“Very good hostel with basic services”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

I stayed at Hayarkon 48 for the last 4 nights of my two weeks trip to Israel after my friend leaved a bit earlier. I had a private ensuite which was priced close to the price of three star hotels but I can say I'm happy for making this reservation and not one of those "hotels" which seemed quite (I don't know which adjective to use...).

My room was very basic but the air condition worked perfectly, the bed was not too comfortable but still I slept very well. There was some noise coming thru the door to balcony and the window but it was not a problem for me.

The breakfast was what they promised: toast and coffee, butter, jelly, tomatoes, cucumber, hard boiled eggs and eggs for you to prepare something yourself.

The staff was very nice and friendly. I have nothing to complain! The prise was at the highest level for what i think is reasonable to pay for room at this level though.

Facilities were OK. The breakfast was not so bad as I heard. I felt no security problems which some pointed out. The staff seemed trying bests to meet the needs of the guests. But the room was small for six beds. Perhaps 4 would be proper. The kitchen did not have enough utensils.

The hostel was reccomended in Lonely Planet. It is easy to find, it is close to the beach, you have free wlan and the staff is friendly and helps with information for busses etc. I only stayed one night in a single room... It was a simple room, but clean and with air condition... I am going to stay there again...

I have traveled in Tel Aviv from Agu. 21 to 24, 2013.
This hostel I’ve chosed is pretty suitable for the tourists who want to take a good standar rest, or want to look around Tel Aviv easier.
As this lovely hostel just locates not far away from the impressive beach, it is very convenient to have a fun time playing on the beach.
The environment in this hostel is clean, facilties are nice, service is wonderful.
If you want to taste something new, just come to Hayarkon 48 Hostel.

I'm glad I've had the chance to travel to a lot of places from south america to asia, including europe and middle east. I'm from Portugal and I'm living in Hong-kong. I always stay in dorms and after staying in many of them, Hayarkon is one of my favorites. The staff there is amazingly friendly, always ready to give you a hand and doing everything to help you enjoy your trip. The place is really clean, and above everything it has an excellent vibe. Of course it also has it's downsides, sometimes is a little too noisy but that's what happens when everyone is so excited just enjoying their time...and they will provide you with ear plugs so don't worry! I've slept in this place more than 20 nights and I expect to return. I've met here some of the most amazing people I've ever known and I can only say...thank you! keep with the good work! cheers fernando

i was a bit nervous booking this hostel, since there are not only good reviews and i was traveling all by myself as a girl. After staying there i have to say that since i have already seen quite a view hostels all over the world, the Hayarkon 48 is definitely one of the best ones. Everything was very clean (shower, toilett, bed, rooms, bedsheets...), i always had hot water in the shower, nice roommates, the staff is very friendly, always wiling to help you and answear all different kinds of questions. The location is also great, you are at the beach in a twominute walk, i walked everywhere.... Another thing that might be important for girls traveling by themselfes: i always felt very safe there! Priceways, i think you get a good deal for your money..... Well, what can i say? I am sure you will not be dissapointed!! In no way!!!

Room Tip: i slept in a dorm only with girls... always got a good night sleep!

Hayarkon is full of people who are in Israel for the same thing; to experience all that the country has to offer, from it's culture, politics, history and historical sites.

The hostel is in a prime location, about a 120 second walk to the beach, on a good day but if the traffic lights are against you, then please let for 180 seconds instead.
It is also located in a perfect walking distance from the shops, the market place, shopping centres, cafes and restaurants. What more could you possibly want?

The staff were excellent on my experience and being quite an inclusive kind of person anyway, I developed great and lasting friendships with them.

They were attentive to my every request, be that to wash clothes, or simply asking them for directions to places in and around the city of Tel Aviv, where the Hostel is situated.
I met wonderful, like-minded co-travellers from literally all over the world which added to my experience.

I stayed in a private room which I encourage you to do if you have a bit more to spend than your average traveller, it makes for a less stressful sleeping, showering and waking up experience.

I totally recommend this hostel to every man and his dog.

Room Tip: Choosing the private room is key, unless you're with a group of people. But the dorms are in v...
