Central location with good flexible facilities and excellent staff. Staff were available and consistently willing to go out of their way to help travellers. Fun and friendly atmosphere throughout the stay and definitely value for money. Added bonuses were the breakfast and excellent 'Berber whiskey'.

The place was clean and had a lot of character. The owners were AMAZING -- I don't remember the main guy's name, but he and Antonio were incredibly entertaining and accommodating. We forgot to let them know that we would be arriving very very late, and when we arrived, they had given our beds to some walk-ins (totally our bad, it was like 3am & we were a group of 11), and they walked us to another property and took great care of us with no extra charge. There were always people hanging out in the lobby (including the owners), and they provided snacks, tea, and hookah for free. Towels are free, bathrooms are clean, & the main market is only about a 5 minute walk away. Antonio also helped us book a last-minute excursion for the next morning that was an absolute blast. We had an amazing stay!

The hostel is very colorful, staff is incredibly gentle, they helped us for everything, even when we got lost in the city, one from the staff crew went to the city looking for us. The price is also nice for the installation.

Laid back atmosphere, free breakfast was decent, they hosted a free dinner one evening, which was really yummy. I was also able to book a 3 day - 2 night Sahara desert tour through them which was reasonably priced, and leave my backpack with them during that time.

I chose Waka Waka due to its proximity to the main square, souks and hammams. I booked it for one night initially and ended up staying a whole week. The first thing you will notice is the amazing colourful decoration with natural light cascading in. You are served tea on arrival and unlimited top ups throughout the day. There is a wonderful rooftop terrace a great place to read, chat and have a tea! The hosts are incredibly genuine and friendly. They will go out of their way to help you out. I had an absolutely magical time, and will miss it greatly and therefore will return again next year to show it off to friends.

We booked the tip for one week and stayed in Waka Waka the first two nights.. but after we left, we kept coming back to the hostel! The stay was just perfect. The beds and bathrooms are clean, the staff is beyond friendly and the atmosphere is great. During youre stay they are trying to make u compfy and they are doing even more than they have to. They even made us diner ! I want to recomend this hostel to everybody that is lookin' for a nice place to stay in the middle of the medina. # A+ !

The hostel couldn't be more central. It's great value for your money. The staff couldn't be more friendly. The terrace is great fun to chill in with other travellers when Marakech gets a bit too tiring. Would strongly recommend Waka Waka. Had an amazing time here!
