Felt like family!


Great location in the medina and lovely courtyard. Rooms could get a bit hot in the summer and mosquitoes were an issue. There's no toilet paper and only one of the toilets has a seat . That said, it's great value and the manager, Mounir is exceptionally helpful and accommodating. His hospitality during Ramadan made the experience amazing.

Nice one cobber


Seems difficult to find at first with the myriad of the medina but it's really a straigt 7 or 8 min. walk to Victory place. Owner left breakfast out overnight because I was leaving for early morning flight. Laid out around a traditional riad with good bathroom and washing facilities. Rooms come with fans.


No frills hostel, but lovely space. Staff is direct. As other reviewers have stated the location is inside the central Medina (the shopping/market area) in Tunis. It's a convenient location, but keep in mind that the Medina is a maze of streets that shuts down by 8pm. I walked through alone at night once. I was fine, but its not something I would advise.


Great atmospheric base for exploring Tunis area. Basic dorm, clean, hot shower, decent coffee, good WiFi ..no power points in dorm, but plenty down stairs in the court yard.


The hostel is nice and the first floor with a great ambiance; the beds are comfortable. However, the bathrooms could be cleaner and there must be a sewage problem because the smell was quite strong. Location is inside the Medina which people say can be a bit dangerous at night, but I didn't feel unsafe at any moment.


The only hostel in Tunis! Atmosphere wasn't very backpacker-y, but I don't think many backpackers go to Tunisia in the first place. The staff I found to be very kind and helpful for sure. Their English isn't great, so French helps. Cute place in the heart of the medina!


The hostel has a wonderful family feel—communal dinners, breakfasts, and there is a general enthusiasm for people to meet each other. The director is very helpful and eager to tell you about the city. A delightful, authentic experience in the beautiful city of Tunis!

The rooms can get pretty hot since there isn't a lot of circulation in the rooms. Some of them have fans which helps a little. Otherwise, it's a pretty building with some aging (but functional and clean) facilities. Staff is friendly, though it helps if you know Arab or French since English seems to be limited.
