Me and my friend stayed here it was nice, colourful really friendly and helpful staff. But when I returned from one of the days, my luggage was open and someone had opened a gift I bought and sold was left with pieces missing. This wasn't expensive or anything but it's the value for the person I was going to give... More

The staff is very friendly and they gave us a very good attention, there is a guy called Abdo that he is very cool and he helped us a lot in everything we needed. The Place is very clean and there...

Such a great place - the atmosphere and character of the place is great. The staff really make this hostel incredible. Hamid, a guy who worked at the hostel was incredible. He was super welcoming, friendly and really helpful for everyday "Marrakech" advice and made me feel like the hostel was like a home. 10/10 would recommend!

총 2박 3일간 머물렀었는데, 되게 좋았어요. 가구층마다 샤워실 있어서 샤워하는게 기다린적도 없고, 24시간 스태프가 있어서 저녘늦게돌아와도 괜찮았어요. 도난문제도 문제 없었구요. 아침도 줘서, 만족했어요. I was here 2nights. It was really awesome and i satisfied to staying here.

Wow! I had a horrible experience with hostel Waka Waka from start to finish. I booked and paid for a taxi to pick me up at the airport that never showed up and the hostel refused to refund me, essentially telling me that they needed approval from several people and giving me the run-around. The same thing happened to the... More

What can be said about Waka Waka. It is comfortable and has a cool vibe. The rooftop is great. The breakfast is great and there is always tea on hand. Mehdi and Nawal really made the trip great. They are supper attentive and very fun. I would recommend this place to anyone.

it is not the type of place to call luxurious, but it was the best among all hostels where I stayed in Morocco, the atmosphere & friendly staff helps you befriend everyone there, travellers or staff members. clean rooms & bathrooms, yummy breakfast in the nearby cafe rouge, even maybe guitar nights on roof terrace.

We stayed at the hostel for three nights. They are very unorganized and could not even find our reservation! On top of that, when we came back home and we counted over 93 bed bug bites all over my body alone. My three other friends came back with bed bugs as well. You really get what you pay for.
