The hostel is a cozy and clean place to start travelling in Morocco and enjoy Marrakesh! I was in charge of the reception and the hours were respected most of the time. Keep in mind that, at least in January, there are not that much people in the hostel so it can be very boring. Also, consider that one day off is not enough to go really far from the hostel. Anyway, I got along really well with the other volunteer there and had a great time! The manager can be strict sometimes but it was flexible when I kindly asked him to leave a week before because I had changed my plans. Thank you!

Good location, clean and private rooms. The hostel isn't big so cleaning and reception work is very doable. There wasn't much of a social atmosphere I was looking for. Information about volunteering with 3 or 4 volunteers became that I was only volunteer for two weeks. I felt very confused by this big change. Didn't feel 100% welcome there or comfortable when talking to the owner. I think communication in general and scheduling could be improved. A life changing experience - it gave me a completely different perspective on life. I'm grateful for the experience in general!

Spent almost a month at the hostel and loved my time here! Experienced a bit of culture shock coming to Marrakesh from a quieter area, but the city rly grew on me. Perfect location walkable to restaurants and all the sights in the Medina, the rooftop is the best for enjoying the sun and having meals. The rooms are great, super private beds. Only thing is no laundry facilities. Nice free bfast which you can stretch for lunch as well, and free day trip! The hostel isn't too big so the cleaning and reception work is very doable. Faisal the manager is awesome, super helpful and accommodating.

My experience overall went very well. I felt very welcomed and comfortable. Faical was very helpful, generous, accommodating and had good communication. The volunteer work was very fair and relatively easy. During my stay it wasn't high season so I had lots of free time to relax and unwind after lots of busy travelling. The hostel is very well located and a perfect base to easily explore the heart of Marrakesh and immerse yourself in the culture. Nearby there you can find everything you need. There is plenty of restaurants, markets, atms, SIM card shop, supermarket, pharmacy's etc.
