“Very nice hostel with magnificent rooms and a great rooftop terrace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

The (private) room no. 1 was really great, same as the rooftop terrace and the courtyard with all the decoration. We also booked a well-organized tour to ifrane. Breakfast is a lot and delicious. Additional drinks and food are a bit expensive though. All in all we had a great time and would recommend it

The staff is amazing, very kind and helpful! They have a nice structure and are located inside the medina. The hostel also has good recommendations of guides and attractions.
Rooms are comfortable, and very clean!

Riad Verus was our first stop on our Morocco holiday. Quite easy to find if you follow the signs in the street and in a safe neighbourhood. Was offered tea on arrival and our room was ready early which was much appreciated! Leanona ran the place like a well organised head-master and within a few minutes we had signed up to that evenings hammam visit, city tour the next morning and a camel trek to Marrakesh which saved us catching the overnight train as we were previously planning to do. Room was small but clean, bathroom didn't have much ventilation but we found that to be a common occurrence throughout Morocco. Tour with Muhammed was a blast - we did get taken to a couple of carpet shops, pharmacies etc but was all quite friendly and didn't pressure us to buy anything. Enjoyed a beer and an amazing sunset on the roof terrace with fellow travellers. There was music and lights in the lounge in the evening but they were all at a reasonable level and didn't bother us too much at all. Definitely recommend Riad Verus, especially if you want to socialise and don't mind a little bit of late-night noise.

Room Tip: Rooms higher up will have less noise.

Upon arriving to Fez, our taxi driver picked us up without any issues which was coordinated by Leanora. As we checked in she recommended we check out the local hammam - which ended up being one of the coolest experiences of my life. That night we ate a delicious dinner and drank wine on the hostel's terrace. The next day a group of us did the excursion out to the Sahara - rode camels into the desert and camped out for a night. I highly recommend doing this! Great way to see the country and you get to make several stops along the way. There's a ton of organized activities to take part in and Leanora was always very willing and flexible in helping us out. We did the cooking class - went to the market to buy the ingredients and came back to cook in the hostel. We also went on the tour with Muhammed, great guy who knows the city very well and speaks English. I can't imagine trying to navigate the city on our own...too easy to get lost. Be prepared to bargain and hold your ground if you plan on making any purchases! Beautiful place to stay with great decorations. I did see a dead cockroach but I guess it didn't bother me as much as some of the other reviewers. Take advantage of all there is to do at this hostel! They're great about always giving you a guide - I always felt safe! Stay here for sure.

My ONLY complaint is the funny smelling bathrooms but its totally manageable...I don't think I've stayed in a hostel that doesn't have a funny smelling bathroom. It is true that loud music and strobe lights are on until around midnight or 1 am, though they never seemed to bother me or my travel companions as we were usually downstairs enjoying a bottle of wine. But I do agree that the music could've been turned down/off at an earlier hour. I can certainly see how it would be frustrating for other guests! Regardless, this is a great beautiful place and Leanora was very helpful to us. This hostel really lets you take advantage of all Morocco has to offer!

Stayed there for 3 nights, two in a single room and 1 in the dorm. The single room is fine, small with a private bathroom, and the noise is not a problem. The only issue is that it is not very clean, the floor was full of sand. The dorm is a trap. It is good, but the hotel website does not leave clear that it is aside the lounge, and during my stay, they had a disco all nights in the lounge, which means a lot of noise. Again, this is not written in the hotel website, so take care. Other than this, its location is very good.

This was a lovely place with a great atmosphere. The staff was friendly and suuuuper informative! The breakfast alone definitely made it worth the stay. The mint tea when you get there sets a good mood. I recommend the walking tour, especially if you're with a group.
