Description - Hostel

Hostel Riad Mama Marrakech is a warm friendly place that welcomes travelers and backpackers, ages 18 and over, from all the far corners of the world. We have a tremendous amount of experience in the hospitality industry. Collectively, we are native English, French, Arabic and Spanish speakers so we can understand what travelers need during their stay in a place that may or may not be familiar.

As our guest, you can relax on our beautiful garden terrace and drink free mint tea all day if you desire. If you are feeling social, mingle with other guests listening to music in our comfortable ground floor salon and even feel free to cook yourself a meal in our kitchen, using the wonderful spices you may have just gotten from the Souks.

We can also help you set up the adventure of your life with day and night trips to other cities… Go to the beach for the day in Essaouira, take a hike on the trails and waterfalls in the mountains of Ourika Valley or even go camel riding and spend some time in the Sahara… After a few days of adventure, you may want to relax, come back to Mama Marrakech and sense that this hostel is your home away from home. We desire that you to feel that this experience is one you want to tell your friends about or feel safe enough to come back alone, because you are a part of our extended family!

Hostel amenities

Our Award winning staff creates an atmosphere that is authentic and comforting for travelers. All types of music can be shared over the speakers throughout the hostel. We have instruments and our guests share their talents with one another as we hang out on the terrance for sun bathing or build beautiful fires in the evenings for the guests to sit outside when it is cold. We have random dinners of amazing Moroccan cuisine for new guests so that the clients really get to know one another, sharing their experiences in a large open Moroccan decor salon. With large dorm rooms including a dorm room with a bathroom ensuite, free breakfast and a warm and welcoming living experience, it is our desire that our amenities make each client feel like Mama Marrakech is their home away from home!
