Hip, sarcastic party hostel in a remodeled industrial building a bit outside of the city. It has an awesome rooftop with a bar, couches, hookahs and a huge projector screen. Many of the guests are twenty-somethings who finished their birthright trip and wanted to party in Israel a bit longer before going back home. You can sleep in the communal... More

I enjoyed my stay here, the hostel was tidy, and the staff were friendly and helpful, i didn't think the location was a problem at all, close to old jaffa and the beaches! Its a good hostel for young solo travellers but there was a wide mix of ages and nationalities here, which is always a good thing,

I must admit that I walked into the hostel exhausted, hot, and ready to get some sleep. I was taken aback by how communal everything was...but immediately fell in love with it. We ended up staying in at the hostel for both nights of our stay (instead of going out to bars) because we were having so much fun with... More

They let you paint on the walls which is really cool, I enjoyed walking around the facility to see all the awesome artwork. The rooftop bar is a great lounge with at least ten couches where it is super easy to meet people. By the end of your trip you will have known the entire staff and half or the... More

I would definately stay here again. Staff is friendly and helpfull, lots of opportunities to meet other people, and it is at a good location to discover either Tel Aviv or Jaffa, which is really close by. The Hostel is clean, but the rooms are a bit small, making them messy at times. The rooftop is just great, really cool... More

I have stayed at a ton of hostels that try to make the atmosphere fun and encouraging for guests to interact but this one actually accomplished it. I never really left the hostel as crazy as it sounds because I had so much fun both nights on the rooftop. I did leave to go to the beach which is just... More
