At Riad Verus hostel, you'll live like a local in an authentic – and beautifully decorated – riad. Chat to fellow travellers as you lounge on the cushioned seats in our courtyard under colourful lamps. It's a great place for a free cup of coffee, traditional Moroccan tea or a freshly squeezed orange juice. There's a free breakfast every morning too (think healthy and organic), served in our café-bar. And our restaurant's the venue for the family dinners we treat you to from time to time. For awesome views of the city, just wander up to our rooftop terrace and take it all in!

    I had an awesome stay at Riad Verus. The staff were great and Youssef went out of his way to help us find our way around the city and to organize buses. The hostel was beautiful and clean. There are pet turtles which is a plus. The breakfast is massive (you won’t need lunch). Great stay. Highly recommend.

    Best riad during my time in Morocco. Only stayed a night but will def come back. The decor is intricate and the atmosphere is real chill - Lots of colour and cushions PLUS a two level rooftop terrace to kick back in. The beds are comfy AF, even in the dorms. Staff are hilarious. Don't be a gronk and they'll bend over backwards to help you out. Ahmed, Yusuf and Mo should have their own comedy special on Netflix. Just keep in mind there is a curfue between 12:00am and 8:30am.

    Loved our stay. The hosts are lovely! Breakfast is huge and more varied than other hostel. Lots of people about. The roof top is amazing, sat up there for couple of hours just reading as the view is amazing! We paid for the bigger room with private toilet- which from what I can remember didn’t cost a lot more than the standard, it was definitely worth it! The little girl was so cute, having their family involved in the raid really makes it feel homely!

    Great spot - close to the Médina but not in the middle of it, such that it’s a pain to find - and a very social environment. Lots of travelers meeting in the lobby and on the roof deck

    Beautiful Riad/ good terrace, in the old medina, easy to access old city/ market. Rooms were ok,showers not the best. Breakfast=amazing.Old rooms, so a bit loud with doors opening/ closing/ stairways. A typical good backpackers hostel nevertheless. Always negotiate the prices before requesting any help.A very poor home shisha with no refill costs 150Dhi (market price30Dhm), 8 seatertaxi to airport on internet costs15 Eur even at4am.The hostswerefriendly but fleecing the guestswith service costs
