Really Small and not the cleanest place, but very ok
for a cheap(ish) stay. Roommates make or brake it
ours were really nice, so Everything was ok. They
have a cat, the best part about the stay <3
the staff was also great, helpful and nice!

The only redeeming thing about the whole stay was that we only had to put up with it for one night

-The website clearly states that they take credit cards, yet when I arrived the man at the front desk argued with me and would only take cash.

-Very very overpriced for the size and quality of the room, ie. barely even space to put bags on the floor in the room (there were no cupboards or table, etc), bathroom was very dirty.

-We explicitly stated to the man at the front desk on check in that we would be awake at 5 am and checking out around 5:30 am. He did not let us know that between 12am and 6am the hot water would be shut off on purpose and so the person I was staying with had a freezing cold shower in the morning.

Room Tip: Above review is for room 15 - stay away.

This is my genuine opinion following my stay. 1st of all, you will be asked to pay the cost of your stay + approx 20 euros of city tax (which is normal) Secondly, you will have to leave a deposit of 10 euros for the room key. Not necessary as I can assure you the door could just be kicked down with a push kick. Stayed in room 15 which is meant to accommodate two. Bunk bed is dirty, no side table, chair, shelves or proper lighting. "Bathroom" is a 3 in 1 facility as you can pee, wash and brush teeth at the same time. There is nothing which separates or gives clear space between the sink and the toilet. Terribly dirty and disgusting smell coming from the toilet. Would not recommend for families or couples. Only for young and uncaring people.

Room Tip: If possible, ask to see the room before you get one allocated. Do not accept room 15 as it is likely...

I booked for one bed in a 4 bed room and paid 50 euros per night as it was last minute.

The public spaces had not been cleaned for quite a while and everything was very old.
The room was small (not enough space to even open the suitcase) and the bathroom was filthy. I have served in the army but Sarphati's dirtiness made the army look like a joke!

The breakfast is basic (bread, peanut butter, jam and coffee/tea).

The upside is that the staff is polite and friendly and the location is good.

As a synopsis, the experience was quite disheartening given the extremely low quality of the infrastructure as well as its lack of maintenance, which could not be offset by the good manners of the receptionists.

I would not recommend this hostel and if you end up staying there be forewarned; at least ask to see your room before prepaying 100% of your fees.

I stayed 2 nights at the hostel and my first impression when I entered into the place was about a lack of cleaness. There was a strong bad smell, the carpets were really dirty, the room's floor was sticky, as the tiny little bathroom. The blankets were broken and I had to ask for a pillow change. All this experience for a cost of 80 euros for two nights.
