Definition of friendly party hostel. Staff actively involves you to fraternize with fellow back packeRs. Quite special atmosphere
Excellent hostel :) A little bit crammed but we liked our room a lot and the common area as well. The terrace is awesome! The immediate surroundings of the hostel is a little bit grim but otherwise everything is in walkable distance. The supermarket just around the corner was a big help too :) and I guess it's fairly easy to find a parking place around the hostel. Yeah and great staff!
I enjoyed staying there a lot. First of all, it was clean. Guys just walking there bare feets and it was completely fine. Second thing is atmosphere. Life is going on on the terrace. There are a lot of place for chilling, a lot of people from all over the world, you always can get a nice conversation. Staff is friendly, location is good. So, price and quality correlation is very god, I'm strictly recommend this place!
This is probably a very good hostel for Israeli standards. Though I've stayed in much newer and cleaner hostels, this is a great hostel if you want to chill out and have fun with other people. The atmosphere is great, there is always something to do at night. The facilities are average, my bunk bed was very small and short and not easy to get onto. Overall this hostel could do with some renovation.

Overall good as customer service is taken very seriously at the hostel. Location is good as the hostel is very close to Jaffa old city. The hostel itself is in a ex industrial zone and if you arrive at night can be scary, but as said it is part of the hipster culture that the hostel promotes and it is very proud of. Room was clean etnough, bathroom as well with hot water all the time. It is a place for sicializing
Breakfast too late, but interesting hostel.
Great atmosphere and very friendly staff. The location next to an industrial zone means very loud noises starting at 7AM. I also wouldn't recommend paying $17 to sleep on a couch outdoors in the common room where people are constantly coming and going at all times of the night. But this place was great fun and a hummous and fresh vegetable breakfast every morning is absolutely incredible!
At hostels I am used to having huge lockers in each room to put all my stuff. This hostel only has a few small lockers for people outside the rooms, too small to fit a backpack. The few means that I could see there not being enough if the hostel is full. There is no key for the rooms. The free breakfast consisted of only bread. The wifi was great and one of the two showers on the second floor was broken. The staff was very friendly. This location is close to the bus and train station.
