This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Great relaxed place. rooms are much cleaner than most hostels we have stayed in! no breakfast as advertised on the website but the rest makes up for it. Awesome hot showers a major luxury and the toilets supplied with toilet paper was a real treat for morocco! Bit expensive compared to other cities but average for Essaouira i think. was very quiet at night ( no street or medina noise) but guests tend to party and play music sometimes so make sure this is your thing! Tricky to find initially (taxi drove us from bus station and left us with no directions of medina) but once inside the medina it is sign posted if you get to the right area or a helpful local can show you the way! Overall one of the best hostels in Morocco!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Fantastic little hostel! Unassuming, possibly a little difficult to find, but when you do, it's a hidden oasis right in the middle of the medina. Clean cosy rooms, free wifi, fireplace and a library of guidebooks. Make sure you go up to the roof top for a drink at sunset or check it out at sunrise. Such great value- would definately go back :)
