I spent one night here, and it was my only bad experience on my month and a half long trip. I had 400 dollars stolen from me, the staff were completely unhelpful and the video cameras were also useless. I would have been okay with the loss of the staff had not been rude and unbelieving of me along the...

We accidentally stumbled across this hostel on our travels and had an such a fun stay. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful! Pool vibe and common room felt inviting and friendly. Food is incredible especially the kinder Bueno milkshake!! Cheap and clean. Perfect as a base hostel to go to and from places around.

Indeed there are a lot of Israelis in nirvana but there are always some non Israelis if you are worried about that. The pool is nice and is useful when you are too lazy to go to the beach. The food is great and cheap - order the brownie milkshake. The staff are super nice (all english speaking non-israelis) and...

Disorganised staff. Had to ask many times for things to get done. Rooms off the courtyard were subjected to loud music all day long until well into the night. When music did eventually stop people continued to stay up drinking until 5am. Fine if you want to party all night, but if you want to get up to do activities...

The pool is really dirty and they have bugs in the rooms. They just need to clean the place. Beds also not good, mattresses are really old . The Food is good. Basically is a Israeli place, but there are other people as well

I was planning to die a few days there but managed to escape after one night ! The hostel itself is not bad ( apart that they squeezed more beds than the room was designed for so its impossible even to walk in the room with all the suitcases and the only power outlet is behind the extra beds they...

“We had room #10 on the second level. Five bunks... just dont go for the beds near the window unless you love saunas. Putting an extra blanket up helped block out the sun during the day. The shared toilet was just outside our door. So was a sort of private lounge area that we took over often. Good spot”
