  • Description


    We are a small hostel in Asillah (Morocco) with 6 rooms and capacity for 26 people. We are 3 friends from school who started the hostel in 2014--now it's just me (Kuby) who lives at and manages the property. I have over 5 years' experience working in hostels. I love to be surrounded by people, learning from them, sharing experiences, having fun at the rooftop and cooking food from all over the world.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As a hostel, cultural exchange is a part of our daily life. Our guests and Workawayers come from all over the world, and often share stories, adventures, international meals, and language.
    What I can offer you as a Moroccan host is warm hospitality, and the opportunity to learn about Moroccan culture including some basic Darija (Moroccan Arabic).

    Workawayers will help with reception, and basic cleaning (mostly laundry).
    We may also have some other projects like painting a mural for the hostel, garden work, etc.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our town, Asilah, is often described a great place to start exploring Morocco. It is a small beautiful beach town, about half an hour south of Tangier. You can come to relax and enjoy delicious Moroccan food, especially sea food, and explore the country markets. Asilah's beautiful medina is unique because it is covered with ephemeral murals that change every year during Asilah Arts Festival. There are several wonderful beaches nearby, including Paradise Beach. Favorite local activities include walking along the serene beach or surfing in the light of the sunset, and meeting local artists and musicians.
