Rooms were clean, bathrooms clean, lovely rooftop terrace with loads of space to hang out. Breakfast was really good and cheap as well. Great wifi!

Best hostel in all of Morocco! If you go, make sure to bring some chewing tobacco for Anne ;) The roof terrace and decks give you incredible views of the mountains, and Anne is honestly the best person in the world. She will protect you from the hagglers and give advice for all the things to do in the city!

I stayed at Riad Baraka in September for 1 night, the owner appeared nice and helpful at the beginning, but I found that her yelling at her staff was quite unprofessional and made us feel uncomfortable, you could hear her yelling from the rooms! The Riad is very nice and has a great terrace which has a nice view but...

One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Really cheap and really beautiful right in the heart of the medina in Chefchaoen. The owner Anne is not one to cross but she's incredibly helpful for her guests. The rooftop terrace is also an incredible spot to hang out and take in the beauty of the town

This is a great spot right inside the beautiful blue medina. I would say it's a mix between a hostel and home stay -- some rooms have private bathrooms, some don't. There aren't any dorm rooms. Breakfast is delicious -- but make sure you tell the owner the day before if you're planning on having breakfast the next morning or...
