nice people, hotel easy to find. Regarding dormitories : be aware that they are mixed, en-ven if you booked a women only dorm.. they rent very good bikes at a fair price.

Good location within Tiberias - close to restaurants, the Sea of Galilee and the bus station. Feels more like a hotel than a hostel as there is no common room area for people to socialize. Not too expensive although breakfast is not included (and costs a huge 40 NIS) and bike rentals from the hostel are very expensive so overall not great value for money. Rooms were clean and air conditioned and bed was comfy!


The place has the potential to be a great hostel and was very comfortable and clean. It is located in what appears to be part of an older hotel and if a bit of maintenance was kept up with it could be excellent. There was a broken closet door in my room and insufficient electrical outlets for multiple people. If they were to fix things up just a bit and include a clean towel and breakfast, It could be excellent. It is just a two minute to the Sea of Galilee and five to shops and restaurants


A única coisa que vale à pena no Aviv é o preço e a localização. Funcionários muito rúdes. Eu não recomendo se você tiver outra opção para ficar em Tiberias.


Overall a very decent place. There's only one key for the dorm rooms and I had mixed reactions from the staff, some were very helpful while others were much less so. You can rent a bike from this hostel for the whole day with helmet, lock, and roadside assistance which was awesome. There was only one working air conditioner in a 5 bedroom room and I had the unfortunate luck to have roommates that didn't want to turn it on at night so it was very hot. Overall nothing really fancy but not bad


A good place to be ; close to the center and not expensive.


More a low-cost hotel than a hostel, the only good point of this place is its position, very close to the lake and its nice promenade. A 5-10min walk from center and bus station. I slept in the 6-bed dorm, room was a bit small with a reasonably spacious toilet. Staff is average, not rude but quite cold and stressed. Place lacks atmosphere, nothing to do with hostels, no common room or relax area. If you stay 1-2 nights is ok, for longer periods I suggest to look around for other options.
