A nice guest house. OK for it's category. Maintenance could and should be more attentive, or the prices should drop by half.... Locals are welcoming and warm, one night stay is enough. The food around is great and the beach is wonderful.

Unusual place for a hostel-but interesting. We were in Caesarea here thinking Juhas it was near. Its a few kilometers north, and its a different world. Caesarea is one of the richest towns in Israel - Jisr is not. Its a friendly Arab town with problems. We showed up and the first thing they did was offer us a free 1 hour guided walk around town. Neat., and they didn't even ask for a tip- they just wanted you to see the town and understand its situation. The hotel is small but friendly , off the beaten track and a view of non-touristy village life. The hostel itself is OK , not much in the way of kitchen utensils, needs bowls , spoons etc but the chairs/ benches were very uncomfortable to sit for any time to mix with fellow travellers...they need to buy chairs. Not much for

I spent a night there as part of an Abraham Tour, the 5 day northern Israel/Jordan loop. This segment, in Jisr al Zarqa, was by far the most disorganized. There were 3 others on the same tour, and the 4 of us were dropped off with our luggage. We were given a tour of the area by a lovely woman who clearly has so much love for the region and its people. She left at the beach to enjoy a swim. We were also told that someone would come get us to take us to dinner. When that person arrived, she explained that she was volunteering there for the summer, as part of the development of the area. This is the poorest region in Israel. Her whole attitude was not welcoming. She questioned us about if we had paid yet, and seemed skeptical when we explained we were on a tour and the payment

The guest house is located in small, purely Arab village north of Cesarea. It is a bit like entering a different country. A challenge is that almost nobody speaks English on the street, so it took some time to find the hostel - despite it being the only one in the village and located right in the centre, The hosts are great and the rooms are nice and cosy. The hostel organises dinner at a local family - worth doing it. The village is not especially pretty, but has one of the lasts undeveloped beaches in Israel (although that does not mean tidy)

I've been to Israel many times but it was so nice to get off the beaten path and see a side of Israel I haven't seen before, it's the poorest Arab village in Israel yet the most welcoming, went to the owners house for dinner and lunch his wife Hayfa is an amazing cook and even taught us how to make some dishes.
