The hostel is well located in Jaffa, 5 min from the sea. The staff is very nice and the roof terrasse is great, we like to relax and read book lie in a couch ! The place is really clean and the kitchen is located also on the roof terrasse.

You feel like old times, in a good way. Nice terrace, where the breakfast bar is (help your self). Great location, a qick walk takes you to the sea, and a bunch of good bars are just across the street. Basic facillities, but fits for a Hostel! Again, when in Jaffa!

We got a spacious class c room with balcony. Love the old world charm of the building and old Jaffa surround. Live music just under my balcony when we got back from a day of activities. Arrived very late and staff left clear direction for me to get in. Breakfast is minimal but left over from previous night made a... More

Actually this was worse than a nightmare. Everything looked dirty and disgusting. I was not able to upgrade to a private room, so we had to use shared bathrooms and toilettes. I did not let my children take a shower in that place. Do not expect any breakfast. Staff was very unfriendly and rude.

Staff is discourteous and poorly trained, facility is dirty and lacking in essntials. Overpriced, for a little more one could be at a nice hotel. Brekfast consisted of bread and juice. Lobby is on the second floor, no help with luggage up the stairs...no air conditioning. We were expecting spartan conditions, but other hostels are not this dirty and have... More

I got a private room ( wich surprised me for being so small ) and it was dirty and full of bugs. There were bugs in the terrace kitchen walking on the sink while I was trying to cook. There is no 24h reception and everyone can get in because the entrance door lock doesn't work properly. This is enough... More

The non AC double we stayed in was roomier than the AC one and the fans did a good job at keeping us cool at the beginning of September. The hostel is well placed 5 minutes from the beach in Jaffa, and close to the flea market and lots of good restaurants. The showers are rather basic, but it's very... More

The location of the hostel is great, there are lots of great restaurants and places around it, but in my opinion this didn't make up for the fact that the place really is run-down. There is no air conditioning in the dorms, the dorms are really cramped and noisy (the downfall of the near-by bars...), the wifi worked only half... More

location and atmosphere of the place are probably point of strenght of Old Jaffa Hostel, but a part of this there is lot that can be done to improve: 1)let's start from breakfast: fares include breakfast, but actually there is no breakfast available: from 7.00 to 11.00 am just jam, chocolate cream, peanut butter and bread are available on roof...

Stayed in dorm and got more than 30 bites in one night. Thanks guys. So run away if you don't want to be covered in itchy spots! Plus, the area is really noisy at night. The only nice thing about this hostel is the roof top.
