Quick Introduction to Marrakech

Average price for a bed: SUPER CHEAP!! Hostels Marrakech could offer cost anything between 4€ and 12€ per night for a bed in a dorm.

A hostel in Marrakech with private room costs 20€ up to 50€ per night.

This is a rough average just to give you an idea. Prices always depend on season and holidays. Please always check exact rates on Hostelworld.com or Booking.com.

Check-In and Check Out: The average check-in time is from 15:00 (3pm), while the Check Out time is before 11:00 (11am). 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.

Tourist Tax: There is a tourist tax of 2.27€ per night. Most hostels, riads and Marrakech hotels do not have this tax included in the room price.

What is a Riad? Riad means “gardens“, and it is a large traditional house built around a central courtyard. These riads are nowadays often converted into a hotel, hostel or guesthouse.

Therefore, do not get obsessed with staying in a Riad. Most hostels on this list are actually hostel-turned Riads.

Taking photos: Please note that many locals do not like to be photographed without being asked. They might even get offended. It is best to ask. They might ask for some money or that you buy something in exchange.

Scams: Yes, unfortunately you can easily run into scams in Marrakesh. The most common scams are the “Henna Tattoo Scam”, the “I show you the way Scam” and the “this is free-scam”. Read this article on scams in Marrakesh for more details.

What about cheapest hostels in Marrakech?

Hostels in Marrakech are already cheap. The ones we list above are averagely priced.

The hostels in Marrakech backpackers and backpacking hotels actually affordable.

Of course, there are always cheap and even cheaper hostels.

We think, it’s not worth it to go with the cheapest hostel out there.

Why?

Well, the quality drops dramatically. Same as Hostels in Vietnam, the cheap ones are really something to avoid in our opinion.

“Avoid the cheapest hostels in Marrakesh! They are usually very low-quality and dirty hostels…”

Good to know: We met a few fellow backpackers Marrakech. They stayed in a place for 4€ a night; it was super dirty, cockroaches, paint coming from the walls, you name it. They were not happy with the place, but happy to save every penny.

If you are traveling on a shoe-string budget and you wanna save every penny, there are ways to find the cheapest places in Marrakech.

  1. Open Hostelworld with full list of budget places to stay in Marrakech
  2. Order the listing by price

Simple as that.

Make sure you use then the other filters and rank per price. Also keep a close eye on the ratings, especially the “extreme ratings”. Meaning, the best and worst. These ratings can give great insight on what to expect.

Here’s a guide on how to use Hostelworld for booking hostels.

Party Hostels in Marrakech

Update: Sorry to say that Waka Waka Hostel has closed its doors. We do not currently have another party hostel in Marrakech to recommend.

Alright, so you are looking more for a backpacker’s experience, a party hostel perhaps? Marrakech party, anyone?

Not to worry, there are hostels for every type of traveler here.

Have a look at WAKA WAKA Hostel.

Smoke some Shisha, mingle in the common area, have a few drinks with your new hostel mates. Waka Waka Hostel is the best Youth hostel you will find. It is great for backpackers and young people that appreciate a small price, and a very basic comfort.

The dorms are kept simple, the service is simple.

A big no-go is for us the super slow WiFi; and some fellow mates informed us that the receptionists tries to charge high-rates for taxi.

Again, a fun place. Just get your own SIM card and book your activities elsewhere.

Few more Tips about Marrakech

You made it this far, that is a good sign. It means you are ready to get prepared.

Before we traveled the first time to Marrakech, many of our friends gave us excellent tips. This helped us a lot to get our expectations set correctly.

Paradise or Stress?

If you are under the impression you will walk into your personal paradisaical reliving of One Thousand and One Nights; well, think again!

Yes, it is absolutely beautiful. But there’s also tourist scams in Marrakech, and there are also stressful street sellers.

Get ready to get stressed and annoyed. Once you have this in your mind, you will enjoy it much more. At the same time, make sure you charge your camera. It is a gorgeous city, so picturesque.

Simply put: get ready for a stressful city, and don’t forget to smile and enjoy!

Tourist Scams

Jemaa el-Fnaa is the square and market place in Marrakesh’s medina quarter; literally it is the heart of Medina, the Old Town.

This means as well that prices are steep and scams are common.

The most common scam is by street sellers charging an arm and a leg for water. But, yeah, that is easy to avoid.

The most sneaky ones would be the

  • snake-whisperer
  • Henna-Tattoo Lady

The Snake-Whisperer is literally walking around with a snake around the neck. He will try to put the snake on you, so you can take a photo. Once done, get ready for a big fat price for that photo.

The Henna Tattoo Lady was almost the most annoying part. There’s a few ladies running around that offer “free” Henna Tattoos.

Even if you decline, they try to start drawing the Henna-tattoo on your hand.

If you do not insist and stay strong by saying NO (or LA in Arabic!), she will try to give you the Henna Tattoo – followed up by a nasty smile and a fee.

Things To Do

We wrote up a guide on things to do in Marrakesh.

Read it, it will be helpful.

We also included a secret street stall on the market; for locals and those who do not care for a dirty plate only.

Marrakesh vs Marrakech vs. Marrakesch

You may have noticed the different spelling of the Blue City. Well, don’t worry. All three spellings are for the same city. It is really only the difference in the language. It’s

  • Marrakech in French
  • Marrakesh in English
  • Marrakesch in German

That may not be life-changing information. But hey, now you know.

Flights to Marrakech?

Flying to Marrakech is so easy. Many European budget airlines like Ryanair fly to Marrakech Airport.

You can find very cheap flights from Barcelona, for instance. The airport itself is not far away from the city centre. You can either take a bus, a taxi or ask your hostel for a private airport pick-up.

The hotel or hostel Airport Pick-Up service is usually cheaper, or at least around the same price as a taxi.

Remember: Always ask first for the price before taking a taxi or ride!

We use Skyscanner and Omio.com to find cheap flights and good connections all over the globe.

Skyscanner has a bunch of cool features like Multi-City Trip. Instead of doing this research step-by-step, Skyscanner offers this flight planning tool.
