The Fauzi Azar Inn by Abraham Hostels is a 200-year-old Arab mansion turned guesthouse in the heart of Nazareth, offering both dormitory beds and private rooms in a unique old-world atmosphere.

Fauzi Aazar is a really special place. The hostel is very comfortable and full of character, but it's also a very friendly and welcoming place. Even without all the attractions of Nazareth, it would have have been a great place to spend a few nights. Thoroughly recommended.

A beautiful place, perfect location. An authentic looking room with old stone walls and ceiling. (Real! Not wall cover) 😁 Hot shower (boiler), great water pressure. Magnificent common area (yard) Great breakfast. Great service. Only minus is: In our room specifically, the windows were tiny. Due to the old building, the room feels stuffy and dusty (its as is and we managed to enjoy despite it). All in all we had a fantastic stay and will be back when possible. Thank you for hosting us 🙏😊🙏

few years ago I visited the hostel and had great experience, and so decided to come back with my partner. we ordered a private room for a couple. when we saw the room we were really disappointed -it was a tiny room without a window, except a small one opening to a corridor. we complained at the reception, and though they were understanding and kind, there weren't any other available rooms. At night we didn't manage much sleep because of lack of air and strong light that shone through the corridor window all night. we decided to cut our vacation short and went back home, tired and upset. we got refund on the night we cancelled, and 20% discount on the night we did spend there. if you take a couple's room - make sure it has a window

The staff was great! Attentive and smiling. Breakfast is a bit limited because of the corona but to the right extent and we loved the idea of taking the tray everywhere in the charming building of the hostel. The location is super central and you do not have to move the car to visit all the main sites of Nazareth. In short - we enjoyed very much. Highly recommended.

The guest house is located near the best attraction places. It was very clean, the room was cosy and breakfast was very good. Don’t forget to book a guided tour with Maoz, who will walk you through the best spots in the market.
