2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
The location of this property is right in the heart of the action of the Medina. There are elements to the physical building and decorations that feel authentic. I arrived around 11 am, and I was checked in promptly. Several disappointing things from the check in: The person who checked me in didn’t speak any English, which isn’t a necessity, but also did not provide any other information to me in my native tongue, specifically accessing the building or offer assistance regarding an ongoing issue with iPhones connecting to the WiFi. My initial room looked GREAT-until I was trying to sleep and was awoken by incessant jack-hammering on the wall 2 feet from the bed. Tired from several days of travel, I asked to be moved to another room; it was MUCH smaller, and less welcoming asthetivall

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Well staffed with helpful and outgoing people who are willing to help problem solve with their visitors. The breakfast buffet is small but with adequate variety, instant coffee. I booked their 3 day/2 night tour upon arrival (not sure if in tourist season this is possible) and had a wonderful time seeing the South. My driver/ guide was pleasant. And the sites I was easily able to see had variety which provided a snap shot into many aspects of life. Enjoyed my stay very much

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
A beautiful place right in the old medina. Very nicely decorated with extremely helpful staff. All the rooms face out into the central courtyard, so it was a bit loud while people were talking, but once everyone went to bed it was absolutely silent. I really loved the nicely painted furnishings, they gave a lot of character and appeal to the room. The breakfast was nice for the region with a good selection.

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Quaint but nice
I would call the hostel quaint, if you are wanting the authentic experience then this may be for you. As it is winter it was cold outside, however the central heating in the room was on full blast (lucky us). There were stairs on the wall which led to an upstairs area/room, but it was empty, gathering dust. The main aspect of the stay that stuck out to me was the communal bathroom... I must have missed it when I booked it and got quite of a shock when I found out.
