfire in the evening.

Our doors has been open to travellers since 1994. You can arrive at any time, day or night. Have some tea. Take a rest. Plan your stay. Ride a camel into the desert to watch the sunset. Hike to Erg Chebbi summit to watch the sunrise. Camp in the desert. Sleep under the stars. Take a traditional sauna by being buried in the sand. Ride sandboards down the dunes. Share meals. Connect with other travellers. Life lessons are free of charge.

We're located at the heart of the town of Merzouga. You can find everything by walking a few seconds: markets, cafes, restaurants, shops and so on. The dunes are 10 minutes walk from the hostel and reachable at anytime, while the nomad camps and black desert are more easily reached via camel or ATV.

After trekking in the desert, you can relax in the outdoor terrace or in the spacious common areas. Its the perfect place to meet and exchange with fellow travellers. Reception is open 24/7 and the hostel owner, Hassan, is happy to answer any questions you may have.

Desert trips can be arranged on request. Luggage storage is also included before you check in and after you check out.

WARNING: While CTM ends in RISSANI, an additional 15MAD shared taxi will bring you to the hostel.

Note that 4x4 guides will offer a ride for 10MAD, but they will take you deep into the desert and overcharge for camel tours.

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

Amazing Stay! Hassan is a great host! The hostel has a super relaxed vibe. Breakfast and dinner were included!! Hassan cooked for us every night! The facilities were also great. Everything clean, comfortable, hot showers, washing machine… Definitely recommended! Hassan also organized an overnight desert tour and my bus ride back to Marrakech for me. All in all couldn’t have been better. Not to mention that the price is very low for such a value. Go to Merzouga!

This is not a hostel this is home. Best hostel in Morocco without doubt, Hassan makes this place home in so ways, he'll help you with anything you need I stayed here 4 nights and left to realized that my favorite and happiest place in Morocco was here so I came back from marrakech for another 6 nights. Please don't book tours from Marrakesh just come here and Hassan will arrange everything for you plus you will definitely want to stay longer, you can walk everyday to the dunes is amazing!
