The location is ideal for budget travelers, just minutes away from the Central Bus Station, a short walk from restaurants, bars, convenience stores, and a short bus ride away from many attractions. Taxis in Eilat are also very inexpensive. The hostel staff was fantastic and friendly. The laundry facilities were a lifesaver (NIS 15 for a huge load that air-dried in a snap).

Awesome place! The staff is super super friendly and helpful. They serve breakfast for an additional cost and you can also rent snorkeling gear for the day for cheap (I did this and would highly recommend it). Definitely a fantastic place to enjoy all Eilat has to offer for cheaper than you'll find elsewhere.


i needed only one night. But system didnt allow one so i took two nights. When i arriv ed them i ask for one nights refund. They couldnt but tehey gave me free breakfast free lockers and free snorkel rentals instead of refunding that one night which i wouldbt use.


I picked Arava because of its proximity to the train station, and because of the price. I was expected something crappy because the priority for me was cost, and I was willing to take lower quality. I was delighted to find that Arava offered incredible value for the price. It was not only extremely clean and well located, but the receptionists were incredibly helpful in giving tips for the best snorkeling, reasonably priced restaurants, etc. I would absolutely stay there again!
