Loved the courtyard out back where everyone gathered at the end of the day and shared their adventures, stories and tips. It doesn't shout at you from the street, but found it ok.

The room was perfectly adequate, in an older building, therefore with quite high ceilings. There was an en suite in our double room, which was very welcome since our previous accommodation had shared toilets and showers.... More

This hostel was the perfect place for a relaxing, enjoyable, and homey stay in Tel Aviv! We only had one evening free from our summer study program, and we, a group of 6 college students, reached out to the Chef Hostel for a room. We emailed them directly and they responded right away holding a room for us. They provided... More

I would definitely recommend the Chef Hostel, it is not a big hostel so you can easily meet interesting and friendly people. Staff really cares about the guests and tries to help them as much as it possible. There is a very good free wi-fi and beautiful terrasse to sit and talk with everybody. The localization is also very good:... More

Staff was extremely friendly, available and welcoming. The room was exceptionally clean and bed very comfortable (high speed reliable wifi too!). Location is amazing - few steps away from very nice bars, restaurants, cafés. We also loved the other guests, a young crowd of internationals. Thank you Roy!!
