I enjoyed my stay at Funky. Good atmosphere, well located, nice and friendly staff, good base for trips, good breakfast included and reasonably priced lunches/dinners available. Nice social terraced area too, with a good view of Fes. My room was clean, with nice ensuite bathroom. My only negative point concerns temperature. The hostel could be cold at night. The staff did fur heaters some days (not always) which helped. I had to request heating to be turned on in my room several times.
Funky Fes is easily the best hostel in Fes. The staff behind the desk were very pleasant and extremely helpful. Their welcome email and video made finding them incredibly easy. Their guided tour of the city was the perfect way to see the sites. The facilities were clean, their free breakfast the best we had in Morocco, and, since the city shuts down at night, it was quite enjoyable to relax in their lounge with some tea after a day of exploring the souks. All around highly recommended.
I stayed three nights in Funky Fez. The stay was really amazing and the food was delicious. This hostel is not super big, which makes it easier to meet new people. The rooftop terrace is really nice and has a nice view over the medina of Fez.
Really nice place with a great atmosphere. Busy, even in winter and has a lot to offer. The stuff could smile a bit more and learn to boil eggs that you can actually peal (put them in cold water after cooking, guys), but we had a great time nonetheless!
I think It's the best Hostel in Fes. But it was really cold in all the places inside the hostel. They don't have heating in the bedroom. The other things were ok.
Well located on the outskirts of the Medina, just before it becomes a maze. Staff were helpful and and always around, but could be a bit more cheerful. The breakfast is good, and in addition to your personal plate there is plenty of bread and jam, tea and coffee. Comfortable beds and plenty of space in the dorms and they have an ensuite with reliable hot water. Great atmosphere in the common areas and very spacious and comfortable. Big roof terrace but it looks outside the Medina.
Great service - even though I was only there for one night.
Friendly and helpful staff, wifi, self catering kitchen and decent breakfast with as much tea and coffee as you wish! No delays with hotwater in the showers and sinks. Comfortable beds for good nights sleep. Tours, outings all well advertised at reasonable prices. Did a guided tour of old medina first day...over 3 hrs for 55dhr. A most excellent hostel... My only criticism was no alcohol was sold or allowed!
Great amenities especially for Morocco (lots of hot water, en suite toilets, AC and heat in rooms), good place to meet other travelers. I would definitely recommend the medina tour offered through the hostel--the guide is excellent. The location is so-so: it is on the edge of the medina, making it easy to arrive to and from the airport, but you generally have to take a cab to the main medina entrance, even though the cab is very cheap. Hostel did not help me arrange a taxi which was one negative
Funky fes is a cool place with a lot of foreigners. You can meet nice people there. The place is quite cheap, the price of food inside and everything are fair. I'm recommanding this place. The people that will welcoming you are not particularly smiling but they are really helpfull.
Good location and nice staff.
Great place to stay. Especially the staff was really helpfull for any kind of questions. We also really liked the guided city tour!
The staff and atmosphere here are great. There are two common rooms which makes it easy to mingle but also possible to find a quite corner. The dorms are basically what you would expect from a hostel. Everyone gets a locker but there is a small charge for using towels. The only negative is that it's a little tricky to find, but that's just due to the layout of the city. They did give very good instruction on how to find the place. And it's only about a 5-7 minute walk to the market.

Good location right in the center of the Medina. Worth taking the walking tour that starts at 10 am each day - costs less than €5! Clean rooms and a good hub for backpackers.
Overall, we really enjoyed our time at Funky Fes. The staff was very welcoming and helpful and the location is great--right in the medina. The food at the restaurant is really good; I would recommend the chicken pastilla. The only negative thing was that during our stay in late December, the heat didn't work so the room was freezing. Other than that, we would definitely recommend this hostel!

I had a great stay at Funky Fez!! The staff was very friendly
Location was far from the main area of the medina, took at least 15 minutes. One bathroom between 12 people was pretty horrible. Plus the bathroom stank of mould and dampness, it was pretty horrible! Breakfast was pretty good though!
The Funky Fez was a really great place, but one of the staff members was kind of rude. All over the hostel are these big signs about fake guides and how to avoid, but when one of them followed me to the hostel and wanted money, the staff member working was absolutely no help in getting him to leave me alone. In fact, he told me I had to go out and pay the guy. That wasn't a huge deal, but for a place that tries to combat these guys so much, I was really surprised.
I really enjoyed my time here. The staff are friendly and helpful and the guests are all great people.
Great except total rip off for food, taxis and tours. Would be nice if they had fair prices, taxi price to bus was 3 times what I found on the street. Tour I took was total rip off as well, shame since the hostel was great.
