This was a very clean, comfortable, friendly hostel with helpful staff. There is a common room and kitchen which are both well equipped and located far enough from the rooms that your sleep won't be disturbed by people to-ing and fro-ing during the night.

The hostel was good value for money, considering its location close to the centre and especially King's Cross. However, the rooms were dirty and cramped and there was only one working shower and toilet. The staff seemed very disorganised, they woke us up in the middle of the night because there had been a mix up with one of the beds.
The hostel was a little bit corporate for my liking, but great for young groups of people wanting to meet others. I stayed in the 26 bed dorm which I expected to be noisy and uncomfortable, but the beds were great and the room was divided into sections which meant you could actually have some privacy despite the number of people. It was great considering the low price. Staff were helpful and the location is good for getting to the centre.
One of the best hostels I've stayed in, mostly down to the relaxed atmosphere - the rooftop terrace is great, encourages people to hang out and meet each other and the staff is great at bringing people together too. In short, it's virtually impossible not to make friends here. The staff are all super helpful and ready to listen to any requests, the place is clean, there's a nice kitchen, Wifi, tea and coffee and simple breakfast. It's located right by Jaffa and ten minutes walk from the beach.
It is difficult for me to evaluate the place properly, as the guesthouse is brand new and I was practically the only person there throughout my stay. However, the owner Chantal was extremely kind and helpful, everything was very clean and the facilities are good. It's situated in a large kibbutz which is fairly easily accessible by bus from Be'er Sheva and Mitzpe Ramon, although the first time you travel there it can be a little challenging to know where to get off the bus.
