Great place to stay where you can meet people and chill out. The hostel was pretty cool and cheap as well for a private or dorm. Mo mo who runs the hostel is a great dude and so was all the staff. We hanged out on the roof played cards, chatted, and they played footy in the morning if that’s your thing. I will defo be back at the Atlantic hostel next time I’m here! Great fun!

Atlantic is the best in Essaouira. I enjoyed my time there. I felt at home there every night. A really great dinner. Berber. After dinner, the music and dance stage are all beautiful and wonderful. I will be back soon.

When we were in Marrakech everyone was talking about the guys at Atlantic Hostel. It sounded like the same old same old type of back packer ramblings but after six months on the road ‘The Best This’ and ‘The Best That’ really looses all meaning. Fast forward a week later, we’re walking through the market street of Essaouria looking for our turn into the medina. Between the fruit displays, food carts and mixed shops we see the obeachy and well aged sign for Atlantic Hostel. From there its only a 50 meters to the door but my man Simoking AKA Smoking has already spotted your backpack and is with the rest of the boys cheering you in. More like a Japanese Izakaya than a reception, everyone is shouting your name, introducing themselves, and horsing around. Between jokes and paper work someone has offered you tea, a guitar is being strummed, drums are being played and you’re five new friends into your new home. Following Simoking, we spiral our way up the eight, nine or five storeys (who’s keeping track) to the rooftop terrace. This is where all the magic happens. Whether I was gazing out at the smoke rising from the bakery chimneys, the mist coming in from the ocean or letting your eyes hop along the countless rooftops of the Moroccan skyline, there’s no doubt that this is the rooftop I want to be on.
