The hostel is convenient because you can walk all over Tunis from there, but being in the medina, it can be a bit intimidation to first-time guests and slightly scary walking back to at night. The building is incredibly charming but could use a little upkeep. The showers are cold and the toilets not always kept clean, but the large salle is lovely. Bring your own bed sheets and toilet paper. Staff doesnt speak English or even very good French, so communication can be difficult. Free wifi.
The only good thing about this hostel was the location. The staff was unpleasant, unprepared and with a very poor or none English. There was no access to the kitchen, so no way of use any fridge or microwave. The bread of the breakfast was old and uneatable. Everything was incredibly dirty and the bathroom was even smelling bad. NO AIR CONDITIONING in the summer time and not even a ventilator in the bedroom. We were melting during the night. A very bad stay for sure!
It was a funny experience. It's not very clean and you need to use your sheets because the bedrooms are very very dirty but it was funny and very cheap experience.
I loved staying in this hostel because the house is beautiful. It's an excellent example of North African architecture, with a spacious and sunny covered courtyard. Unlike many similar places I've stayed in, though, the common areas were very beautifully furnished. The breakfast was generous and reliable, and the manager very friendly once you get to know him. There's also an interesting diversity of guests -- not all backpackers. I liked it so much I plan to be back in a few weeks.
