For being low budget category, but being centrally located right at the beginning of the Medina of Fes (Bab Boujelou), I would say this hostel is "okay", because the people working there are really friendly and you step out of your hostel and right into the cultural world heritage of the biggest preserved Medina of Morocco. Also the terrace and its views are amazing, the food of the restaurant is good and the prices are moderate, especially compared to the restaurants nearby.
On the other hand, it could definitely be cleaner, especially in the shared bathrooms (one toilet out of two was blocked for days which is not funny, even in lower season). Also the mattresses could be newer and a general renovation would be good for all the rooms.
