Action packed and often chaotic, Marrakech is Morocco's most-visited city. Split into the old quarter, dominated by the souks in the Medina area, and the ville nouvelle (the modern city), Marrakech is an incredible feast for your senses.
The smells of the tanneries and the street food sellers fill the air of the winding maze of backstreets where shop owners flog their goods to both locals and tourists alike.
Bartering is a part of Moroccan culture, so make sure you keep a tight hold on your dirhams until you've done the right deal! If you ever have enough of the incredible market stalls in the old town then there's plenty of beautiful mosques and ancient Riad's to visit, not to mention some world-class art galleries and museums in the modern part of town.
You'll find Equity Point Hostel right in the middle of Marrakech's Medina. Just steps away from the main square, this Marrakech Hostel even have their own pool!
