Room was basic but very clean. Good price for expensive Eilat. Security-wise I found the place a bit sketchy. Once inside the hostel everything is fine, but the outside is a bit concerning as the hostel is currently under construction and from the outside looks a bit like an abandoned hotel. As a female traveling alone I didn't feel safe... More

I loved this place, despite the drawbacks. The place has numerous positives. The rooms are a nice size and very clean. The view of the Gulf of Aqaba is fabulous. It is very close to the big shopping center, cafes, restaurants, and nightlife. It is only a couple of block from the Red Sea. The breakfast is excellent (and they... More

Clean, modest, quite place - excellent for low budget travellers and families. Great air condition, great location and a very welcoming staff make this place a very good choice. No luxery - but who needs it? A very close shop for diving props, the red sea within minutes of walk (although the rif is quite far). Good to know this... More

Pluses: Reasonable price. Clean room. Yummy breakfast! Free, fast Wifi. Great view from the window. Kettle , tea and coffee in the room. Clean , brand-new showers. Good location- malls, party street, the beach are very close. Minuses: No soap or shampoo included. Only one pair of big towels. Renovation works- elevator doesn't work, had to climb the stairs.

I stayed at the hostel at both ends of a trip to Petra in Jordan. When I stayed the hostel was under construction so there were no working elevators. I was lucky my taxi driver carried my suitcase up the first flight of stairs from the street. I proceeded to drag it up two more flights when fortunately another guest... More

We stayed at the hostel in Eilat for three days in August. It has a great location, a short walk from the airport and across the street from the beach. We booked a double room with private bathroom using the HostelBookers website. It was $120 USD a night, which is ridiculous for a hostel, but not for Eilat in the... More

I only stayed here one night but I have no qualms with this hostel. Room was clean, AC worked and I had consistent WiFi signal which is saying a lot for Israel. Location is decent - close to the beach and food. Staff was friendly and packed a breakfast for me as I had to leave early in the morning... More

I spent one night here in April 2015--I had some difficulty finding the place, as it is a bit set back from the main road, but that's on me. The staff was completely friendly and helpful, packed me a breakfast because I had to leave before the dining room opened. There's a fine terrace looking out to sea, and the... More
