This is a youth hostel that wants to be treated like a hotel: the shag carpets in reception area, mold on shower curtains, stains on the walls by trash cans, fresh towels that turn out to be stained (front desk is happy to swap it out), spartan rooms - all make it ideal for budget-conscious travelers who do not mind a few discomforts.
The location is excellent - right on the beach, easily accessible by city buses, many of which have stops on Ben Yehuda street two blocks inland. Can walk to attractions such as old Jaffa (40 minutes), Ruben museum (15 minutes). The staff is very helpful and accommodating. A/C in the room is very good. An outdoor locker safe is provided for extra peace of mind.
Even if your reservation confirmation says "en-suite room with a sea-view balcony", do not expect to get a balcony or sea-view unless you get a written confirmation from the hotel well in advance. Apparently, the terms "sea-view" and "balcony" are draw-ins, not promises.
