The sinuous streets of Marrakech are a nightmare to tourists which get lost easily. With the aim to help our customers we’ve tried to ease their ways to Equity Point Marrakech by marking all the way to the hostel.

Both paths to the hostel, the one starting at Djemaa el Fnaa and the one starting from Bab Sour, have been marked with yellow and black paints on the walls to guide you right to the hostel. And the beginning of the way, at the Bab Sour, has a sign showing you the star of your way to the hostel.

We’re always trying to improve the service to our customers, and we hope none of you will get lost again. Just look for the marks on the walls.
