About this listing
This hostel Riad is a bargain beyond bargain. Make your travel plans and drink tea without having to leave the swimming pool. With cooking classes on the terrace with views of Place D'Jeema el Fna this is a piece of paradise in the middle of the city
Quite simply - we have an inside plunge pool which for Marrakech heat, is literally the perfect antidote to a crazy shopping morning in the souqs. Enjoy tea... in the pool... make friends... in the pool. Or, take a cooking class on the terrace. There is so much to do, you may find it difficult to leave!
FREE breakfast, FREE wifi, FREE tea and coffee all day, a plunge pool, an amazing rooftop terrace with views of the main square.
You are in the centre of it all, but in a small quiet corner of it. Right next to Place D'Jeema el Fna and in the centre of the souqs, you don't need to pack for a day out. You can just pop out and return to the hostel without having to go out of your way
Walking is the best way to see the city, but there are bus stops and taxis all within 5 minutes of the hostel

The riad dia is a great place to stay in marrakesh. It is located next to the square and the stuff here is so friendly and helpful. I planned to stay there only for one night, but came back there. They're really uncomplicated, if you leave the riad for few days. you can leave your backpack there and you will have a bed when you come back, which is really nice if you go to the desert or coast. I can only recommend the riad, I would stay there again and drink even more free tea at the pool.
This host took my money and then did not email me or answer my calls to confirm the reservation and confirm the location of the residence. I had multiple locals assisting with finding the residence and ended up having to booking another hotel because of no contact.
I've carelessly booked the wrong date of stay. When I realised that I messaged the host to see if I could change the date. But I've never got a response until now. The host seems to be not helpful at all.
I had a great time at Riad Dia. The staff is very laid-back and friendly and generous with breakfast and tea. The location is perfect as it is only a 2 minute walk from the main square and good places to eat. They made getting to and from the airport very easy as well. I would stay here again!
Staying at Riad Dia has been an amazing experience for us. The hostel had a very welcoming vibe to it, very colorful and you feel at home. The hosts are al soooo nice and helpful! Anything we asked, they would get it for us.. They are very open to talk about anything with you! Special thanks go to Happy (Sahid), Nasser and Achmed! We learned so much from them and their culture! Thank you so much for an unforgettable time in Marrakech!

Riad Dia created a very welcoming atmosphere the moment I entered. The tea was delicious, and the area around the pool was perfect to sit and chat with other travelers. The rooftop was my favorite part because you could relax and listen to all the mayhem from Jamaa El-Fna, which is less than a five-minute walk away. The location was also perfect because it was close to the main square, and I didn't feel unsafe as a solo female traveler. The hosts also spoke great English, which was very helpful.

About the Host, Aida
Love independent travel, love independent travellers! Feel that time should be made for tea and cake every day. Twice. It is good for the soul.
It is always joyful to feel as though you are part of an extended family when travelling in new, unknown places. We certainly like to feel that way and hope you do too.
