As mentioned below, it was one of the best places we visited in Morocco, since Youssef is such an amazing host and cook as well! Do try his food, it's delicious. The rooms are clean, there are ACs that warm up the... More

We enjoyed our time at Chez Youssef. It is a great budget option for overnight accommodation. The service and friendliness of staff was excellent. And the rooms had hot water and a working heater/air conditioner.

We stayed at Merzouga for two nights - one night at Chez Youssef and one night in the desert (great trip organized by Youssef). We really enjoyed the great hospitality and attention to detail, the delicious homemade food for lunch and dinner and an incredible breakfast. Very recommendable!

We visited 6 cities in Morocco, and we found the best host and food in Merzouga at Chez Youssef. The food is home made, very tasty and plentiful. The house if very pleasant and offers an intimate moroccan experience. But the best thing about this place is Youssef himself. He's a very pleasant and friendly man, who will do his... More

A really really great place- beautiful and really luxurious for the price- it was way more than I have been used to! And Youssef is fantastic, really friendly and caring and takes a lot of pride in his hotel! (and quite rightly in his breakfast too). I arrived with a friend a day early with nothing booked and he really... More

I stayed at Chez Youssef for three days and had a great experience. It was the pit of the off season and there were only two other people at the hotel, but even so I think I got a good sense of how the place is. Youssef is a natural for his job. He is courteous, helpful and considerate of... More

I stayed by Chez Youssef last week. Chez Youssef is an adobe house, which will be a perfect place to take a breath during your trip. It's a nice place, that you will find very clean and will be a fresh place to rest. You will have very good rooms, breakfast and meals. But the best of all is who... More

I have stayed recently in chez Youssef, and I loved this place. It is an adobe traditional nice house in Merzouga, very closed to the dessert dunes.
