Property Description

Please Note before booking! We have an age restriction of 18-45
Welcome to South Tel Aviv - Jaffa. Overstay is a backpackers hostel, facilities and are basic.
We party sometimes or just hang out in our hostel bar (Rooftop in the Summer, Old Wagon in Winter).
No agenda, No American standards. Just respect and good vibes. . So if you are just looking for a bed to have a good sleep this might no be the place for you. But if you are interested in exploring the yet un-gentrified part of Tel Aviv and Jaffa, Overstay is a good base with (relative to israel) cheap beer and vibes.

Overstay is a hostel and home for arts, alternative happenings and meeting people from all over the world. Located in a former factory in an industrial area within 10 minutes walk to the Beach, Old Jaffa, Flea Market & Florentine,the hipster capital. It is a very good location if you like alternative upcoming vibe, it isnt if you are the kind that like tourist traps and city centers. But all that is just 25 minute walk from here.

We can offer you:
* Free Wi-Fi
* Free Parking
* 24/7 reception
* Free Basic Toast & Spread Breakfast
* Free coffee & tea
* Spacious Kitchen
* Cheap Beers & Snacks
* Helpful International Staff
* Free Walking Tour
* Free Computer station
* Chillout Pool (Summer time)
* Rooftop Bar and chillout lounge (summer time)
* Old bus wagon bar (winter time)
* Ping Pong table
* Football table
* Free lockers ( use your own lock or buy one here )
* Choice Book Exchange
* Bomb Shelter ( only hostel in Tel Aviv ;-)

The Overstay is a massive ship sailing the concrete jungle of south tel aviv, an oasis in the urban Jaffa.
Just out our front door is the 18th century Ottoman Abu Nabut Tomb set to provide water to the convoys heading from Jaffa port to Jerusalem.
The Overstay itself resides in a former textile factory located just off the historic border of the first Tel Aviv neighborhoods and Old Jaffa.
We built it with our own hands and work on it everyday to make it nicer and more fun.
We have both a rooftop sea breeze sun deck upstair (summer time) and in the winter the bar is in an old wagon in the yard.

We like to chill out and party, and aim to provide the perfect conditions for young open minded tourists and backpackers to relax and meet fellow travelers, make new friends with which to head out and enjoy what Mediterranean Tel Aviv has to offer.
We aim to provide all that you need to feel at home and crash returning from the desert or the beach. and of course... Overstay ;-)

    The hostel itself was the party! One of the best social scenes I’ve had while traveling abroad. The roof is open 24/7 and many guests are talking late into the night. 15 min walk to the beach. All in all a great Experience

    So, overstay hostel is really full of facilities and has everything what hostel has to have (bar and living room included). You can easily meet people there. Toilets are ok but not the cleanest ones. Free breakfast is a plus. But there is one bad thing i dont understand. They didnt allow the 52 old guy to stay in hostel more than 1 night because of some age limit. The guy was really nice and friendly. Me as a liberal, find it very discriminatory. It is like every other discrimination.
