"Really good location and kind generous staff, the tequila night was great. Sufi festival was going on in Fes and the hostel was a mere five minute walk from the venue, so made it a plus."

Disliked: Breakfast was served in the patio, may have been nicer on the roof but it was too chilly.

Liked: The Discotel rocked, will be back in the summer for sure where it will no doubt be THE hostel to be staying in in Fes. So much to keep you busy, hammam every night, sheisha, yoga in the mornings, donkey riding...you name it they have it on speeddial.

Disliked: Nothing to dislike about the property but Fes is one freaky town.

Liked: Excellent place to stay if you are looking for great digs at knock down prices. The bathroom was modern and fairly new, hot water in abundance, wifi was pretty strong and we had a tv in our large room. The location was easy enough to find but then again the taxi knew where he was going. The aircon was superb, its hot in Fes in Spring. From what we read there were some negativity about the music in the evenings, I think anyone who has read the description in HB or the Lonely Planet write up about this Riad should know that there is live music at night and to bring earplugs if you are noise sensitive. The place has rhythm and that was why we choose it because you will feel very awkward as a foreigner walking into a bar and chatting up a girl who is legit , unless its a 5 star hotel with beers at 5 star prices - the bar at the Verus makes a fun set up and drinks are half the price.

Disliked: Rooms vary in size, we had the top room 7 which was really spacious and quieter, i can imagine being in room 2 on the ground floor could be noisy.

Liked: I was kind of nervous about traveling to Fes and finding a good hotel or hostel to stay in, but the second I arrived at Riad Verus I felt so much better. The property was clean, awesome, and one of the best hostels I've stayed in. It was so social and we met so many friendly people staying at the hostel. I was happy that they had a club attached to the hostel, as it's not very safe to go out in Fes at night. This offered us the opportunity to have fun right next door in the hostel at our convenience and for our safety. The staff were extremely helpful. They made sure we got to see everything we wanted to in Fes, taking us on tours. They were very accommodating and made sure our stay was really easy. For a weekend I had been stressing about as I was nervous traveling to Morocco, the weekend was very smooth thanks to the staff at the hostel!

Disliked: Katie left no negative feedback.

Liked: The hostel is located in a beautiful riad in a decent location.

Disliked: The atmosphere is ruined by the music being too loud and the alcohol too expensive. If it was more chilled out and the staff was less socially awkward, this place would be amazing.

Liked: Fes is a very stressful city so it was nice to find this place where you can just kick back and enjoy travellers life listening to some recent tunes mixed by Noor or just staring at the beauty of the house. The concept behind the hostel is easy living, carpe diem and have a good time. The place is popular and there is always something to do, be it go on the bar crawl, smoke a pipe, knock back B52s with the staff or do a yoga class with the owner. The food isnt bad either, but there are plenty of cafes close if you want to venture out behind the doors.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Cool find with funky rooms and fun showers, brightly painted pipe work and hot water all the time. Dorm rooms were cheaply priced. Good places to relax during the day and in the evening we hung out in the bar downstairs complete with disco lights. One day we took the tour organised by the Riad - nice way to see Fes city

Disliked: Nada.

Disliked: The water pipes were being fixed when we got there, so had to wait for a while to shower, but for the rest of the stay we had very hot showers.

Liked: Miami meets Morocco here at this Riad, the play has alot of energy. Fes in general was expensive to drink in, so good to have found a bar in the Riad where the price of a beer wasn't too extortionate. Best B52 shots to be found 2. Tours leaving every day down to the Merzouga, again reasonably priced with the option to go onto Marrakesh. Never a dull moment at this hostel. Every day is a ho-li-day.

Disliked: You have to be staying here to be able to use the bar. My friends who were staying at another hostel weren't allowed in.

Liked: Fantastic service, constant supply of beers, sheishas, help in organising desert trips, henna, yoga, snack bar and they serve fresh orange juice at breakfast. The crowd is in its 20s 30s. Very social set up and its a complete package. Once you are there you feel all your needs are met. The views are stunning from the terrace.

Liked: I had a nice time here, everyone was nice and friendly and made staying here cool.All in all a wonderful stay. The great Disco made for a great communal setting and an opportunity to meet other people.

Disliked: The music closed down around midnight so if you want to keep partying you have to go out to a club in the New Town and Fes was expensive when it comes to alcohol.

Liked: Clean, secure, great decor, good location and comfortable beds.

Disliked: The hostel advertises that it has a dj/nightclub, but it doesn't mention that nearly every room is adjacent to this nightclub, so from 7 - 12 every night you can't nap, cant even speak comfortably in the common room or your own bedroom. Multiple guests asked that they turn the music down, as there was nobody dancing or even enjoying the show, but the dj refused to even play a little quieter. Absolutely unacceptable. The food and drinks are ridiculously expensive for morocco. I was charged 2 euros for a bottle of water. o bought three kebabs for 2 euros earlier in the city. Nobody is at reception between midnight and 9.30. City tax of 4.50 euros per person per night was stated on hostel booker but this is not a standard fee, other hostels change much less.

Liked: Well organised, clean and modern but still there are many Moroccan features and stunning architecture. Clean modern bathroom, towels in the room and the maid comes in every day. Loved the party atmosphere, can only imagine how much fun it would be in the Summer months. Room light and airy, not much sound proofing but its totally charming and with plenty of character. Unique set up.

Disliked: The hostel had everything I could have hoped for. It's not five stars but it's as close as you will get for a hostel when you pay next to 20 euros a room.

All the staff are really friendly, happy to help and seemed to know where to do, what to do, where to hang, which nights had what going on, even where to catch the local team playing soccer.

Disliked: What was to dislike?? Er..nothing.
