“Felt right at home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

I rarely write any reviews but this hostel and especially the staff really deserve one. I stayed for a week and each of the people working there were extremely helpful, super nice and friendly. I met amazing people there, the rooms were clean at all times and the noise for a hostel pretty tame.

All in all it was a great experience and I will sure come back once I go back to Israel. Much recommended!

First of all, the booking,paying and getting the room was all smooth, the staff very nice and helpful! But our one night we stayed there (double bed Room) just befor flying back home was really noisy and we hardly managed to sleep (with ear pluggs) because there was party on the floor underneath till we left at 4am!!!! We stayed the night from Saturday to Sunday... and I guss it really depends on what people are there.

Hi! Thank you for your review, we are very happy to know that you felt comfortable with the staff. We do hope that you asked the reception to keep the noise down or to move you to a different room (that is why they are during the night). If not we hope you will stay with us again and don’t hesitate to do it next time =) we will take this review seriously so hopefully next time you won't even need to ask

I absolutely love this place. I lived in multiple different dorm rooms at Hayarkon 48 for approx. 2 and a half months while in Israel back in 2006-7 and it's still one of my favourite hostels I've ever stayed in. It's affordable and the location, right at Allenby and the Tayelet (boardwalk) is amazing, the people are great and I still keep in touch with some of the people that worked the front desk back then. The rooftop is great to sleep on weather permitting. Hot showers, clean bathrooms, comfy beds and great people, what more can you ask for? Their private rooms (both with and without bathrooms) are really well kept and comfortable and if you're looking for an inexpensive hotel with a great location in Tel Aviv, definitely consider Hayarkon as an alternative.

I was very pleased to score such affordable accomodations in Tel Aviv for the travel time I spent there.
Hayarkon 48's bomb location (literally a two minute walk to the luscious Tel Aviv beaches, and a five minute stroll from the heart of town, via Allenby) sweetened and sealed the deal.
It's a true hostel, so a great, repeat, great place to make connections and meet fellow travelers who have incredible stories to tell, and much needed advice (sometimes)...
The complimentary breakfasts don't hurt either, and if you're at all into the pub scene, the hostel's pub crawl tours are accessible, frequent and popular, as I saw it, though I was too tanked from travels to partake!
Everything a world traveler needs is provided at Hayarkon 48, and the counter people there are very cool and helpful in every way.
The only drawback might be that everything is an extra charge, from earplugs to towels, to using the computer...however, all in all well worth the twenty eight bucks or so a night, and a significant addition to anyone's travels through Tel Aviv.

Overall very good experience, friendly staff, clean, big kitchen, baskets in the fridge for your food.
It was bad luck for being at the same time with very noisy travelers (they were partying hard at 3 am). Great location many things in walking distance: 1 min. to the beach, 15 min. to Carmel Market, easy to get around.

I really enjoyed staying at Hayarkon 48 and would recommend it to anyone visiting Tel Aviv with modest to medium sized travel budget.

The staff are friendly and helpful and the facilities and the roof terrace is a good place to relax and socialize.

Proximity to the beach and its central location make Hayarkon48 an excellent choice of hostel for Tel Aviv.

Thanks for a great stay!
