    I was supposed to stay at this hostel for 3 days, then go back to Jerusalem. I ended up extending and staying for a week. There’s a lot to do In Eilat, and the staff/guests are very friendly. I completely recommend staying here!

    Charming place with no-frills dorm bunks and a very pleasant chillout area. The breakfast was excellent and there's free tea/coffee. Wifi worked in the common area mostly. Excellent showers. This is a Christian-run place and as such there are no mixed dorms, but its not too in your face so as atheists we weren't too bothered. It's a very short walk from the bus station and about 15 mins to the North Beach. Probably the cheapest place to stay in Eilat!

    Quiet clean place with friendly staff. No lock closet to lock your valuables in the room. You have to keep them in reception at the safe. Outdoor lounge is fun place to talk with other travellers.

    Staff was so friendly and helpful. Clean and affordable (for the area) accommodations. Curfew at midnight was kind of nice because it was quite in the evening. Kitchen to cook and outdoor place to chill. Would stay again!
