Eco Akko is a new hostel located in the heart of the Old City of Acre, near the sea, the souk (market) and the many attractions the city has to offer.
The second-story hostel boasts a wraparound balcony and rooftop sitting area, a well-appointed kitchen and washer/dryer for your use, and a refrigerator stocked with soft drinks and beer. The living area is one large space with privately enclosed bunk beds, bunk beds in a beehive design, and a loft with mattresses; a limited number of double beds are available. The entire hostel is air-conditioned.
With a cool drink in hand, the view from the rooftop is impressive: the sea, the bay, and the entire Old City and its treasures, including the Crusader Knights Hall, the Ottoman clock tower, Al Jazaar mosque, and Saint Francis church. The large hot-plate grill means you can host friends and cook a nice meal in the rooftop breeze.
The hostel staff knows what’s going on in the city and will help you with recommendations for attractions, beautiful spots worth visiting, restaurants and hummus joints, and events in the area, but the best way to know Acre is to walk its ramparts and alleys
The hostel is easily accessible by public transport or car and a nearby parking lot – located in a moat – is free of charge. It’s a one-minute walk to a bus that will bring you quickly to the central bus station and the Acre train station.
