HI - Rabat Hostel Reviews
WOW! Sep 15, 2007
A Petite Taxi to the hostel should costs approximately 10 DH, arrange the fare ahead of time or ensure they use the meter. To walk to the hostel from the Rabat Ville Train Station, exit the train station either left or right and walk straight until you exit the city wall. Turn right onto Ave ibn Toumerte. Continue straight until you reach the hostel which is located on the left hand side of the street. The walk should take 10-15 minutes.
There are 4 total rooms in this hostel. There are two FEMALE rooms which each consist of 8 bunk beds (16 beds). There is one smaller MALE room inside the main MALE room. The larger room has 7 bunk beds (14 beds) while the smaller room only has 3 bunk beds (6 beds). There are no MIXED rooms available in this hostel. We would recommend bringing sheets, a pillowcase, or a sleeping bag. There are mattress and pillow protectors on the beds but no sheets. The blankets are not changed or washed between travelers. There are approximately 3 shower stalls and 3 toilets in each bathroom which are segerated also. Toilet paper is not provided, please bring your own. Te bathrooms are not throughly cleaned, for instance, the rubbish in the FEMALE bathroom was not emptied our entire stay. The bathroom does not get crowded due to the very few travelers staying in this hostel. NOTE - there is NO HOT WATER at this establishment! There are hooks in the bathrooms to hang your clothes, towel, etc.
The common area is the Court Yard where you are more than welcomed to sleep under the stars. If this sounds appealing, bring insect repellent. There are no lockers provided for usage. The hostel staff will keep your valables for you behind the reception desk; in turn you are given a receipt noting the contents.
Breakfast is included in the price of 50 DH per person per night. Breakfast is OJ, tea or coffee, and bread. Breakfast is 0800-0900 (0900-1000 during Ramadan). Check out time is noon. The reception hours are 0800-2300 daily (0800-2400 during Ramadan). During Ramadan there is a lock-out/lock-in period during 1845-1945. There are signs posted advising you not to wash clothes or bring drugs or alcohol into the hostel. One would not need an HI card for this hostel, the price is the same with or without the card. Lizard roam freely throughout the hostel, even in the bathrooms. The staff will allow you to view the rooms first before paying. Cash is the only form of tender accepted. The staff speaks Arabic, French, and some English. Our impression with this hostel is you get what you pay for!
