Best hostel Ive every stayed at , The staff was particularly great and friendly, very helpful , everything went good .
Hot shower and clean rooms.
The staff is really slowly, we spent 1hour waiting the breakfast.
Very kind people. I feel like home when I arrive there. It was my fourth stay in the Youth Hostel, and it's so nice that everyone recognize me and welcome me so warmly when I arrive. What I love is the easy atmosphere. You really can relaxe.
Beautiful place, friendly staffs, clean and nice atmosphere
value, lovely helpful, cheerful staff, comfortable bed, always hot water,plenty of breakfast,i hope 2go 2gnaoua festival next year, so will use the hostel again.
i had a wonderful stay at This Hostel . It was super-clean, comfortable, and the owner looked after us throughout our stay. The Hostel has good wifi, ample hot water, and the roof terrace is lovely. The shared bathrooms are the cleanest I've seen anywhere in the world. The place was a little hard to find at first, as the taxi dropped me off at the wrong gate , so be sure to ask for Bab Marrakech, as it's very easy from there.
Friendly helpful staff. Great location
Amazing people who run the place, amazing location. I definitely plan to come back here!!
Nothing! Everything was truly perfect.
The stuff makes me feel like at home. I realy enjoyed my stay at Hostel Essaouira, its The Best Hostel in essaouira ,The whole stuff was extremely cool and nice , Brahim MagicMan And Abdalla , Hope I can come back soon and I will Hardly recommend every one to come here!
Beautiful location, very nice staff, felt like home and will definitely come back!
Great location and stuff. Highly recommended!
Wish we had more than one night there.
The staff were so sweet - so amazing. They constantly offered tea and were very friendly and helpful e.g . Gave advice about buses and dinner. Created a relaxed atmosphere. Really enjoyed my stay! Great value for money. Highly recommend.
The toilet got blocked - perhaps they just need a sign to remind people not to flush toilet paper.
Convenient location, in the middle of the Medina, but away from busy and crowded streets. The owner is friendly and welcoming. I like that it has lockers and the owner even provides a lock if you don't have one. They also provide a key to enter the room.
There was a bad smell in our room, still bearable though.
Staff helpful, room clean, wi-fi is good and easy to find. When you arrive by Supratours.
Really nice place and amazing staff
The staff was particularly great and friendly, very helpful and a good laugh
not much really, only that I couldn't spend long enough there!
Very friendly staff, excellent terrace, well located and quiet. Best economic option in Essaouira.
everything is best best food,best service,best design managers: hafid,souad,simo and magicman special thanks to Ibrahim and Russian man;) Everyone go this hostel!!!!
The roof (including the kitchen), the breakfast, the locks in the doors of the rooms and inside them.
The run out of paper in the toilets, the rude behaviour of one member of the staff with one of our friends.
The stuff makes you feel like at home.
Best hostel Ive every stayed at. Clean and awesome atmosphere
Nothing much, Signs were a little worn out directing to the place.
Nice terasse/ lounge
Cold shower and fleas in the upper room
Very small room with the only micro-window in the toilet - unable to open. You watch a person sitting on a toilet while lying in your bed and vice versa. The toilet ain´t flushing, there was no hot water in the sink and no cold water in the shower. Very dirty and disgusting. Dirty beds had no sheeting and the stuff wasn´t able to find any if he was asked. Promised that he will bring it while he will find it, but he didn´t. There was a loud music from downstairs desturbs much so it was unable to fall asleep. Sould be breakfast included. In fact nothing. We had a reservation for four days, but we left for another place - nice and clean with much more better price. While leaving, the stuff was very rude. The worst experience in Morocco.
friendly staff, great atmosphere for socializing and a terrace in the morning)
The people are awesome friendly and make you feel very at home; it is a very warm place; easy going; loved my stay there one of my best:
