We stayed during the peak season for lots of sun and city. The breakfast is amazing and nothing beats being next to the beach in the morning. Staff are helpful. Stay at this hostel if you want to be right in the middle of town. Cheap and fun!

My husband and I stayed at the Gordon Inn for our first night in Israel and it was the perfect place for us in Tel Aviv. The room was basic but very clean and comfortable. The location was excellent, 5 minutes to the beach promenade and walking distance to downtown, shops, cafes, etc.
The staff was friendly and helpful, our fellow guests were an eclectic group from all over the world and the traditional Israeli breakfast was delicious and plentiful, with hot and cold beverages available throughout the day.
I would recommend this delightful inn to anyone looking for a welcoming guest house in a convenient location for a great price! Thank-you Gordon Inn!

Hostel has a great location next to the beach ...... The staff could be a bit more friendly, but it has an excellent breakfast and the beds are comfy for the price. There are nice bars along the beach and great restaurants too.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2010

The reception staff at the Gordon Inn are not friendly and they are not helpful. You will be hard pressed to get a smile and only the bare minimum of information. But it is in a great location. The dorm rooms are cramped, particularly when full, there is nothing in the way of decor but they are clean. The Israeli breakfast provided as part of the charge is very good, if you have a stomach for that. Its the location and cleanliness that took me back twice. The beach is a few minutes walk and there are shops and cafes close by. I heard reports of mice in other hostels in the same location, so what the reception staff lack in personality is made up by the other points, which is why i went back.

- Awesome location (2 min from the beach, 5 min cab ride to nightlife districts around Sheinkin resp. the port)
- Friendliest staff ever (successfully helped me to get my bag back that I had left in the train)
- One of the best Israeli breakfasts
- Many free parking lots in front of the house
- Bike rentals and car rentals around the corner
