Really nice small hostel with friendly and helpful staff! We had a really nice stay there! :) It has all the facilities needed and is nice and friendly place. You can rent a mask for a small fee and snorchel in the Red Sea. Breakfast is not included in the price and you can do your laundry for 20 shekels.

A friend and I stayed here for a couple days, enjoying Eilat before Petra, and it was wonderful! Room was clean. Front desk very friendly and helpful. The lady at the front is really really nice. Breakfast isn't included, but that's ok.

All of the staff kept the place spotless. You can walk there from the airport, it's a short walk to town. Staff friendly, great courtyard and cooking facilities. Most importantly, cold beer. Great hostel. Chris M. Australia.

I stayed in Arava on my way to and from Petra. Its location is perfect for travelers heading to Petra for a day or 2.

Besides the room, which was great, what I really appreciated was the woman at the front desk who went out of her way to help me try and figure out how I was going to cross the border to Egypt during a VERY tight schedule and during Yom Kippur. Thank you for that! My room was very clean, comfortable, and...

I chose the place mainly because it was familiar from a previous trip, and I just needed a place to sleep for a night. Though within walking distance of the bus station, the beach is quite far from the hostel. I had a private room, which was very small but included a fridge, TV, wall A/C unit, and tiny bathroom....
