We had a 2-person room, but it is very small and the beds were with blankets who were not so clean. The staff is kind and the garden is beautiful and the location is allright. So if you are a budget traveller you can consider booking this hostel.

They had room despite late notice (low season), the dorm wasn't expensive. The bed was clean, the bathroom was clean. The location was good and the staff were polite and helpful with information for Jordan (Petra, Visa on Arrival-didn't need one), etc.

Loved the staff and people hanging around, good showers and dorms. Inside common area is less cosy, but people mingle quite happily anyway, and you'd be able to stay outdoors sitting on the sofas and by the picnic tables well into the night even in December. Nice view, by the way. Wifi works well in shared spaces, less in the...

We loved the free parking, beautiful garden and friendly staff. You can rent snorkels for 15 NIS (4 USD) a day, great for snorkelling in the Dead Sea. Supermarket is a 10min walk. Best to have a car to get around.
