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 :)

Easy walk to bus station

Easy walk to the bus station and good inexpensive restaurants. Good outdoor lounging space. Only concern was that my bunk room was stuffy and had no windows; not the best place to share with two guys who were sick.

Stayed 1 night in Dec 2018
