My friend and I enjoyed our stay at Dar Hafsa. Kharim, the owner, his daughter Miriam and his employee Mohammed were all wonderful and friendly hosts. They were very responsive to our initial email inquiries as well as during our stay. The room we had was on the top floor and had beautiful colorful rugs and tapestries. The dar (or house) itself is also beautiful with all the mosaics and high ceiling. The rooftop was also a perfect place to have a view of the medina below, which we found to be especially magical around sunset and during the call for evening prayers. The daily breakfasts were carb centric - Kharim's wife made 7 types of breads each day - but were very tasty. The wifi worked very well downstairs although was a bit spotty in our top floor room and the rooftop. Overall, Dar Hafsa was a great and affordable place to stay.
