wouldn't mind the hostel otherwise, but we were taken to another hostel and charged the same amount even though we had already booked this one. very dishonest practices and inconvenient for us, music too loud, couldn't trust management. we knew there was room in the hostel but they told us there wasn't. wouldn't recommend, very bad experience. people have had similar experiences based on other reviews, and we overheard others were being moved as well as we sat in the lobby.


When you stay at a hostel in Morocco you expect that it's going to be your safe haven from all the people on the street trying to rip you off, instead when we stayed there they were the ones who ripped us off the most. The tours they organised were all scamming us too The music they play until late, end up driving everyone to their rooms instead of helping them to socialise. Please don't stay here stay somewhere where they will look after you, where you won't be ripped off.


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.


I ended up booking into this hostel because I arrived in Fes early and was sick. The first 2 nights were okay the last was horrible. Loud music till 7 am is not okay. If they offer to run out and get something for you just do it yourself it's cheaper because they charge you triple. Also I had booked here because it said they took credit cards but their machine was broken and they were very unaccommodating. Check out was a hassle as the staff in that morning spoke little English.


Staying here was the best choice i could ever made, the staff is awesome and also the owner! i had a really good time. Also the beds are very confortable and its tea time always! i absolutely recomend it :)

I loved that the Hostel represents so much the culture of Morocco. The architecture, the rooms decoration, the furniture… Everything makes the own hostel a touristic point. it is beautiful to see. The bedroom was clean, and had everything I needed. The workers are adorable and receptive. The breakfast was delicious, and at night, the sounds at the lounge make the atmosphere really nice. Staying at the Riad Verus made my trip to Fez perfect.

There are additional taxes not listed so prices are misleading. There are a few deals offered, be aware that need to pay tax


Hostel manager was awful. There are a lot of confusion with booking: you book one type of room and on arrival you get the other one (cheaper, by the way), when you try to find out the situation hostel manager starts shouting on you. Plus on arrival you need to pay some mysterious taxes which were't pointed during the hostel booking. And awful music extremely loud playing almost the whole night and it is really hard to fall asleep.
