Hostel Waka Waka Reviews

Dirty and full of cigarette smoke! Go somewhere else instead of staying here!

The Location

The location of Hostel Waka Waka is good and quite close to the central square of Marrakech. Everything you will need is within walking distance of the hostel and it is also close by to where you can catch the local buses if you want to travel a little further out of your way.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms here are on the second and third floors. The bed sheets look like they haven't been washed in quite a while and they smell that way as well. They give you another sheet and a blanket to use while you sleep and most of these had a musty smell of old cigarette. This is because most of the staff and their friends sit inside and smoke all day long, even when they close the patio roof at night. It makes your clothes smell as well as the linen and it stings your eyes. This is not ideal if you are asthmatic or just don't want all of your stuff to reek after you leave.

They have one bathroom on the second floor with a toilet and shower in it. It is a very basic bathroom and is moderately clean. It can be quite busy considering how many people have to use the one small bathroom.

Common Spaces

The common spaces consist of the courtyard area on the ground floor after you enter. There are tables and chairs set around with plugs so you can chill out and enjoy, but this is where most of the smoking happens, which is fine if you are a smoker but not so fine otherwise. There is a kitchen just off from here that you can use as well. It is fully equipped but you kind of feel like you are imposing a little as the staff and their friends hang out here.

The staff are helpful though and they do give you a mint tea and some biscuits on arrival which is good for entertaining yourself as they can take quite a long time to get themselves sorted out enough to check you in. They can also organize tours and things like hammam if you want to experience one of those while you are in Marrakech.

The upstairs balcony also has some couches that you can sit on as well if you prefer to not be as much in the smoke.


While the staff here seem friendly enough, the biggest problem with this hostel is that it feels more like a halfway house for the friends of the people who work there to sit about, play loud rap music and chain smoke all day. The place stinks, the beds and sheets are dirty and the stay wasn't at all comfortable. There are other hostels you can go to that will offer you a better time than here.
