Great hostel inside the old town/ medina. Comfy beds, clean, great location and staff members Richard and Kate were very helpful giving me pointers on where to eat and where to find the CTM ticketing booth etc. The hostel has a beautiful rooftop terrace with 360-degree views of Chafchaouen; the call to prayer at sunset sounded incredible whilst sitting up there. (Complete surround sound.) There is also a proper clothesline available if you need to do a lot of washing (something I noticed other Moroccan hostels lacked) & they also provide you with a lock for the locker in your room (large enough for valuables only, a laptop would not fit inside). Loved the tiny hostel turtle living in a pot plant on the terrace. I would stay here again!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Dar el Baraka sits just 70 meters from the Medina's main gate, centrally located to explore Chaouen’s ancient Medina. Dar el Baraka is an original six hundred year old riad converted into a comfortable guest house with six rooms, four bathrooms, various common areas and a stunning blue terrace. There are many corners in the riad to curl up in to watch satellite TV, read, talk, or simply daydream. ... more less
