It was super fun. Everyone at the hostel was super accomodating and Usama, Wafaa, Yacine, Zacharia and Abdul made me feel right at home when I arrived. I met loads of great people here as well that I stay in contact with. Free Breakfast and Friday Couscous is always an added bonus. This hostel is great if your a beginner or intermediate surfer the free rental save a lot of stress and worry. The work is super relaxed and it can range from Reception which I did to working in the kitchen and cafe. Can't beat the sunsets from the rooftop either

The hostel was my first volunteering gig & I can't imagine a better place to do it! The staff was super friendly, chatty & very patient with me. I was mostly helping in the kitchen, waitressing & cleaning the dishes. The work was quite easy. Working times were alternating with another volunteer & they didn't mind if we switched our shifts or started a little later/earlier. On the rooftop you'll always find someone to chat with, so you'll never be alone. Over all a great experience that I would never want to miss!

I had an amazing time at the hostel! The staff is very welcoming and made me feel like part of the family from day one. I enjoyed life at the hostel as well as outside at the beach and in the Medina of Essaouira. I will definitely come back. Thanks to everyone, Alix

Alix was a great volunteer, unfortunately she couldn't stay longer with us but for sure we would have her back. She's always with a smile on her face ready to face any challenge, with a very positive atitude on life and work. She did mainly reception and bar work and had no problem at all doing it since first day 1. Thank you for all your help Alix !!!
