At the hotel they played disco music at a high volume from 11 am til 12 pm. Since the rooms are arranged around the inner patio, it is impossible to overhear that music in any way. In the evening they also add disco lights and smoke machines in the small patio. I think the atmosphere created was in stark contrast with the architecture and style of the house and felt more like in an Amsterdam coffee shop than a Riad in a thousand-year old medina.

Great hostel stay, beautiful decor, nice staff; Music played loudly until midnight was strange because even if it was like a "party hostel" they were really strict on guests and policies (unlike other hostels ive stayed in). One suggestion would be allowing outside guests in the common room, especially if under supervision, and playing the music low enough so people can talk but still enjoy the atmosphere; overall great stay and the owner was really cool
This was a bizarre hostel experience. The hostel itself is beautiful and the facilities are all very good. Everything is clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfast was tasty and filling, and the experience would otherwise be five stars, if it wasn't for the pounding techno music that started at 5pm and did not stop until midnight. I'm all for fun party experiences at hostels, but there was no booze and getting blasted with a fog machine wasn't fun.
Pros: best atmosphere ever. gorgeous. clean. helpful staff. very clean. stylish. cons: no lockers. no kitchen. iffy wifi. no maps. Also Youssef (who was great) took us out to dinner- a very expensive dinner, which we didn't know about. They will try to sell you lots of extras. No matter what they tell you, you do NOT need a guide. Get lost. have fun. you will find your way back somehow. more fun to stop whenever you want. be firm about not spending more money if you are on a tight budget.
