There was no one really around much to help... The people were kind of rude that were around! The construction around was loud and the rooms had no widow coverings so it was very very bright (no naps or sleeping in!) no group activities or social gatherings hard to meet other people.


We've had a great time in Tel Aviv and the Chef Hostel defininitely played a part in it. Our room was fittet w/ a comfy double bed and a bath room. They also offer other rooms - dorms, single bed, etc. On the ground floor is a kitchen and a big, welcoming common room. They also have a backyard w/ a big table and some sofas. So there are plenty possibilities to take a break from walking/ biking around and relax. For Tel Aviv conditions the hostel can be considered affordable. We'll come back!


Great place, great people, great location, great vibes.


The bathrooms could have been cleaned more often and our room was never cleaned in the time we were there. No lockers available and a Laptop was stolen while we were there.


When I go to israel my first stop is always this pleasant hostel. It feels like coming home. The hostel is like a livingroom where everyone is talking with eachother. The staff is incredible helpfull. . Sometimes we had a bbq, good stories and some drinks. Nice memories You are allowed to use the fridge, the beds are really good and the sheets are always clean. The showers with warm water and also very clean. I really had a good time there and i recommend it to everyone. I come back!!

Amazing hostel ! We are 4 French students and we stayed 2 nights in this hostel, we really liked it. The location is amazing, in a cool neighborhood and 10minutes walking from the beach. The staff is excellent. And the atmosphere as well, we met many foreign people like us. We stayed in the 14 beds dorm, quite big and really comfortable. The price is quite cheap! We definitely recommend this place!

thank you very much.It was a pleasure to host you. Hope we shall meet again.


Great location, cozy vibe, but the highlight is clearly the hosts - warm and welcoming, made us feel them like friends from the start. I kinda miss them already. Great hub to enjoy Tel Aviv, would do it all over again - and love it.

This place is home, you automatically feel comfortable around there. The location is great for going out at night, all the bars are about a 5 min walk; the beach is a 10 min walk, the market is 5 mins away The staff is friendly and gives you all the necessary information; sometimes makes food for the guests Everything is very clean and smells good, the rooms have comfortable beds and air-conditioning. There is a hairdryer and even the ironing board! There is a nice porch where you can socialize
