Equity Point Marrakech wins Hostelbookers Cleanliness Award for Excellence

A few weeks ago Equity Point Marrakech Hostel won the 2012 Hostelbookers Cleanliness Award for Excellence and we’re really pleased by the recognition.

This award wouldn’t be possible without all the efforts of our Marrakech housekeeping team, the women who work every day at the hostel and that appear in the picture.

Thanks to all the Marrakech staff for all the efforts that had led us to have such a quality hostel.

Don’t get lost on your way to Equity Point Marrakech

Marrakech is a city with winding streets where it is extremely easy to get lost. For that reason we have a really detailed map explaining with precision how to get to Equity Point Marrakech.

But even with the most perfect map, Marrakech Medina’s can be hard, but also charming, the first time you get there. For that reason we want to share a video made by one of our guests that shows the way from Djemaa-el-Fna to Equity Point Marrakech.

Equity Point Hostels WYSTIC Party

WYSTICparty

This year’s WYSTIC annual conference is taking place in Barcelona, our home land. So we decided to host a huge party at Equity Point Centric terrace. Later we took some busses and went to Shoko, a club close to the beach.

We had a great time eating, drinking and hanging out with everybody, so here you’ve got some pictures. It’s nice to meet year after year the same people and have fun with them at the same time we’re doing business.

Today it’s WYSTIC last day, but we’re already willing to go to San Diego next year. Will you meet us there?
