good place - easy at low price category - very simple standard - very friendly stuff - ok not exactly an honeymoon place - internet accsess good - very good for low budget travellers - thx sky team

material not a rich place - nevertheless if you come and go all day cause you going around or you need a transfer to the airport or anywhere else or you need to get rid of your jet leg after landing well than start here. the beach is very close food suppliers all around. ok i believe for european standard my writing might be critical but i love that place.

The hostel is very well located at a few minutes walk from the beach. There is a bus stop just in front of the door. The staff is more than friendly and the price in a dormitory is attractive. The breakfast could be improved but at that price, you can hardly complain. Certainly the bestplace you can find if you're looking for a cheap well located place in Tel Aviv. You can walk from the hostel to many places, including Jaffa.

I stayed in Sky Hostel for two weeks in May 2012. I was very pleased with my experience there so I stayed again for two weeks in June 2013.

The staff are friendly and very helpful. They are extremely knowledgeable, so if you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask. I have often asked for directions and recommendations, and they have never steered me wrong.

The location of Sky Hostel is perfect. It is situated on Ben-Yehuda, a street with many bars, cafe's, restaurants, and 24-hour convenience stores. The Carmel Market is a 5-minute walk, while the beach is only a 2-minute walk. Also located within short walking distance of:

Dizengoff Street: Tel Aviv’s first fashion avenue, full of clothing stores and cafes.
Bugrashov Street: a trendy street with eclectic shops and cafes.
Allenby Street: a hub of nightlife, known for its cafes, pubs and restaurants.

The rooms are clean and big. I stayed in a full room, but there was plenty of space for everyone and their luggage. Lockers are provided in the rooms, but you will need to bring your own lock. Showers work very well and have plenty of hot water. If something isn't working properly and/or you need something, just ask the staff. They will be more than willing to help you and make your stay as comfortable as possible.

This is the perfect hostel for your stay in Tel Aviv. It has everything needed to make your visit an enjoyable one. I'm already looking forward to my next stay here.

I am a solo traveller who needed a place to sleep and not much more. My room was clean and tidy and the staff was very helpful. I liked the location and the price. You can reach the beach in just a few minutes on foot. For me it was the perfect balance of price, location and comfort.

Room Tip: Ask the staff if you need an update on what is happening in the city.

The guys on the front desk were helpful. The rooms were so-so but the fan on the ceiling only had one speed. Top speed! Making it noisy and cold sometimes.
Location is quite good, just 5 minutes walk to the beaches and it's near to Carmel too. There is a bus stop just outside the hostel which is useful for getting to train and bus options.
Toilets are ok too, and for that price, considering it's Israel is fairly decent.
Wifi is only available in the lounge and the "breakfast", one bun and coffee has to be taken a few doors down at MOMO hostel.

Room Tip: Don't get one facing the road, it's exactly facing the bus stop making it noisy.

Surprised that this place dosen't rank higher on TripAdvisor. Its a budget option so obviously its not luxury. However I found it both cheaper and a better standard than other hostel and budget options around Tel Aviv. The staff were all very friendly. Its right beside a 24 hour shop which has everything from beer to the makings of a nice sandwich or lunch. Our room also had a small balcony opening out to Ben Yhuda St.

This was a great hostel for a backpacker like myself. Sky is located right in the middle of Tel Aviv, near the bars and shops. The staff was very friendly and I met some great people while I was there. The hostel had all the basics I needed, nothing fancy which was what I expected. Clean room and sheets with not a lot of noise. Great value for a hostel so close to the beach.
