Albergue muy céntrico
Se trata de un riad situado en barrio de la kasbah, puede resultar bastante difícil llegar a él. En cambio, el ambiente es muy acogedor, típico de mochileros y gente joven. Algo de ruido por las noches pero soportable. Los encargados son muy agradables y os tratarán como parte de la familia desde el primer momento.

Great hostel
Red Castle Hostel is a very friendly and cheap hostel. Staff is very helpful and the hostel seems to attract good people. Nice atmosphere and only 15 minutes walk to "the Fna". Next time I am in Marrakesh I will stay at this hostel again. Jakob
