Very Good 8.2 From 46 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
The hostel is in a near-central area, with rather easy access to a supermarket. The beach is a 15-minute walk away. The staff is generally friendly. Many special thanks to Ruth, who was very very nice.

Poor 2.0
Looked good online. Came highly recommended. But the we arrived. Front door would not stay latched. Shower head leaked and sprayed water all over bathroom. Used towel to mop it up only to find out they charge extra for replacement towels. Noise all night long. Breakfast was good but they made us wash our dishes. Had to strip our beds and deliver sheets down stairs. Place is quit worn with sloppy maintenance. Absolutely not “very good”!

my experience from the time i stay at Arava hostel
amazing place to spend the weekend, very good service i slept like a baby because the area is very quiet, there are shops nearby so you can go to eat lunch only 300 meters from the hostel, the crew is very kind and i felt like I'm staying in my family place, not in a hostel, the one that stands above all was Tommy great guy with very high service awareness, i will come again for sure :)

Great budget room for night
Great budget room for night; walk-able to beach/center (not in summer). Good breakfast included; nice ground; room with kettle and small refrigerator; easy street parking (and limited on site parking). Very clean.Locker is 10 NIS (up to 24 hr).

Easy walk to bus station
Easy walk to the bus station and good inexpensive restaurants. Good outdoor lounging space. Only concern was that my bunk room was stuffy and had no windows; not the best place to share with two guys who were sick.

Basic comforts and the friendliest service imagina
The friendliness and service at this hotel was superb. All staff were super helpful, and given the cost, this was a super value. If you want luxury this is not the place for you. But if you want basic comforts and an atmosphere that makes you feel welcome, do not hesitate to book. You can even walk to the airport!
Laraine, gbFamily trip
Good 6.0
Breakfast was very good: salad, bread, jam and chokolate paste, milk, soft cheese, olives. It is very good location, 10 min walk to the Central bus station and very close to the local airport. Supermarket is 10 min by foot. But I didn’ like the shower.
