    The shelter is a hostel with a Chirstian ethic but don't worry you can stay there and be secular. It just feels good to hang out there.

    Our stay was awesome. We liked the atmosphere in the hostel, basicaly everything. Especially we liked the tables and benches outside where we could eat. Unfortunately, the girls found their beds not in the best conditions. The bed sheets on the beds (not the sheets they got when we checked in) were a little bit smelly.

    I stayed one night only but I liked the place: nice, warm and cozy with lots of activities. The staff were also kind and helpful. The only downside: no lockers.

    A nice Hostel in center of Eilat with nice Garden. The rooms are quite small. After 12 PM they close the Gate so you can't come in anymore. The Hostel is specialized on Bible courses; so that’s why. But the rooms are definitely to small.

    It's totally worthy staying here! It's kinda religious and you have to be open minded ofc. The close the gates for the night so if you wanna go clubbing don't drink to much bcs you have to climb over the gate ;) The staff is very nice and helpful! I really enjoyed my stay

    I've had a more comfortable bed in a jail cell. Staff is incredibly friendly and property has a nice feel to it but rooms are small and beds are short and thin matteresses.

    I think it is very important to realize that this is a Christian hostel. I am not sure why they don't advertise it as such. The staff were nice and didn't try to push religion onto me other than giving me a Bible. However, some of the guests were very intense with their religious beliefs and made me feel quite uncomfortable given the fact that I am not religious. Because of this, even though it is in a nice location and with decent enough facilities, I would not stay there again.
