Take a ride

You really don’t need to take car or taxis to have a wonderful ride around Marrakech. Aside from these traditional modes of transportation in Marrakech,you could also take a ride in one of Marrakech’s calèche or horse-drawn carriages! Something really unique.

Try their best orange in your life

If you really love oranges, then you better try their specialty, blood oranges. Rather than buying bottled water, you can just head to the nearest fruit cart and buy for the fruit or glass of its juice.  Fresh and incredibly cheap!

Try a relaxing mint tea

After the tiring days of touring around the city, try relaxing drink like their sweet mint tea. You can visit one of cafés in the centre of the Old Town of Marrakech and try out their traditional specialty teas.

Chill out in the gardens

If you are looking for a place where you can escape from the crowds, aside from staying in the calm courtyard of the hostel, you can pay a visit at the Menara Gardens. You can see olive groves and fruit orchards that surround the artificial lake in the middle.

 If you really in for an adventure, you can try exploring Atlas Mountains, the Sahara or even the fortified Essaouira city.


If you love eating, then you can expect  your appetite to be charged with the amazing foods here. If you are looking for something exotic and delicious, then you should drop by Djemaa-El-Fnaa at sunset. This place transforms into a great food market during the evening.

And lastly, enjoy your Hostel!  Equity Point is a converted Riad in the very centre of the old town of Marrakech.

They’ve kept the Hostel looking like the Riad once would have; the open courtyard in the centre now holds the communal pool and you can even take breakfast on the Riad’s rooftop with views over the bazaar below. A great way to get a feel of what Marrakech is really about!
