  • Description


    We are a hostel in the heart of the souk at the Marrakech Medina. My name is Muhammed, and we run a young and energetic hostel, newly opened in December 2016. We have 32 beds for guests in our traditional Riad with a rooftop terrace overlooking the medina.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Being in the heart of Marrakech you will be able to experience the souk (market), and true Morrocan culture.
    You will eat the best Tagine in the souk made by our resident Berber chef, welcomer and backflipper named Redouan, and plenty of delicious Morrocan mint tea.
    You can also learn many languages here, French, Arabic, and even Berber!
    There will be many opportunities to explore and get lost in the souk and try the many exotic market foodwares and have fun bartering with the local traders for souvenirs.
    We can also help to organise your trips to the desert, roadtrips to other villages where you will learn about the nomadic Berber life and we trust you will have a life changing experience here!

  • Help


    Come join us and become a part of our hostel community as you greet guests from around the world and assist with everyday odd jobs. There may be some cleaning and bed making required when the cleaning lady has time off. Otherwise the next requirement is to chill out and meet new people, enjoy the colourful market less than 5 minutes from our hostel, or on our many sunny days sunbathe on the rooftop.

    We are looking for one fun workaway helper willing to pitch in with anything and everything!

    What else ...

    On your time off you can relax in our quietly located hostel not too far from the main action. You can discover the medina, wander around the local neighbourhood and travel to the desert or the beautiful Morrocan coast.

    You can get here from the Marrakech Menara airport by bus number 19 to the Jemaa el Fna square right outside the souk, or by taxi.

    Welcome to the family!
