One of the best hostels I every stayed in.
I found this hostel because of the good recommendations in TA and recommendations from travellers I met in Tel Aviv. The location of the hostel is very good, from here you can go everywhere and the stop for the trams is just around the corner. The surety level is very high, you have to ring to come in. The staff is very friendly and they also help you when you don't book one of their trips. The lounge in the upper floor is very cool. You can have a beer with the other travellers or you can join them for a pub crawl (what I did). The room was with it's on bathroom and everything was pretty clean and I had a good sleep in my dorm-bed. The only thing what I didn't like, that my roommates forgot all the time to lock the door. You can put your valuables in the locker if you bring your own lock. I will stay here again next time!
I normally don't write reviews but I felt this calls for a review. I booked one night at this hostel but upon arriving decided to stay another night, As I had stayed at the Abraham hostel in Tel Aviv and it was in good condition I figured the rooms in this hostel would be somewhat the same. But I was wrong. I am so confused as to how this hostel has a good rating. The room I was in was in horrible condition, the beds were old, dirty and rusty, The bathroom was filthy, and had no soap. I went down the next morning to cancel my second night and see if I could get a refund as I didn't know the rooms would be in that bad of condition, but the staff seemed to not care. I left anyways as comfort is important to me. Defiantly did not feel taken care of or respected at this hostel.
A social and friendly hostel. After our recent stay and comparing a couple of years ago it appears the hostel is starting to feel a bit run down. From peeling paint, chiped tiles, stained chairs, well worn sheets and towels. Other things to note arrival requires you to make your own bed and return on checkout and washing up your own breakfast plates. That said cleanliness and a simple breakfast were acceptable (good coffee!) and staff were excellent, friendly and helpful. For an extra 20 usd better options are available elsewhere if you are traveling as a group.
I fall completely in love for this hostel! Great location, great breakfast, nice and pleasant staff, and also great beer on the bar!
I was there at one "F***up nights" and I have the pleasure to watch the Ambassador Oren's lessons!
