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

Heavy suitcases not recommended. Quite a long walk from the Central bus station. Private rooms were not worth the money. I stayed at a double room (without air conditioning) - the room was very small... After placing our 2 luggages inside the room, we had no where to stand we had to jump straight onto the bed if we want... More

All true, the only private room without ac is also the cheapest in town. less than a dormitory in the city center, we have many spacious AC rooms for 10euros more. Thanks for taking the time to write a very accurate and respectful review. True, this hostel is about chilling out and hanging out in the common areas. More

During our study trip, we stayed at Overstay TLV for 3 nights. The location was convenient, Omar was very helpful and even arranged a super nice barbecue on the amazing rooftop on our last night. And the price was just as good (especially in comparison with other hostels). We stayed in the green room, on 40 mattresses on the floor.... More

I had a nice time staying here, it's really nice to chill on the rooftop but the overall service is a bit lacking. There's a LOT (/mostly) of volunteers working there and quite often they'd be quite unfriendly or unhelpful. Stayed in a few different rooms and some of 'em don't get quiet until after 2 - 3 am because... More

Funky and fun. Loved the good vibes-- as a California native, I felt right at home. Really rad and unique space. Lots of great options for backpackers and penny pinchers like getting your bed for free for the night if you do some heavy lifting. However, it is definitely out of the way from Tel Aviv center attractions. It's a... More

This hostel is an absolute gem! Super funky, its located inside of a renovated textile mill! The space has tons of character, just like the people who run it!

Although Overstay is still kinda new, I've already stayed here twice and both times it has been absolutely amazing. I've tried other hostels in the same area but this has been the best without a doubt. It's easy to meet people here and the gigantic but cozy roof top is a great place to hang out and drink the cheap... More

I found that overstay is a really unique hostel that I have been to. I stayed here for one month and in fashion with the name I truly “Overstayed”.
