Some of the steep stairs to dorms are broken, and too narrow to put a full foot on them. Dangerous stair to navigate. A fall guarantees broken bones. My group had 2 rooms. Both were stinking. The bathroom walls smell like they haven't seen disinfectants or bleach. One of them had a strong smell of raw sewage that seeped to...

This is a magical location very uniquely decorated right at the beautiful heart of old Acre. Please be warned that the rooms are extremely basic and not for fussy people, although decent and clean. The owners very friendly and the breakfast is outstandingly good. It would have been a great place if the conditions were bit more comfortable. As it...

For me to spend a night like this is okay. If you get it for free... but paying around twenty euros for a disgusting dorm and a shower which none of us wanted to use cause we didnt know how amd if it worked and it was dirty... was too much. This hostel has potential. The location and architecture is...

In the heart of the old Akko, few feet from the Mosque and just close to the Turkish bazar, it is a cheap hostel with some goods and bads. It is for sure charming, and the owners are friendly and helpful, but we had some issues with the cleaning level. Very old mattresses, minimal toilet, quite a lot of dust...

it was ok. staff were helpful and Internet was free. location is great. the complaints about distance to public transport are irrelevant - all of old Akko is sort of far from it. however there was no hot water and place was a bit dirty. a touch overpriced for what it is, but maybe the cheapest in Akko of you...

Well situated in the old city centre of Akko, in the middle of the market, a 100m far from the sea. A bit hard to find. Very relaxing place, clean but more like an hotel than an hostel. There is a slight lack of common places to share and relax. Anyway this place is hightly recommended !

Well placed hotel in the Old City of Akko, which is close to restaurants, bars and attractions. Hotel near the sea, but far away from the train station and the city center. The rooms are small and ugly. My bedding was stale and was generally dirty. Bathroom very dirty, broken shower. Air conditioning works very well in the hotel. Owner...

The hotel was in the ideal location but the room and the service were NOT worth 307 shekels. For starters, none of the rooms had toilet seats on the toilets. When we inquired as to why this was the case, the owner Moshe told us they were all broken. Secondly, when we paid he didn't have change and offered to...

I don't know what was going on, but the guy who checked us in decided to give a discount to us if we took the private room with a/c. Glad we did! Private and a/c is awesome for august! We had a really nice time there and the staff were super friendly. They'll sit and drink coffee with you for...
