Great value
Cool hostel great a great vibe. I stayed in a private queen bedroom, although it was small it was perfect for 2 budget travelers. The hostel looked new and was clean.

once is enough
This place is on the “run down” side. Everything needs a good scrub, a new paint job and some serious maintenance. The shower head felt on my head, the curtain + rod came off the wall and felt on my head. The water ran all over floor when showering. I was given the wet bedding, and it was so stink that I have to exchange it. I was on the top bunk and the ceiling flood light directed 3 feet away from my face. Everytime it switched on, it felt like a torture lamp. And the AC was 4 feet away from my body and it was on all night. It made me sick the next day. But I most happy with the staff. They were very friendly, helpful and professional. Shout out to Maor and Andrew for making my stay bearable.

Good 6.0
Nice hostel, wouldn't stay again.
I stayed here earlier in my trip and faced the same issue both times. I know I booked a mixed dorm but I feel the staff should put people of the same age range in the same dorm. Both times I stayed here it was just me and a man over the age of 40 in a 6 bed dorm (I am a 26 year old solo female traveller). The second time, the receptionist gave me a top bunk which I am completely fine with however it was above the only other person in this room thus making an uncomfortable situation even more uncomfortable.

A nice hotel
It is a nice place to stay. It will be perfect if there is a washing machine or laundry services.

Best experience at a Hostel. Very good.
My stay was good, almost very good because it was during Purim celebrations and the hostel was crowded and noisy, but good especially for the young people who had lots of entrainment and activities. Every thing else was very good considering it is a Hostel and what was offered was very good for the price.

Very good, practical and well located
Very good, practical and well located. The receptionist was very attentive. He managed to put all of us friends in a single room. It was my first experience at a hostel.

Not recommended the risk
Its ur Typical clean but rude, unorganized, uniformational, rock hard bed, and uncompfortable Israeli accommodation. Not a safe, fun, accommodating, and tourist ready social part of the world that would be worth there money hungry price tag that they charge for everything here that in return really lacks quality, taste, organized service and comfort in return for all your harder working dollars u get forced to spend here compared to greater cheaper less greedy more organized business ready Europe that is.
