      Mixed Dormitory 4-Bed
      Stayed 3 nights in July 2017

      Clean and nice staff, but uncomfortable and unsafe”

      I spent altogether 3 nights in the German Colony Guesthouse in Haifa. PROS: -The location of the hostel is really good, since it's right around the corner from the Haifa Center HaShmona railway station, and the Metronit buses run from the street next to the hostel to the other side of Haifa (to the nicer beaches for example). -The hostel keeper, Bilal, is a wonderful, helpful, and welcoming man, and he speaks excellent English. -The hostel is very clean, which is nice, and the rooms have good air conditioning in them. -The hostel offers free coffee and tea, and there is a fridge in which you can store food. CONS: -The sleeping experience, in my opinion, was very uncomfortable. The mattresses are hard and have a plastic wrap on them, as if they have been purchased that day. The plastic makes a rustling noise everytime anyone moves in their bed, and if you get warm during the night, the plastic adds to the heat. -The hostel does not offer duvets (or blankets) but instead you have an old, thin bed cover as a blanket. Our room had two good (somewhat soft) pillows, other 6 were incredibly hard. -Even though I purchased a bed from a mixed dorm of 4 beds, I was put in a room of 8 beds (mixed dorm), so you are not guaranteed to receive accommodation in a room you have chosen online. It can be uncomfortable to be in such a large mixed room; I had to change in the toilet every day. -The door of the main entrance of the hostel IS NEVER CLOSED. I do not mean locked, I mean it is wide open DAY AND NIGHT. There is no one at the reception after about midnight, and there is no security. Overall: it's a relatively cheap alternative if you need a place to stay for a couple of nights and you intend to travel across the city, or in near-by towns. I would personally not go back for more that one night at a time because of the beds - the plastic made it impossible to sleep, which is kind of the core concept of a hostel.

      Great Little Place ”

      If you are looking for a cheep clean place with a comfortable bed and friendly staff this is it. The only problem we had was that the heating was broken for the first two nights, however this is not much of a problem in Israel and it was repaired. The place is spotless and the staff are very personable and helpful, the guest house has a nice homey feeling.

      The location is very attractive in the German quarter of Haifa. Unfortunately our room was without window and the air therefore not the best. A small kitchen is also in the place. For a short stay it will be nice, but I wouldn't recommend a longer stay.

      Very good value for money, but beware of the security at this location-it is very lax. The location is excellent and close to all transport. This is really backpacker style and as such will be very good value if you go with this in mind. This is not a hotel, but you will get your money's worth.

      Unpleasant stay”

      This place had real potential due to its location in a charming neighborhood. From the outside, it had an old world rustic feel with a nice outdoor seating area. But once inside, the place was awful. There wasn't any reception area or staff; just a phone number to call in which the owner told me which room was mine. The room was very small in all dimensions and I had to duck in some places (I'm 5'1"). There was only a thin sheet provided for a covering which did nothing for keeping warm during the cool evenings. The walls were thin in which I could both hear and feel the vibrations from the activities in the room next to mine. The bathroom was not clean and doubled up as the facility's laundry room. The community kitchenette was too small to cook anything and again wasn't very clean. Prior to leaving, I looked at the mattress and pillow and was horrified to find the mattress full of mildew/mold and the pillow stained yellow. This place was disgusting and not worth any price.

      Everything is very poor or broken. The dormitories are without lock/key accessable and there are no lockers. No bedlights, so only the mainlight on the ceiling. It's eiher dark for everyone or with the office TL lights on. The single rooms have no windows and you can hear literally every cough or move your fellow neighbor will make. The staff is very friendly and helpful. One night for this money is doable, but I wouldn't stay longer.

      Pay a little more and find a better place ”

      I understand that for the price I shouldn't expect much and I learned my lesson to pay little more from this place. I paid for a single room, the room was near the toilet, shower and kitchen that was really dirty. The smell was unbearable at night and they told me there is 24 hours reception. but the guy who worked there on night shift was really rude and said that his shift already over. I felt helpless, one of the other guests saw me and helped me and I slept in there room, which still wasn't that great but atleast I slept the night and took off as soon as possible in the morning.

      Reservé habitación doble con baño privado, es la habitación minúscula con el techo inclinado que aparece en las fotos, te das con la cabeza en el techo, NO tiene baño privado, tiene 2 baños en esa zona y están abiertos, no los han limpiado desde que abrieron, lleno de moho, de suciedad, la cocina con restos de comida en la pica, además huele a huevo podrido y coliflor, una auténtica asquerosidad. El aire acondicionado está puesto todo el día y en las primeras habitaciones hacía mucho frío pero en la habitación doble, que está al final del pasillo y al lado de la cocina hacía mucha humedad, no llega el aire acondicionado. El colchón y la manta tiene manchas blancas. La única parte limpia es la recepción. Tengo muchas fotos reales, si alguien quiere se las paso por privado. Esta bien situado pero también te puedes alojar en otro sitio y aparcar por esa zona, yo no recomiendo dormir ahí aunque fuera gratis.
