My experience with the hostel has been flawless. The location is perfect, and the owner is very helpful and friendly. I was a bit concerned as I just booked my room just before I head to Tel Aviv from Jerusalem (one hour) and it was Shabbat, but they accommodated me still. I paid exactly what I was supposed to based on my booking, and the additional charges are on the site anyway so I had no problem paying for the sheets. I guess would have been better if this is just incorporated in the final price if it continues to irk other travelers, but personally, I had no problem with this, especially considering the good experience I had staying here.
I even had extended for one more day, forgot to inform them and just left for the day for a walk with my items still in my bed. They didn't have a problem with this (although I don't recommend this specially during peak season).
