“A real youth hostel, this is like traveling back in time”
Reviewed September 30, 2009

This is a review of the Bet She'an hostel, which is located in the town of Bet She'an. I don't know why TripAdvisor places it in Ein Gedi, some 200 kms away.

A new hostel, it is marketed as something between a guesthouse and a boutique hotel. In reality, this is the standard type of impersonal, dirty, noisy youth hostel that only teens can enjoy. Rooms are small and spartan, blankets are the brown pseudo-wool type, mattresses are thin and poor quality, showers are the clean-after-yourself brand. Dirty corridors, teens paying football in the lobby, noisy until the early hours, breakfast had some of the cheapest ingredients available in Israel. All this for something like $100 per room. I would drive an hour each way to avoid this place.

This Guesthouse/Youth Hostel is huge and right on the main street. It is a few blocks from a large grocery store (off the main street). The staff was very nice. The room was big and had a balcony. The shower was the kind that needed the squeegee after use but did'nt pose a problem. The buffet breakfast was nothing special but was still a good value for the price. This place was family friendly, almost to the point of being too noisy with screaming, playful children running on all the floors, up until 10 PM. After that, we slept fine. We'd stay there again.
