The number of days you should spend in Chefchaouen, Morocco depends on your travel preferences and itinerary. Chefchaouen is a small town, but it has a lot to offer in terms of natural beauty, culture, and history.
If you are interested in exploring the town and its surroundings in a leisurely manner, I would suggest spending at least two to three days in Chefchaouen. This will give you enough time to explore the narrow streets of the old Medina, visit the Kasbah Museum, hike in the RIF Mountains, and soak in the famous blue-washed walls of the town.
If you are short on time, you could still get a taste of Chefchaouen in one day, but you would have to prioritize the attractions you want to visit. In this case, I would suggest visiting the Kasbah Museum, strolling around the blue streets, and taking a short hike to the Spanish Mosque.
Ultimately, it depends on how much time you have available and what you want to experience in Chefchaouen.
