This place was so chill! The main room was really relax and the host was very friendly. The hostel is less than 10 minutes walk to the main square and medina. If you're looking for an amazing dinner or late night snack, walk to the main square where hundreds of restaurants and food carts pitch tents for the night. The...

I'm afraid I didn't enjoy my stay here. There was a cockroach in my room and normally I wouldnt mind but the beds were mattresses on the floor (which I normally wouldn't mind either) so I had visions of cockroaches crawling over my face during the night. Luckily I was able to kill it so I could sleep, but I...

We just loved the hostel! The atmosphere is amazing, and the hosts are too! They are very helpfull to plan your trip around marrakech. Very cozy, the roof terrace is so comfortable and the staff is really nice. We came back after our trip to the desert and enjoyed every minute of our stay.

We stayed 3 nights in a dorm. Compared to other hostels on basic facilities it rates ok- clean bathrooms, good sized rooms, lockers, friendly/helpful staff. I found the beds and pillows comfortable, and having the beds on the ground is actually part of the charm for me. Noise levels were a bit high- bring earplugs. This is unfortunately the case...

I booked 7 nights here during my stay. The layout is ideal for a hostel and the staff are friendly, organise great value trips/excursions, make good breakfast and are really welcoming. The showers are plentiful and have individual boilers to good pressure and heat. If you're a smoker, be prepared that you won't be able to get away from it...

I originally only planned to stay here for a night or two before heading north to Rabat for French lessons. In the end I stayed for two weeks. Part of the reason is because Youssef and Karim were so helpful in helping me find a cheap, good French teacher in Marrakech, and partly because you'll never find such awesome showers...

Hostel is located 5 to 10 min from the square actually easy to find but make sure you know the number of the house since there are no signs on the outside saying that this is the hostel... warm welcome with tea, the owner yussef is a really nice guy who will help you with all kind of things (...

Mama Marrakesh is the perfect place to stay for single travellers. Youssef and Karim are very welcome to every guest so when staying there you directly feel like being part of a bigger family. I really enjoyed the time at Mama Marrakesh, the amazing mint tea, the delicious breakfast and the nice conversations we had. I can defininetly recommend this...

We can also help you set up the adventure of your life with day and night trips to other cities… Go to the beach for the day in Essaouira, take a hike on the trails and waterfalls in the mountains of Ourika Valley or even go camel riding and spend some time in the Sahara… After a few days of adventure, you may want to relax, come back to Mama Marrakech and sense that this hostel is your home away from home. We desire that you to feel that this experience is one you want to tell your friends about or feel safe enough to come back alone, because you are a part of our extended family!
