      The building is a beautiful arab palace. The hostel has common rooms and also double confortable rooms. The breackfast is minimalist... it could be improved. In a few minutes you can reach the Basilica...

      This might have been one of my favorite places to stay. It's a beautiful, historic building with wonderful staff and in the perfect location. If I come back to Nazareth, I will stay here again. They also have options for guided tours, paid shuttle services to Amman, Tel Aviv, and Jerusalem, and great food. Highly recommend this place!

      this place is a 400 year old restored building that was owned by a rich Otterman during the Turkish reign...lovely old building but be prepared for steep stairways if you rent a room..a really delightful place in Nazareth with the opportunity of meeting people from all round the world...not to far from restaurants..well worth the journey..

    • Classic historic courtyard house from Turkish era

      I was told by the delightful and informative receptionists that the house that the hostel was housed in was built around 1930, but was based on a Turkish house type with a central courtyard, and grand top floor room with tremendously tall ceilings. The ceilings had ornate decorative painting, and the windows were tall and gracious as they filtered the light and captured breezes and long views. While my family and I had a private room, we also were able to meet younger travelers staying in bunk rooms, enjoy breakfasts and lounging in the various common spaces in the courtyard and tall living rooms. The old town of Nazareth is a great place to explore the narrow passages and shops. We found a great cafe dating back for 103 years with the third generation of family owners. Great place to meet old Arab men to play backgammon, Towella (SP?) or cards, or just hang out with your own friends from the hostel.

      I can't really speak highly enough of this place. Let's start with the basics - clean beds, hot showers. Beyond that it is the most charming of buildings in the Old Town with extraordinarily helpful and cheerful staff; the whole thing is a real gem. We leave in the morning after three nights and found it a great base for our own self-drive trip to Capernaum and the Golan Heights. We also took the free Arabic lesson on Monday evening - great fun with Ana(?); the free walking tour of the Old Town with Noor - wonderful spice shop; coffee shop; souvenir shop - lots of places we would never have found without being taken. This evening I paid 60 Shekels (15) to join the cooking workshop where a group of eight of us were instructed in making a wonderful Arabic evening meal - delicious - was a great chance to chat with a few of the other guests.
