Good value for money, very friendly staff, amazing breakfasts (loved the doughnuts with honey), cool little room. Great stay, my only complaint was lack of toilet paper. Only the owner knew where the toilet paper was.. So uncomfortable night!!
Other than that brilliant hostel!!
About the tour...unrelated to the hostel. I will warn you that if you get a tour guide he will take you to lots of shops and truly encourage you to buy things for commission. We KNOW the true prices of the items. We went with a marocan family to a market in Rabat and paid 50dirham for a great quality tea pot. I.e. Local price... Fez... For the same similar design teapot.. 200dirhams
So haggle AT LEAST half off... They'll still make a killing. Bear in mind the average salary is 2000 dirhams..that's.200 quid a month.. They are really out to take your money so stay psychologically analytical, stay calm when haggling and enjoy!
