The location is great as it is easy to navigate from the blue gate. A bonus when considering the endless maze of the medina. Staff are funny and helpful. Endless hot water highly appreciated in winter.
nice hostel. i recomend. very tradicional.
good location near main medina gates very clean and had ensuite bathrooms and showers. even though there was mny people staying at the hostel there was not much 'vibe' but could have been due to time of year, nice roof top terrance
Very good breakfast. Very good location. A little weird that there is a double bed in a four-bed dorm. There is also only one key per dorm, so if someone leaves with it, might be difficult to get in the room. All in all, it's a good place to stay. They offered us breakfast when we got there early in the morning, even if the booking was effective only for later that day. They left us food for our trip on an early bus too.
Highly recommend Dar El Yasmine. The staff is extraordinary! So helpful for recommendations and guiding us around the city. The owner called the restaurant that we were interested in and had a guy come pick us up to walk us to the restaurant. We left our bags at the Riad for one day when we ventured off to Chefchauoen, and they kept our bags safe for us, then when we left on our desert excursion in the morning they had a bag with breakfast in it for our trip. Highly recommend this Riad! :)
When I arrived at Dar El Yasmine, I got taken to another "hostel" named Dar Zohor because I was told by the owner there were no dormrooms at Dar Yasmine..a bit strange... It's a 1min walk from BabBouJeloud. The shared bathroom was clean. It's very noisy as the upper dormrooms are open and connected to the patio below.The staff was OK. They bought me breakfast to take away as I was leaving early. If you're looking for a great place to meet people and hang out on the terrace, look elsewhere.
Clean room, hot shower, and a great breakfast. What more could you ask for? :)
Great value for price. Beautiful riad. Delicious crepe breakfast. Recommend half day guided tour but be wary of been taken at tannery. They insist you first choose everything before giving a price since it's a "package" deal. I ended up succumbing to the saleseman's charm and good looks and foolishly paid more than what I would have paid in Canada. He will tell you the money goes towards healthcare of the workers. 2 days in Fes is more than enough for most people.
Everything ok. Good staff, relax, huge breakfast, good location in la medina. Lovely ryad although some rooms downstairs are very dark but that(s to be expected in Fès.

Staff was incredibly helpful and well spoken. The manager showed us to a really great restaurant (we ate there twice) and organized a private guided tour for us.
Aziz was great - lots of energy and excitement about Fes. I am sure that his plans of expansion will be even better than the original Dar El Yasmine. Great breakfast too.
staff are overworked and sleep in guest recreational areas. ddifficult to smoke after midnight
A good place to stay in Fes, centrally located (8 min walk from the tanneries). Rooms were clean, a bit on the dark side with a slight damp feel, but all in all a good value for money and Mohammed (the manager) is very helpful.
We (group of three guys) had a lovely stay at El Yasmine. The room was clean, air-conditioned and very quiet as the Riad is located in a small street. All the facilities in the bathroom were perfectly working. There are two cosy communal spaces (the ground floor and a big balcony on the top of the building) where we had the occasion to meet the other guests and to chat with the two guys managing the Riad (very friendly and helpful) . The breakfast was delicious and generous.
Good hostel in comparison to other Moroccon hostels ie. clean, good shower. Thought that Mohammed could have being more helpful in giving us information about places to go and that the hostel lacked a good vibe.
Really happy to help; arranging day trips, transfers or guides. Had WiFi. The rooms had locks (although they did change covers and empty bins daily).

i actually stayed in the sister hostel zohor,, i had a lovely time in fez,, the guys who work at the hostel were friendly and helpfull,, i would def stay again
Occasionally things might feel a bit less organized, but it's a city with a relaxed spirit altogether. It's a gorgeous hostel just off the hustle and bustle of the Medina, with minor short-comings here and there that don't really take from the experience.
Very clean and comfortable rooms. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful and organised a great tour of of Fez with Hussan. Breakfasts us going for most of the day too!
