My brother an I dad a great time staying at this hostel. The staff were super friendly and helpful. They offered us lots of "the a la menthe" (mint tea) and helped us organized several enjoyable activities. The location is central right near lots of restaurants and an easy walk from the Blue Gate. We stayed in 3 or 4 different guesthouses during our trip to Morocco and this was by far the best one.
Dar El Yasmine was so much more then we expected. This house located in a beautifully restored Riad was an absolute delight to stay in. The wood decorative features along with the fountain and ceramic work in the interior courtyard/living area was stunning. This place had all the modern facilities and the most clean and nice bathroom i came across on my two week stay in Morocco. It is conveniently located just off one of the two main streets in the heart of the Medina in fes. Staff are amazing!
Nice place and very helpful staff. They gave us a great reception and were attentive to our needs during the entire stay. The location inside the Medina is excellent!

Great stay with friendly, helpful staff.
lovely staff and really gorgeous building. fun experience!
The location is simply amazing. the staff is very very helpful and great! i found it a bit expensive for the kind of hostel it is, but every thing else was really good!
The staff here is OUTSTANDING!!!! They arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport, then they met us AT MIDNIGHT and escorted us through the dark and empty streets to the riad. This place is adorable and the breakfast is gigantic.
helpful and friendly staff...nice breakfast..heater needed for winter season
In general I would say is ok for the price you pay. Breakfast is ok as well and the rooms are fine.Just one thing to tell... We asked them to give us a guide around fez because we wanted to visit the city without being annoyed by the locals(quite often there).The guide whose name is Ali was awful.He guided us just to one gate (to see the monument) and the rest of the guide tour was simply visiting shops to buy stuff from Morocco.It was a commercial guide tour rather than a touristic one.no good.
Best riad we stated in Morroco. It felt like home from the first moment. The staff are extremely welcoming and helpful. We were greeted with mint tea and lots if useful tips and recommendations. The staff arranged a city guide and a visit to the hammam which were both great. The riad has a great atmosphere, a lovely tarrace and is very nicely decorated. Great location in the medina. Would definitely recommend it!!!
My only concern was that there were no lockers for valuables and so this didn't feel very secure. The two Mohammeds were very friendly and very helpful, especially at helping us to find our way in and out of the medina. Also they were very good at booking tours for us and arranging for us to be met at the railway station.
It was a great experience; very clean; quiet and nice. Everyone was very helpful, the breakfast was great.
We had three stays at different times and each time slept at a different hostel of them. But they were close by, of equal or superior standard and they made all the changes really comfortable for us. The people are open and nice, but of course one should (as always in Morocco) keep in mind that they are first of all businessmen. Highly recommended!!!
Well we stayed in an annex to the real hostel, its always a bit more boring . Lacking the real hostel feeling where you meet other travelers. The dorm with its own bathroom was really good, breakfeast was really good. A bit too easy to make noise in the middle to disturb the whole hostel. We miss a locker box for our values. Very nice shower. Guy in reception was really friendly.
We stayed in Dar El Yasmine for 2 nights on our trip through Morocco. Although it was in the Medina it was easy to find and they picked us up at the Main Gate even in the middle of the night. The room was quite good, but it wasn´t tidied up when wie arrived. There were still traces of our forerunners, like used soap and so on... The atmosphere in Dar El Yasmine was not bad, they offered free tea nealry 24//7 and the breakfast was great.The rooftop terrace was very nice. Greetings Jasmin
Great Place, and the owner is not only helping you in the Hotel but he is also running around the streets helping you and other guests. Impressive.

Great place with very friendly staff. Big breakfast with more than just the usual honey crepes. Perfect place in the medina, 2 mins from the main gate.
Riad is bit difficult to find when you are for the first time in medina so be prepared or call the staff to pick you up from the main gate, it's free. It has a great space once you enter the building, beautiful, easy and friendly. The staff is very good and the guy we met was just plain fun to be with, helpful and in good mood all the time. Breakfasts were perfect! The only flaw was that there was a musty smell in our room as it was the one with the fountain at the other side of the wall.
A great base to have in a confusing city!
We booked with Yasmine but ended up staying in Zohour (same owner). Muhammad really looked out for us and was very accomodating. The only concern was the lack of hot water, which was supposedly being fixed. Cold showers are not fun...
