Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Pension souika is ideally located in the most historical and central area of Chouen, (Souika neighborhood), within a walking distance to all major attractions, and interesting spots of Chaouen.

Chefchaouen or Chaouen, as it is often called by Moroccans, is a popular tourist destination given its proximity to Tangier and the Spanish border. The name simply refers to the shapes of the mountain tops that tower over the town, that look like the two horns (Chaoua) of a goat. 'Chef Chaouen' literally means 'look at the horns'. In this tiny mountain village in order to host the summer influx of European tourists. One distinction possessed by Chefchaouen is its blue-rinsed houses and buildings, a tradition that comes from the town's former Jewish population.

Souika is newly opened provides hotel standard but in a

traditional Andalusian house in the old part of town, the Medina.

It has 13 spacious rooms, all with new beds.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The guy that checked us in was not friendly, AT ALL. He also never even told us where the bathrooms were, we had to search for them ourselves and later discovered there were more than one!

If it weren't for him, I would have given the hostel full stars :o)

Probably the best hostel I stayed in, in Morocco. The hostel is situated perfectly near in the medina, near the main square and Kashba. Helpful staff, and you could even go to your room first to unpack, before having to arrange everything, quite a relaxed ambiance.
The room was nice, good beds, enough space, though a bit noisy. As the room was more or less next to the bathroom we could hear all sounds from over there. The roof terrace is nice to spend some time on, accompanied by some tea. Nice place to watch the sun set in the mountains.
The only small downside of the hostel was that they were not always prepared for people having breakfast 'early' (around 8.30-9 am), so they sent us to the square that time.

This is definitely a place I'd go to again.

A very friendly staff, clean rooms and showers. The breakfast was not very impressive, but it was included in the not-so-high price, so the general opinion is very, very positive.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We stayed on the roof, which was fantastic value for money, but VERY communal. Everyone very friendly, but can be a bit hectic! Don't expect too much sleep on the roof, depending on who is up there with you! The only hostel in Morocco that we stayed in that offered free WiFi, so brilliant! Also nice fans & sofa areas to relax in, plus a little kitchen. Would recommend being 1st in the queue for showers! Might be worth going for your own room to get the most out of your stay here. Overall, enjoyed our stay!

Really good accommodation for the price. Our room was clean and bright, and the Pension is located in the Chefchaouen medina, very close to the main square where the restaurants are. A bit hard to find initially but a few shopkeepers pointed us in the right direction. The kitchen seemed quite good- we didn't use it as the restaurants are so close and affordable. The staff were great- very friendly and helpful, even booking our bus tickets to Fes for us. The shared bathroom wasn't great- not the cleanest at times (though it was cleaned everyday- there were just a lot of people using it so it got dirty quickly) and the shower hose was broken and had only intermittent hot water. Lots of common areas so a great place to meet other people. OK wifi connection in the common areas. Guests are also able to use the hostel's PC. Towels are provided for free. You can buy a nice breakfast for 20 dirham - toasted baguette, cream cheese, jam, fresh orange juice, coffee- and its available any time you get up which is great. Very nice terrace with fantastic view of the town and surrounding mountains. Our main complaint would be that there was no heating and it was very cold when we stayed- even with extra blankets. Would be lovely in Summer though. Would go back.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I think pension Souika is a perfect place to be in Chefchaouen
thanks to all staff my sojourn in the riad was just great
rooms are confortable and clean ( Too bad they don't have toilette inside)
but above all is the freedom that they give you to "enjoy" the hostel that make you feel at home (or better)
And if you like to enjoy the mountains like i do they will help ( MUSTAPHA)
to arrange a tour thru it
not to forget is a 2 min from the central square
