Fes is a city where the locals love to haggle and hustle, be warned that if this is your first time to Morocco the experience can be quite overwhelming in the beginning. Just go with the flow and embrace the atmosphere!

By law, Moroccans, Tunisians and Algerians who are not married CANNOT share a room with the opposite sex (so this includes all our dorm rooms) unless they are married and have proof of an original marriage certificate. If you are one of these nationalities you must present a passport from another country to be allowed to stay, but we reserve the right of admission and you may be asked to leave so as not to be in trouble with the law.
