We were in the 6 bed dorm so we were in the facilities across the street. The staff at this location were not the most helpful. They were not pleased to help us find our way around. Facility was great. The roof was a nice place to hang out.

There is many hustlers in the street ,sometimes even when we meet some guest in the street they don't trust us . we usually send an email with the directions after the booking we provide a free pick up from the Blue gate when the guest the call . if they didn't call we can't do anything . Regards

Lovely hostel with a great location - located within the medina but not the mind-boggling alleyways in the center where you are sure to get lost without a guide. Breakfast is fantastic and rooms are very clean, very helpful staff available to help organize anything you may need. They also came to pick us up and took us to our taxi on our last day to prevent us getting lost. Highly recommended!

I would definitely recommend this hostel, the staff were very kind, offering tea any time you were at reception and the breakfast was really worth it. BUT be careful with the tour guides in Fez, they will take you to the most expensive shops, and tell you that the other shops use chemical products and so on, which is only to make you pay more. Our guide also told us the tanneries were all under reconstruction in Fez, because the shop he brought us to was, but it wasn't true and we never saw them

The six-room dorm is actually located in a different place: Dar Zohor. The staff seem really into asking where you're REALLY from if you're Asian, which is kinda odd. That said, facilities are fine, and breakfast is individually served.

Staff always welcoming and friendly. It provides a great place to crash in the middle of the medina. Hostel a bit small but perfect fine to feel comfortable and rest your energy. When I went the place was almost empty, but I'm sure it must be a nice environment to meet new travelers coming along. Breakfast was fantastic.

The staff is very friendly and always ready to help. Local mosaic and cedar wood give in this property really add to the experience. The beds arent very comfortable but the rooms are quite spacious and have everything you need. And the complementary breakfast..my god...so good!

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.

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.

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.
