A really brilliant hostel, the place has a fantastic atmosphere, the staff were all very friendly and informative and the story of the history of the hotel and free walking tour really make the place stick out as a memorable hostel. Would recommend to anyone to visit this Fauzi Azar.
Staff is amazing - when I was in a hurry to get to transport to Tel Aviv to make my flight, unsure of how to get the right taxi, bus, etc., Nadine actually walked me to the taxi stand and got the taxi driver to understand where I needed to go, even carrying my guitar for me. She and the other guy on staff (whose name I didn't get) wrote out explicit directions on which sherut to take and which stop to ask for - genuinely sympathetic toward my rushed situation. Exceptional.
This hostel is very unusual and cozy! When I was planning my Israel trip I canceled 1 night in Haifa just to spent 1 more night in this hostel. This is old Arabic mansion with fabulous atmosphere. Quite cheap and calm. Perfect lounge area with free WiFi, fruits and cakes. Breakfast is very tasty. Personal is friendly they helped me to make small trip to Tabor Mount.
This is an amazing hostel. The building is beautiful. There is a nice courtyard where you can relax and meet other travelers. The rooms are beautiful and the breakfast is huge!
Thank you for your hospitality. Offering ice cold water on arrival was nice and the cake too!
I liked Fauzi Azar a lot. Nice hostel. Rooms were clean, breakfast was excellent. Signs all over the neighborhood to direct me to the hostel was helpful.
Got 2 words for you: FREE CAKE. They bake cake all the time and offer it free to their guests, all day long. How excellent is that?! Besides that, this place is also great in all the other aspects too. Oh yeah, their breakfast was amazing. Hot foods, eggs and fantastic-tasting pizza (yes, works great for breakfast) and plenty of fresh fruit. In fact, it would probably be difficult to find a breakfast this good elsewhere around town and it's free too!
A wonderful hostel experience. The staff quietly, patiently and courteously do everything expected to make this place as homely and comforting as possible. The price may look steep to budget travellers, but the breakfast is good and generous, with subtle variations every morning, and with free tea & coffee and cake when ever it's wanted the cost is not as steep as it's looks on the surface. There are laundry facilities and a free tour every morning too which gives a general view of the town.
To be honest we have not been at Fauzi Azar Inn because our plans changed before the arrival. But it was no problem to cancel our dorm. Staff was really friendly.
Have I arrived at the reception sweating and the blonde girl there prepared for me water with ice to drink. Very good breakfast.
A place full of character, would recommend to any in search of good accommodation. Relaxing atmosphere too.
Takes a bit of trekking through the Old City to find (this is no bad thing) but definitely worth the effort to seek out. Large decent kitchen (acts as a social area), friendly staff, picturesque inside (up and down), close to the restaurant with the best hummus I found all trip (!), spacious dorms (not bunks) ... just go there! :)
In my opinion this is the best place to stay in israel! The building has a lot of character, but its the little Extra touches like a range of teas and free homemade cake, Oh and the breakfast- What a spread!!
excellent, nice staff making you feel almost like at home. Beautiful old house
I loved the kindness from the staff. They were very helpful. The sense of community was great. I don't have any complaints, but they could use some more heating for the winter season.
It was a very beautiful hostel, great location, a bit cold in the winter though.

loved the place! This hostel is special - greatest hostel in Israel that I have stayed in! BEAUTIFUL HOUSE!!!! Friendly staff with lots of recommendations for onward travel, maps, etc. A must: the free tour of Nazareth. The lady is not a professional and rushes through it (be careful not to linger anywhere or you'll lose your group!) - but it's a good tour nonetheless if your interest goes beyond visiting the usual churches which you can very well do on your own. Loved my stay there!
I really enjoyed my stay here. The hostel building is amazing and the 6 bed dorm I stayed in was really comfortable. The volunteer staff were lovely but the other staff seemed a bit bored/preoccupied. Didn't really affects stay tho, would highly recommed this place.
