  • In the evening, lots of music and a special atmosphere). A lot of restaurants. Sit on the street with views of the Baha'i gardens in the evening-a super feeling. Beer and beauty)

  • The colony grew out of his arrival after the Crimean War a group of German King. On the outskirts of Haifa, then they built straight like an arrow Street. After the war the year 1914 the Germans were essentially expelled from the country. And in 200o-ies of the Haifa municipality decided on a global reconstruction. That was done. Reconstructed t roadway and homes built by the Germans. Now this street, where is located the Haifa Museum, galleries and many restaurants (including Russian)

  • מהרחוב הראשי במושבה הגרמנית יש תצפית מדהימה מלמטה לכיוון הגנים הבהאיים. יפה גם ביום וגם בלילה. מסדעות ובתי קפה לאורך הרחוב, רובם מומלצים ביותר

  • 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.
  • Very nice place for a budget traveler. All the rooms are private and the place is kept very clean. The location is great. I was in the middle of the German Colony, which is right at the foot of the Bahai Gardens and just a 10 minute walk from the train station. I would go back for sure.
  • The place is built in an office area, and seems as if it's just extra space they're renting out and wanted to make a quick buck. Beds were uncomfortable with mold growing on the walls. TVs while nice and modern didn't work properly with any cable channels. The "outdoor seating" is for the office space below. The place has walls incredibly thin, which allow you to hear everyone snoring 3 rooms away. There was no option for private bathrooms and hot water ran out after two minutes in the shower. Horrible experience, do your best to stay away.
  • We were there by one and wanted outgoing short turn off our suitcases and go shopping then ever. Since there was no Rezeptiob however, this was not. So we waited until two. As we then still no info regarding the self check in the receive had we reported us by mail and received only point out our room. Then by one threw the money in the mail box was paid. All so very impersonal. On the last day, we met the cleaning lady just bleated us that we had thrown the key in the mailbox which was probably wrong time then. In this regard we had not received but also instructions. Otherwise, the hostrl was good. Good lagr good beds and bathrooms were also ok.
