my experience from the time i stay at Arava hostel
amazing place to spend the weekend, very good service i slept like a baby because the area is very quiet, there are shops nearby so you can go to eat lunch only 300 meters from the hostel, the crew is very kind and i felt like I'm staying in my family place, not in a hostel, the one that stands above all was Tommy great guy with very high service awareness, i will come again for sure :)

Easy walk to bus station
Easy walk to the bus station and good inexpensive restaurants. Good outdoor lounging space. Only concern was that my bunk room was stuffy and had no windows; not the best place to share with two guys who were sick.

Great value with staff that truly cares
I stayed here for 2 nights on my way to Jerusalem. Eilat is not a cheap town as accommodations can be expensive but the dorms are good value for what you get. The hostel is nicer than appears in the pictures with a garden area to hang out / socialize, good Wifi inside, clean shared bathroom and rooms with comfy beds and power outlets by the bed and a good breakfast. It is well located and within walking distance to the airport, central train station and various restaurants / markets. A dishonest taxi driver took off with my main luggage still in the trunk which is every traveller's nightmare and the staff Ruth and Tommy were very kind and empathetic of my situation. They took the time to help me call all the taxi companies around town and helped me deal with it as best they could. I would highly recommend this hostel.
