Its been the second time I had been there in a matter of a few month. The main memory from last time was that my companion caught kitchen staff pissing into the wash basins (while toilets were 2m away). That was on the first weekend of December. This time, they opened two of dry bags i left behind when I...

I don't expect luxury from mountain refuges so I was satisfied. It was quite cold inside but warmer than in guesthouse in Imlil, where I was also staying. However lack of hot water in the refuge was a bit troublesome. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and they serve good food. Hot tea just after we came after few...

I hiked mount toubkal with my friends in October this year and it was spectacular! The Refuge has amazing staff members who took care of us every step of the way. I booked our stay through Hamid (great guy). Everything was affordable and they gave us free blankets to keep warm. We chose not to hire a guide but we...

The Refuge is situated in an ideal location at the base of the mountains. The food provided is excellent as are the showers (hot and cold water) and wash room facilities. Be prepared to be cold but the refuge does warm-up when the stoves are lit. There is an excellent boot room, which although not secure, provides plenty of storage...

There are two refuges here. We were in the upper one. Apart from the place makes you feel like you have been captured and are a prisoner of war due to the walls around it, don't go there. The place is absolutely filthy. We were doing trek 3 summits over the 3 days. Only one toilet working properly, no hot...

Located in the mountain of toukbal, this refuge was like a traditional youth hostel it had basic showers and disgusting public toilets. The rooms were beyond freezing in the nights and there was damp on the ceiling. On the plus side the views were brilliant and at least we had a bed to sleep in for the night.

This is a good base camp refuge. It has everything you require from a refuge: Shared dorm, smelly toilets, large communal areas and a buzz from the locals. Care is taken to clean the refuge daily which is hard work for such a transient guests. The place was tidy and warm. Noise at night/in the morning is from the guests...

If you have experience with the mountain huts in the Alps, Pyrenees, or Dolomites, you'd probably judge this one as good, but not great, but it is certainly a welcome respite on the trail. Morocco does not have the same trekking traditions as those other areas, so many of the overnight accommodations along existing routes are very basic or non-existent....

French refuge where I stayed is clean and well maintained. It is run by Alpine Club Francoise so is very popular among the foreigners. The prices are cheap as the Club is a main sponsor and supporter to Refuge budget. In late December I have found plenty of snow around and very cold temperaturę.

This hut is 4-5 hours walking from Imlil. At the end of valley you can find two huts. We stayed in this French Refuge du Toubkal. Here you can sleep in dormitories for 230DH, which are full of blight, take rich dinner 70DH and fresh brakfast for 30DH. Also plenty of soda (15DH), cereal sticks to be available. You can...
