  • The hostel was great, everyone was so welcoming and showed us where was good to visit in the city. We met some great people and will always remember this place. The hostel was within walking distance of the medina but not too noisy. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit Fez.

  • Riad Verus is the best riad I've ever seen. I entered the door after 8 hours in a car, and I was very warm welcomed by Melanie and Noir. Wonderful breakfast, assistance during all my stay, amazing hospitality and extra blanket when I really need it, million smyles and feeling like I'm at home. I strictly recommend Riad Verus to the all travelers. For me and my friends it's one and only place to stay in Fez! Mel and Noir, one more time thank you! And of course hugs to Bruno )))

  • The Staff is incredible. They are very nice and kind. Very helpful in helping me organize my day trip to Volubilis. The Riad should be turned into a 4 Seasons, it is hip and cool. My stay there was comfortable and added to the experience of meeting Moroccans and interacting with them on a daily basis. The Mint Tea and hospitality are the best! Cheers

  • The atmosphere and the people running the hostel are very friendly. The interior design do have a very local flavor which gives it a unique look, only minor setback is that it can get a bit chilly in the wintertime and the shower is a bit smaill.

    so happy you loved the vibe in the Riad Verus and the beauty too of the decor, we do have heaters which work but yes if you are in a shared bathroom which is our most economic stay its not as plush as the ensuite rooms which we have ensuite dorms too available.

  • After a long night we got to Riad Verus and craved a cozy bed and some heavy blankets. We were warmly welcomed by Youssef and Mel who made us feel right at home, and seemed to genuinely care about our stay. Mel had her own international trip the next day but went out of her way to help us to cancel the previous desert trip we had (that we were not too enthused about) and set us up with her company! It was so easy to work with them directly, and they handled every detail, from planning, to packin

  • Mel, Nor and the whole staff is awesome. She was really patient answering all my questions I had throughout my stay and was extremely accommodating when I had to make any changes to my reservation. Nor is great too. Oh and the place is beautiful. U will enjoy the ambiance. The terrace is great to sit and have conversations with fellow travelers or just chill with breathtaking views of Fez. Stay here during your travels, you will not regret it

  • This was our favorite hostel in Morocco. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The building was gorgeous and our private double ensuite room was more than we could have asked for. The (very effective) A/C was included as was lots of refreshing mint tea. The free breakfast was fresh and delicious. The view from the terrace was one of the best in the city. We would go back in a heartbeat.

    We are so happy this was your favourite hostel in the whole of Morocco and that you found our staff to be so friendly and helpful and that you found the bedroom ensuite to surpass your expectations, also the powerful AC units and the delicious mint teas aswell as our infamous breakfast which have gathered quite alot of selfies on #riadverusfes and of course the cherry on the cake...our terrace views, we look forward to your return!
