Equity Point Hostel is without a doubt the best hostel in Marrakech, just 300m away from the very centre of Marrakech, the Plaza Djemaa el-Fna, Equity Point Marrakech Hostel is like a sanctuary for weary travellers in Morocco.

At night you will be able to enjoy the peace and silence of the Riad’s 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.

Set in an old Riad, the Equity Point Marrakech Hostel has been meticulously renovated with amazing attention to detail, and you can choose between 4-, 6-, and 8- bed dormitory rooms of private rooms depending on who you're travelling with!  All of the rooms have ensuite bathrooms.  The hostel also has numerous common areas so you can always find somewhere to chill out after a busy day walking around Marrakech's vibrant centre!

There is a pool open in the summer months in Equity Point Hostel's courtyard, plus a beautiful roof top terrace and bar with some excellent views over the chaotic city of Marrakech.

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, where  you can find snake charmers, dozens of stores selling fresh juice, restaurants, bars, musicians, traditional water-sellers and acrobats every day of the year!

The city of Marrakech combines perfectly the increasing modernity visible in the new city, with one of the most emblematic historic centers of the world. The new surrounding areas, tourist centers, 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.

How to arrive

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 “Café 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 approx. 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, its 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.

In this street there are no shops:
- After you pass through the arch go straight ahead 45 steps (approx) 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!!

I stayed here with my partner Diane, during June 2015. It is a very, very good hostel.The building is in the middle of the Medina, which means it is difficult to find, but full of North African Character. The rooms - we stayed in a private room, were clean and comfortable. The pool was great and the food very good. The hostel can arrange for you to be picked up and delivered to the airport for a reasonable fee.Staff were helpful.

We would recommend this hostel very highly, and we'll be back!

The breakfast is great! I like they serve mint tea and fresh orange juice. Sometimes they serve scramble eggs too. They have swimming pool, which is good for a hostel. They have many sitting area around the building where you can relax. The building and the interior is really Moroccan style.
