“Friendly Funky Fez”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

I stayed at Funky Fez for one night in a 6-beds-mixed dorm which was fine. The room was spacious enough, clean and with large ensuite bathroom. 3 metal bunkbeds, unfortunately I seemed to have chosen the one that was loudest and moving a lot while getting up or turning. Also, my sheets were not entirely clean.
Breakfast was a little bit scarce still tasty though: everyone receives one plate with 4 bites of cake, one piece of bread baked with egg and a slice of an orange. At the buffet you can take as much coffee/tea, bread with butter/jam as you like. I didn't eat another meal at the hostel but from what I saw portions were quite large and at least looked very tasty.
From the roof terrace you have a lovely view over the city and the mountains surrounding it. Location of the hostel is convenient and quite easy to find. I'd come back for my next stay.

The staff were really welcoming and helpful, we booked our trip to the Sahara through them which meant that someone had to be up at 4am to let us out. Really freindly enviroment and the staff were always very helpful.

There was a mix up with the rooms that wasn't great but apart from that everything was great.

Arrived in the evening around 7ish with my bicycle and another cyclist. The staff were very friendly, with a great sense of humour, welcoming us in, accommodating both us and the bicycles without a booking.
Always willing and there to help, the staff are excellent. The hostel is an old riad just on the edge of the old medina, 5 mins walk. It has a roof terrace where you can eat and has main area where you can relax, have breakfast, next to that is a communal chill-out lounge with comfortable seating all round.
Very nice indeed!

if you want to stay in Fes and you have some difficult with the portfolio, Funky Fes is the best choice. Really clean and large, a lot of travellers choose this riad for the good position. The staff is competent and available and rooms are good. But i notice that everythings is more expensive inside the hostel ( water 80 dirham meanwhile outside is 60) and they use to organize for you all the stay. Strange thing: if you talk to the locals, Funky Fes have a bad reputation. Finally i can say that i stay very good and as my point of view, they have to recover a bit of Maroccan traditions.

Room Tip: The rooms in Funky Fes are the cheapest in whole city!

It was my second time staying in the hostel this year: It was always nice and clean; the people are great and the kitchen upstairs is nice for some group cooking and meeting people. The staff is super friendly and you can be sure that Abdou; Yahyah and Mohamed will take good care of you. Also you should try the nice food in the evenings cooked by the nice kitchen staff.
Had a great time and will come again :)!

It's a very nice hostel and the service is quite good! They gave us complementary tea when we arrived. The food they serve is fantastic and they even have a Tv for the guest to watch movies in.The staff was very friendly and worked with us when there was a problem with our reservations. They even walked with us to the taxi when we were leaving (we were 3 girls and were leaving at the middle of the night). Only negative thing I have to say it was quite a complicated for us to get there.
