    we arrived during the night and we were welcomed very warmly.Chez Youssef is a nice place to stay if you want to spend the night in a very busy city center like Merzouga.

    There is no view from any part of the building

    Even though my bus was late, Hamid was there to greet me and gave me mint tea and snacks while I checked in, and even offered me dinner. As it was low season, I was the only guest. Hamid provided a lovely breakfast and dinner in the courtyard. He organised a sunset camel ride to the dunes and tried to organise other tours, but there were non available as it was low season, and it would have been too expensive to go alone.

    Merzouga is a small town and may not had an ATM. I was there on a weekend - the post office was closed and that seemed to be the only place to get cash if necessary.

    This small (4 bedroom) guesthouse is the perfect place to stay in Merzouga. Hamid the manager was attentive and anticipating my every need. From inviting me to park my motorcycle in the courtyard, collecting bottled water for me on his moped, to ensuring his wife prepared an excellent vegetarian meal for my night out in the desert. Although there is not a great deal to do in Merzouga, I ended up staying an extra (4th) night, just to see the morning sun on the dunes from the roof terrace again. Although he doesn't live on the premises, he was there to prepare food at meal times, and called in through out the day to ask if I needed anything. I left reluctantly after 4 days feeling I had stayed with a favorite relative more than in a guesthouse.

    Very beautiful berber house! The breakfast was also great! The host was very nice and helpful! We booked a desert trip through him, and was great!

    Small tip: do not take the dessert "caramel cream" from the menu, as it is made from pouding powder. :-D

    Hamid and his family welcomed us warmly to their guest house in the desert It is at the edge if Erg Chebbi and a short walk to be on the dunes directly We saw groups being led out by camel to stay the night in Berber tents but we did not opt for that We ate dinner at the Chez and it was excellent as well as the breakfast There is a sweet sitting area with a fountain and the Chez is decorated nicely with a desert and Berber feeling We were driving a rental car and really appreciated all the signs to led us there

    Spent a total of 3 nights Chez Youssef, of which one in a nomad tent in the dunes (a fabulous and highly recommended trip arranged by Hamid). The breakfast is to die for, as is the dinner prepared by Hamid's family. The ecologically heated water provides for a great shower.

    The rooms are basic and an intermediate cleaning would have been appreciated.

    Nice room, nice decoration, excellent breakfast. The owner is very gentle and professional. I recommend the dinner too. His sister is a great cook!

    There is only one towel for each person and a smaller one for both. Not really important.. Just a detail...

    Hamid was a great host and helped us book our desert trip which was unforgettable. The facilities of chez youssef were fab, especially the shower which was better than mine at home! The breakfast we were made in the morning was huge so we never needed any lunch. The best part about the place was the quiet courtyard with the little bubbling fountain which attracted a lot of desert sparrows.

    Nothing at all. It was perfect.

    Staying at Chez Youssef was the highlight of our stay, so much in fact that we booked another night just to relax. Beautiful Riad, and Hamid could not have been more helpful. Anything we needed he ensured we had, also helping us book a tour into the desert with a great guide Would highly recommend

    "You are at home" said Hameed from Chez Youssef. And we felt ourselves so! We were really tired after road to Merzouga,but tasty dinner, hot shover and comfy room refund our power. We were there only two nights (3 jan till 5 jan).I recommend to stay there little longer. *nice and helpful staff( more then helpful) *tasty food *comfy room *air conditioning (it were quite warm at night) *good price

    Staff - Hamid was a great host. He made sure we could get every comfort we needed in the desert. Facility - it was clean and cozy. Hot water, Wifi, heater, Considering the place was located in the desert, I called it 'Oasis' Breakfast - wonderful. Served warm every morning. This is only place I tasted 'Date extract' which tasted like chocolate.. Restaurant -We ate their restaurant during our entire stay and that was one of the best food we had.

    Hamid was a very friendly host, the Riad is a basic guesthouse that was all we needed for one night in the desert. Had working wifi, heating and the hottest water we had.

    Dinner was nice but cold due to a misunderstanding of the time we wanted it.

    Very nice guesthouse next to the dunes os Merzouga. The heating was useful in november. Hamid was very helpful, he arranged a camel ride at sunrise for us. Here we had the very best breakfast during our stay in Morocco. (With Hamid’s mom’s very tasty homemade date juce...)

    Hamid was very helpful the time we were at Chez Youssef. We changed our schedule at least 3 times because we were sick but it was totally no problem for him. He took good care of us. In the end I was really surprised because he didn't want to charge the room for the last night when my sick friend stayed there and I went to the desert. I think that says enough about him and the place. I really liked the atmosphere and understand why everybody is so enthusiastic about this place. Breakfast is great! The desert tour is good value and I really enjoyed it. I would recommend this place to all of my friends an family.

    Chez Youssef was the best place we had during our trip in Morocco. Hamid was very nice and made us feel like home. Also the breakfast and diner were very good. We stayed for two nights of which we spend one amazing night in the desert. The next day he arranged a 4x4 desert trip which was also great.

    We are really satisfied with our stay at Chez Youssef, because the staff was so friendly and made us feel like at home. We booked only 1 night with breakfast and we also ate dinner there, which was the best meal we had in Morocco. They organised our sunset camel trip, which was great and quite cheap (15 eur per person). There is also a roof terrace, which is great.

    We found a cocroach in our room, but that's probably because we left our windows open, otherwise everything was clean.
