“Nice hostel and Nice People”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

It's really convenient. Really near the blue gate and safe at night. The people here are really nice and helpful! Worth staying! The balcony is fantastic! The rooms have air conditioner so it is really nice to stay in Summer !

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for three night and we had a greet time. The staff was very friendly and were happy to help us with every question we had.
The terrace was a nice place to meet people, smoke shisha and have some traditional tea.
Was a very good choice in Fez.

I stayed here with three friends for a couple of nights and everything was excellent - particularly the staff, who were very friendly, couldn't do enough for us and provided enormous volumes of tea. The hostel is in a good location - in the medina but down a quiet street which is also easily reached from the road. The room we stayed in was clean and spacious and the hostel also has a great roof terrace. Breakfast is included as well and there is plenty of it! although they only serve it at 9am. Overall it was very good value for money and I would definitely stay there again.

Thank you Georgia for your kind comments - we enjoyed having you all stay with us! All staff at Dar Rabha are only too happy to help where we can to make guests' stays in Fez as comfortable, relaxed and fun as possible.
The ancient medina offers so much aesthetically and culturally, and we are passionate about our guests experiencing this multi-faceted, labyrinthine city in all its glory! Regarding breakfast, we trialled it at an earlier hour, however 9am was the time most agreeable with the majority of guests. Thank you again, and we hope to welcome you back to Dar Rabha soon, inshallah. - Natasha

We stayed here for 4 nights in total. At first there was a slight mixup with the room, however this was dealt with in minutes and we ended up getting a better room for the same price. The staff are excellent as is the owner Aziz who helped us with everything we needed, including taxis, restaurant tips etc. Also, all the guests that were staying in the house were very nice, the place seemed to attract 'good vibes'. The terrace on the rooftop was our favourite place to chill out in Dar Rabha, where all the guests seemed to congregate and chat. Overall we really enjoyed our stay here and would stay here again if i returned to Fez.

My friend and I were just in Fez for the Sacred Music Festival and stayed at Dar Rabha. The place is hidden gem, particularly if you speak French or Arabic as the people who run it are very nice and happy that we had some Arabic. They do have a couple people who can speak English as well, so don't let that stop you from staying here. It was very reasonable price-wise, especially for the value. It has hostel-type rooms and private rooms, and it was very clean!

They have 24 hour check-in which was great for our late arrival. We were in a room right off the main sitting area which I thought might be a problem, but it wasn't for us since we were out late for the Festival and were getting up right when people started coming down for breakfast, which doesn't start until 8:45am.

The only complaint I have about our room was that when we took a shower, there was not enough ventilation in the bathroom and therefore our room was damp throughout our stay. We didn't really like the comforter either, or that the pillowcases were the same material. They were not comfortable on the skin to sleep on at all, especially compounded with the dampness.

Other than that, it was a perfect spot hidden away from the main busy streets and a great stay. The breakfast was great, don't be afraid of communal eating with your fellow travelers! You meet some great people on the road!

Room Tip: If you want a double room, ask for one away from the main communal area.

Thank you for your comprehensive review - we were delighted to have you stay with us at Dar Rabha. Thank you for your comments regarding our staff, the breakfast and the cleanliness of our hostel. Regarding the bathroom, as Dar Rabha is a 400 year old riad, when it was built there were no bathrooms; Moroccans traditionally bathed in Hammams. Combined with restrictions due to Fez's UNESCO World Heritage classification, the 'creation' of bathrooms is not altogether straight-forward. However, the bathrooms are cleaned by our wonderful staff daily to the highest standards. Thank you again for your kind comments, and we look forward to welcoming you back, inshallah! -Natasha
