I would definitely stay here again. Staff was very friendly and most helpful. Location was superb and the decks off some of the rooms were a 5 star experience. Unfortunately, some guests chose to smoke in the shared washroom facilities. Otherwise, this was great value for money and one of the best kept secrets in Tel Aviv.

Bathrooms are rough as and too small... There are three showers with no changing room you stand in the toilet hall way... If someone opens the entrance door people in the hall can see you in shower box.. woman's bathroom was the same... worst thing was alarm at 10:30 at night when we were asleep. No evacuation plan followed. Ended up to be leaking water down stairs was 2 hours before we could go back in and to bed. No compensation for the Hassel not good

Friendly staff. The hostel is not close from the old bus station (45 min walking), the train station or the old Jaffa city, but is well connected by public bus and you always have the taxi service from the hostel. The best of course is that it is located in front line to the beach and offers free beach towel every time. Small bathrooms but enough for a backpacker like me. Since I love the beach I would definitely stay here again!

The location is great being right next to the beach. The staff are all friendly and the terrace is great at night to relax with a beer, watch tele and see the sun go down. The dorms were a little cramped for five people and the bathrooms were a bit dirty, especially when people constantly coming off the beach. Overall a good stay and for the price, not much to complain about.

One of the best hostels I've stayed at. They were clean, had air conditioning, warm water, and friendly staff. The location of the hostel was perfect and really easy to find from the airport/central bus station. The hostel was really neat and had a bar upstairs with beautiful views if the beach, I would definitely stay there again.

We simply LOVED this hostel! The location is GREAT, just next to the beach. You can rent towels at the reception and five minutes later you jump into the sea! I have stayed in other hostels in Tel Aviv before, but this was definitely the best. It doesn't offer breakfast, but that is really to neglect, because the Carmel Market is around the corner and the hostel has a great kitchen on the roof. By the way, the roof terrace is just gorgeous! So, over all, a really great place to stay!

The room was fine except the air conditioner leaked on to the bed so we had to move it.

Amazing location...just what I needed...to stay just an arm's length away from the beach! :o) This hostel also has events on their rooftop, which are pretty cool and I met some interesting people, both local and international. Great mix of people. Loved every minute of my stay here!

Location is excellent, right across from the beach, with beautiful views on the rooftop. Friendly and helpful staff. I was in a room with 5 beds, very small and tight, would have been better with 4 beds, not enough room to get in and out of bed without moving backpack.

Emma was excellent at helping people with information and hospitality. Her caring and enthusiasm made my vacation most enjoyable. Thank you Emma. I wish you success in your future.
