Great place!
Very clean and comfortable! Giant cooking area with lots of basic necessities. This hostel is an old boarding school which gave it a great ambience. Fantastic location. Ori, the host, is very warm and welcoming. Definitely recommend!

Clean + Friendly Hostel
A very clean Hostel with very friendly hosts. We stayed in one of the 4-bed rooms, which was perfect for our group. It was very quiet and peaceful. Thanks for the pleasant experience!

Nice place
Friendly, very clean, comfortable rooms, comfortable beds, clean bathrooms and showers, nice location. Only thing is the walls are really thin so you can hear your neighbors conversations, otherwise, really nice place.
