Gorgeous, clean, brand new. Less like a hostel and more like a guest house. Not really a backpackers place; If you want that stay at another hostel. The staff were really helpful, especially the security guard who sorted out my bungled booking whilst all the staff were off for shabbat and sorted out my car battery/mechanic coming to fix it from the hire company whilst i was out. Also the receptionist (male) made the call for me in Hebrew. Great for couples and families. Breakfast was awesome.

It was a beautiful time in Akko Knights - the only little thing was that there where loudly youth groups and they where running and shouting. (just as we did when we where young!) But the staff had a tip - go to the roof of the hostel and you will have a nice and quiet place. That was it for sure with a beautiful view of Akko and even Haifa! Breakfast was incredible and the staff was very friendly and helpful. When I go back, I will stay in Akko Knights again!

It is a very good place to stay, very clean and comfortable! There are, though the youth hostel is very new, some problems with mould in the bathroom.
