Chez Youseff is fantastic! Youseff, the owner, is absolutely amazing and has made our trip! His guesthouse is gorgeous, clean and comfortable in a quiet location just off the end of a main street in merzouga. The food that is prepared is delicious and authentic and his desert camp is everything you would imagine a Sahara camp to be. It...

Our room was probably the nicest we had in Morocco. Youssef is incredibly welcoming and helpful and the food was great. Youssef also organised a perfect desert trip - just one other couple in a small and remote camp with music and the stars.

Chez Youssef is small and cozy in the heart of Merzouga. Youssef is a wonderful host and provides a variety of services to make your stay more pleasant. Do take him up on his camel safari as his yurts in the desert are far and away better than what you will find elsewhere. The food back at the hotel is...

Youssef treats you like family and ensures your stay is comfortable and that you get what you want out of the stay. His home cooking is delicious. Rooms are comfortable and he can hook you up with a great guided experience in Erg Chebbi

We arrived here after a long ride from the dundes gorge and got greeted traditionally with thee by the ever friendly youssef. A really good host who is in this business because he genuinely loves it which you notice directly. I'd advice to definitely eat here instead of the few restourants in town. They cook a neat couscous and kefta....

We stayed here for a night before and after going into the dessert. The guesthouse is small and homely with only a few rooms. Youssef was one of the nicest hosts we had, he was friendly and helpful. Breakfast and dinner were served in a small courtyard - the food was cooked by Youssef and was excellent. The rooms were...

The breakfast was one of the best in Marokko. Youssef was very friendly and super helpful. The camp, he organized, was one of the highlights of our trip - a lot of stars and galaxies to see :) The tagines you get are fantastic and Youssef does even real Italian espresso.

My girlfriend and I did a Morocco trip and we traveled from Fes to Merzouga, because we wanted to see the dessert. When we arrived early in the morning in Merzouga and we had to wait till the evening before our dessert trip would start. It was already really hot, but lucky for us Youssef was already waiting for us...

Youssef was by far the best host we had during our two weeks in Morocco. From the moment we arrived he made us feel right at home. His house is tastefully decorated, with several different areas to sit. Our room was very nice, comfortable and clean. We had A/C in our room and the WiFi signal was good. We stayed...

The place is a very typical building in the town of Merzouga, and inside is very clean and nicely decorated. The rooms are pretty and the beds are very comfortable. Youssef is very kind, he speaks many languages and he is happy to help with any issue you might have. He can also organise a trip by camel to the...
