“Wonderful”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

So new it wasn't even on our map of Israel's Youth Hostels, this guesthouse is located right next to the Crusader fortress which is one of the main visitor attractions to the ancient port city of Akko/Acre and within a 10 minute walk of the Mediterranean Sea.

Parking is next door to the hostel and cost 20 Shekels/day at the time we stayed here.

Food was top notch and well presented. Rooms were new and well kept. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Everything about this place was excellent and worthwhile. Highly recommended!

We stayed here in July of 2012, our only complaint was that we hadn't stayed here longer, this place was fantastic and great value for money.
We were a group of three separate family's and even though there were a few little hick ups they were sorted very quickly in fact the staff could not do enough for us! I would highly recommend this to everyone and the next time we are in Israel this will be where I will be coming.
The rooms are really spacious and you get your own balcony which for us was lovely so we could sit out having a few drinks looking over the Old city of Akko.

We'd had great experiences recently with youth hostels in Israel, and we came here after seeing a notice about a special on the Israel Youth Hostels website (www.iyha.org.il). This hostel overlooks the main old city gate. The building itself is new and the rooms were large. Great balcony overlooking the old city walls. We were there for the weekend so there were many meals, all very good. Of course the price was much lower than even a cheap hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the old city with a balcony.

I can reccommend this for really excellant value for money. The food is kosher and really of a very high standard. I agree it is more like a hotel then a hostel, I have been in many 5 star hotels which didnt match this place. The hostel is situated right near to the Arab shuk. No complaints and would return again if I had to be in Akko.

In Akko this hotel is very big, clean and spacious, nice photos of Akko on the walls, and the baconies with view of the old city and the mosque are just fantastic! I really enjoyed my stay here, plus the staff is very helpful and nice. This quality for a good price is not easy to find in Israel, I warmly recommend it.

Good place to stay, clean rooms,

Great location, wonderful free breakfast. Rooms clean with balconies, refrigerators and televisions. More like a hotel than a hostel.
