dinner 22$ (at the Red Sand Grill restaurant).

or 330 NIS (= 93$ approx) for up to a week. Own apartment 
(suitable for a couple): 265 NIS for one night, or 549 NIS

Travel: BeerSheva is well connected to both TelAviv and Jerusalem 
by fast, air conditioned Egged buses; ask driver for Ben Gurion
University stop. Once you're safely off the bus, cross the road,
main entrance becomes visible immediately.

Drivers: Turn left to Ben Gurion Ave., which is the street running south
of the university and north of a big hospital. Take the second
left turn (a turn without a traffic light; if you hit a light,
you have driven too far). You will see two gates with barriers; pick the
one on the left - this is the visitors (paid) parking.
