Funky Fes is the first hostel for young travelers in the Medina. With us you will experience the taste of an ancient culture. We are looking forward to greeting you in our authentic Riad, with warm smiles, exciting activities, excursions to the desert and loads of culture to discover even on a tight budget!

We are located in the old Medina, just a 5-minutes-walk from the most important monuments such as the Karaouine Mosque and the Tanneries. We are 5 minutes away from Bab Rcif, the most centrally located Medina gate and which allows the quickest access to central historical part and the souks.
To get to Funky Fes please view the video posted in our gallery. At the end of the video you will be guided through the Medina directly to the hostel.

Funky Fes will warmly welcome you into its dreamlike Fesi-Andalusian setting. We have beautiful, clean and spacious rooms as well as free breakfast. Our purpose is not only to provide you with a comfortable stay, but to give you the opportunity to discover the ancient local culture, its history and its people. Funky Fes will be your home away from home. We seek to bring people together and to contribute to global understanding, through the young generations.

If you are on the run from stress, Funky Fes is the right place for you. We have a big patio, three terraces and ensuite spacious rooms. The food we share here, is as warm and inviting as the people. Lose the fear of differences and discover common roots and traditions. In our patio you can relate and relax with people from all countries and continents around the world. With the view of the Medina from the top of our terraces you can let your imagination sweep you away to the enchanted tales of Arabian nights.
