Hostels are an affordable way to stay in Eilat, and also a great place to meet new people from all over the world. A bed in a dorm costs on average $20 per night, and a private room for couples costs on average $70 per night.

With 360 days of sun a year, a loud nightlife, scuba diving and swimming with dolphins, beaches, and awesome spring break parties… you don’t need to leave Israel to have a great weekend away!

You can also book hotels directly in Israel and around the world through Secret Tel Aviv’s Booking.com Platform, it will cost you the same, but you will be supporting the work we do at Secret Tel Aviv.
