It's a very nice place 5 minutes far from the old city center.The building and the private rooms are amasing,espacially for an hostel.However if your looking for live hostel to spend your nights maybe it's not the perfect place for you,it's calme since the family lives in same place.But still it's possible to spend time at terrace with a very nice view.Owner is a very nice person,we missed our flight and he really helped us to find another one.So I would recommend this hostel,you won't regret.

Nice atmosphere in the common room where breakfast is served and Ben was interesting to talk to. The double rooms are a bit pricey compared to what we paid in the rest of Morocco but may be normal for Fes. Free wifi throughout the hostel, even on the terrace. At first the instructions to the hostel seemed complicated but it turned out to be very easy to find.

What I liked about the hostel was that it was located centrally, in a beautiful old house. I was taken back a bit by the dormitory, which was a ultra-crowded room on the roof of the house, much colder than the rest of the house this time of the year.

Hi Beat, Thank you for your review and your appreciation of our home, which was Bens childhood home. The dormitory is quite standard for a hostel in terms of space and amount of people per room and is also about half the price of the private rooms, though it contains its own bathroom and shower. I've also installed a heater in the room recently so that guests staying in that room are comfortable with the temperature. Cheers! Dominique

It provides everything you look for on a typical Riad. I must mention Ben; the owner. He knows how to offer best service to a guest. Next time I hope having more time to enjoy the terrace...

Our stay at Dar Lalla Kenza was great. Ben was a very helpful host who gave us great options for a trip to the desert. The room was comfortable and the common area was a nice space to spend time in. We really liked the homely experience of this hostel and we all agreed that it was one of the best hostels we have stayed in. Would definitely recommend!

Thanks a million - great feedback ! Good to hear that your enjoyed the Desert Trip and friendly staff! We hope to see you again! Kind regards.-Cheers! Ben.

This place is fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone. A beautiful tile covered Riad, chilled out atmosphere, roof terrace with a view over the whole medina, and its on the slightly less touristic side of the medina meaning that as soon as you step out the front door you can explore the myriad of winding alleys, smells of spices and foods. Ben is a great host, he made our time so relaxed and helped us arrange a trip to the desert, no pressure, just whatever you like. If you are in Fez, come!

We were happy that our journey in Marocco started there. Nice traditional riad with a very friendly and helpful young manager. Good location on the edge of medina but can be reached by taxi. Ben spoke good English and helped to organise our plans for Marocco and to get addapted in this country. Good choise to stay in Fes.

Easily in my top two hostels. Location is perfect, right next to the Medina with plenty of cafés, eateries and market stalls around. The hostel itself is beautiful, the bathrooms clean with plenty of hot water and the terrace has a magnificent view, perfect for relaxing in the sun. Ben, the hostel owner, was happy to answer all my questions from Medina prices to places to eat to Morocco itself. Thanks to both Ben and Mohammed Couscous (AKA Cody) for making Fes a true stand out on my travels.
