Hostel Nari-Nari Marrakech
Ranked #180 of 295 Speciality Lodging in Marrakech
Reviewed 27 May 2012

Nari Nari is part of a group of 5 hostels owned by the same family. We did not stay at Nari Nari but instead chose Hostel Riad Marrakech Rouge which is a few minutes away.

The reason for my review is to write a short note highlighting the hospitality shown to my girlfriend and I by the manager of Nari Nari, Zuhair (sorry if I spelled wrong!). After a visit to our hostel, Zuhair learned that we were interested in purchasing a few items in Marrakech and offered to show us where the best places are and how to get past the tourist tat. He spent several hours helping us bargain and only acted in our interest unlike other people with an interest in selling in Marrakech, and showed us from one place to the next whilst telling us more about Marrakech and his hostel. We ended up delighted with our purchases and whilst being indebted to him for his time and help, he insisted that we come back to his hostel for tea.

Nari Nari looked like a great hostel and somewhere we would be very happy to stay. Although we cannot really comment further, this review is to thank Zuhair for his hospitality and to tell everyone else that you will be in good hands if you stay here!

We stayed here for three nights. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating and gave us good tips on everything you need to know about the city. Hostel is beautiful and has a great location. It is a great refuge when you have been walking around Marrakech for the whole day and just want to relax. Thanks again!

Nari-Nari is an absolute gem at the center Marrakesh’s labyrinth medina. Unmarked and quietly nestled near the end of a narrow and nondescript side street, travelers resourceful enough to find it on their own (or willing to pay a couple dollars to the clamoring locals eager to guide them) will cross the threshold of its #51 door into an oasis of calm.

The generous and accommodating staff creates a home-like atmosphere for guests from every continent. The beautifully decorated shared lounge space features complimentary wi-fi, mint tea, and fresh hot breakfast served as early or late as you like. Listen to music, watch a movie, sit back with a book, or chat with the staff and guests any time of day. The staff is full of great recommendations and is always more than willing to help you plan your local excursions. They even taught a hands-on cooking class complete with a trip to the local market, and a bottle of wine.

The two shared dorm rooms are a bit of a squeeze, but full doors recently replaced the curtains separating the beds from the bathroom to give guests some added privacy. Two-person private rooms are thoughtfully adorned and worth the relatively small additional cost for a couple. All rooms have A/C units but some work better than others – although you won’t really need it during the non-summer months.

In every respect, Nari-Nari is fully deserving of its consistently amazing reviews on this site and others. Note that it’s best to reserve in advance, as you are likely to encounter a packed house if arriving unannounced; I believe they will also provide detailed directions from a number of prominent landmarks with your confirmation.

Room Tip: Shared dorms are great for singles or travelers on a budget; couples should upgrade to a private roo...

We stayed there three nights. We were hassled a little in the markets (like every other foreigner when arriving) but were welcomed into the hostel with open arms.
We stayed in an 8 bed dorm with a clean bathroom. Facilities were good.
Very close to central souk (market), truly in the centre of busy Marrakech but a quiet place to stay.
