How to get to Equity Point Marrakech Hostel
Click here to download the map to get to the Equity Point Marrakech hostel
Three minutes walk from the Djemaa el-Fna in the heart of the souks, Equity Point Marrakech is in the noble part of the Medina: Mouassine.
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 “Café 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.
·From Bab Ksour:
Once you are there, pass through the arch, and follow the street “Rue Side el Yamani” during aprox. 5 minutes, this is a calm street with not many shops. After a while though, the shops will start, and very soon you'll find a street on your right, it's Mouassine street, don't take it. Just right after you've left this street behind, your street will begin to have a roof, keep on walking and a few more steps ahead you'll see the entrance of a mosque on your right, keep walking straight ahead. After a few more steps you will be in an open space, now you're almost there. On your left there's a street, don't take it. On your right there's an arch, this is the beginning of our street: Derb el Hamman, you can see the sign on the right of the arch.
In this street there are no shops:
- after you pass through the arch go straight ahead 45 steps (aprox) and
- walk 20 steps more and turn right
- 7 more steps and make it left
- 50 more steps and turn right
- 30 more steps and you're there. Door number 80. Welcome!!
Follow the signs to the hostel
It is very easy to get lost in the Medina of Marrakech, even with guides and maps, so we’ve added some yellow and black signs on the walls to make it easier to get to the hostel. We’ve painted the two paths to the hostel, both from the Djemaa el-Fnaa and from the Bab Sour. In the Bab Sour there’s also a sign that points the beginning of the way.
