Loved this place - good vibe, friendly staff, quiet, clean, just a stone's throw from the central bus station and a few minutes walk from the sea. No elevator but just 2 flights of stairs - no problem. I'll be back!!

So sorry to hear of your experience. Really. I wish I could know which room you were in, but we'll check the ac anyway. We just fired both of the renegade staff members, I admit they got out of hand, and did even worse things to us and took us a while to give up on them and realize they... More

We stayed here for two nights during a trip around Israel. Hostel is clean with friendly staff and great vibe, will be even better once they finish the common room & rooftop. We were also big fans of breakfast and the dog... We stayed over the Sabbath so there wasn't a lot to do (although that's kind of Tiberias in... More

Stayed for only one night, but definitely plan to return. Top-floor location central to town and superb. Staff are amazing and really went out of the way to make the stay awesome! Breakfast was good. Staff took us out for happy hour on a nearby kibbutz which was a nice touch. Back next year for sure!

My first stay in a hostel and I can only say that I stayed in much worse hotels. A comfortable bed in a great well kept room with air conditioning. We can ask for more, great staff, great breakfast central location... All at a very reasonable price. Hostels aren't just for young people try this out.
