weird mix of ppl and a lot were inconsiderate.The place has been built cheaply so everytime some1 walks down the corridor it wakes u up as the ground shakes
Nice staff, helpfull. Great that you can stay in premisses after check out. Room is OK, showers and toilets clean. Huge parking lot in front of hotel. Walking distance e.g. to beginning of official Walking tour.
Top Hostel!! super chilling staff and really good vibrations.
The staff in this hostel were so friendly and fun to be with - the moment we arrived here they took us straight up To the rooftop area (which is amazing) for the Halloween party and provided us with costumes and drinks. Such a good place to stay if you want to meet new people and stay in a relaxed/chilled place. This is one of the few cheap places to stay in Tel Aviv and I would definitely recommend it for the budget traveller
Overstay is a hostel with grest potential, but still far from reaching it. Still have a lot of details, like not having curtains in some dorms(forget about resting between midday and 6 pm. I mean, we are talking about curtains, not AC). Even once they served breakfast in a table full of asshes and cigarrettes butts. Demanding deposit for a towel?? Never seen before. Not god location and more expensive prices than other hostels(it wasnt the only one in TLV I tried, and for sure not the best). Some of the staff are nice though.
A nice enough hostel. As its a new hostel, its a little disorganized. I booked and paid for a 6 bed dorm and was put in a 8 bed dorm. Its located a walkable distance from the beach, Old Jaffa and the city centre but it is a bit of a hike. There were plenty of showers and toilets. Very good Wi-fi and the staff were extremely helpful.
2nd hostel in tel aviv i was at, good thing i had a car because the location made it mandatory, hostel is in kind of a dingy car repair shop district and fairly removed from the Florentine area. Security here is good. Staff seem to be mediocre even by Israeli standards meaning they could care less about anything that requires them to move their eyes off their phone or computer screen. Price is reasonable and kitchen facility seemed alright. Lots of showers but a little grubby, NO AC in rooms
It is a bit difficult to find the spot. It is located in an industrial zone, next to car repair stores and there were no clear signs outside. It was pretty clean for a hostel and the staff is quite helpful. I would recommend it for backpackers. However, keep in mind a bit of walking to Yafo (15-20 mins) and taking a bus to city center, Dizengoff (15 mins).
What a place! good location, not far from the beach, old Jaffa, and the bus station.....great staff, check out the roof! real chill place, and I definitely recommend to stay there! fairly cheap for Tel Aviv no doubt, and the staff, again, attentive and available, real great folks! go there! plenty of peace if you need it, otherwise, rent a bike and go to town!
Really great hostel! You'll have to learn the metro well cuz yellow nest is close to the football stadium but not downtown; but don't worry Sophie, Beth, and Leandro are awesome at the front desk and will help with any questions.
Niceste Staff! Loved to stay there, thanks a lot guys we had fun and will come Back
Compared to all of the hostels I've been backpacking with in Switzerland, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Austria, Greece, Russia, Portugal, Germany, France, and Israel...this one is by far the weirdest. The staff is amazing and know how to fix the bad, but choose not to act. Instead of asking people to boost your Hostelworld rating by giving good reviews, just fix the hostel and it will naturally rise. Here are some suggestions and these are so basic: use locks on the doors, fix the ruined walls.
Staff is very helpful and are always up for a good time. They have a modest common area but location was a bit out of the way. It was located in an industrial area so you are either restricted to the confines of the hostel or have to cab it out somewhere. You could bike but they aren't the greatest bikes.

Unfortunately it didn't live up to our expectations as we'd heard great things about this place. The rooms are too hot to sleep in. The dinner was basic and the chicken uncooked. When I pointed this out they made me cook my own chicken despite the fact there were a tonne of staff sitting around doing nothing much. The breakfast is also very basic. Frozen bread, jams and coffee. Sorry to say that although there's a lot going for it (blow up pool, lounge area on the roof) I wouldn't return.
Beware. Before you book this, you need to know few things: The place is under renovation. Looks bad. Not all rooms have air-condition. Ours had, but it was too cold and no way to adjust it, so we had to wake up 3 times during the night, to turn it off and on. Nothing in the rooms except a bed. No numbers on the doors, so someone knocked on our door at 7am asking for service, thinking we are management. Location is bad. Poor industrial area. Good: they have bikes to rent that worked fine.
A hostel with a great heart and probably the best place to get to know other travelers.
I can't really say much about this place, as it was still under construction when I got there. But in spite of the fact they have still lot to do I had a great time there. The staff is great, the location could be better, but you can still walk (or bike) anywhere. Quite a good hostel for being sociable. And, in Israel, the room with an AC is always a good choice.
By the looks on the outside it isn't obvious there is a diamond in the rough. Once I got in the gate I felt extremely welcomed. I was met by a friendly staff with a cold glass of water! I loved that that they offered us space on the walls to add to the murals. It was a really nice place even if it is a work in progress but where else can you get a pool in the middle of the outdoor lounge?! i really enjoyed it. Worth the $15 for the night. Nice resturant & booze outlet with free samples nearby!!!

The hostel was not finished even though it made it sound like it. Our room had no bin, some sockets, dust everywhere, air con on or off because there was no remote. The beds were clean and so were the sheets. There was no locks on the door and as the hostel was on a car garage site on the outskirts of Jaffa I didn't feel safe leaving my things there. I've stayed in many cheap hostels but I did not enjoy my stay. We were given incorrect directions to the hostle and got lost in tlv in the heat.
I had 2 days stay at this upcoming hostel for backpackers..a great experince..lovely atmosphere and gud people around..an easy bet in Tel aviv.
