  • Description


    Hello, my name is Abdellah. With my wife Hanan and our three children we live at about 2.5 km out of Agdz on the road to Zagora. Together with my family and the help of my niece Fatima we run a hostel. The building was lived by the nomads by the end of the 16th century and has been lovingly restored. On the other side of the calm road, not far from our hostel, is our garden. There are date palms, apricot and olive trees, as well as patches, where we plant herbs and vegetables. The garden is worked after the principles of permaculture.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You are welcome to live with me and my lovely family and share everyday life with us. You'll be having the pleasure to taste the marvellous dishes prepared by my wife and niece (Tajine, Couscous, Crêpes). If you are interested, I can show you about the ways of permaculture or tell you a lot about the region - the magnificient Valley of Draa - because I am also working as a tourist guide for hiking tours. And if you are curious to learn some Berber, I'd love to teach you some basics, because I am of Berber origin.

  • Help


    Our hostel, as well as our garden are in a state of consistent improvement, so there are many opportunities for you as a workawayer to give us a hand. We could need people experiencend in the field of construction, such as e.g. bricklayers, since we are about to rise another building right next behind the hostel. For the garden we would need people who are interested in the ways of permaculture, help us to maintain the beds and repair/evolve the irrigation system. Furthermore there is always help needed in the hostel.

  • Accommodation


    You will stay in one of the rooms of the hostel, which can be locked. The shared bathroom, which you can use, is just next to your room in the "patio". Usually we prepare three meals a day for ourselves and would like to share them with you. There will be breakfast in the morning, lunch at around noon (often Couscous or Tajine) and a rather light dinner in the evening, such as Berber Omelette. It might be important to know that, because we run a hostel, we provide some products for our guests, which we do not consume ourselves and therefore can't provide for you. This concerns mineral water, orange juice and milk.
