modern atmosphere with impressive renovations. An elevator for those who need. Staff are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The rooms are clean, towels, shampoo, soap. Beds/pillows and covers are comfortable. Buffet breakfast has many selections. The location is perfect. The upper deck is large and enjoyable. Students were there during our stay. They stayed on first floor and respected quiet hours...

Great location, helpful staff, reasonable price, nice room and and bathroom (specially after a visit to Jordan), close to the underwater observatory (bus number 15 in front of the hostel. Runs every full hour). It is situated almost at the sea promenade. If I am here again, I will book a roomhere

Rooms did not have bedding, pillows, towels. The aircon never worked. The staff was rude. Staff complained when I asked for bedding. Had to clean our own rooms and bedding. Maggots in food, and staff were unhelpful and brushed off the situation as if nothing was wrong. Due to renovations we had to use the back entrance. The wifi was...

The hostel was a great place to stay in Eilat, especially since it was difficult to find a reasonably priced hotel room there. As mentioned by the other travelers, from the outside the building appears abandoned due to construction. However, don't be alarmed by this - during out stay, there was always a security guard on duty. There is some...

Room was basic but very clean. Good price for expensive Eilat. Security-wise I found the place a bit sketchy. Once inside the hostel everything is fine, but the outside is a bit concerning as the hostel is currently under construction and from the outside looks a bit like an abandoned hotel. As a female traveling alone I didn't feel safe...

I loved this place, despite the drawbacks. The place has numerous positives. The rooms are a nice size and very clean. The view of the Gulf of Aqaba is fabulous. It is very close to the big shopping center, cafes, restaurants, and nightlife. It is only a couple of block from the Red Sea. The breakfast is excellent (and they...

Clean, modest, quite place - excellent for low budget travellers and families. Great air condition, great location and a very welcoming staff make this place a very good choice. No luxery - but who needs it? A very close shop for diving props, the red sea within minutes of walk (although the rif is quite far). Good to know this...

Pluses: Reasonable price. Clean room. Yummy breakfast! Free, fast Wifi. Great view from the window. Kettle , tea and coffee in the room. Clean , brand-new showers. Good location- malls, party street, the beach are very close. Minuses: No soap or shampoo included. Only one pair of big towels. Renovation works- elevator doesn't work, had to climb the stairs.
