The Equity Point group has put all its experience into the design of this hostel to set the standard in the city for travellers who are searching for a unique and authentic experience.
The city of Marrakech combines perfectly the increasing modernity visible in the new city, with one of the most emblematic historic centres of the world. The new surrounding areas, tourist centres, stores and big avenues like Mohamed V are strikingly contrasted with the old walled city and the Medina, where time seems to have stopped some centuries ago. The endless labyrinth of the �Soug� market streets north of the Plaza Jemaa el-Fna and all its hustle and bustle, the narrow streets and frescoes where only lost tourists looking for their riad and the odd cat break the silence.
Let yourself be seduced by the contrasts, colours and smells of the Medina. Immerse yourself in the fascinating activities taking on the mythical Plaza Djemaa el-Fna, the only place in the world where every day of the year you can find snake charmers, dozens of stores selling fresh juice, restaurants, bars, musicians, traditional water-sellers and acrobats.
The Equity Point group welcomes you to its newest destination city, we hope to be able to share it with you soon.

It's not difficult to get to the hostel, however we are in the center of the old Medina of Marrakech, and this means: winding streets, lots of lefts and rights, and until you get used to it, most of the streets might look very similar to one another.
We believe that with these indications it will be easy to find us, however if you feel lost, you can always ask someone from a shop (or in the streets, but they might ask for a small tip of 20Dhm). Everybody knows us: ask for Equity point in the Mouassine and people will help. Finally you can always give us a call, and we�ll pick you up.
From Djemaa el-Fnaa:
The easiest way to get to the hostel is from the famous Djemaa el-Fnaa square. Ask your cab driver to leave you at what is popularly known as �Caf� Argana� although the canopy reads �Restaurant Argana�. The name �Argana� is written in large letters on the roof of the premises. If you arrive by bus, or the square is closed to cars, look for this cafe, or ask someone to show you the way to it. It�s located on one of the corners of the square.
Facing the cafe, take the street immediately to the left. Very soon you will get to an open space. Cross this taking the street on your left under the archway. Pass through the arch and you'll be in Mouassine street. This is a fairly wide street (for the Medina standards), with shops left and right. Walk straight down this street. Soon on your right you'll see a small corner shop called 'Fnaque Berber' followed by another arch, walk directly through it. After approximately 100 meters you'll get to a small open space (or a place where the street widens), once you enter this area you will find a small arch behind and to your right. This is a slight u-turn but do not worry as our street starts there! You can read its name at the top of the arch: 'Derb Laghnaiz Lamouassine'. Pass through the arch and walk down three steps. You're almost there. This street has no shops and in most parts is roofed. Walk and don't leave the wall on your left. After 50-60 meters of walking down this winding street, you'll find a door with our name on it: 'Equity Point'. Welcome!!
From the airport, you can either take the bus or a cab, the bus will leave you at the Djemaa el-Fna square, and if you arrive by train at ONCF train station, take the bus number 8 to Djemaa el-Fnaa square.
From 10am to 9pm, taxis or cars are not allowed to drive through Djemaa el-Fna square, the square is huge so you can choose to cross it and then follow the indications above or else ask the cab driver to leave your at Bab Ksour.
