Party Hostels in Morocco

You might not initially think of Morocco as a good country for finding party hostels. And to be honest, you’re not completely wrong.

One thing to know: alcohol consumption is prohibited (it’s an Islamic country).

Whilst they aren’t home to the craziest parties in the world, you can still have an awesome time here. Just swap alcohol for shisha and partying for intimate dinners.

Here are 5 secret things to do in Marrakech when you’re not partying.

Check out these options:

  1. Hostel Waka Waka, Marrakech
  2. Riad Verus, Fes
