  • Hostel Waka Waka was great! The staff welcomed us into the family quickly and made sure we had everything we need (directions, towels, food, advice, and even occasionally an escort to dinner!). The hostel's decor is cool and comfortable, and there is a great, friendly vibe throughout the place. It's easy to make friends and feel like you are integrated into Marrakech during your stay. The provided breakfast is delicious, the bathrooms are clean and the bedrooms are comfortable.

  • I stayed in waka waka for a few nights and it was my favourite hostel in Morocco! The staff (Sayd and Jawad) were awesome and always nice to have around. They were very helpful And offered lots of good advice. They even made me the best mint tea! They were not only staff to me, they are sahbi (friends)

  • We LOVED Hostel Waka Waka. We couldn't have asked for a better location, it was wonderful being able to walk around the streets for a few minutes then walk out into the huge plazas right in from of the big mosque. The actual hostel felt very safe and secure, and the people working there were extremely nice and helpful.

  • I stayed here in October and again in February because I fell in love with the culture and the people in Morocco and this hostel! Husain and Anis are amazing hosts who put your comfort and happiness over their own sleep. They have created a community and because of it I have made life long friends and I know that I will return to Waka Waka as soon as my wallet can afford the place ticket. The only down side is the wifi, but who needs that in a place as amazing as Marrakesh anyway?
