  • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Deceived

Looked good online. Came highly recommended. But the we arrived. Front door would not stay latched. Shower head leaked and sprayed water all over bathroom. Used towel to mop it up only to find out they charge extra for replacement towels. Noise all night long. Breakfast was good but they made us wash our dishes. Had to strip our beds and deliver sheets down stairs. Place is quit worn with sloppy maintenance. Absolutely not “very good”!

    my experience from the time i stay at Arava hostel

    amazing place to spend the weekend, very good service i slept like a baby because the area is very quiet, there are shops nearby so you can go to eat lunch only 300 meters from the hostel, the crew is very kind and i felt like I'm staying in my family place, not in a hostel, the one that stands above all was Tommy great guy with very high service awareness, i will come again for sure :)
