While the facilities were adequate and the staff was friendly, the desert tour that is sponsored by funky fes was poorly run and debatably worth the cost. No AC on on drive or in hotel, no lunch (because Ramadan), silent driver, and while in the desert the hotel staff are equally unenthusiastic and uncaring. The plus side of it was the pool, the friendly Berbers, and the fact that, because everyone didn't care about you, you could just go wander out into the desert all day if you wanted to.

Although initially a little tricky to find, we found Funky to be in a great location, a mere 5 minute walk from the Medina. The staff, especially Mohamed, were very accommodating and helpful, providing us with dinner even as late as 11pm! As we were in Fes during Ramadan, a lot of the shops were closed so we ate at Funky. It was always delicious and good value for money. We would also recommend the morning walking tour as the guide was very knowledgeable. A great stay at Funky, thank you!

Overall nice hostel


80%

The large communal areas, sight seeing tours and dinner provided by the hostel (for a small additional fee) are great ways to get to know other guests as well as seeing the city. However, the staff seemed a little bit rude at times and the hostel's rules and regulations were printed all over the walls on every corner you turned which made you feel a little bit "on edge" at times. Overall a great experience and I would recommend this for anyone looking for a good, cheap and social hostel!

Great and fun hostel with all necessary amenities and nice, organised staff.

AVOID FES if you can. It's expensive (the most expensive out of 5 cities we visited), people are aggressive & lots of harassment toward women. If you do risk it and go, stay at Funky Fes. Good atmosphere, spacious rooms with a shared bathroom & great terrace. The kitchen has minimal utensils but it's doable. Breakfast is basic but that's common in hostels. Dinners are available, they're pricey, 50DH (avg is 35DH), but you tend to not want to venture out after all the cat calling and stares.

A good hostel but a couple small things, terrace closed at midnight, food is somewhat pricey (but very good), guided desert tours are pricey. Staff is very helpful, good accommodations, good free breakfast, right by the Medina. Overall a good choice.

thank you. We have funky dinner for 40 dhrs (less than 4 euros). Our tours have the same price that in other hostels because we use the same transport companies. We are glad that you appreciate our staff and you choise us for accommodation.

Slept well, comfortable beds. 4 person dorm had its own bathroom. Very clean. Only 2 sockets out of 8 had electricity in the room. Nice balcony outside dorm. Problem as people who smoke it comes into the dorm & some people stay up late at night talking, difficult to sleep before midnight. Front desk nice but more interested in selling tours. Do the dessert trip yourself, cheaper, you see more & all the riads in Merzourga make arrangements for less. Fez stay 1 day & 1 or 2 nights

Thank your, dear, for your comment. We are in the Medina and when the shops close there is not much atmosphere. We try to create it at Funky.

Great hostel to meet other people. It's clean and conveniently located in the medina. Dinners are of good quality and size. Staff were very friendly. I'd highly recommend the guided walking tour organised by the hostel.

Nice hostel tucked away from the bustle of primary medina. Can be a slight challenge to find but that is all of Fes. Met some cool people here and liked that they have both a main floor and roof top common area! Staff were nice and helpful. Also useful that they have fridge/kitchen if you want to avoid the madness outside of the hostel.

Do the walking tour with the hostel in the morning and that's about all you need. It's like four hours for 5 bucks and the guide is unreal.

thank you. Our Medina tour is very good. After 3 hours of visit you really know the culture and some history of Fez and Morocco.

It was my first time in Morocco and funky fes completely made me feel at home. The staff were extremely friendly and the atmosphere was great! It is located outside of the medina, which is perfect as you get to go away from all the craziness. I would definitely recommend going to funky fes,

Comfortable beds and excellent staff. Will answer any questions about excursions and even tell you about the little extras the company will charge you for (like which meals are free and which aren't, etc). Definitely stay here and book a trip. I recommend 3 days/2 nights in Sahara, any less isn't enough to see much.

The Funky Fes staff is excellent. I have stayed at many hostels and I found the staff at Funky Fes particularly friendly and hospitable. Also, the free breakfast at Funky Fes is a real meal! In my experience many hostels that advertise free "breakfast" don't give you much more than toast and instant coffee. The hostel has many activities organized so it is easy to get to know the city and other guests.

Mohammed was wonderful!! He remembered everyone's names and was extremely helpful in his recommendations. Extremely friendly and a delight to have at the hostel! Terrific location very close to the medina and the gate. Taxis, buses, and restaurants were also very close.

I stayed at Funky Fes twice and was in a different room each time. In the first room the bedding was quite thin with some holes. Maybe time for some new sheets. The breakfasts were delicious though! I loved the location as it was always easy to find my way home. Also really close by to taxis so getting to bus station and other things in the new town was easy. Mohammed at reception was helpful, kind and always smiling!
