Hostel Waka Waka, Marrakech
Backpack – check. Camera – check. Passport – check. Travel-bug - DOUBLE check. Hostel– not yet sorted. Down a cobbled back-street in the souqs, 3 minutes from Place D’Jeema el Fna, lies Waka Waka’s – this time in Marrakech. Arrive with no plans and feed your mind with tea and dreams..
Waka Waka’s is a friendly, spicy, warm, unpretentious place to stay in the maze of the souqs. It is just right for the independent, budget traveller.
We are equipped with large dorms and private rooms. Turn your ideas into adventures in our large communal courtyard or garden roof terrace. Wake up early and enjoy an African sunrise for breakfast (included by the way), learn how to cook Moroccan style in our large kitchen, and experience Waka Waka’s evening entertainment. If you find the time to leave the hostel, you will find all the sparkly trinkets you need to cram into your backpack on our doorstep.
Leave your guidebook at the bottom of your bag, and experience Morocco Uncut. Choose your own adventure over tea and maybe a cheeky shisha pipe – we are from all corners of Morocco – Sahara, the mountains and Marrakech itself and are happy to provide guidance, advice, and lots of stories about the areas you may want to visit.
