Very laid back and warming atmosphere where it is easy to socialise and meet new people. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. The hostel is extremely well located (close to the beach, bus station, shops, clubs, museums and so on) making it the right place for anyone wishing to discover Tel Aviv at an affordable and very reasonable...

This is the coolest hostel in tlv in my opinion. Because you reach all within minutes, 10 minutes to the beach, 5 minutes to the market, 5 minutes to discos. And the hostel has a cool garden like, where you can sit and meet always cool people from all over the world. The chef and family are always helpful and... More

Nice hostel, friendly staff and enough activities organized from the hostel to enjoy tel aviv. Especially the garden is very nice and a good spot to meet new people. Location is also perfect, 10 min walk from the beach and 5 to the bars

Stayed here for one night. I understand that Israel overall and Tel Aviv in particular is quite expensive when it comes to accomodation, so I accepted the 99$ per night rate as an acceptable option. I was ready to pay for the location in the city centre and inside a UNESCO-listed building. As an addition, the property has its own... More

Chef Hostel is where it's at. Run by Roy, the hostel is clean, comfortable, and friendly. What the team at Chef Hostel has done is rare: they have managed to create an environment that really facilitates meeting new people. Maybe it's something in the air, the water, or the nicely priced fridge beers, I don't know, but I do know... More

I stayed in this hostel twice and had such a good experience. The staff was friendly, helpful and made me feel like home. There was many other friendly travelers there to hang out with in the lovely outdoor area during the evenings and many of the bars and nightclubs are just within walking distance which is a big plus! Also... More

I stayed 5 nights in Chef Hostel and it was incredible great! Roy, the owner, and everybody else of the staff are like a family. And they warmly add me to them! They are always helpful, friendly, never obtrusive. They helped me with everything I needed and were never to tired for a nice chat. I really appreciated the mood... More

Overall great experience, you can meet here lots of nice people. The Rothschild and Allenby streets are very close The owner is also a nice guy and helps with things for getting around! The only minus point goes for check in arrangements! I had to wait for around 2-3 hours to check in! The same was for other guests who... More

The staff was rarely there and it wasn't clean. There were cockroach in the entrance. Rooms have a lot of stuff stored, and we got a private one. There were also no place to leave the luggage rather than outside the building, which was even dirtier. Money paid was not worth.
