    It was amazing. Nice people, nice room. Took a great cooking class. The ladies who worked the front desk were all amazing, wonderful people who went above and beyond the call of duty in ensuring that guests had stellar stays. I give them 11 out of 10.

    Brilliant place to stay in Nazareth, I have nothing to say but praises. Very friendly and helpful staff who speak fantastic English (not always the case), absolutely delicious breakfast, nice rooms and patio. When I stayed the hostel was barely occupied but my only worry would be the ratio of showers per beds if there were more guests. Highly recommended!

    Just outright awesome. Stayed in the big room and had the best group experience ever. Maybe a fluke, but still left a great impression. Cooking class, free local tour so you can find things. Beautiful house. Felt like I was really living locally.

    Wi-Fi absent on day 1. Intermittent on day 2. A stray cat was harassing guests in the kitchen. Climb on table when I ate. A nuisance and health hazard. I am surprised the staff tolerated this

    The hostel itself is beautiful. Could be cleaner - it’s also really cold if you’re staying in the winter time. My highlight of the hostel is, that the electricity for the whole floor was gone at 1 am. The reception was closed, so I had to call the number written there for emergencies. Instead of someone coming and fixing the electricity, I was guided through the whole floor to find not one, but three fuse boxes.
