    I honestly have never stayed at a better hostel than The Shelter. Everyone is so friendly, the place is beautiful and wonderful to hang out at during the hottest part of the day, the bathrooms and rooms are spotlessly clean, and there's always someone to chat with! Yes it's a Christian hostel, but for someone like me who is not a Christian, all that really means is there is music in the mornings and everyone is always smiling and pleasant to be around. I can't recommend this place enough!

    The shelter hostel a very nice clean and inexpensive way to see Eilat. I felt very safe, its walking distance to every thing, close to the bus station. I normally would never stay at a hostel. But the shelter was very nice. God bless you all in Jesus name. Elazar

    Our experience in the shelter was truly great. The staff was extremely helpful, kind and hospitable. The atmosphere and the community of the Shelter could not be replicated, it is so unique and welcoming. We recommend the Shelter wholeheartedly, make sure not to miss the Bible Studies!

    It's primarily a Christian retreat. I'd recommend timing a visit for Shabbat. If you're open minded this place will make your stay in Eilat worthwhile because it's not really a backpacker town but a stay at this hostel provides a cheap but memorable experience - which are unfortunately lacking in this part of Israel. Only hostel I've ever been where the owner has taken guests (and primarily the volunteers) to the beach!

    Nice place to stay, I didn't really realize it's a Christian hostel before booking (I should have read more), but they were nice and welcoming regardless, I just personally felt a bit uncomfortable there.

    Very Good

    The rooms were very hot despite the desert cooler, but the place is nice overall. The outside patio is a nice place to sit in the evening. There are no personal lockers so you have to give the staff your valuables to lock up. I was surprised to find out that it is a Christian hostel upon my arrival -- they have Bible study every day and gave me a Bible when I arrived. I had no problem with this, but I thought that the information on the website would have been more explicit on this aspect.

    Definitely not a nice hostel. The rooms are super small with barely any space for luggage. The bathroom was also super small. The place is dirty and there’s no real AC in summer when temperatures are way over 35C. Do yourself a favour and book somewhere else
