    The place was great. We arrived late to the place but Silke made sure we had all the info we needed to make it there and get settled. The place was very clean too. It is so close to all the sites and the city center. Though short, we really enjoyed our stay at Simsim's.

    Located in the heart of the old city of Nazareth, right on so called Jesus trail. All main spots can be reached in very short time. Facilitties are clean, kitchen practically equipped, only the toilets are a bit unpractically situated in the open space. Staff is very kind and supportive. Once one shower was clogged, we reported it and it was fixed straight away. If you are planning to go to Jordan, they are selling tickets for a bus to Amman (only tuesdays and thursdays).

    Very Good

    I chose this hostel, because no other hostel had a bed for me. Simsim could take me in, so I was happy about that. The bed was okay, but the door couldn't lock and I didn't really have a place to store my stuff safely. But overall the staff is nice and the atmosphere among the guests was great!

    Very Good

    Pros: has a kitchen and is in the very pretty old part of the city! Cons: Have to make own bed (and there’s no Cover for the top blanket, feels like they are just used over and over again). VERY noisy from street if in the front dorm. Security to get into the building was very good, however, there are no lockers for valuables/luggage once inside. Overall, for one night it was fine.

    This hostel was a pretty low-quality one. No air conditioning, small facilities, and a very odd layout. Staff was friendly, but constantly around (he was sleeping in the room next door); I felt watched all the time. You're not allowed to leave the light on in a room you leave (even just for a minute), and he would follow me around, turning off lights. People were snoring in my room, so I asked to move to the room next door which was empty, but was denied. Experience was ok, but not great.

    Unfortunately we were attacked by bed bugs at night which made our stay very unpleasant. Since no staff was around and we were told to drop off the keys at the owners' café next door all we could do was leave a note with the person working there and didn't get a refund, not even an apology from the staff. Otherwise the rooms were ok and the location quite nice. But with no staff around and a collection of German anti-Israel BDS literature on the bookshelves the vibe was rather strange.

    I had such a mind blowing time trying to drive through Nazareth that I finally left and stayed in Tiberias. I could not find a place to park. There was a large crowd of quite angry Palestinians in a park. I didn't not want my rent a car damaged so I left. I called Simsim and they basically said - too bad for you. You did not cancel within 72 hours so we are charging you anyway. I think they never heard of "Goodwill" being a valuable asset on a Balance Sheet. Now I will never stay at Sim Sim.
