I mistakenly thought the term 'Youth' in 'Eilat Youth Hostel' was a generic one that applied to travelers in their 20s (like the author of this comment). On the contrary, 'Youth,' as used in the name of the hostel, refers to groups of swarming 13-14 year-old Israelis and Brits, the better part of which seemed engaged in a night-long orgy of a water-gun fight, fueled by energy drinks, sugar, and newly-discovered desires. If you have already passed through puberty, consider another hostel.

The hostel was very clean and in a convenient location. It had a great breakfast, which was included. The pricing was fair, and was worth the money spent. Overall, we enjoyed our time here. However, the reception desk was, at times, unwelcoming. They seemed to be bothered by our asking questions. They were very unknowledgeable about local activities, and some of the employees refused to make phone calls to inquire about local activity prices, etc.

What is the rationale? to save on the cost of some additional keys ? Security? how ? I have been in the last 4 years in over 40 hostels and have not encountered such inconvenience. I do not wish to open the door for another guest and viersa
