i arrived to this hostel on daylight and without reservation. The hostel is perfectly decent, rooms have 4 beds, perhaps the bathroom was not that clean and you have to clean it yourself with a tissue (if you understand me....) showers have hot water, but there are time showers restrictions. I however woke up my 2 days early and took... More

A perfectly decent hostel for a great price. The place has gorgeous tiles and high ceilings and is located right in the beautiful medina. The rooms aren't perfectly clean but it's quite manageable. The beds look as good as new after you've dusted them off. The bathrooms are old but clean and work fine. Toilet paper is provided (cf some... More

When it was open and during the day it must've been nice. Maybe. The decor inside look(ed) great. Now it's dirty and rundown. But it still hauls the old glory and i'ts cheap. Plus it's in the middle of the medina and it's walking distance from top end restaurants in town.

The youth hostel is in the heart of the Medina of Tunis. It is the only YH in Tunis. As per political situation it has seen very few tourist for the past few year, so there is quasi-no maitenance budget. Yes the place is rundown as you can read on other reviews, but still is the only place to meet... More

The location (in the heart of the Medina) and price are brilliant. However I was a little let down by the accommodation itself. The private room for two was very much not private. We could clearly hear people in the social area and adjacent rooms which made getting to sleep hard and the beds were not comfortable or cleaned. I... More

If you want to be close to the old medina and immerse in its atmosphere, this is one of the best option. The interior is very nice with great Tunisian architecture built into its courtyard and rooms, it really makes you feel that you're in some place different, and the price is very cheap and reasonable. But there are many... More

This beautiful old building, with it's furnishings and old styled mosiacs and decor gives one a good feel of what it would be like to be living in olden day Tunisia. I agree with the other reviewers though, it is in need of better house keeping and maintainence. Rooms are small and partitioned with a thin wooden wall and we... More

The hostel itself is completely charming: a gorgeous old building, large main room with skylights, gorgeously tiled walls, and the private rooms connected on the side with the shared rooms on the 2nd floor. With better management this hostel could see better days. Someone in the office generally knows Arabic or French. Sometimes a staff member will speak English. Though... More

If you are going to Tunis in the summer, this is NOT the place to stay. It is EXTREMELYYY hot in the country, then you come to this hostel and there is no air circulation, no fan in the rooms, and the ac unit exists only in the common area ONLY during a few hours in the evening.
