    Very nice hostel, but strange rules. Also, the night I stayed at that hostel all guests were told to leave the common area because the receptionist has to go to bed at midnight (on the couch in the common area), Also terrace was closed, so somehwat really weird. Apart from that, I can recommend this hostel.

Cancellation Policy

This property has a 2 day cancellation policy.
Failure to cancel within this time will result in a cancellation charge equal to the first night of your stay, unless otherwise stated below (see 'Things to Note' information).

Things to Note

Please note that by law, we do not accept Muslims, who want to share bedrooms with non-Muslims out of wedlock or Moroccans or Algerians. Girls-only groups must be back by 11pm for your safety and no non-residents are allowed in the Riad. We do have a nightclub with live DJ til midnight most nights, sound carries (bring earplugs if you are noise sensitive), not suitable for people over 40 or small kids, alcohol and sheisha served. Most of our guests are under 40, we do not accept guests over 40 – sorry! If you still make a booking and are over this age limit you must accept our breakfast times and that this is a party Riad. Please note that a tourist tax of 45 DHM per person per night is not included in our rates. Please include this in your budget calculations. Payment is to be made on arrival in local currency or in Euros. There is a 5% surcharge to pay your balance by credit card; the card machine will only be used if Noor or Leanora are present. You will likely be approached by faux guides who will tell you our Riad doesn't exist in order to take you to their uncles Riad where they will get a commission. Do not engage in the services of a FG as you will be taken on a money-grabbing tour of Fes with up to 50% mark-ups on anything you purchase. If you would like an Official Guide, the Riad has three who we work with who speak amazing English, Spanish and French and you will feel relaxed, hassle-free and you will have a fair tour with no hidden costs.
