A variety of rooms - from 2 bed dorm rooms with private bathroom, through private rooms and up to luxury suites - all located in the center of Galilee. We are situated in the perfect location for visiting northern Israel. Just outside the city of Safed - known for it's old city artist quarter and many ancient synagogues and the center of Kabbala, we're a 25 minute drive from the Sea of Galilee, and a 50 minute drive from Nazareth and Akko (Acre), in different directions, of course. A short drive - 35 minutes - will find you on the Golan Heights -- on the way, don't forget to visit the Hula Valley reserve and see the flocks of migratory birds (in season). Riki and Dubi will be happy to help you plan your itinerary - where to go, what to look for, restaurants, bars, car rental and even renting cellular phones at a great price. After a long day of traveling, come back "home" and enjoy sitting in the garden, talking with other fellow travelers - sitting in the Hot Tub or Sauna (an additional moderate fee if staying in dormitory rooms). You can have breakfast in our dining room (it's extra) or use our guest kitchen. We have WiFi and an internet room for your use - free of charge!
