Essaouira Hostel is a laid back place to chill out and meet friends in a beautifu, unusuall building located in the heart of Essaouira's Medina; there are no silly rules or curfews. It is much more like staying in a friend's house. The owner and manager are local and always ready to have a good time! This is a place to kick back and feel at home; it has a young vibe and whatever the majority of guests are up for, from watching DVDs, cooking up a BBQ to partying through the night; this is what goes on!
