“Absolute Shambles”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Poor. Poor. poor. The Australian sounding manager with the grey moustache showed a complete lack of respect to his customers and was extremely rude to us. For example, he gave very monosolabic answers and spoke about us to other staff members infront of us. The place had an unfriendly atmosphere and the rooms were impossibly small. One ray of light emerging from the hostel from hell was the American woman who was very kind and helpful because she probably felt sorry for the appalling manner in which customers of the hostel were treated. In summary, dont stay at the Corinne unless all other hostels, park benches and bins are full.

This hotel is cheap, and so are the accommodations. All the other reviews are exactly right. Sometimes you get friendly staff, and sometimes you get some that are having a bad day. Yes, the shower, toilet, and sink are all in one, and yes, the room is tiny, and a double bed means one big bed. However, it is very cheap and while in Eilat you don't want to stay in the room anyways.

Good place to sleep and extremely close to the bus station (a plus). It does take a bit to walk to the central pier, but whatevs.

This place was so clean and the dorm room we stayed in was spacious and had brilliant air con. The staff were nice and as we were leaving, the woman was stripping all the sheets off the beds - always reassuring!
The wifi worked really well in the dorm downstairs.
I don't know what everyone is complaining about - its simple, clean and good value for money. Just what the type of traveller that would stay here would want/need.

We stayed there just one night but can recommend even for a group of people. We were 7 people in total and got one of the basement rooms - it was very clean, the room had its own shower and WC and also a fridge! The room had air-conditioning so it was not hot at all. You cannot expect luxury but definatelly worth the money you pay.

Creepy statues and paintings, weird rules: Wifi is only in the lobby, which closes at midnight, but yet the doors are all open. They just wont let you sit in the lobby. So we ended up sitting outside on the curb to get wifi. 24 hour wifi is necessary for travelers in terms of time zones!
The staff weren't very nice, but the room was decent, price was ok. It had AC which was probably it's greatest feature.

My 6 bed dorm room was very nice for the price I paid with lots of space, a fridge and a private bathroom. The hostel did have some very strange rules for no obvious reason and the staff seemed quite unhelpful.

I have stayed here previously and witnessed the unhelpful attitude of the staff towards other guests, but as I was not on the receiving end myself I thought maybe the guests had been confrontational or had unrealistic expectations, so decided on my next visit to stay again.
So when I returned ( with quite a friendly demeanor) I could not understand why the staff were not just so rude and unhelpful but so hostile with it. I asked a simple question to 'David' who replied " I've only been on for ten minutes and I'm already getting grief" He turned his his back on me and walked away into the kitchen with no answer. He did this in plain view of other guests and quite humiliated me. I heard him speaking to others in a similar tone later that evening.
The room had been cleaned but it stank of feet from the previous occupant (not the staffs' fault),
but they could at least have made some attempt to reduce the odour.
Would never stay again.
