Rooms did not have bedding, pillows, towels. The aircon never worked. The staff was rude. Staff complained when I asked for bedding. Had to clean our own rooms and bedding. Maggots in food, and staff were unhelpful and brushed off the situation as if nothing was wrong. Due to renovations we had to use the back entrance. The wifi was... More

Also considered a youth hostel, there are many individuals visiting this place and not youth groups. Visited here for a lof times as group of divers for 1-2 nights. The location is very good The prices are not the cheapest available in the area but decent enough for what you getting and include breakfast on spot. Also, lately, they renovating... More

The hostel was a great place to stay in Eilat, especially since it was difficult to find a reasonably priced hotel room there. As mentioned by the other travelers, from the outside the building appears abandoned due to construction. However, don't be alarmed by this - during out stay, there was always a security guard on duty. There is some... More

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
