Chef is a great place to be in Tel Aviv and Roy is a great and multilingual host. It's got a loungy atmosphere in the common and kitchen room and a nice courtyard for warm evenings. Definitely a good choice!

The location is very good, staff friendly enough, beds and rooms ok. The hostel needs a serious wash down and tidy up.

First off, the place has an awesome vibe! It has plenty of indoor as well as outdoor areas that are great for hanging out and meeting other travelers. The hostel has a great location with lots of bars and clubs within easy walking distance. It's also fairly close to both the beach (10 min walk) and the main bus station (20 min walk).

I stayed in this hostel for 1 week and it was really really nice. The location is perfect, near everything. The hostel and the rooms are super clean, there is AC in the rooms! And the staff ( Roy and his father) are so nice! They are so helpful! I will definitely stay here again!

Delicious food and best location in Tel aviv, right in the middle of Old Jaffa and Tel Aviv port- walking distance to everything any type of traveler desires. Chef was incredibly helpful in helping us plan our stay and provided the most delicious food as well as fun events, like a bike tour. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

This is a decent/nice hostel, small with a familiary feeling. You can see it once had ambitions to be a "design hostel". Unfortunatly the wear has not been corrected under the years. With some small fixing up and new furnitures with better quality, this place could be excellent. I would also have liked to see a more professional attitude with the management. But staff and the daily cleaning was good. Overall a decent hostel where I spent five fun days. Can recommend this hostel and Tel Aviv.

Location is excellent just by the main street with many bars and restaurants, and within Walking distance from the beach. Staff is friendly and helpful and overall the hostel has a pleasant atmosphere. The patio is great! The downside is that the hostel feels a bit rundown in some aspects. The shower door was a bit broken, the door knob to our room was loose and the room missed a curtain for the small window. This is no big deal but its a bit unfortunate for an otherwise very good hostel.

Nice location, and the staff was helpful upon our arrival. The room didn't real very secure, as they only had lockers if you brought your own lock. Also, the staff wasn't very help with travel on shabot. But, I enjoyed my stay, and they allowed us to keep our bags stored throughout the next day. Thank you for that.

Experience was generally good, but a few nitpicks. My friends and I were unable to get the air conditioning to work. We all got some bug bites. The lockers are tiny (big enough for your valuables, but you'll need to leave your suitcase in the room).

I only spent one night there, and upon arrival I was strongly welcome not only by the staff itself, but also by the other guests! We had a great night alltoegether in the patio they have just for guests, and then went out for some drinks, which was nice, as I was travelling alone. The best thing of this hostel is the atmosphere it has, and its location! The rest still was all more than correct. I definitely recomment it!
