Equity Point Marrakech is an incredible Spa hostel (swimming pool, Hammam, Massages, etc...) just few minutes from the famous Jemaa El Fna square.
If you find yourself lost upon arriving in Marrakech, just look at the locals with a lost face, youll see that they will automatically point you towards Plaza Djemaa el-Fna, without a doubt, the very centre of Marrakech. Barely 300 metres away, the new Equity Point Marrakech hostel appears like a sanctuary for travellers, with 4 to 10 bed dorms, doubles and singles. No detail or decoration has been forgotten.

Its rooms have full bathrooms and exquisite furnishings, sofas, cushions, mirrors and paintings. Impressive common areas have provided to unwind from the frenetic pace of the city whilst getting to know people from all over the world.

Youll also be able to enjoy our swimming pool, so remember to take your swimming costume with you. In a typical year the swimming pool will be open from April to October, but it mostly depends on the weather. Youll be able to enjoy it daily from 10am to 6pm.
You will discover our amazing swimming pool in an arcade courtyard with a typical Moroccan fountain. A bath in an atmosphere youll always remember.

At night you will be able to enjoy the peace and silence of the Riads softly lit inner courtyard, or if you prefer, take in the amazing views from the rooftop terrace while enjoying a beer or refreshment from the bar. Rachida, our expert Moroccan cook, can prepare you amazing traditional meals.

The Equity Point group has put all its experience into the design of this hostel to set the standard in the city for travellers who are searching for a unique and authentic experience.

The city of Marrakech combines perfectly the increasing modernity visible in the new city, with one of the most emblematic historic centres of the world. The new surrounding areas, tourist centres, stores and big avenues like Mohamed V are strikingly contrasted with the old walled city and the Medina, where time seems to have stopped some centuries ago. The endless labyrinth of the Soug market streets north of the Plaza Jemaa el-Fna and all its hustle and bustle, the narrow streets and frescoes where only lost tourists looking for their riad and the odd cat break the silence.

Let yourself be seduced by the contrasts, colours and smells of the Medina. Immerse yourself in the fascinating activities taking on the mythical Plaza Djemaa el-Fna, the only place in the world where every day of the year you can find snake charmers, dozens of stores selling fresh juice, restaurants, bars, musicians, traditional water-sellers and acrobats.

The Equity Point group welcomes you to its newest destination city, we hope to be able to share it with you soon.

Three minutes walk from the Djemaa el-Fna in the heart of the souks, Equity Point Marrakech is in the noble part of the Medina: Mouassine.

It's not difficult to get to the hostel, however we are in the center of the old Medina of Marrakech, and this means: winding streets, lots of lefts and rights, and until you get used to it, most of the streets might look very similar to one another.

We believe that with these indications it will be easy to find us, however if you feel lost, you can always ask someone from a shop (or in the streets, but they might ask for a small tip of 20Dhm). Everybody knows us: ask for Equity point in the Mouassine and people will help. Finally you can always give us a call, and we�ll pick you up.

DIRECTIONS:

From Djemaa el-Fnaa:

The easiest way to get to the hostel is from the famous Djemaa el-Fnaa square. Ask your cab driver to leave you at what is popularly known as �Caf� Argana� although the canopy reads �Restaurant Argana�. The name �Argana� is written in large letters on the roof of the premises. If you arrive by bus, or the square is closed to cars, look for this cafe, or ask someone to show you the way to it. It�s located on one of the corners of the square.

Facing the cafe, take the street immediately to the left. Very soon you will get to an open space. Cross this taking the street on your left under the archway. Pass through the arch and you'll be in Mouassine street. This is a fairly wide street (for the Medina standards), with shops left and right. Walk straight down this street. Soon on your right you'll see a small corner shop called 'Fnaque Berber' followed by another arch, walk directly through it. After approximately 100 meters you'll get to a small open space (or a place where the street widens), once you enter this area you will find a small arch behind and to your right. This is a slight u-turn but do not worry as our street starts there! You can read its name at the top of the arch: 'Derb Laghnaiz Lamouassine'. Pass through the arch and walk down three steps. You're almost there. This street has no shops and in most parts is roofed. Walk and don't leave the wall on your left. After 50-60 meters of walking down this winding street, you'll find a door with our name on it: 'Equity Point'. Welcome!!

From the airport, you can either take the bus or a cab, the bus will leave you at the Djemaa el-Fna square, and if you arrive by train at ONCF train station, take the bus number 8 to Djemaa el-Fnaa square.

From 10am to 9pm, taxis or cars are not allowed to drive through Djemaa el-Fna square, the square is huge so you can choose to cross it and then follow the indications above or else ask the cab driver to leave your at Bab Ksour.

From Bab Ksour:

Once you are there, pass through the arch, and follow the street �Rue Side el Yamani� during aprox. 5 minutes, this is a calm street with not many shops. After a while though, the shops will start, and very soon you'll find a street on your right, it's Mouassine street, don't take it. Just right after you've left this street behind, your street will begin to have a roof, keep on walking and a few more steps ahead you'll see the entrance of a mosque on your right, keep walking straight ahead. After a few more steps you will be in an open space, now you're almost there. On your left there's a street, don't take it. On your right there's an arch, this is the beginning of our street: Derb el Hamman, you can see the sign on the right of the arch.

We can also offer you a transfer service from the Menara Airport in Marrakech. The prices per transfer are:

From 1 to 4 passengers:
During the day (7a.m-20p.m) - 120 Dh-12 euros.

In this street there are no shops:
- after you pass through the arch go straight ahead 45 steps (aprox) and turn left.
- walk 20 steps more and turn right
- 7 more steps and make it left
- 50 more steps and turn right
- 30 more steps and you're there. Door number 80. Welcome!!
