Reviewed 12 October 2013

This hostel is conveniently located in Eilat, within walking distance to a mall and the beach. With private secure parking round the back of the premises, it is no frills clean and tidy, that is easy to come back to after a day at the beach. It provides an excellent Israeli buffet breakfast. The shared balcony areas have a tremendous view out over Eilat towards Aqaba that is quite mesmerising in its variety through the day in the different angles of the sun. We love staying here on our annual break away to Eilat!

Room Tip: The blocks near the roadside offer rooms with easy access to the verandas overlooking the Red Sea an...

Everything about the stay so far has been simple and pleasant. The staff was very helpful, the rooms very clean and its great value for money. Breakfast is included, increasing the value and the location is impeccable, situated in the middle of downton eilat with the shopping mall and promenade within a 5 minutes walk.

This hostel is very well positioned near the marina and shops, and has a lovely terrace overlooking the city for a few beers. It's not the most sociable place in the world, we didn't really meet the other guests as there are no communal areas except for the terrace, but it was clean, modern and comes with breakfast (which can be boxed up for early risers). Best of all were the staff who were helpful beyond the call of duty.

The room was basic, spacious and clean. Just what my friends and I needed.
The breakfast buffet was much richer than what we expected with an assortment of cheeses and vegetables.
Central location- walking distance to the beach, mall, promenade, etc.
As long as you're not expecting a 4-5 star hotel, you'll be happy with this place.
We paid 150 USD for 3 persons in a four bed room in the middle of August.
Friendly staff- especially the helpful Chen at the reception!

It's not really a hostel in the way we see it. The guests are not communicating with each other, you are not going to meet and get to know other people here. Otherwise everything is just fine. The rooms are simple, but clean, the beach is just across the road as well as the shopping center and a couple of cheap self-catering shops. The bus to the coral beach stops just at the entrance. The breakfast is rich. Though, wi-fi could work better.
The staff is really friendly and helping. Many thanks to the girl at the reception, who gave me an advice to put my foot in the hot water when I stepped on something in the water and it left some black dots in my foot.
So, I'd say it's a simple hotel, not a hostel. Totally worths it's money.

Not a big hostel guy . . . but this is a wonderful clean, well located international hostel. I would book with friends any time. Good breakfast in the morning. Be careful if you park though. ASK where to park. They have a great safe and secure lot - wire, gates, cameras etc. But if you think the parking out front is the hostel's you will get a ticket like me!

Room Tip: all the same as far as I could tell

Stayed here for two nights with my partner, very clean and comfortable with tea/coffee making facilities and a fridge. We had a great view of the Red Sea and Jordan as well.

Whilst in terms of hostage prices generally its not the cheapest, you have to remember that hotels in Eilat are insanely expensive so by comparison this was fantastic value for money especially as it included a huge and varied breakfast buffet. Staff were all friendly and helpful, when they learnt we were a couple they changed our room to a double bed as our Internet booking had mistakenly implied we were after a twin room., the beach is literally a 2min walk away and there is a shopping centre also 2mins away. The ice mall is about a 10min walk away if you fancy some ice skating in the 40+ degree temps too! Would definitely stay here again :)
