Our home-like Florentine Backpackers Hostel is in one of Tel Aviv's trendiest neighbourhoods. The day begins with free breakfast – rally the troops if you're looking for companions to join you on our free daily walking tour. When you get back, sit back with a drink and take a snap of the view from our huge rooftop terrace. Our on-site bar sells beer for the same price as the supermarket (that's cheap!), and our fully equipped kitchen means you can whip up a cash-saving meal to go with it. 


With its craft beer bars, live jazz and quirky cafés, Florentin has a reputation as Tel Aviv's hippest neighbourhood. That means you'll find plenty of places to eat, drink and party nearby. Alma Beach is just 15 minutes' walk away, as is historic Old Jaffa with its winding streets and famous flea market. If you're flying in from Ben Gurion Airport, it'll take you just over an hour to get to us using public transport.

Rooms and Dorms

Our mixed and female-only dorm rooms all have air con, and there are free lockers to keep your valuables safe and sound. We also have private rooms for small groups, giving you and your travel mates extra space to unpack and unwind. Towels and linen are included with every bed, so you can leave room in your bag for some of those flea market bargains.

Extras and activities

Our powerful free Wi-Fi reaches all through the building, so you'll have no trouble updating your Instagram story. We've got a laundry room on-site, too, so you can wash the salt from your swimsuit after an epic day trip to the Dead Sea. For a low-key afternoon, grab something to read from our book exchange and head to the beach, or hang out on our terrace. We've got plenty of board games in our common room too if you're not up for a night out.

    Florentine Hostel definitely does a good job in making you feel at home & involved. They offer free breakfast w/ Israelin style bread spreads & a dinner every night (paid donations) The most expensive part about Israel is the food, so was nice to have these options. The manager here always made sure we were happy & had what we needed, answering any questions. Also thanks for the free private room Upgrade for my bf & I:) soft blankets, comfy bed, warm water & big space balcony, plus instruments!!

    Great hostel with great mix of people. Every night there is a great bar hop that takes you to best places in Tel Aviv. Awesome breakfast included and the staff is great. Def would stay here again. Only thing that wasn’t perfect is no guests allowed even on the cool roof which was a bummer! Otherwise everything was perfect!

    Friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms and common areas. It's defo a party hostel so if you're a solo traveller looking to meet people, it's a good choice. Not for people who prefer quiet places. The only flaw: my room had no lock. Everyone could just enter it. Although there are small lockers for valuables, it would just feel more comfortable, if the room was more secured. Overall very good experience.

    If you’re looking to meet people and have fun, then this is one of the best places I’ve stayed at. Amazing staff, and a great balcony bar to socialize. They basically do pub crawls every night. If there is a more quiet night and the group don’t feel like clubbing, the staff will instead take you to some really cool bars. The hostel is fairly clean and the location is decent. My biggest complaint is the lack of lockers for your backpack and numbers of bathrooms.

    Perfect Location to explore the city. We had a two bed room. The bathroom was a bit old and dammage. They should change the shower curtain as there where black spots on it. Furthermore it was a bit loud because of the street. Over all we had a nice stay.

    Very welcoming and unpretentious atmosphere with a great sense of humor and playfulness. Conveniently close to the beach and hipster neighborhood of Florentine.

    This place was absolutely filthy and the facilities are a bare minimum. Great location nonetheless and good fun if you’re looking for a night out.
