"Atmosphere in abundance was an understatement. Groovy tunes and killer staff made it a wicked stay. Special mention for them dealing with my lost passport and getting it back to me and helping at the police station."

About Riad Verus

AFFORDABLE lux accommodation and we want you to feel you’re staying in exquisite surroundings without feeling the pinch to your wallets. If you are looking for a fun place with plenty to do, this is your ideal COOL Hostel in Fes. Lastest Edition of Lonely Planet Recommended. SAFEST PART OF THE MEDINA. We are unique in Fes and have built our reputation being the only Discostel in Morocco where you can party in a safe environment and sleep in comfortable beds.

We organize henna painting, hammam trips, cooking classes, barber massage, tours of the Medina and help organize Desert Adventures with our team of specialists, daily yoga practice, free tea on arrival and shisha smoking.

Being in a prime location, means that, we are easily accessible for taxis, and only 5 minutes’ walk from the famous entry gate; Bab Beujeloud and the beautifully restored Place Batha.

A delicious breakfast of eggs, OJ, jams, baguettes, tea and coffee is served from 09.00 until 11.00 and is included in the price. 45 dhm Riad tourist tax payable per person per night on arrival for all guests in addition to the stated balance. 5% add on for credit card payments. N.B The card machine will only be used if either Noor or Leanora are present. The free night excludes the tax and breakfast. *For the buy 2 get one free deal on arrival in your accommodation category, you only have to pay for tax and breakfast the last night, (95 dhm each, the accommodation part is free)

Our clientele are often Americans, Canadians, Kiwis, Aussies & English travelers and couples between 22-35 years old. We have a nightclub open til LATE in the patio and do drumming sessions sometimes on the terrace, so WE ARE NOT SUITABLE AT ALL for people over 40 with children who want total peace as there are parties and Music is loud (PLEASE NOTE THIS). As the hostel is an open space Riad sound does carry so if you are a light sleeper bring earplugs as until early morning the Music may be loud. Muslims cannot share bedrooms with Non-Muslims out of wedlock, must provide Marriage Certificate and we do not accept Moroccan or Algerian nationals. We do not accept people from the outside. Guests only. 5 nights is maximum stay and we ask that if you are over 40 and still make a booking we will find for you alternative accommodation at our stated prices.

After a full on day exploring and losing yourself in the Medina your return to Riad Verus will feel like a home away from home.
