I really enjoyed my stay in this hostel. It is really easy to take busses to/from this hostel, the supermarket in the street is open 24/7 and the owner is really friendly. The hostel is also clean. Walking to the beach, jaffa and the market is easy.

I stayed here for 5 nights during my visit in Tel Aviv. The hostel is located in a great location, close to shops, nightlife, and a nice walk to the beach. Close to the weekly markets and city life. There is also a nice food market steps away, which is convenient for those wanting to save some $$ on food.... More
