“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2013 via mobile

We stumbled on Green Milk accidentally, like the rest of the motley crew of translate hanging around the communal dinner table. More like a share house than a hostel (as per the literal writing on the wall), the place is brand new, has a kitchen you're welcome to use, and everyone pitches in to open the door (no key) and put extra toilet rolls in the bathroom. Hot water showers, and everything is made from recycled building materials: there are two mascot ducks living on the upstairs rooftop and driftwood sculpture everywhere. Guests are encouraged to contribute to the art of the place, and photos of the people who helped build the place are taped to the wall by the kitchen. More like the welcoming hippie houses of forty years ago than a modern sterile hostel or hotel Green Milk made me want to sell my plane ticket home and stay in Essaouira for months.

I was actually the first customer to use their new website, It had only been up a few hours when I came to Essaouira, I'd met a young German tourist who'd mentioned this new trendy place in town so I went to a cyber café to look it up, It's a new Hostel run by 3 friendly guys, Omar, Mustapha and Othman, this hostel is different from most places you've ever stayed, The atmosphere is artistic, laid back and stress free, the guys are quick to help with any problems, queries, etc. The rooms are a little basic but the whole Riad interior has a rustic charm to it, there is a lovely terrace upstairs to relax and feed the 2 resident ducks, most evenings finish around the campfire with jambees and mint tea, It IS the cheapest place in Essaouira at 50 dirhams a night, However older travellers might find it too bohemian shall we say.
They have a nice webiste, just google 'green milk Essaouira' and you'll find it, It's also a little tricky to find so don't hesitate to ask around, enjoy!!
