I loved the hostel. Its so special. The most beautiful doorm I ever slept in.
A fantastic place to stay, one of the best I have ever been, even in world wide comparison!
The premise is just gorgeous, a friend of mine just thought my photo of this hostel is simply a drawing. And the free breakfast of this hostel is also wonderful, including pizza, pita with hummus, milk and coffee. Yet, the location is a little bit hard to find, and would be a bit quiet at dark night,.
Fauzi Azar Inn is a wonderful place with no shortcomings. I would go back there with no hesitation. A short story. I arrived in Nazareth vi bus from Haifa and left my camera on the seat of the bus while exiting. I almost panicked but went straight to Fauzi Azar Inn and the girl working the desk found my camera within an hour. The bus driver had turned the camera in at the bus station and I retrieved it easily.
The Inn was very pretty and incredibly tranquil, in keeping with the rest of the old town of Nazareth. The dorm room and bathroom were both fine. Breakfast was very good indeed, and the free cake and fruit were a real bonus! We were also able to organise a good day trip to Golan Heights in the north of Israel.
When I arrived by bus from Tel Aviv not so easy to find, but when you get to the bewildering alleys of the souk (market) there are hostel signs to show you the way. Great building, Looks like a arabic palace and I slept in a room with painted ceiling that is about 7 meters high. Lovely kitchen with free tea and cake. Receptionists changed a lot and so it depended a bit on who was working in order to get Information about places to go. Unique hostel and a place to calm down from busy Nazareth.
Every staff person is friendly and helpful. We stayed on the new side. It was very clean, very large, and had a nice patio to sit out at. The included breakfast had to be the best free breakfast buffet I've ever had anywhere! And I travel a lot. This is a great place to stay.

The hostel is very unique and beautiful, in an old beautiful house, with a good coffee service and a breakfast above average. I just thought It was a little expensive (no lockers included, no private lamp, you have to pay tu use the computer), specially compared to other hostels in Israel, but still it's a very cozy and nice place. Anyway, you should know it's not a party hostel at all.
Good hostel! The only problem is that it's a pain to find. Totally would recommend this place. Oh and the breakfast is really good.

The place was so unique and Linda the tour guide so nice that it far overshadowed any thing else. old and wonderful.
Wonderful, fun place to stay!! I'd definitely recommend to any friend or family member. The only thing is that the staff are not as knowledgeable about the Jesus Trail, directions, or local tourist information that you'd expect. Three different people gave me wrong information on separate occasions that led me to being lost or getting on the wrong transportation. But in regards to taking care of the facilities and being nice people, the staff is great!
They stay at Fauzi was really Good. We liked the atmosphere in the Old city of Nazareth. In the evenings we had our own roof terrace. We Booker private Double bed room with Shared bathroom in the New Rooms of Fauzi. Very convienend! We can really recommend. Free Wifi, coffee and tea for Free the Wohle Day as well as cake. Volunteers were very nice and helpful. Breakfast included in the rates.

A unique and beautiful place in the old city of Nazareth. Nice clean rooms, good breakfast and useful kitchen, very friendly staff and a great tour through Nazareth. I only would like lookers for my belongings...
Have been staying in hostels all over Israel for 5 weeks and this hostel ticks all the boxes and wished we could have stayed longer. The free daily tour which gives you the history behind this hostel is brillent. Free breakfast is also good. Cheers from the over 50 year old backpackers from Australia.
One of the most amazing places I have slept in. I definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Israel. The mansion has unique atmosphere. The location is superb. The staff are very helpful and the breakfasts are mouthwatering. THANKS to the AZAR FAMILY and LINDA the guide who took us on an unforgettable tour round Nazareth.
Really really loved it! The free cake and fruit helped. The outside entrance doesn't let on how nice a place it is. Definitely recommend.
Historical place in the old city of Nazareth. Staff is really friendly and water/cake is available all day. Good place to stay for about two nights and for solo travelling.
Last year I only stayed one night, and this year I stayed for two. Everything was essentially the same (100% in my books) with a few small improvements here and there. The most beautiful hostel in Israel! They have a great blend of the classic Ottoman architecture, with modern washroom facilities and bedding. To be honest, the kitchen is kind of small to be cooking in, but you almost don't want to with world-class Arab cuisine 5 min walk away at affordable prices.
