The hostel is perfectly located, close to the Bahai Gardens, a few restaurants and close enough to the train station. I had a private room, which was clean and comfortable. The bath is shared. The staff was always very friendly and helpful. I believe with...More

About
Description
Ahlan wa Sahlan fi Al-Yakhour! We are happy to invite and welcome you to Al-Yakhour Hostel Haifa. In a historical building in the German Colony -the tourism hotspot of modern Haifa- and at the edge of the Mount ...More Carmel, Al-Yakhour Hostel is a start-up project by a group of young Palestinians. It is also a meeting point for Haifa locals. As a great place to begin your trip around the country, Al-Yakhour will open up many possibilities to explore the land and its stories through the people. Want to discover Haifa/Galilee/Golan Heights/ Akka and other cities? but don't have a clue where to begin? Travel the traditional way! Get to know Palestinians, hear their stories and take trip advice from locals. The Yakhouris are happy to guide you. Are you a group of friends traveling together? The beach is just 10 minutes away from the bus station right in front of the hostel. Looking for Haifa's nightlife? With dozens of restaurants, cafes, and bars walking-distance from the hostel, you're sure to have a good time. The popular Masada Street's bars are just 10 minutes away. Want to see the beauty of the country? The Mount Carmel and the Haifa Bay are famous sights of natural beauty, with many hiking trails around the mountain. Al-Yakhour is the Turkish name for a historic place in Haifa where, until the early 20th century, horses were loaded with barley on their way to the windmills. The ancient Al-Yakhour was owned by George Seuss, who welcomed German Caesar Wilhelm II and his wife Augusta Victoria during their visit to Haifa in 1898 and led them by his horse and wagon through the German colony heading to the Mount Carmel where there are now memorial cannon. In this rustic atmosphere, at the heart of the Hostel is a cozy lounge with a bar and library. Evenings will be passed with good music (to one's own taste..), table games, cards and the one or another drink. We're looking forward to additionally hosting different kinds of events here. We are a low cost hostel, which means: In the mornings you can get a rich breakfast on the cheap or cook your lunch in the fully-equipped kitchen. You can use the laundry room and hostel-owned towels for a small contribution. The rooms are air- conditioned and we provide free Wi-Fi. The dorms contain 4 to 8 beds, or you can choose one of two apartments. We are renovating the courtyard into a garden, perfect for mild summer evenings. This is how you reach us: From the airport and all major cities, Al-Yakhour is easy to get to by public transportation. Via train, the Haifa Central station is only a 10-minute walk. From either of Haifa's central bus stations (Hof HaCarmel and Merkazit HaMifratz) the Germany Colony is easily accessible by many bus routes. The easy to use Metronit routes 1 and 2 arrive in front of the Hostel and operate in English, Arabic and Hebrew. Yalla, looking forward to seeing you! Salamat Less
