Hayarkon was a pleasant surprise during our trip to Tel Aviv. When we arrived the staff kindly informed us that putting us in a three bed private was much more convenient than the 12 bed dorm we had paid for us so they had switched our reservation for us. The kitchen was another nice surprise, not only was it large, clean, and reasonably well stocked, the hostel also had a generous supply of oil and spices for our use.

The complete lack of security in this hostel was disconcerting. My room could not be locked and was on the side of the hostel facing the street without even being in sight of the front desk so no one was watching it ever. In addition the showers were located outside and were very cold making showering a very unpleasant experience.
