I personally love it, but if the goal of your trip is sightseeing, you won’t need more than two days there to see the Hassan II mosque, the Medina souks, the Habous quarter, and the Hammam Hassan II.
But this is a big city, so picking the best Casablanca hostel for your trip is a must. The hostels in Casablanca in this guide are great for all travelers, whether you’re a history-lover, a fan of culture, or traveling with your family and friends.
Here are our top picks for safe and budget-friendly accommodations in Casablanca, Morocco.
Average price for a bed: Hostels in Casablanca cost $15 – $25 per night for a bed in a dorm. A private room has an average price of around $44 per night. This is a rough average, just to give you an idea.
Check-In and Check-Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3 pm), while the Check-Out time is before 11:00 (11 am). Hostels usually offer luggage storage in case you arrive earlier or leave later. Make sure you check if luggage storage is free or if there is an extra cost.
Souk tip: You must put your bargaining hat on if you don’t want people to take advantage of you. If you look like a foreigner and you don’t speak Arabic, you will immediately be given an inflated price of up to 50%. Bargaining is part of the culture, so get good at it!
Places are closed on Fridays and holidays: Morocco is a Muslim country, and religion is part of day-to-day life. This means that a lot of shops and attractions close on Fridays at noon as this is one of the most important times for prayer of the week.
Some shops also close for a bit during prayer times throughout the day, regardless of the day.
If you’re visiting during Ramadan (the Ramadan calendar changes every year), it might also be hard to find meals during the day.
Transportation: Most travelers and locals use the Casa tramway. You can also opt for private taxis (Petit taxis).
Ask before taking pictures: Casablanca and Morocco have a distinct charm to them. This charm will make you want to take a lot of pictures, but if you find yourself about to take a picture of people, you might also find yourself in trouble.
A lot of Moroccans don’t enjoy being randomly photographed by strangers, so make sure to ask before you snap away. Also, be aware that some people in rural parts might ask you for money in exchange for a picture.
These are our favorite hostels in Casablanca. We want to make your life even easier, so we put all accommodations on a map for you. We even added our own tips for favorite restaurants, things to see, and more.
This is a very big hostel in Casablanca. What we liked the most was its beautiful garden where you can lounge in the sun, read a book, or work on your laptop (their free Wi-Fi is great).
The place itself is very inviting and cozy. It’s small enough to promote interactions between guests yet big enough to provide private spaces for those who prefer to stay alone.
If you’re a light sleeper, be sure to bring earplugs with you, as the hostel is a bit echo-ey.
Location: Casablanca hostel in the residential area of l’Oasis, which isn’t very central. It’s a 10-minute walk away from Gar l’Oasis, which can take you to many famous sights throughout the city. It’s also easy to find taxis in the neighborhood.
We think that Medina Hostel is the perfect Casablanca hostel for solo travelers. The atmosphere is very familiar, and the staff, which is made up of a family, is incredibly helpful. This will come in handy if you face any issues during your stay.
Of course, there are always cheap hostels. But how do you actually find them? When you are traveling on a shoe-string budget and you want to save every dollar, there are ways to find the cheapest places in Casablanca.

Here we share with you the most asked question:
Can I bring a drone to Morocco with me?
No! Morocco has a strict ‘no drones’ policy. If you bring one with you, you will be forced to leave it at the airport until your departure date. Also, the drone can only be kept at the airport for up to 45 days. If you’re returning home from a different airport or staying in Morocco for more than 45 days, this can become a problem.
