Magic man lived up to his name. Everyone who work here makes you feel part of the family straight away. What ever you want to do magic makes it happen!
- Very helpful and easygoing staff - Nice common areas
- The location is a bit hidden - The breakfast was amateur - Cleanliness can be better e.g. no handsoap in the toilets
Lovely lovely host. Greeted me with tea and sweet cake. Very relaxes atmosphere, didn't even ask for money till I reminded him on the second day. Very accommodating, offered to get up at 7am just to walk me to the bus stop so I could book my return ticket to Marrakesh. Made fresh delicious breakfast just for me as I was up at least an hour before everyone else. Absolutely loved the place. Small, clean, cozy.
If you are bothered by smoke - it's an open concept place. Smoke travels. Make sure you book the very top floor (private rooms). Same thing with noise and early bed goers - open concept, communal space is on the bottom floor and voices travel up. Really not a big deal for me - if you are staying in a hostel in a non-private room - don't expect quiet and privacy.
I really enjoyed this hotel , The staff is very nice and helpful and the food is good and worth the money. I felt at home and I strongly recommend this hostel, it's close to everything. I will definitely stay there next time . // Swidich Girl
The manager (best known as MagicMan) is an awesome guy. After 2 weeks in Marocco, he was one of the few people I felt I could completely trust. The hostel is very nice, clean and welcoming. Enjoy MagicMan's voice when he jams in the evening with guitar-like instruments.
I liked everything in the hostel. Nothing to complain.
Warming welcome and cool staff . Also it gives you a whole new experience . I will visit it again with no doubt .
- excellent and friendly staff - wi-fi everywhere (even now on the sunroof) - equipped kitchen - cleanliness - location (center of medina) - supreme customer service (we had to modify our reservartion after the deadline - no problem with that) - welcoming tea all the time :) - some good info from staff and a map of medina
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.
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.
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.
