    Loved Arava! Very clean and nice facilities, good breakfast, and lovely garden to eat or hangout in. The staff was very nice and helpful, and let me store my bags for free while I took an overnight tour since I was staying there anyway. Would definitely stay here again.

    This is a very good hostel, with a beautiful garden and an exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. It is centrally located, near both to the beach and night-life district, the university and to shopping areas. It is very clean and safe and well-maintained. There is a good breakfast in the mornings. I recommend this hostel, highly.

    The staff is super amazing about answering any and all questions you may have, and I especially had a great experience with Shani. The only thing I didn’t like was the size of the kitchen and lack of kitchen ware. I had asked to use the other kitchen, but one of the other staff said it was a “kosher” kitchen even though it was advertised everywhere in the hostel that their was an additional kitchen to use.

    Nice place in a good location! I met many nice travelers. Ruth who worked there was wonderful, she helped us booking tours and answering questions! Not the best hostel for solo travelers but luckily I met some nice people in my room!

    Small rooms, but nice breakfast. The kitchen is too close to the rooms.

    It is a great hostel, located only 5 minutes away from the Central Bus Station, which makes it perfect no matter what time you're arriving or need to leave. They offer free breakfast and they have a garden, so you can also eat outside enjoying the sun. I loved it, it was so peaceful. The staff is amazing and they're willing to help you with any questions you might have about any activities you're willing to do (especially Ruth). I found it on a very good price and I'm very happy I stayed there!

    The dorms look a bit Spartan but the beds are comfortable and the personal light and electrical plug are handy. The included breakfast is good and there is a nice outdoor area. All in all, this is quite a nice place.

    This has been the worst hostel of my trip around Israel. While the terrace and garden are really nice, the facilities in the house are pretty dated and in need of a major modernisation. The dorms in particular are clearly below hostel standards, in fact, they feel more like lumber-rooms with no proper windows and no daylight, but 6 old beds cramped in with hardly space to leave luggage. Also no proper showers, but a shower hose and head mounted to a sink in a tiny cabin. Breakfast is nice though
