The transfers were very professional, recommended as there can be a lot of hassle at airports and train stations there, especially at night. Food was lovely and staff.. Owner did charge more than hostel world price.
The location is VERY sketchy at night. A man harassed us from the gate all the way to the hostel, pushed himself inside, then demanded we pay him. Also, due to a miscommunication with the reservation, we (a group of three) booked a six-person room assuming we'd be put in a room with three other people and were instead given the entire room and forced to pay for all of it. The staff did provide us with an escort out of the medina when we had to leave at night though, and that was nice
The hostel is nice and has an excellent position in the old Medina of Fez. However, PLEASE PLEASE do not take the FAKE, unofficial guides that the owner will invite you to hire to discover the Medina. They will just bring you to loads of shops to buy super expensive/overpriced stuff and get commissions out of it. Very dishonest behavior from the owner and the guide, worth saving this money for something else. You will not get lost in the Medina, there are signs for the main sites!!
One of the best places we have ever stayed. The breakfast was lovely, room was great - shower pressure was excellent, hot water all day and the staff were amazing. They even provide Moroccan mint tea all day on request. Abdul was fantastic too and will organise a medina tour at a local price which was the highlight of our time in Fes. 10 out of 10 for sure.
We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful in the heart of the old city in Fez. The staff were very helpful, although we are broke backpackers and their recommendations for food places were a little out of our price range, everything else was fantastic though. The roof top is fantastic, it has a great view over the city.
The owners, two brothers, were really friendly and helpful with everything. The old house is beautiful and the terrace amazing.
Beautiful Riad, beautiful roof top terrace. Staff went out of their way to help me - including escorting me to find food once it got dark in the medina! Highly recommend.
Amazing riad! The staff were incredible and went out of their way to help us multiple times. Our trip to Fes definitely wouldn't have been the same if we didn't stay here!
