Contest: Participate at the Marrakech Marathon and Win a Massage

Each year Marrakech hosts one of the world’s most important and competitive marathons and that’s because Moroccan athletes are between the best running long distances. Over 5000 athletes are expected on January 27th to run both, the marathon and the half marathon and we’d love to help them.

So we’re running a contest between the athletes, and we will award a free half an hour leg massage to the three Equity Point Marrakech guests that achieve the best marks at the marathon.

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.

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.
