Reviewed 19 June 2016

Lovely hostel in the medina with a friendly, relaxed vibe. The staff are very kind and welcoming, especially Simoun (thank you for sharing your fish with me for dinner!). I stayed for two nights during Ramadan, when it was not busy - perfect for a peaceful getaway in Essaouira. Rooms are a bit shabby but worth the price. Evenings get a little chilly - bring a sweater.

My stay at this hostel was okay. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Two negatives, though. Our toilet did not flush. We were not there for very long so it was not a big issue, but it could've been. Second, next to our door, were two medium windows, one on top of the other. We were able to close the bottom one, but not the top one no matter how hard we tried. This meant that someone could open the top one, unlock the bottom and come into our room as the windows were large enough for someone to get through. This was not secure at all. Having the window slightly open also meant that we could hear all the noise that was going on in the rest of the hostel which was a bit annoying.

This is the kind of place that you look for. It feels like home from the moment you walk in. The staff (and the people I met there) were very friendly and willing to help out in any way. Good standards and price.

Room Tip: Don't forget to visit the rooftop!

Have stayed here three times on two separate visits and found it on every occasion a clean, welcoming and friendly Moroccan experience. Fully recommend, excellent terrace, great facilities and wonderful staff who can help you get the best out of your stay in Essaouira. They have always provided free mint tea on arrival, a welcoming boost after the inevitable rigours of travel, provided party instruments and musicians on occasion and every time I stay it feels like a great, safe home-base from which to explore the city from and chill out in at night meeting a host of other eclectic travellers. Shared dinners and communal evenings are frequent but the place does calm at night so you can get some rest past midnight. Unless its the summer Brahim tells me, in which case its parties on the roof every night. A must-stay in Essaouira in my mind!!!!

Friendly staff even walked us to the beach and a the surf school we were trying to find. We got a great price and a nice dorm room. The hostel is clean and has a nice terrane to relax on. We were invited to group dinners and the rooms were quiet at night.
