Backpacking Eilat

There is a few things you should know about Eilat hostels and the city in general. Besides comparing you the best and cheapest hostels in Eilat, we also highlight what we have liked, disliked and things to look out for.

Eilat is a resort town located at the very tip of Israel on the Red Sea; it is often considered Israel's version of Las Vegas. It is an ideal town to catch some sun on the beach, have a drink in one of its many bars and clubs, or enjoy the Bay of Aqaba with its many water-based activities. Eilat is also a common city to enter or leave Israel as it is located within five kilometers of the Jordan border crossing and within ten kilometers of the Egyptian border.

Getting to and from Eilat is very simple. If you are crossing from one of the borders, a short taxi ride is in order. If you are traveling from somewhere else in Israel, then you can take one of the many coach buses that go to Eilat or take a forty-five-minute flight from Ben Gurion Airport (Tel Aviv). Eilat's airport is located just off the main strip and an incredibly short walk to all the activities and amenities.

The hostels in Eilat are located in the resort area near the beach and within a short walk or cab from the bus station. The area is entirely catered to tourists and very few locals live in close proximity. Therefore, everything a traveler could want such as groceries, laundry, banking, alcohol etc is in walking distance and does not require use of a car or public transit. Eilat is a great place to relax on the beach or get your adrenaline pumping with water sports or a night out.

If you go to Eilat, you will fall in love with the town, its beaches, the desert on the back, its nice bars and promenade...Don't miss the dolphin reef and have a drink at 3 Monkey's-- the best pub in town!
