Another fantastic stay at Overstay. Great hostel if you want a night out in Jaffa/Tel Aviv. The rooftop bar has such a great atmosphere and the staff are always willing to take you out and show you where to go. One thing I would say would be that if you want to leave your luggage after 3pm on the day you checkout you have to pay 25 shekels. I have never encountered this in a hostel before and it gives a bad impression.

The staff and the atmosphere were amazing. I'd definitely stay there again if I was to visit Tel Aviv again.

The information provided by the hostel about the location and transportation was really poor. Furthermore, the hostel stuff didn't make our stay better. The cleaning could be improved since the bathrooms and the showers weren't clean at all. Breakfast could be improved as well, since they didn't even have milk.

The hostel is filthy, staff pretends to be friendly when they are genuinely not and drinks and food are quiet expensive Rooms are small and packed as well.

Some power outlets in the room are not working and never gets repaired in my entire week stay there but hopefully they'll do something coz that's very basic. A/C is locked at 26° and it's not keeping the room comfortable to sleep so they provide additional fan which I think doesn't make any sense than just keeping the temp of A/C cooler. Overall it was ok.

The only con is that there is no key/card for the room, so theoretically everyone can enter it any time. Otherwise, the whole hostel is a pro.

Please make a box called free stuff so, if any guy comes to your hostel and didn't have any kind information about the food and hope he would find some like vegetables, fruits, anythings which can be use and helpful for him/her free stuff. Like people those going for check out hostel can left their stuff in free box for others.

I've stayed at Overstay twice when passing through Tel Aviv and I've honestly had great experiences both times. The layout of the place is so fun and comfortable. You can mingle with other guests or spend quiet time on the roof. Also, the free breakfast is incredibly helpful for getting out the door quickly for adventures.

Cool rooftop, breakfast included

the stuff in overstay is very nice and helpful. The rooms are ok, but there are nearly no windows at all. It's a bit far away from nearly anything. You walk 20 minutes at least to the sea, and also the restaurants are not around the corner. But the stuff has very good recommendations where to eat. Jaffa is very beautiful especially the harbor area.

Very interesting planning of premises. Excellent roof with the place for tent and terrace for breakfasts and parties. Local cat is just awesome. Breakfasts a-la buffet. Very reach and tasty. Fridges are huge and enough for all your stuff. Very beautiful girl-administrator from London. Clean and discreet bathrooms. Available big parking. Pity, that towels were available only for sale, but not for rent. And they were pretty far from clean ones.

Very friendly, young and nice to look at staff. ;-) Bathing beach is an unhurried 15 minute walk away. Our room was very simple: two (narrow) beds, two night tables, AC and 1 power outlet. The walls are very thin (particle board), I bet our next door neighbor could hear me snoring. The doorhandles were a bit waggly and the overall impression of the hostel was: quite simple. But fun. The outdoor terrace with its sofas was great for getting to know other guests and to end a hot and exhausting day

This place would have been nice about 5 years ago. It feels very run down and quite unorganised. It's mostly run by young volunteers who are nice, but don't really care too much about the cleanliness and the facilities. The dorm rooms are very basic (more like jail cells) and are not kept clean. The blankets are gross and not washed between guests. We had an expensive micro fibre hiking towel go missing from the clothes line and the staff didn't seem to care or really try to help us find it.
