  • Nice hostel close to the center and nice staff. Common area is very nice. Rooms are clean and worth the money - but thin walls in case you are noise sensitive.
  • Place is near railway station, it is clean and relativelly good. It is no enough space to create better human relations and it is suitable more for just overnight stay.
  • Great location right next to the city center. The hostel looks really nice. No contact with the owner - we really struggled to meet him to pay for the hostel and had to wait for him before we checked out and moved to another city. Tiny kitchen with no cups.
  • Went 2 times. Walls are too small, not insulate. When there is people you can hear everything. The owner is never here. He is doing everything by phone. Last time I waited 30min before to check with the lady (very kind) who is doing the cleaning and spoke only Russian. Price is too high for that quality.
  • went once in october. Place was dirty, no owner or contact nearby and one room wasn't ready when we arrived. When the room finally was given to us, it was still dirty. There was a condom in the 'cleaned' bed, and even worse the plumming: it flooded the shower with very very dirty water. we couldn't stay there obviously. After all the room was to expensive for the quality and i would look for another hostel nearby. It wouldn't hurt to look a little further...

Where to stay in Haifa

Look in the German Colony district close to the port to find the main bulk of the accommodations in Haifa. With its proximity to many of the urban attractions, this area has become a modern tourism hot spot. Here, you'll discover a rich mix of luxury hotels and boutiques set in well-maintained old blocks, as well as particularly budget-friendly options such as guesthouses. Alternatively, the coastline provides plenty of upmarket hotels in the more developed neighborhoods, and a scattering of guesthouses and resorts close to the sandy beaches.
