SPNI Eilat Field School
Ranked #33 of 56 Speciality Lodging in Eilat
Reviewed 11 November 2013

This is a field school facility. It's like a hostel. Know what you're getting into before you book. Don't expect fancy because this is not fancy. Now, what you WILL get is a clean place to lay your head along with five of your friends. It was a little weird, but there are three bunk beds in the room so six people can sleep in it, and all of the beds are single beds. This place was fine for me and my family but I couldn't see staying here more than a night. There is breakfast and I think dinner, but I believe those cost extra. The location is right on highway 90 and right across from the Coral Reef National Park on the Red Sea.

Me and my husband have stayed here a year ago in May, during national holidays, and this May 2013 as well.
What we like the best about the place - it is a good alternative for budget travelers and the location is perfect. I personally don't like crowded area of central Eilat, and the sea is much more beautiful in south area. It's also really quite at the evening, so if you are not much about going out - I would recommend to choose south beach.

During our first stay, we used camping area of the site.
Advantages - It was very clean, not noisy. They offer you great showers, clean toilets, and some lightning. There are some trees as well which creates some kind of tent.
The disadvantage, as it was already mentioned, is that you need to leave your car outside of the site.
To summarize - you definitely can go and stay on the beach, but I think the facilities they provide in camping area, worth relatively low payment.

This year, we stayed in the room. If you stay in the room - you can use internal protected parking.
The room is very basic, it has 2 level beds - not so romantic if you are travelling as a couple :)
But it's clean, has private shower and toilet, room is equipped with AC, and it has a kettle and tea and coffee bags. They also provide you with bed linen, towels and shampoo and soap.
The breakfast is very good, they have vegetables, eggs, yogurts, some fruits, etc. It's not as crazy as in most fancy Israeli hotels, but you will not leave hungry.

Regarding the staff - in both times we have stayed there, we found them very nice and helpful.
Overall, I think it's a good value.

TIP - if you are a diver and show your diver ID - they will offer you a discount.

The SPNI Field School is slightly out of Eilat on the way to the Taba border crossing. We've camped there before but this time decided to take a room. The room was very basic but clean and equipped with aircon, en-suite shower, fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. We left before breakfast every morning but they supplied a take-out breakfast for us. Bread, cheeses, eggs, apple, tomato, cucumber, chocolate pudding etc. A huge amount! A big benefit was that it was very quiet. It's only a 5 min walk towards Eilat to find a couple of good restaurants, 24 hr shop, hotels, dive centre/snorkling etc. Another benefit is the secure parking. If you are simply looking for a quiet, cheap, place to sleep while the days are spent out and about then this is a great place to stay.
