  • 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...
  • No reception, no thick walls between the rooms, not enough restroom, no cool tenant, no payment invoice available, no nothing... I travelled a lot across Israel and first time that I write a negative comment
  • 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.
