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.
I really liked this place, full of character and the staff were very helpful - be warned they don't speak much English but will always do their best to assist. The location is awesome and you're sure for an adventure in the Souk. This is the kind of hostel that is bursting with character and full of adventurous people. My friends and I did not find it remotely dangerous wandering around Medina Souk at all hours of the day (and night). A really cool hostel.
You get what you pay for. Beds were uncomfortable. Location is centric but at night there's nothing around.
The hostel owner Munir was very helpful. The only problem is that there is no adecuate heating, so it can get cold during the night. But this is a generell problem in Tunisian accomodation places, the Bad condition of the Toilett, too. I can strongly recommend the hostel, it seemed to be the only backpacker option in Medina, Tunis' most interesting part.
I don't understand the bad reviews about this place. I went there on January and I found it stunning. Probably the most beautiful hostel I ever been, with a huge typical arabic courtyard, impressive clean rooms, and decent dorms for the price. The management is helpful and considerate about your security. I went there twice and will go back if needed. Only drawback is the lack of night activities inside the medina, so go there for a good night of sleep.
The extra blankets were amazing since it was so cold in Tunisia. I got the impression the room needed to be mopped as there was dirt in the corners.
