Bunksurfing Hostel was recommended to me by friends in Detroit, MI. I almost never stay in hostels so I was surprised that I was so at home there. I stayed two nights longer than I planned and will be back. Salah and his brothers are people I am happy to now know. Their hospitality is sincere. I booked a private room, which was clean and spacious with a tv and a private bathroom, but I spent a lot of time in the common areas, meeting great people.
The owner, and the rest of the staff, were amazing! It felt more like a family rather than a hostel.
The bed and the lounge area were very comfy, everything was working perfectly, there even was a heater in each room which we could regulate as we preferred.
There even was coffee and tea included, which is amazing considering the value-for-money.
The location was also good - reaching the Grotto and the other places was very straightforward.
I’d definitely come back and recommend this place to anybody!
Salah’s hostel is a clean and comfortable place to stay. It is well priced and excellent value. Salah’s mother prepared a traditional dinner that was tasty and authentic. Although every bed was occupied and the hostel is not huge, no one felt crowded or overlooked as a valued guest. Our private room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The nicest feature is the warm welcome and we felt very much at home. The location is excellent. As ours was a winter stay, we did not get to enjoy the rooftop lounge but I can see that in the summer, it is a wonderful treat.
Hostel was alright, had the smallest bathroom known to mankind. Couldn’t even turn around in it. The owner was extremely nice and helpful to all. At night he randomly came and slept in the dorm. A little odd but whatever, then he started ripping the worst farts known to man. Half the room was laughing/annoyed.
I stayed in the bunk surfing hostel for two nights with a German friend of mine. The room was very cozy, good bed and had everything we needed. On request, the owners cooked a delicious local meal for us, even though we asked quite late.
The hostel is run by a kind family, be sure to speak to them as they are very open and willing to tell you a lot about local culture and the environment.
Furthermore, I can highly recommend doing a local guide to different cities in palestina. It was very informative and the highlight of our entire trip.
