We stayed here for 6 weeks in room 7,a great room with views across the city.I can really recommend this place.The terrace garden is great.Our hosts were very accommodating .Its a very convenient place to explore the old city.Beware their private car park is a short way up a steep hill.Ring the bell above the hostel gate keypad to attract the owner down who lives upstairs
The hostel is excellently located very near the shuk and old city part of Nazareth. The host, Tony and family were excellent hosts and gave us a very warm welcome and delicious middle eastern breakfasts. Tony went more than the extra mile for us on our first day in helping us resolve a car rental issue ( our car broke down) and we were very grateful for his help. The hostel is tucked away near the old town and access is a bit difficult, especially for those with mobility challenges. However, once again Tony went out of his way to help us and ferried some of our group up and down the hill with a very cheerful attitude. The hostel has access to a private parking area which is close by but this was not an issue as Tony provided a small cart to transport luggage to the hostel.
We had a good time in this hostel. They served an amazing breskfast on the terrasse. We had a room with a bathroom shared with 3 other room. I recommand it for a couple. Very good value hostel with free parking and free brakefast.
Staff: Fairly welcoming. She helped us with parking which was appreciated given the insane streets of Nazareth. Food: If nothing else, go just for the breakfast!!! Our was one of the most delicious meals I had in Israel. We were stuffed. Accommodations: Honestly, I'm surprised by the high reviews. We had a private room with our own bathroom on the outside. We had no A/C and it was hot. There was also NO air circulation. The smell of mildew was overpowering. I've never experienced like that. They need to get dehumidifiers ASAP. While we had our own bathroom, it was disgusting. Again, no air flow so the mildew and mold grew rampant. The bathroom was old and needed to be majorly remodeled. Perhaps out you had a bathroom in your room, it would be better??? Location: Excellent. Close to the market and churches. Everything was closed when we were there, but you might have better luck!…
The garten/terasse is very sweet and really relaxing. The rooms are ok - not the newest, but still good and clean. The location is perfect, very close to the church and to the market, located in the old houses of Nazareth. The breakfast is a dream! You will never be able to eat it completely ;) The parking is free and the ladies show you where it is. It is at a very steep hill. You cannot deine directly to the hostel (30m). I can fully recommend it - especially for this price it is unbeatable.
Kind staff with a great and delicious breakfast. They went out of their way to change up the menu on the different days. All was delicious. Private bedroom recommended. It's clean and basic. All you need. Terrace is quiet beautiful, however, if there are people outside and you have one of the two rooms surrounded by the terrace, it can get quite loud from other guests. Besides that, it only takes 2min into the old parts of Nazareth. And they have parking which is great. it's 4min away, but at least you have your card in a secured parking. Only point of improvement: better describe how to get to the hotel with rental car or provide a phone number. it was so messy to find it.
Very good place to stay. It was a little difficult to find it, but everything else was good. Close to the city centre and all the attractions in Nazareth. Friendly and helpful hosts. Beautiful garden. Free wifi
Great and peaceful family place in the heart of Nazareth, little hard to find the place but after find it you can leave the car and enjoy the city and all of her sites. Great Breakfast in a pleasant ( and surprising) garden. Will defiantly visit again. Thank you Toni and the family.
We arrived at Nazareth Hostel around 2pm. This is a small, family-run hostel, which means that there generally isn't someone there to check you in. We called their phone number and the man told us that someone would be down in a couple of minutes. Fifteen minutes later, his son, about 14 years old, came down coughing, sneezing, and sniffling. He blew his nose and checked us in. We asked where we should park, as we were parked on a side road with our bags in the car. He asked to see my boyfriend's phone, and held it with the hands he just coughed into and used to blow his nose, and said he would come with us to show us where to go, rather than telling us the directions. He directed us, which was nice because it was a bit confusing, but we made sure to keep the windows open because we didn't want to get sick from him. We drove to the gate to park and the door was locked. He didn't know the code and had to call a few times before someone answered to tell him. When we finally parked and got inside, we went to put our stuff in our room. This check-in process took a little over an hour, at the peak time of day. We booked a private room with a bathroom. The room looked ancient and unique, as the walls were stone. I felt like I was in a cave, because not only were the walls fully stone, but the room was extremely humid! The TV didn't work. The wifi didn't work (the signal from the lobby just a few steps over didn't work). We turned the air conditioner on to get some air into the room because there was only a tiny window. This helped a little bit after a few hours. I wasn't feeling too well, so I went to bed early. This wasn't an issue because there's not much to do in Nazareth at night in the dark and cold. My boyfriend and I were asleep until we heard loud knocking at the door around 8:45 pm. We ignored it and then heard the knocking again. It was the owner of the hostel, the father of the boy who helped us that afternoon. He needed to get into the room to get into the power box, which happens to be in a guest's room (?!). Such an unpleasant and awkward disturbance. The next morning we woke up in a cold and humid room and went to the lobby for breakfast. The breakfast was very good - traditional food. Pita with za'atar and haloumi cheese, plain pita, hummus, labneh, Israeli salad with avocado, a dish with tomato, mushrooms, and cheese, coffee, and tea. Overall, was not a great experience and I would not stay here again.…
Very nice to stay when in Nazareth. Located in the narrow streets of Nazareth and within a five minute walk to centre. Rooms are basic. The ones with a shared bathroom are next to the kitchen where breakfast is being prepared. The walls are thin so you will probably get woken up. Breakfast is awesome and they threat you very well. When you come with your own car, DON'T drive all the way down!!!!!! Park your car at least 50metres uphill. The way is a dead end and a challenge to drive backwards up hill.
