“Special Shabbat in Tzfat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

I went to Tzfat with 4 other friends and we really loved our stay. We could all share the same room, that was clean and organised. All the meals were very nice and the Shabbat program was really inspiring.
I wish I could come back every Shabbat :-)
The staff was very friendly and sweet.

Room Tip: Good place to go with lots of friends, so you can all share the same room.

Definitely my favorite place in Safed. The staff is really helpful and kind. Great place to meet awesome people. Feels like going back home. Look out for the porch. Great view. Perfect for relaxing and just chilling.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

It may be a little different experience off-season. The place is quirky and charming. Clean. All kinds of room options, but they are rather basic, and come with a fan and a space heater. You might want to bring your own towel and toiletries. The views and tranquility are lovely. Classes, seminars and discussions are available throughout the day. Porches, gardens, and libraries are available for relaxing, praying and reading. Refrigerator and hot water are always available. Usually (but not always) there is coffee and tea set out as well. Everyone working there is super friendly and helpful. The other guests could be from anywhere and that adds to the fun. A great place to learn about Jewish mysticism, or just an inexpensive place to stay while in the wonderful environment of Tzfat/Safed. All kinds of food shopping and eating are just around the corner and a block away. The Central Bus Station is a 10-minute walk.

I really enjoyed my stay. There was a fun creative art workshop and then we had a meditation session in the local forest. It was a great chance to learn about Kabbala and Jewish mysticism. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean the porches and the views were beautiful!

Ascent is located on a gorgeous look out of the mystical scenery of safed. The hostel itself is huge consisting of not just rooms, but numerous porches from which to take in the view, a tea room, Kabbala exhibit, Kabbala cave and library to educate yourself on Kabbalah. There is a daily program of classes and activities for those staying at the hostel. While you do not need to be religious to stay here prepare yourself for some religious ceremonies and if you stay for Shabbat to be paired with a family for dinner. If you are goin to safed and want an authentic experience that will put you in touch with the area, definitely stay at ascent! The rooms are nice and cleanly and have beautiful views.
