One of the best Hostels I've stayed ! The Staff/ Volunteers are always helpful and recommend where to go and what to see. The hostel is located in Florentine an alternative area in Tel Aviv and close to Jaffa. Beach is within walking distance. Lot's of bars and shops nearby. Thanks to the Staff/Volunteers look forward to my next stay.


This hostel is perfect for backpackers with a fantastic roof top terrace - the perfect setting to meet new people and get the party started. The staff were really helpful, friendly, personal and joined in the fun! The hostel is close enough to the beach and bars. Rooms came with a locker but no luggage storage for leaving luggage when checking out. I highly reccomend Florentine Hostel and will be staying there myself when I visit Tel Aviv again.


Amazingly caring and funny staff! The rooftop is the best, you can really have a good time at Florentine (either chilling or partying).


Great vibe and a very nice and helpful staff that makes you feel like part of their family. Rooms are clean and good value for money and the rooftop terrace is a perfect place to hang out in the evening.


This place made me feel at home, great staff will even remember your name, beach close by, sadly the actions of a couple of individuals let this place down with a drunken fight at 6:30 am and later someone stealing money from a persons belongs while they were in the shower. Overall I would certainly come back, this is a place I could spend a lot of time with no regrets.

you're 100% right, it never happened before.. we found a way to Compensate the guest for the same amount of money that was stolen from him, as well as providing free lockers. thanks for the review and hope you will come to stay with us again . All the best Ron


Great hostel, met so many great people and the staff are so nice! Thanks to everyone that made it so enjoyable :)


Had an amazing time at this hostel. Would definitely recommend it to every backpacker, who likes to party and meet fellow travellers. Thank you, Florentine staff!


Quite simply.... Best hostel I've stayed in... Ever.


Great place, clean, good location close to beach bars and downtown area. Internet works great, staff friendly, very social place


You get what they promise you and you get it cheap. Don't expect a president suite and don't expect a calm common area. However, if you are a backpacker this is a very good and vheap option.


I wish breakfast could start earlier.


Really nice vibe, great rooftop terrace, friendly and helpful staff, free breakfast.

Probably the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in! I started and ended my trip in Tel Aviv and had 5 nights in total. It has a great atmosphere which the staff work really hard to maintain. They’re really friendly & always happy to give recommendations on things to do and places to eat. The roof garden is a great way to relax at the end of a day with beer and there was always somewhere organised in the evenings to party, that you probably wouldn’t find by yourself. Keep up the great work guys!


By far my favorite hostel anywhere in the world. The staff is incredible and create an amazing atmosphere. You can get anywhere by walking twenty minutes. Can't recommend this place enough; it changed my whole trip and was a tremendous experience.

I have stayed in a lot of hostels this summer, non of them even compare to this truly amazing and wonderful place. It's simple and nice, the staff and the people in the hostel make you feel welcomed the moment you step in, they offer you free food, coffee and tea and they make sure that you are happy and satisfied.


This is the ONLY place to stay in TLV. If you don't stay here you are seriously missing out on the best home away from home, friendly vacation, fun experience ever. I have met some of my best friends for life here. The staff is amazing. Towels and shampoo for your convenience. Great kitchen and the rooftop is the best. If you wanna go out there's always a group to go adventure and party with. The beach the next day is just a few blocks away. Seriously. Best. Place. Everrrr.
