Location: Excellent. In medina

Riad: Colorful and nicely decorated. They have a common area in the entrance of the riad and a roof terrace. Music is often playing. It was rainy and cold during my stay, so most people were trying to stay warm in the lobby. It is a cramped area with not much seating but it worked out.

There is a toilet in the lobby and another in the shared bathroom space, along with two shower stalls. Although it doesn't seem like enough for the number of people, I never found myself waiting. The shower was hot on the first day and warm on the second. The bathrooms were very clean at all times.

Room: dorms have 2-3 bunk beds. bottom bunk has good amount of head room. Beds are comfortable. They don't come with as thick blankets as I have had in other places but it was okay. There is no heater in the dorm rooms.

Vibe: Very busy and social. Could be anywhere in the world. No Moroccan feel whatsoever. There are signs everywhere advising one what to do/not to do.

Amenities
Wifi is strong and reliable.
Breakfast is offered for an incremental $2.50. There are three options and doesn't look/feel Moroccan which might come as a welcome change for some travelers. On a bright note, they have proper British tea, however, they do not have any Moroccan mint tea on hand.
They will hold luggage after check out time but for a $1 fee. I have never seen anywhere else in Morocco charge for this service.
Laundry is $7, which is quite pricey.
They do not have cutlery to use except for during breakfast.

Staff
Staffed by 3-4 international travelers. The British owner stays in the background (e.g. Kitchen) and doesn't interact with guests.

Overall, the hostel was fine. It delivers on the things it needs to..beds, showers, location, wifi. It just felt more transactional and was missing something less tangible for me.

Stayed: December 2016

I had a shocking week in Morocco and had absolutely no desire to come back until my last stop in Chefchaouen. I arrived at the Riad Baraka and OMG! This is a little slice of heaven in a truely magical city. The hostel is amazing. From the friendly Welcoming Staff to the bloody nice clean hostel. I was shown around by one of the lovely staff, who concluded the tour by showing me the stunning rooftop terrace. I'll never forget the welcoming I got on the rooftop terrace that day. That family vibe along with the "party" side really made my stay that little bit much better. My only regret to this whole experience, was I left the best to last and only booked 1 night as I had to catch a ferry back to Spain. I'll be back!

P.S special shoutout to Workawayers Joe & Cody for all the love and hospitality. First froffie on me in your home towns.
Don't forget to buzz me when you make it down to the world's most liveable city Melbourne so we can get rowdy.

this is by far my favourite place to stay in morocco. the hostel has been renovated to a high quality and the staff are super friendly. they also have double rooms for couples that are private. i would highly recommend staying here.

After the hustle and bustle that is Tangier, our time at Riad Baraka was like stepping into a new world. We have no complaints about our double room with bathroom. The breakfast options were all lovely and priced fair. The owner and her staff run a professional--albeit, laid-back operation--effectively keeping guests happy. They are eager to organize tours and answer any questions about Chaouen. The riad has a very social environment. The cherry on top, however, is the rooftop terrace that provides nice view of the town and the perfect spot for any time of the day.

Delightful indeed.
Came here at 9pm..only to be greeted by young and trendy volunteers who help to run the place ..in a very jovial manner with zest and joie de vivre..
Absolutely clean and spanking place .small but trendy .has 6 rooms .it is cosy and we'll kept ..near the main entrance to the medina...it is a stones throw from all hotspots and souks all around it ..
Lady running the place is a wonderful lady and so are the volunteers ..I liked the concept of workaway :wherein younger people travelling the world ..pick up jobs in other countries to allow themselves to stay longer at a place or earn some money in lieu of the work they put in ..
Totally impressed .
And even had a grand time hobnobbing with the young turks at night in their pretty terrace .
A lively place with young music reverberating .quiet when it is required too.
They charge 25 dirham approximately for breakfast should u wish to have .
They have few rooms with bunk and shared bathrooms which are totally clean and neat .one doesn't wince at the concept of sharing though we had taken a private room with personal bathroom.
A highly recommended place .they even store your luggage should u check out and wish to move ahead for a bit at10 dirham for a day..

Loved this place and wholeheartedly recommend it .
Staff is uber friendly and direct you in and around for more places than u bargained for .

Please stay here without batting an eyelid .)
