- “ We stayed at their 2nd hostel which was a bit boring, quiet lame and there was not much happening. We would suggest that you stay at their 1st original hostel instead, which we heard was a bit better. The breakfast was okay, the crew was okay, one guy working alone. A bit difficult to find the first time, but with a good location to most of the things around. Where was the bar that was promised, maybe in the 1st place. ”

- “ This hostel is excellent. The Hostel is very clean and the staff is excellent. I stayed two nights and went on an overnight excursion to the Sahara. When I returned the hostel didn't have any available beds and I had forgotten to make a reservation. However, the staff called another hostel and arranged for someone to pick me up and take me to the new one. Malik ad Achmed at the Rouge and Azdin and abdellatif at the Rainbow hostel were amazing hosts! ”

“ Ali and the entire Staff are WONDERFUL, we met lots of great and interesting people and our stay would be perfect IF the hotel management did not allowed people to smoke inside the building.
IN Fact if you do not like cigarette or the smell of smoke, you should NOT stay there, PERIOD.
It is horrible, day and night, people are smoking NON STOP not only water pipes which is OK, but also tons of cigarettes, H, etc
The breakfast is NOT vegan, not even fruits are served but few cheap cakes & tea ”
Hi Patrick and future guests of Marrakech Rouge, We are responding just to correct a factual error regarding 'cheap cakes' (!). The lovely breakfast is prepared in our kitchen by 2 marvellous ladies, Bouchra and Lebaba every day - thus it is fresh and handmade. The breakfast is semi-vegan in that some aspects are such as the breads (which uses oil rather than butter), but some aspects are not. We do not advertise a vegan breakfast. Our guest kitchen allows everyone to prepare anything they like should they wish to supplement the breakfast, or indeed just ask the wonderful Ali to fetch some fruit for you - there is a fruit boutique less than 1 minute away. When researching where to stay - it is important to check the systems that are advertised initially. We are not a 'no smoking' hostel and this will not change. Guests can smoke cigarettes and shisha pipes in public areas. We are a hostel in Morocco and thus unlike say Europe, are not breaking any law here. You would probably find this the same in any cafe, restaurant and other accommodation in Marrakech and across Morocco. We hope this clarifies! Happy future hostel travelling!
