    Staff is very helpful, they will give you tips about the city , buses and places to go, they will also chill with you taking some beers and talk about life. Beds are just ok, structure is kinda old, but normal. Location is great, it's walking distance to the old city and if you like to walk you can also go to the bus station from there, otherwise just take the streetcar. I'd recommend put some covers on the beds for privacy.

    Very Good

    Great location. We had the indoor camping room although a lovely idea I think curtains would be better to give more space. Still a fairly new hostel. Very busy at times with locals flooding the bar and visiting the club. Not a huge amount of comfy places to relax in. Free pancake breakfast was awesome. Check in and out on the machine was fairly simple but no mention of a security deposit (NIS 100) at the time of booking and not clear at the end of the stay that it was being returned.

    Sleeping was no problem, despite interesting parties going on till the morning. Nice dorms, several short-term couples from the parties around... :D but - no lockers, bathrooms could be cleaner... and it looks more improvised than it should after half a year or more. We felt a little "in the wa" most of the time with very few options so sit and hang around there. Wasn't to bad, but we'll chose another place next time and mybe just go there to party at night.

    Chose to stay here for the location, but wouldn't go back. During my three night stay they couldn't even replace one light bulb. The light was out in one of the 4 bathrooms, which were almost always in use, so a few times I had to resort to using the dark one with my phone as a flashlight. The floor in the mixed dorm I stayed in really needed to be vacuumed, and the blanket and pillow I was provided smelled like someone else's body odor. The one party night was fun but not worth the grime imho.

    This hostel is terrible. I was given a dirty mattress to sleep on, with a thin disgusting blanket to use. The room is very crowded and dirty. Staff are more interested in partying and chatting than helping you.

    It was not clearly written the age requirement.The staff was mocking and aggressive that I was of course supposed o know of this.It in fact took the hostel rep 5 minutes himself to find the short line of age requirements. Then it was you lost your hostel commission money go figure it out with them.Ok I think we can help with the commission. This is another new hassle when I get home to make sure I was not charged. There are hostels empty on every block good luck finding this one.

    I’ve been to many hostels in many countries. I can assure you that this is one of the worst hostels I’ve been to. I usually love party hostels because besides the whole “party” aspect, you can expect real professionalism. At poundak, the mattresses are on the floor. There’s absolutely no space to put your bags, let alone no way of securing them inside a locker or something. Everything was dirty! It was an awful stay. The showers were ok, but there were 3 of them, not separated from toilets.
