It is an extension of our complete guide of 3 best hostels in Marrakech. Here we already compared the coolest hostels in town. We even added party hostels and for backpackers to enjoy the city on a budget.
Before we start with the review of Rodamon Riad, here’s a bit of an insight.
The very first time we travelled to Marrakech, we have been warned: it will be stressful, busy, vendors will try to sell you anything. It won’t be your little, relaxed dream destination you see on all the instagram photos (even though that was before instagram got huge).
Anyways, we arrived with stress in our minds already.
Since we had our mind set accordingly, we were not bothered by all the noise and hustle in La Medina.
It also helped to have a good quality hostel we could unwind and relax at: Rodamon Riad Marrakech!
The backpackers we met on the flight from Barcelona to Marrakech were staying at a super cheap hostel for 4€ only…their experience was quite different, not to say BAD!
That being said, here’s why we think you should go with a quality hostel, best the Star Hostel in town!
Here’s a great video showing you around our favorite accommodation:

Where to hang? An Instagram Dream
Rodamon Riad Marrakech is well praised with their rooftop terrace and bar that gives you a perfect panoramic view of the Atlas Mountains and the Jemaa el-Fnaa Mosque.
Have your favorite cocktails and cheers to landing on the best rooftop view that beats the bustling busy street on Marrakech. Quiet and peaceful yet exciting and fun.
There is also a restaurant in the hostel that opens at 17:00 for dining services. The food is really, really good! You should dine here one night for sure! A great way to stay within the hostel if you’re not in the vibe of going out.
But wait, we have more for you!
Located in the hostel’s patio is a lovely medium size pool where guests can take a dip or plunge in while enjoying your favorite cold beer or have a taste of their flavored mint tea.
And oh, please don’t forget to try the famous Moroccan beer, Casablanca.
Hostel Activities and Tours
Now let’s go to the hostel activities.
Obviously, when travelling to Marrakech, you might have already heard about the desert tour, trekking and other tours around the area.
Look no further because the hostel offers a great variety of tours and activities you could choose from. The hostel teamed up with a high-quality provider of tours. The prices they offer are more expensive than the ones you might find elsewhere.
However, the hostel offers these tours because they are the ones ensuring a great experience.
Personally, we never ever recommend the absolute cheapest tours you can find. Cheap comes pricey at the end!
The two-day trip takes you from Marrakech to Zagora Desert while the three-day trip brings you to Merzouga Sahara Desert. Experience riding camels, sleep in tents, do campfires, and see the famous Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah which is considered as a world heritage and famous movie location for Hollywood blockbusters like Gladiator.
Hot Air Balloon – Our personal favorite, nothing better than going up high and see the majestic, breath-taking view of the Atlas plains while the sun creeps above the horizon, casting beautiful colors over the desert that only birds can see.
Have a look at this video. WOWZIE!
Okay, that escalated quickly. And obviously, this one is the most pricey option.
Epic experience? OH YES!
