Coming into Chefchaouen, my two friends and I didn't have a place to stay. We walked into the Baraka and got the last 3 available beds! The staff was super friendly. Over the next three nights, we made friends with all sorts of travelers from around Chaouen (as the Baraka terrace became the most popular spot come nightfall) and got...

Overall I had a really great stay here. My private en suite was very good value - the bed was really comfy and it was very well decorated and clean. I liked the breakfast and thought it was good value. I actually really liked that it's an optional extra too, as it means you are free to have your breakfast...

This was such a wonderful hostel. It is in a perfect location within the medina. The atmosphere was incredible, and it really gave me the feeling of an authentic Moroccan experience! The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and help us get aquainted with the town! I would highly recommend staying here!

Booked 2 nights and stayed 4! I think that sums up my feelings well! Gorgeous riad just in the medina. Hard to find if you come on the local bus (which I did) but clear instructions if you come the tourist route. The staff here run a tight ship and I loved it. Super clean and efficiently run. Felt safe...

Great hostel, the common area and the terrace are lovely. The breakfast costs 25 dh and is totally worth it. Only had signaling near the place itself so can be a little hard to find when you first come. The only con is they close the hostel at midnight and you very locked out of your late.

Thanks for your review and compliments , we do close the hostel at 12 for two reasons for security and Chaouen is not a party town . We do have the best terrace in town which can be enjoyed all night(with some consideration for neighbours) thanks for choosing to stay with team Baraka .

Great hostel inside the old town/ medina. Comfy beds, clean, great location and staff members Richard and Kate were very helpful giving me pointers on where to eat and where to find the CTM ticketing booth etc. The hostel has a beautiful rooftop terrace with 360-degree views of Chafchaouen; the call to prayer at sunset sounded incredible whilst sitting up...

One of the best hostels I have stayed at in all my years of travelling!! I came for 4 days and ended up staying 3 weeks.

This hostel is hands down the best place to stay in chefchaouen, it's clean, pretty and the atmosphere is excellent. Full of awesome travellers. The local staff are so friendly and will go out of their way to help you with anything. The owner Anne is a Real treat! The only place to get the British hospitality outside of Barthelona!...

To echo all other reviews, a really lovely place to have stayed for a few nights. Ann is a savvy business woman and it shows with everything having a price but thankfully those prices are still reasonable for the average backpacker/flashpacker. A lack of toilets and temperamental showers and wifi and a paid for breakfast stop me giving this an...
