The owner, Youssef, is a really good person and very helpful, works very hard and serious about his business but amazingly friendly yet! I had looked for an interesting, comfy and safe to stay but still reasonable camp in Merzouga for a night camp in desert as I was a sole female traveler and the very first time to visit...

The breakfast was great and he arranged everything we needed perfectly. The desert camel tour he arranged for us was also super cool! Very beautiful camp with real beds and a toilet! Go...

We are so grateful to have found this haven in Merzouga. Youssef is such an amazing person and Touda (his cousin) was there to keep the hotel in good spirits as well. We stayed in 10 places as we did a roadtrip around Morocco, but this place really stood out as Youssef is such a genuinely friendly and all smiles...

I highly recommend this guest house, Youssef is very warm and friendly and he made us feel at home. The guest house is beautiful and comfortable and so it is his camp in the desert. I'll definitely be coming back and recommend it to anyone interested in visiting Merzouga.

Chez Youseff is fantastic! Youseff, the owner, is absolutely amazing and has made our trip! His guesthouse is gorgeous, clean and comfortable in a quiet location just off the end of a main street in merzouga. The food that is prepared is delicious and authentic and his desert camp is everything you would imagine a Sahara camp to be. It...

Our room was probably the nicest we had in Morocco. Youssef is incredibly welcoming and helpful and the food was great. Youssef also organised a perfect desert trip - just one other couple in a small and remote camp with music and the stars.

Chez Youssef is small and cozy in the heart of Merzouga. Youssef is a wonderful host and provides a variety of services to make your stay more pleasant. Do take him up on his camel safari as his yurts in the desert are far and away better than what you will find elsewhere. The food back at the hotel is...

Youssef treats you like family and ensures your stay is comfortable and that you get what you want out of the stay. His home cooking is delicious. Rooms are comfortable and he can hook you up with a great guided experience in Erg Chebbi

We arrived here after a long ride from the dundes gorge and got greeted traditionally with thee by the ever friendly youssef. A really good host who is in this business because he genuinely loves it which you notice directly. I'd advice to definitely eat here instead of the few restourants in town. They cook a neat couscous and kefta....
