    It's in the middle of the medina

    The room was dirty, didn't want to use the showers just looking at them. Our duvet was dirty and the room smelled weird. Had a swollenface next morning. Too expensive for that experience!

    Quite cold in February and not very clean

    The riad/hostel is in the heart of medina, minutes away from all tourist need. It is very funky riad with crazy great boy working there and some interesting people.

    Actually for that money I can not say anything negative. If there were some things they are minor.

    The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was very chilled out - there was always someone sitting in the nice big common area/lounge and the candles by the fountain at night were a really nice touch. The Riad is easy enough to find - we walked all the way from the bus station - it's in a little alley off one of the main tourist streets (with a sign) so well located and only 10mins walk through town to the beach (you get a free local map on arrival). Our double room with private bathroom was clean and comfortable enough (although the big bed barely fit the room - and the toilet/sink/shower were all in one open space). After a couple of nights I also stayed 1 night in one of the dorms, which were quite crowded but the bunk beds were sturdy and comfortable. The breakfast (bread + jam +pancake + tea) was simple but freshly served and similar as elsewhere in Morocco. Wifi was available on the ground and 1st floor and there was a book exchange and a kitchen. The staff organised common dinners in the evening which were cheap and very tasty (chicken couscous was very nice!). It was also no problem to get a fresh towel or extra toilet paper - you just have to ask and the staff help straight away. Overall a great budget place.

    Our private bathroom was great but its true that the shared showers were very basic and could have done with a better clean/a fix up. Although there was someone at the house all the time, the fact that you did not receive a front door key meant that often we could hear people knocking loudly on the door (below our window). The walls of our room also were a bit damp but there were no bad smells. Compared to other places we stayed this was less of a 'Riad' (although equally traditional and beautiful) and more of a hostel because of the bigger shared rooms but that made it easier to to meet people and it was more sociable than smaller Riads. Overall a good cheap and chilled place.

    I really liked the hostel it was so good They helped us I never never forget that.

    I think the kitchen should be more equipped.

    The central location in the souk.

    Where shall I start?! Despite the staff trying their best to be helpful the whole hostel just needs better management and MUCH MORE CLEANING! I was in an 7 bed dorm but an extra mattress (child sized) had been squashed in to allow for another guest so three beds were pushed together and you had to climb over them to get into bed. I felt this was greedy and totally unacceptable. The riad is lovely but in need of a regular deep clean. Everything feels a bit grotty. The upstairs showers were disgusting, the smelt of garbage and fish guts to the level I almost vomited when I went in the first time. There were no shower heads, just a pipe, hardly any lights and it just felt so horrible to go in there. Toilets also smelt and never had toilet roll. The common areas were nice but as Essaouira was so busy there were up to 7 people dossing down in there for cheap accommodation. This meant you shared breakfast with snoring and smelly bodies. Breakfast was poor, coffee and bread and sometimes a cold crepe. Next time I would pay a few euros extra to have a nicer place to stay as this just wasnt worth it.

    Good atmosphere, friendly helpful staff. Central location for backpackers wanting an affordable stop in a beach town.

    Need better signage like most medina businesses.
