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. Cheap price and you can use freewifi also breakfast. Loved it and the staff were so kindness. Yusef and the manager Mariam(?), they...

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...

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.

The hostel staff is not very friendly and inattentive. The beds are small, and since the rooms are connected to common areas, it tends to get loud. The entire place smells like smoke, so beware if you are sensitive to the smell. As another reviewer mentioned, the bathrooms are dirty and always wet from the shower. You can find other...

We stayed in Hostel Waka Waka for four nights and are so happy we chose this hostel. The hostel has loads of character and is a throughly enjoyable place to chill while you are exploring Marrakech. Abdelhamid and Nabil are excellent, funny entertaining, respectful hosts and are so helpful. Breakfast is always included. Definitely recommended.
