Well the place is in good area, but in price there is nothing included. U have to pay extra for sheets, u cannot book next night in the intetnet if u wanna stay longer cause the owner wants to charge u more then 100% of the first night price, explaining that Tel Aviv is more expensive then Paris. They send u the message that if u come on shabat u have to pay additional price 100 NIS or on satuday 200 NIS. Rediculous.

there is no longer any additional check in price , only when people arrive without checking their mail for the checking directions. Sheets are charged extra only on promotion price that was half price from the normal price, all extended nights must be done directly with us and this is written on the site.

Security isn't great- the code to the doors never seems to change and the rooms don't have big enough lockers for luggage, only small drawers to fit passports in. Location, kitchen, facilities and staff are really good though!

Nice chef manager but they have to improve cleaning in the dorm room.

I had been really excited about staying somewhere that claimed to be all about food and the kitchen, but was disappointed that the staff was rarely around and no communal cooking. There is a nice kitchen for public use but very few cooking utensils and not one good chopping knife. The rooms don't lock and there arent lockers for you bags, just lockable drawers for your passport /money. Bathrooms need updating. Met some great people but wouldn't chose it again.

Great location. Nice and attentive staff. The owner was very eager to help and gave us tips about where to go and what to see. Really good vibe to make some new friends (also thanks to a huge common space). I highly recommend this hostel.

Pretty straight forward place but amazing location in Tel Aviv's coolest suburb. Near the markets and the beach. Great staff, helpful in explaining how to get around, especially on shabbos. Cheers, Zach

I was traveling for one months time, and this was by far one of the best places that I stayed. I was only here for one night, but the atmosphere was fantastic. This hostel is small with limited rooms, which makes for a great family feel. They have great communal places for everyone to hang out and get to know each other. They have a ton of recommendations of places to go and things to do, which was very helpful. The staff here was great!
